As a financial aid recipient, what kind of large purchases have you made or budgeted for this semester?
“I bought a Dell laptop for $400 … I think it was a Dell.”
“I bought new jeans and budgeted about $750 for the semester for coffee and cigarettes.”
“The biggest purchase I have made has been books, I spent about $550 on books. I also spent about $200 on clothes.”
“I won’t make any large purchases unless my car breaks down, but possibly in the near future I will buy a phone and spend about $200-300 on that. I have also budgeted $500 for the semester towards rent.”
