Saving money can be difficult, especially when you're a student. Luckily, there are some ways that you can keep track of how much money you spend and save.

There are many apps that are designed to help people reach their saving goals, but very few are aimed at helping students. 

Here are 3 apps that you can make use of as a student if you're trying earn cash or save a few bucks:

1) Quillo

Quillo helps you buy and sell used textbooks. 

As a university student, the cost of tuition and study materials can add up to be a lot more than expected. It's always good to save where you can, especially with textbooks. By using Quillo, you can get up to 70% off the original textbook price.

2) 22seven

This is an investment and budgeting app created by Old Mutual.

What makes this app different to most saving apps is that it tracks your spending by linking to your bank account.

3) Varsity Vibe

Varsity Vibe is a student discount app that is only available to students registered at higher learning institutions.

While the app offers many student discounts, you'll be charged an annual fee of R200 of you sign up.
