The small things in life
Through hard word, determination, and a lot of running around town to meet sellers, I’ve managed to get all of my course literature for my Fall semester second hand. I even talked two of the sellers into lowering their asking price.
I’m surprised I was so successful in getting my books second hand, because I had no such luck during my previous two semesters. And let me tell you, buying the books at full price is expensive.
A quick bit of math shows I’ve made a savings of 550 kr (that’s US$82 / €67 / A$78), those are some pretty comforting numbers. Not to mention, I got the books right away and will be spared the anxiety of tardy shipping (which pained me last year).
It’s always the small things in life that make a difference.
