Ahhh, the last few weeks of the summer holidays, the calm before the storm, and the perfect time to get organised and start making savings on essentials for the new university year.

The first few weeks back at university are bound to pass by in a blur of meeting new people, settling into new accommodation and nights out partying, so now is the perfect time to start planning for the year ahead.

Students are known for being strapped for cash a lot of the time, but with some careful planning and bargain hunting you can make savings on a whole host of essentials, from food and clothes to travel and eye care.

We’ve come up with 3 essential student eyewear and care money saving tips to help you make your student loan stretch further this year.
