If you are a College Student, sometimes you will be in money crisis where you have spent all your savings or monthly pocket money.

When I was in college, I spent most of my money in Travelling, Food, Event Registrations, Internet Recharge, Mobile Recharge , and Paying Rent, College Workshops, Petrol etc. !!

Damn, The list goes on !!
