    Is that per week? Or a day for more than person? Or do you eat out a lot? So many questions :P

    £20-£30 a week seems what me and most other people seem to spend, OP.

    No, OP asked per day. It's just for me, but I like the best quality.

    I spend so much money on food, I just love it so much, and I eat at expensive places. On average I spend at least 10-15 pound on food. I'm hungry now.

    I'm not at university now, but I am planning to spend about £20-£30 a week on food

    A good tip to do would be to cook big batches of food, and then freeze some in portions, so you can defrost them for the next day for your dinner (this is what I am going to do anyways)

    I know OP did, I was just asking because it seems so high. I just can't think what you can spend £20 a day on, even if it is high quality food. Good cuts of meat etc aren't that expensive...

    Good cuts of meat combined with things like asparagus, caviar, nice desserts...

    And you afford to spend 4 grand a year on food, how?
    No reaosnable person needs to spend anywhere near that

    I can get full 3 meals a day, plus snacks etc, and those meals will have everything i need + spices and other such things and i still wouldnt spend anywhere near 20 quid a day.

    Where are you getting 4 grand from? 365 days, £20 a pop gives ... £7300 per year on food. I afford it by being rich.

    No, it's an extravagence certainly. but I don't spend money on anything else apart from camera equipment.

    Took it on account of a student year, to which the normal person doesnt not buy their own food back at home, was that so hard to work out?

    Being 'rich' you are either given money by parents, or aren't in fact at university, to which your post was useless on this thread.

    Or option C, had an awful lot of money saved up.

    I generally do buy food when not at uni, although maybe not quite so much... Call it £10 a day, on average (some days none, other days I'll pay £50 for a meal out with a friend) when not at uni.
