As student money week continues, our English graduate Olivia shares some short, quick tips for student budgeting:
don’t use cash machines that charge
don’t go grocery shopping on an empty stomach
use price comparison sites
if you travel to university by bus, consider buying a bus pass
each month, put a portion of your income into a savings account
collect any change that you get or find in a jar. You’ll be surprised at how quickly this can build up
buy used textbooks and sell last terms books back
work where you shop! If there’s a particular shop you love, it’s likely that one of the staff perks is a discount on every purchase.
Can you add anything to our list?
