Save Money Renting Textbooks with #CampusBookRentals

Having just completed my undergraduate degree five years ago I can state that undeniably one of the greatest (and most difficult to budget for) are your textbooks. There is no way to get around this cost because textbooks are essential to each course. The most frustrating part is that even though they are essential you can go a whole semester with using them once a week or less. I have some textbooks that I had purchased six years ago that look brand new!

Campus Book Rentals is the perfect alternative choice when looking into purchasing textbooks. Instead of purchasing, you can rent the required textbook saving 40-90% off bookstore prices! Yup – 40-90% off of the bookstore prices. I am not sure about your courses but none of my textbooks were below $75! Imagine those savings?! Not only are you saving on the textbook price but the textbooks are shipped to you for free and returning is free as well. During the flexible renting period, you are also allowed to highlight the textbooks without fear of extra charges. Perfect for making important mental notes to come back to.

Campus Book Rentals also participates in donating a portion of each of textbook rental to Operation Smile. Operation Smile is a fantastic organization that works around the world to help provide safe, effective and free cleft lip and cleft palate reconstructive surgery. They work in over sixty countries raising awareness of this life threatening condition. Since 1982, they have provided over 200,000 free surgeries for children and young adults.

Campus Book Rentals also has a great new program called Rent Back where students can send their used textbooks to Campus Book Rentals, who rents them out to a student and you make money off of that rental. When it is returned they rent it out again and you also make money on that rental as well. This could make you as a student 2-4 times more then just selling your textbook! You can watch this video for more info.

Have you ever rented out textbooks? Were you also like me shocked at the prices of textbooks?

Posterjack.ca: For All Your Home and Back to School Dorm Needs!

Back to school time is upon us! Starting school away from home is hard and the easiest way to adjust is to bring little memories of home with you – I still remember crying when my Dad left my first apartment and I realized I was on my own for the first time!

Posterjack.ca has a great line of unique photo products that add that extra personal touch and help ease the changes that come with moving away from home.

Posterjack.ca has five unique and creative ways to help bring that personal touch to any dorm room or first apartment.
My personal favourite is their framed prints and photo boards. They have used these to create art shelves that would be perfect in any setting! Family portraits would be perfect for this set up. I would love this in our living room! The design is elegant and fun at the same time.
Not allowed to hang items up in the wall?  Not allowed to paint? No worries РPosterjack.ca has you covered with peel and stick posters! They are safe to use on any surface and can be re-used up to 200 times!

I love creating collages – sometimes it is just way to hard to chose only one photo! Posterjack.ca provides canvas collages in different sizes to suit your needs. With their easy and quick program on their site you will have a lovely collage in no time!

One of the newest trends that I have noticed are the clotheslines photographs. Such a perfect idea for a pre-teen, teenager and dorm room! It is so fun and unique!

I think everyone has had or still has the famous clipboard photo art! I am staring at mine while I type this!! I love to be reminded constantly of my family while I am working or browsing the internet. I also keep my important to-do’s on my clipboard (although they take up far less space than my babies do!).

All of these products are simple and easy to order in three easy steps:

1. Upload your desired photo (or photos!)

2. Select your product and size.

3. Your products are delivered right to your door!

Do you purchase back to school room decor for your children? What is your favourite product?
