Description

Undergraduate fees for universities and colleges across Canada have more than doubled in every province over the past decade. Today, the average student debt load after graduation is almost twenty-thousand dollars.

Individuals considering a post-secondary education are looking for intelligent, resourceful ways to fund their education without mortgaging their future. Those currently in school are trying to find ways to cut their spending, increase their income, and make it to convocation without incurring massive debt.

Sink or Swim is the answer to their troubles. This book will guide students through their post-secondary education, encouraging them to live within their means by being creative with their lifestyle.

Editorial Review

"Ms. Deveau shares her secrets of frugality through tips on shopping, gift-giving, entertainment and snagging a cheaper higher education ... She teaches readers how to dodge consumption-fests such as Christmas and make watching TV as much fun as spending ten dollars at the multiplex." -Caroline Skelton, The Ottawa Citizen, August 18, 2004
