Well personally I'm budgeting around $120 a month. Your meal plan pretty much covers your food & my school's (Carleton) meal plan gives you flex dollars which is general money you can use at things like Tim Hortons around Campus. To keep costs low try buying your snacks at the grocery store and just keeping it in your room. Also get a kettle/coffee maker, as Starbucks adds up before you know it. Back to the $120 haha. Plan for $20 to be for things that come up like new deodorant or something.  Whilst  the rest you can use for bars, the movies etc. Bring all the clothes you need from home, I found this effective because I'm a shopaholic. Lastly, Sign up for things like SPC, Scene Card and Amazon Student.

It depends on what you plan on spending. If you are not including the essentials such as tuition, residence and food...then its really up to you and what you expect to be doing1) Will you have your own printer or print in the school library?2) Will you need parking or transportation?3) How often are you going to socialize and what average of money do you spend?etc.

Hello everyone. It is very pleasant to spend money, especially to girls. Shopping is our everything. We love to buy clothes. I am a coach, so my entire salary is on [url=]sports leggings[url]. I wear them everywhere. Very comfortable, they emphasize the figure, a variety of styles. For training, some, for walking, others
