    Oh well that's completely different, not that you stated that anywhere. I thought the OP was asking about how much freshers will need for that week. I'm obviously not planning on spending as much as last year.

    Of course.

    And you only spent £30? I spent that in one day.

    No, I mean when I was a fresher.
    I don't get how anyone could spend £200 in a week, that's £40 a day! Bloody hell!

    I dont survive on £30 for a normal week, let alone freshers week! Getting drunk every night cost me loads!

    I can easily live off £30 a week now, but it was £30 a night for Freshers for me... I wanna know how Mermania did it! :p:

    Yes I was the same! It went down to about £20 towards the end of the year but before chistmas it was at least £30 a day.

    Might have been free entry and £1-£1.50 a drink...if that's the case, wouldn't be too expensive. My freshers week was fairly cheap - probs spent more during the days going out for food etc.

    Yeh but how did you enjoy Freshers by budgeting?
    I'm great at budgeting too but I never would've enjoyed Freshers if I'd budgeted that severely then.

    I assumed he was including everything, not just nights out.

    The drinks were that price during my freshers week but I still managed to spend loads!

    I've never been one for throwing money around, so it wasn't a conscious effort or anything. I just found it pretty easy not to spend loads. I honestly don't understand how anyone could be spending upwards of £30+ a day. What were you buying?!

    We went out for meals/drinks = around £10 a day,
    and around £20 on a night out, or doing something in the daytime, or shopping.

    £5 isn't plenty during Freshers. Any other time it is.
    And I guess the meals take a bit of money off if you didn't do that lol. :p:

    The fact it's freshers doesn't suddenly mean you're obliged to spend more than you normally would.

    Yeah it does. You're making new friends and stuff so you'll be out every night, for the whole night, having fun, with takeaways and stuff as well.
    What did you do throughout Freshers?

    I don't get it!
