    Oh my and yh you see so many people who say they won't go out cause they have no money yet still end up going when people beg them and end up knee deep into their overdrafts ; I know someone who was in like -250 by the end of the first semester
    Luckily I worked a ton over christmas and summer so I've got enough money. No need for overdrafts either because of grants from my university and a local charity .

    I don't know how people can get to like £17 by the end of the semester

    Less than £300 excluding stuff like long term memberships and christmas presents for my family. I had £120 in cash at the start of uni and I took out around 10 bank transactions which were between £10-30 each. Other stuff I didn't include: gym and club memberships, safety equipment and christmas presents for my family. I spent money on some things I won't again like a £5 burger at freshers week (yes that was pointless) since I thought some people I knew would be there but the "secret social" was a bit too secret and ice skating.

    Yh it really isn't that hard to budget tbh ; people just spend too much on silly things like takeaways and alcohol ect
