    Well, i havn't even planned myn yet hehe, as i'm living at home im probs gonna just spend it how it goes lol. But are you staying at home? Cos like £50 a week on clothing and going out sounds pretty much? You don't really need to spend that much on clothes. Anyway good luck

    Haven't planned it out exactly but will try to stick to £100 a week. Hopefully it'll be less but knowing me I'll probably spend more!

    Including accommodation surely. No way you would spend £250 a week on living costs.

    £90 per week!?!?!?!? :eek:
    Bloody hell man, can I go to uni with you?
    I'm gonna try my damned best to stick at under £50 a week. £15 on food. £0 on travel ( I've got legs to get around and I will only go home at Christmas). £15 on nights out (one a week, I'm on a budget here) £10 on misc things like paper or an eraser or washing up liquid or something, £2.50 on my phone (tenner a month, gives me 300 texts).......hmmm what else. I dunno! £42.50??? Working 5 hours a week hopefully which will give me about £30, PLUS the £50 a week from my parents, cos I'm lucky. That makes about £37.50 each week into savings. Boooya.
