2. File the FAFSA

Did you know there are hundreds of thousands of Americans that qualify for financial aid for college every year, but donโ€™t ever use that money? Why pay for tuition and books if you donโ€™t have to! Right after you file your tax return each year, file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to see if you qualify. Itโ€™s free, itโ€™s fast, and itโ€™s easy. It could also save you thousands of dollars each semester in tuition!

Save, save, save
