Investing during college can be a challenge. There are a few options to put away a little bit of money but for the most part we students tend to be strapped for cash and rarely have the time to analyze stocks. Perhaps the best thing we can do is set ourselves up for future investment opportunities. Investing starts with budgeting or making a spending plan. Learning how to spend money effectively is a good skill to learn and can ultimately help us get what we really want in the long run rather than what we want in the moment.
