I changed my lifestyle somewhat when I came to Austin. Due to the relatively short stay we wanted to get the most out of everything and that comes with a cost. Accomodation however was due to higher average costs.

If you rent furniture - locate the Aaron Rents outlet where they have used furniture. Will cut you costs substantially - at least 50%. Also, be careful about what services you ask for fromt the telephone companies. They try to make you think that you need all kinds of expensive services when what you really need is only a line.

Although I bought used textbooks at the University Co-op Bookstore, they were still VERY expensive. If short in money, I would recommend searching out other bookstores (amazon?) and using the libraries more. Oftentimes, several books in the syllabus are only used for one or two chapters.

I didn't really change my lifestyle, evidently my way of living is more expensive. I did eat out a lot though, which I normally do not do at home.
