    My first week is almost up at university, spent £36.15 (assuming I don't spend anymore in the next 12 hours or so). Is this quite a lot, or not a lot? General feedback? :cool:

    I've spent my money on food and drinks. I'm bound to spend more when I buy textbooks and other stuff.

    I can only imagine you don't drink. Also, you're catered, aren't you? (I've got the feeling Oxbridge is catered, but can't quite remember.)

    So I'd say that's not a lot. Or at least, not a lot compared to how much I spent. Though Southampton seems to have London prices for everything. :bawling:

    I spent about £800 in 3 weeks, but that was for a laptop, books, bus pass, and new clothes. :mmm: Now all the expense is gone, I'll be saving twice that by staying at home.

    I started this week with £30, and spent half of it. Sunday I get another £30. Again, will likely only need to spend half of it. 50% profit margin :woo:

    well, I haven't really bought much food, and what I have bought is just biscuits and crisps which I just eat at random intervals. I've got other people to buy me drinks but when I did buy them, they were ******* expensive :eek:

    Arrived on Friday and I've spent £20 on food, £10 on events and £25 on drink. Probably another £10 on other things I haven't counted - eg stationary, and TSR :ninja:

    Hopefully in 2 or 3 weeks this will be down to £35 at the most.

    If you don't need all your student loan, whack the rest in an ISA. Give it three years and it will get a bit bigger.

    It's good. I spent about £100 in freshers week, but I anticipated that and did a bit of overtime at work in advance xD Normally I spend about £40-50 a week.
