Transcript:Quick Tip: What to Do if Your Meal Plan Runs Low
Hi, I'm Michelle Wilson for About.com. Today I'm going to talk to you about what to do if your meal plan runs low.
Borrow Credit From a Friend
The easiest solution may be to find a friend who has extra credits on their meal plan. Ask if he or she is willing to share, perhaps in exchange for a gadget or help with homework.
Eat Cheaper Meals at Dining Hall
If your meal plan deducts credits based on what you eat, opt for less expensive items in the dining hall. Save credits by choosing water over soda or a sandwich over the dinner special.
Cook Cheap Meals for Yourself
Often though, you'll find yourself with no remaining balance and no friends to borrow from. In a situation like this, head to the grocery store. Purchase some inexpensive meals, such as cold cut sandwiches or microwavable dinners, to hold you over to the end of the week or semester.
As you can see, there are plenty of options if you're running low on your meal plan. Thanks for watching. For more information, please visit About.com.
