Food budget in Plymouth Watch
Anyone going to Plymouth uni, how much do you spend on food in a week? I need to figure out where I'm at because I feel I've been spending way too much. Any tips on saving money on food?
A good money saving tip is to cook large meals that you can eat throughout the week. For example, I would make a chili con carne on a Monday which I could have 2 meals with rice, and a third meal with a jacket potato. There are some great student recipes out there to keep costs low.
Also, keep takeaways to a minimum. It can be very tempting, especially if housemates are ordering takeaway. For me, takeaways were only for a Sunday when I was hungover.
