Save & Splurge

Phoebe Tse

KU music therapy student from Hong Kong, lover of party and drink

How do you save money?

"Not going shopping. Eating ramen noodles. Maybe coupons-Cold Stone has buy one get one free. By cooking for myself and dining in, and also by going to websites to buy books."

How much does that save you a month?

"If I actually not shop and do all this, $700 to $800."

What do you splurge on?

"My goal right now is to save up enough so that next summer I could go on a trip to Europe before I graduate. Just traveling and backpacking. I want to go to Portugal, Spain, Prague-still trying to figure out where, within the budget. Hotel, eating-just drinking water costs money in Europe."


How much will that cost?

"I was estimating this recently. I think around $4,000 to $5,000."
