A1: Everyday items like notebooks, paper, writing utensils and textbooks along with long-term investments like an eReader for textbooks or a computer. Anything that can make your time in class more efficient should be factored into the budget.

A9: Take finance classes, even if it's not your major. Read a finance book and actually learn how to invest. Then, make investments. I would recommend investing in a way you would if you were managing your 401k – something that is sustainable.

A6: Think of a student loan as you would investing in a company. The company may not be worth a lot now but over time it will pay you dividends and work for you. Also, look at refinancing your student loans when you can.
