    Hi,
    I'm having issues with student finance and I haven't received my loan yet. I have paid this terms rent from my own money but only have £140 for the rest of this month after bills. I live in part-catered accommodation. Slightly worried about how I'll cope with such little money any advice??
    Thank you!!

    Honestly in part catered, £140 isn't that difficult to live off for the rest of the month..unless you have to frequently use public transport or you have a high expenses course where you have to buy materials like art?

    I spend about £100-120 a month on food a month and I don't live in any sort of catered accommodation nor eat out or get convenience food and I get by just fine.

    Just be smart with your money, don't waste money on junk food or takeaways or anything like that. Food doesn't have to be expensive if you plan properly and don't shop in expensive supermarkets.
