Poor College Student doesn't have to buy folders

Tips for future Poor College Students:

If you interview for summer internships, sometimes they give you a company folder with information about the company/position/interview process inside! After the interview, you have a nice (shiny) new folder to use for school! This is the second R in the 3 R's that everyone learned in elementary school - reduce, REUSE, recycle!

This semester, this Poor College Student got THREE (3) new folders!!!

Poor College Student can splurge on groceries

I just got a new paycheck from my campus job. Now I can afford more substantial things to eat for maybe once a week, like when I go grocery shopping I know I can make chicken stir fry instead of just vegetable stir fry, or pasta with meat sauce instead of pasta with just sauce, or pork katsu instead of just bread crumbs.
