To celebrate Financial Literacy Month, we want to feature Alexis Radden, a Missouri State student who is extra creative when it comes to saving money. Alexis is a freshman majoring in Speech Language Pathology and minoring in Art. Alexis keeps busy by involving herself within Cru, being a part of Xi Omicron Iota, and playing for Missouri State’s Handball Team.
To save money, Alexis started cutting out coupons for Andy’s Frozen Custard from The Standard after her friend told her about the deal for a free small cone of chocolate or vanilla custard that expires at the end of next year.
“I try to save money when I can, so using the coupons let’s me get something I love without having to spend money. Everyone loves getting things for free, and custard is definitely one of those things for me.”
Alexis has some wise words for anyone needing advice on how to save money while in college.
“My tip for saving money is to look for coupons when buying something. You would be surprised on the things there are coupons for. Restaurants, groceries, and hygiene products are just a few of the things that have coupons. Every extra dollar helps when saving money at school.”
