    After rent my main expenses are alcohol and food. I reckon £50 a week on food is pretty normal for me (including eating out) and easily the same amount again on alcohol.

    I don't travel a great deal but when I do it's usually within the UK and on a budget.

    1. Rent - halls are a *****
    2. Food - Probably 15-20 pounds a week for all of my meals
    3. Miscellaneous expenses e.g. washing up liquid, washing tablets, using the washing machine, stationery etc.

    Rest goes into my savings account. I'd like to think I run a pretty tight ship when it comes to money.
    Given you’re spending only £15-20 a week on food, I’d agree that your ship is pretty tightly run! I know many who would happily have that on one meal.

    Rent is first. For second, it might be close between alcohol and food...
    Nah but I'm sure food is second. Probably.
