Campus Book Rentals, It's STILL Amazing!

Many of you might remember this post from last year. It's all about CampusBookRentals.com and how you can save an AWESOME amount of money, and make a bunch too (with their RentBack program). Take another look at the post, because it can save you some serious dough! Personally, my major doesn't require a lot of pricey books, but my husband's math-science-oriented program certainly does! We loved renting his books last year, so I highly recommend it!

When you use RentBack, you rent the books you've already bought and get paid every time the book is rented! (Multiple renting = Multiple payouts) Meaning, you make MORE money renting your book, then you would selling it for a one time sum.

But this year, I'm going to talk about something else. With every textbook rented, CampusBookRentals donates to Operation Smile.

Check out the story of this wonderful child here

Operation Smile is a children's medical charity that performs lip and cleft palate surgery. They also deliver postoperative and ongoing medical therapies to children in low and middle income countries.

What is a cleft lip? It's a physical separation in the upper lip. There's a lot of factors involved, but at the end of day, this isn't just an aesthetic issue. These children have troubles eating and getting proper nutrition, increased chance of ear infections and hearing loss, dental issues, and, of course, speech problems. But more importantly, cleft lip can greatly increase the odds of death in children before their first birthday.

So, what do children do if they can't afford the surgery to fix this devastating deformity? Well, unfortunately, they can do nothing without the help of organizations like Operation Smile. Operation Smile believes that  "Every child deserves access to safe, quality surgical care. Every child deserves a future filled with hope" (from their site).

Operation Smile works in over sixty countries, and works to save the lives of children.

And again, CampusBookRentals.com  donates to this beautiful, life-saving organization with EVERY textbook rental. With CampusBookRentals, people save money and lives. I can't think of a better way to get my textbooks (again). And it is incredibly easy to use.

Here's some more information.

How does it work?

18 Days

In 18 days, Taylor and I will have been married for two years! It's been another crazy, fun, exciting, awesome year that I will discuss 18 days from now. There's something else in 18 days, and Taylor and I are anxiously waiting for the day. The day school starts.

We are the annoying kids that actually really love school! We've been going on weekly walks around campus, because we are just so excited. I've finally locked in my double-major, and Taylor is taking two math classes and a chemistry class. We're gonna be busy bees, but that's what we love! Thankfully, our jobs are perfectly suited for us and our schedules, and everything is appearing to go well. There's gonna be ups and downs all year long, but we have an optimistic outlook.

School, school, school! I just want it to start now!

I know.

I'm crazy.
