I think I misunderstood the question, I thought it meant "how much do you spend in the shops at uni" (yes I was wondering how anyone could spend £100 in those small shops!)

Although I'm in halls so pay that 3 times a year, literally the only other thing I buy is food.

Everything in the shop was just there, there was no order. The duty manager just fired all my shopping at me and looked like I was keeping her waiting when she was finished. I don't like it.

Waitrose will be a thing when I'm in a grad job. :lol:

If they're an OU student they won't get an exemption because they're part-time.

I spend about £8-15 on food per week (three cheers for Sainsbury's!), when I go out I go to flat parties so I bring my own alcohol... About £50 on train tickets every 2-3 weeks though, yay for LDRs 😭

I don't get it how you guys can spend like 30 quid a week.

I spend like 700 quid a month on living expenses (food,going out etc, no bills) and I live on a university campus.

Hell I spend like 80 pounds a week on food alone. Although my diet is quite balanced; steaks, smoothies, fruit - not a pasta
based diet which everyone seems to have
That makes around 320 pounds on food a month. I spend around 40 pounds on going out a week. So there's already 500 gone.
Other 200 are daily costs such as a panini, 2-3 coffees and water.
