Tuition is expensive enough, so don’t tack on the unnecessary expense of new textbooks. There are plenty of ways to get the books teens need for class without busting your budget.
A lot of school bookstores provide the option to rent textbooks. It can cost almost 50 percent less than buying a book full price, provided that the student remembers to give it back at the end of the semester. If they don’t return it, most bookstores will charge the full price.
