With the rising costs of college education, many students resort to eating Ramen noodles and searching for freebies.
Columbia is great for free events.
The University of Missouri is great for freebies. They show movies for free on Wednesdays, and some movies, typically blockbusters, cost a dollar for blockbusters. Go to freecolumbiamo.com to find a list of movies available.
If you are looking for free movies, books or music, go to the Daniel Boone Regional Library. Most new artists are available, and, if they do not have it in their collection, just ask, and they will buy it.
There is also Craigslist, where people will post things that they want gone quick, often at affordable prices. Just be cautious about meeting strangers.
If you enjoy do-it-yourself projects try the Estate and Garage Sale Managers. Each weekend they feature a sale, posting its location on their Facebook page. Or subscribe to their email lists to be notified of the sales. Things, including books, picture frames and movies.
Larkellen Krehbiel one of the founders of Estate and Garage Sale Managers, said, “We (offer things for free) when our client wants the stuff gone, even if it goes free. Keeps us from having to haul away stuff. This keeps stuff from going to the landfill, gives stuff to people that can really use it.”
This is great for their business, and for college students. The Estate and Garage Sale Managers is a great place to find the materials for those endless Pinterest projects, as many of the free things that are left are things that can easily be turned in to something new with a fresh coat of paint.
College students do not have to give up everything to pay tuition, Columbia offers many options for the bankrupt Suzies.
