17 Wines For $17 Or Less That College Girls Can Drink, And Kind Of Afford

As a college student with projects, papers, and presentations (oh my!) due ALL the time, it's very important that I am able to unwind when I need to.

One of my favorite things to do to de-stress is to drink wine. As college students, we are also on a budget. So how do we find affordable wines that can satisfy our cravings? Lucky for you, there are plenty of options out there. Get out your shopping list, ladies!

Here are 17 wines under $17 we can all enjoy:

1. Foxglove Paso Robles Zinfandel 2013 - $17

This wine is fresh and floral with spicy fruit flavors and is a red wine.

2. Broken Clouds - $14

Snag this one at Aldi! They have a Pinot Noir for you.

3. 19 Crimes - $10

You can find this at Meijer. It's a dry red wine, so for people who like dry wines, this is for you!

4. Bella Bollé Moscato - $9

Peach and Nectarine flavors with a bubbly feel. You can find this one at Walmart!

5. Barefoot Wines - $9

This brand has multiple flavors including Riesling, Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, and more! I get this one at Meijer a LOT with their two for $10 deals.

6. Chateau Grand Traverse Woods Sweet Red Wine - $9

Find this one at Meijer for a penny under $9!

7. Madria Sangria Moscato - $8.50

This wine has flavors of orange, peach, and apple in it, and can be found at Meijer.

8. Oliver Wine - $8

This comes in Soft Red, Soft Rose, Peach Honey, and Black Cherry at Meijer!

9. St. Julian Winery - $7.50

Just under $8 at their normal price, I will talk about Meijer again because these babies sell two for $11 there! Concord grape, white grape, and cherry wine flavors (and more), this wine is amazing and affordable!

10. Pontificis GSM - $7

You can find this one at Trader Joe's. It is a deep purple wine with dark red fruit and some oaky flavors.

11. Great Lakes Red - $7

Anyone from Michigan should try this wine! Or really, anyone anywhere!

12. Arbor Mist - $7

Okay, so they have smaller bottles for a cheaper price, but the 1.5L bottles cost $6.92. It's literally a bargain.

13. Lambrusco - $6

Okay, this wine is actually $6.12, but that's still cheap! Snag this one at Walmart.

14. Sutter Home - $6 (small bottles), $11 (big bottles)

Sutter Home has multiple flavors like White Zinfandel, Moscato, Sweet Red, and more! I find this one at Meijer, which usually has two for $9 deals on the smaller bottles.

15. Moiselle Pink Moscato - $4

Citrus peach with orange blossoms, this cheap wine has your taste buds going wild.

16. Winking Owl Brand - $3

You can find this one at Aldi, and they sell a variety of flavors, but the best ones are Pink Moscato, White Zinfandel, and Merlot!

17. Oak Leaf - $3

This wine is actually less than $3. Yes, you heard that right! Go grab some at Walmart!

Let me just say, first and foremost, happy Thanksgiving! This holiday is known as a time for families to get together, to be thankful for the blessings in our lives, and to dig into a lot of very delicious food that you'll be having as leftovers for the next week. However, this family time is certainly not without downsides, as we are forced to confront certain family members on matters that should best be left out of Thanksgiving discussion, and in my case, this happens to be my father, who is the only republican in our family (that I know of).

(FYI: Since I still live with my dad, it's not just Thanksgiving when I'm forced to listen to him talk about politics, as I had gotten a taste of where he stands just from earlier this year alone.)

If you still have not figured out what you want to cook on Thanksgiving, baked macaroni and cheese is something worth considering. It is simple, affordable, and delicious. I have had many different types of baked mac and cheese and most are dry. I do not like a dry mac and cheese, it just does not seem appealing to me. If you like the creamy cheesy essence of mac and cheese, look no further, this recipe is for you.

This Simple 7-Step DIY Face Mask Combines Safety — And Sustainability

Instead of studying like I intended on doing today, I made a face mask for some reason and thought I'd share how I did.


If you were looking for a simple way to make a mask, I am happy to share how I personally make them. I have a pretty small face in general, so I prefer having my homemade ones so they fit better. This is also a great alternative to just throwing away any clothes! Before starting, you will need to make sure you have fabric, thread, a needle, and pins; if you have a sewing machine, you obviously could use that instead of hand sewing it.

Oh so this was the room where I snuck cookies upstairs past my bedtime and stole R-Rated movies to watch when my parents were asleep and now I'm expected to earn my degree in this very same room?

November is such an underrated month. With all the excitement that comes with Halloween ending and the holiday season around the corner, some people skip over it and go straight to their Christmas playlist. For me though, November is the perfect time to compile a playlist of songs that bring on major nostalgia which I think is perfect for this time of year. If you're looking for something to get you in that thankful spirit before you head into the Christmas spirit or something to play while you enjoy Friendsgiving, here are some go-to songs to add to your November playlist.
