As a college student, I know first-hand the struggle of having to put on the thrifty hat when it comes to buying the necessities to get through life. Seriously! The other day at Walmart I spent $50 of the $50 my father sent to me that same day—the SAME DAY. On the other not-so-responsible hand, I know the battle of buying things I want, knowing that I need to be saving for college kid bills. At times, I feel as though I need some sort of a break from all the high prices. Well, not really a break, but some sort of middle man to help me purchase the things I need without starving my wallet. Dealspotr.com acts as that kind of “middle man,” minus the quality of, you know, being human.
