    So I've pretty much spent all my savings (which were for clothes/ makeup etc). I start uni this month and I really don't want to be wasting my loan on clothes- I'm trying to buy everything I need before I go!

    However I only have about £60 left, and I need to get trainers, more tops, jeans that actually fit well and some more makeup (and possibly a coat!)

    I know that £60 won't cover all this, so what should I buy out of the above? Do I spend the whole amount on one item or split it up and buy a couple of cheaper ones?

    I would be really grateful for any help!!

    I'd say a coat is pretty important, wouldn't really want to go to uni without one. Trainers as well, depending on what you need them for.. but may or may not be able to do without them in the near future.

    Would a belt help with your jeans or is it something else?

    You could also ask your parents for a loan or go into your overdraft.. not ideal but

    take a look on eBay as you can get great deals especially on coats/jackets (i got a buffalo leather jacket for £30, a zara overcoat for £25 and a tom ford suede jacket for £350)
