Save with students? Yes, save with students! Everyone goes through training and at some point that student in training needs to practice on a real person. Since the student is practicing, you will be saving some serious money. Check your local colleges and specialty schools for saving on the following:
-Haircuts (As recently as two years ago, I paid $5 for a haircut at the local beauty school.)
-Manicure (I haven’t personally done this in years, but I have a friend who pays $5 for a full manicure at the local beauty school.)
-Teeth cleanings/xrays (Our local dental college does them by appointment for free twice a year for those without dental insurance.)
-Massages (According to a relative of mine in the business, you can save about 50% on average by letting a student do the massage.)
-Law services (A law student may offer advice for free as part of their training. They probably can’t represent you in a court case, but free advice by someone who has a background never hurts!)
Of course you may not get as high quality service (s) as you would get with someone with years of experience, but everyone has to start somewhere.It is just my opinion, but I personally have never been apprehensive to use a student in training. After all, their teacher/trainer is someone who has years of experience and is overseeing their work. It is a win-win situation. You help the student and the money you save helps your bank account!
