Did you catch Stella & Dot on Undercover Boss last night? It was a great episode and if you missed it, you can check it out on CBS.

All of the employee’s who were featured had such wonderful attitudes and really loved working for Stella & Dot. I really enjoyed watching Jessica (the CEO and Founder) attend a trunk show with a Stylist. It provided a glimpse at how fun and rewarding it can be to be a part of the Stella & Dot team. I won’t give away any spoilers but I will say that after watching the episode, you will want to join Stella & Dot’s amazing team as a Stylist! To learn more, visit: http://www.stelladot.com/stylist

5 collage

As second semester begins, here are my top budget tips for College Students

Sell your unwanted items 

If you have old clothing or accesories This is a great way to get rid of them, while bringing in a little extra spending money! My favorite resell site is Twice

Shop at resale stores

I’ve found some amazing deals on name-brand stuff in great condition at my local thrift stores! I also shop online resale stores like Twice If you need some new clothes this semester, give this a try.

Buy your school supplies in bulk

One of my favorite college tips  is to shop for school supplies in bulk Check out places like Costco, BJ’s or Sam’s Club for the best deals.

Rent your textbooks

Everyone knows that collage text book are expensive (and you rarely use the whole book)

So why buy when you can rent through CampusBookRentals?

With CampusBookRentals you will save  40-90% off of bookstore prices with free shipping both ways (Plus you can highlight in the textbooks) and  for every textbook rented a donation is made to Operation Smile 

>CampusBookRentals also has a new program, RentBack  that lets you rent the textbooks you already own – to other students and make  2-4x more then what you’d make through buyback options! (such as selling your books back at the end of the semester) Isn’t that awesome?!
