If you're applying for college right now or thinking about transferring to another school, it doesn't hurt to do some research on various types of financial aid provided by the school.?
Aside from the obvious chunk of cash you'll save in the long run, several scholarships offer all sorts of perks and benefits -- semester stipends, group trips, special access to useful resources, etc. If you're already enrolled but haven't received any aid, keep trying! If your grades are good and you show you mean business, many scholarship programs give you the opportunity to apply each semester.
Also try fastweb.com there are plenty of great scholarships for all ages...

Budget Planning is an important aspect of "penny pinching." Everyone should create at least a monthly budget so that they are mindful of their expenses. Even if you simply look at how you spent your money at least once a month this would be eye opening to where you may need to cut back or prioritize.
Below are a few good places to download a budget planner application:

I have used Chegg before and it's nice if you need school books on a budget, especially expensive text books that are typically over $100 you can get for much less than that. Also, if you are taking a summer class or interim class you can rent these books for less time making the bill even cheaper!

Most of us get sick of junk mail. We typically throw it out immediately and don't look at it if it isn't addressed specifically to us. I do the same thing. There is one coupon directory book, however, that may be of some use for those of us on a budget. I took the time to actually look through a coupon book I received (that was not addressed to anyone it just came in the mail) and on the front cover it is simply titled: THE SPRINGS Coupon Directory. There were a lot of great coupons for restaurants I have never been to or seen so this creates an opportunity to go somewhere I have never been before and receive a discount. Some of the better coupons were for: The Peak Grill $5 dollar off meal Bambino's Free Dinner Entree (BOGO) Taste of India BOGO Lunch Buffet Cleats Sports Bar BOGO Sandwiches East Coast Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner 50% off Conway's Famous Giant Hambergers 1/2 price
These were just the coupons for restrants! I personally dont cook that often and eat out more often so it would be worth it to cut out some of these coupons to use when I go out with friends and family.
Haggle.com is another site that allows you to pay for bids and bid on items at an extremely low price. They also explain how this process works and why they are able to sell these items for much cheaper than retail price. Here are the basic rules:
•Pre-purchase your bids in packs of 20, 40, 75, 150, 300 or 600 •Bid for the opportunity to buy electronics and gift cards at a fraction of their retail cost •Each bid placed adds more time to the auction and increases the item's final purchase price •Be the highest bidder when the auction ends and the item is yours to buy at the final auction price
I am a huge fan of Ebay. However, as I am looking for extreme deals and discounts on the web there are a few different kinds of sites I have never come across before. Swoopo is a site where you buy bids and then bid on items for SUPER cheap. Obviously, the money for the bids goes to the cause of how cheap these items are sold for; but in a sense you are splitting the cost with everyone else who bids on the item. If everyone pays $1 per bid and 50 people bid thats $50 dollars that goes toward the purchase of this product that you didn't have to pay for. For example: I just watched the bidding on a 32G Ipod that is normally over $300 dollars sell for $110 dollars! I also watched an aution for a PS3 (over $300 retail) go for $51!!
If you ask me this may be something I would use for high dollar items. It seems to be much cheaper; the only drawback is having to watch the auction, this takes time so try and bid on things that are close to the final sale time.
