The Price of Student Vices Creates Debt for Buying Wastefully

 - Oct 23, 2012
Being a student can be a difficult venture and letting loose is always a great way to remind yourself of the price of your student vices and how they are affecting your declining bank account. These statistics are shocking and will make one want to stop spending money right away. The average student spends an approximate $12,500 a year on unnecessary items, including shoes, alcohol, energy drinks, coffee and takeout food.

Students spending this money often don't recognize the amount of money that is actually being spent and often regret to see the many amazing things they could have purchased instead. Much like a vacation, a MacBook Pro, a digital SLR camera or all the way up to a down payment on a home.
