Cool Hacks for Lazy Students

College doesn’t have to be a rough experience, as long as you learn how to joggle your academic life, social life, and your need to pay the bills and support yourself all at the same time. You might have a difficult time making the grade, and when you do, you might feel that you are simply not smart enough compared to your companions. What if you learned to be lazy smart instead?

Lazy Smart Doesn’t Mean Being Lazy

First things first, “lazy smart” does not equal “being lazy”. It is a concept that refers to a person who knows how to be smart concerning the way they spend their time, energy, and money in order to get the best results possible, every time.

We could all use more than 24 hours in a day, and students probably experience this type of frustration and desire more often than a lot of people. Luckily, there are plenty of smart hacks that can help you achieve just that, while also helping you save money and, why not, energy.

Take Advantage of Student Discounts

Your college degree will land you a job and get you started on your career path, but, for now, your student ID will bring you some nice perks as well. Namely a number of different discounts from companies willing to support students. Whether you need to shop for some new clothes, shoes, software for school, a new laptop for your classes, takeout food or professional carpet cleaning services like the ones offered by the guys at, you should have no problem coming across plenty of discount codes and ranging from 10 to 30 percent or more. You should be able to enjoy these discounts both online and offline, so remember to always carry your student ID on you at all times so you do not miss out a cool price discount.

Get an On-Campus Job

While you might have a difficult time finding a part-time while tackling your full-time student life, you could focus on getting a job on campus to make things easier. You should start earning the extra money you need while also directing your full attention to your studies. Look for a job in a food court for students on campus, a job in the school in administration or become a tutor in your spare time. You will get the chance to set your own working hours and enjoy more freedom and a rounder income.

Save Hundreds Buying Used Textbooks

The majority of universities and colleges work with advanced buyback programs for student books and school gear. You probably already know just how expensive textbooks can get, so enrolling in such a program could definitely save you hundreds of dollars, if not more.

Socialize Indoors and Save Money

While socializing and making new friends is an essential part of any college experience, being broke most of the time can make this particular experience more difficult. However, this does not mean having to give up on it simply because you do not have the money needed to out a few times a week. You could, instead, make some plans to hang out in a nearby park, at the beach, or, why not, right inside your dorm room, having a movie night or playing board games, cooking popcorn and pasta for a casual get-together and taking the time to also squeeze in some studying.

Dry Your Clothes Faster Using a Dry Towel

If you need to wait around for your laundry to dry several times a week, consider putting a dry towel inside the dryer once the spin cycle is complete. This will help absorb a lot of the extra moisture and considerably shorten the time you will spend in the laundromat room.
