    Where I'm living now, a 45 minute walk but a 10 minute tube ride
    I'd rather not take the bus because it makes me sick so I actually have no idea how long it'll take

    true you can do a food shop for £10 - £15 a week if you go at the right time for the most choice on the reduced items and take advantage of things like two for the price of one also for baked goods dumpster diving is a viable option although it's a grey area under UK law some places and coppers don't mind some are a bit anal about it.

    Let us be frank here
    1] Don't assume you know a thing about me or my circumstances.
    2] The post is obviously not talking about people who can be completely pauperized this is a general point.

    Not to mention you can be as smart and savvy with money as you like you can still loose everything and more if the winds change.

    Mine used to be about 30 mins drive. But I changed unis and am now on campus. I do miss commuting though. Nothing beats the comfort and privacy of your own home.
