So, I had initially budgeted about $450 for my textbooks. On my first trip to the campus bookstore, I bought 3 of the books I needed for just over $101. Then, on my second trip, I bought a couple of textbooks and a couple of the novels I need for my literary legal course, and I bought the novels used. They cost about 50-60% of the sticker price, and they were in really good shape.

My bill today came to $232 and some odd cents.

That brings my total expenditures on textbooks for this term to $333 or so, which is $117 under budget. That is going into my "AfterGrad" savings fund :)

It feels sooo good to save me some cash, especially since I don't have a summer job or any potential sub-letters lined up to take over my lease for the summer :$
