Finals week is already hectic enough without the impending doom of having to pack up your entire room and move out and every single year hustling through the week trying to pass classes and think of a new way to fit the mini fridge into their four-door sedan.

Having everything that is stressful land in the same week of the semester is hard. It can make life even harder than it needs to be. That is why I have a few good tips on how to pack up at the end of the year. It will always have to happen around exams, but if you plan accordingly, you can save yourself some time.

We’ve reached that time of year. It is finals week. Finals week is a jam-packed week of exams, projects, papers and more. For all college students, it is a week fueled by coffee and sleep deprivation. We have all been there, and it can be so bad for everyone’s mental and physical health. Everyone expects finals week to be a stressed filled panicked week where no one sleeps. It has become a campus culture to freak out and makes it known that you are freaking out. I’m here to tell you there is a different way that will result in more sleep and less money spent at the library coffee shop.

Starting out the year for college students is a magical time with a bank account filled all the way to the top. After spending the fall semester breaking into the fund that a summer job brought and working through winter break to build up a small amount of what you lost, something important comes to mind… Budgeting.

Creating a budget is something no one ever really wants to do but for people with such limited funds, like college students, it's super important to decide what to spend money on and how much is allowed.
