    Tuna pasta. I live off it quite a few times a week. If you get really desperate you can cereal for 2 meals.

    Pancakes or 'Crepes.

    100g-200g of Self-raising flour (depending on how many you're cooking for)
    1 or 2 eggs (depending on how many you are cooking)
    Milk.

    Add a little bit of oil to pan so your pancake won't stick to the pan.

    You can add in things you want like cheese, mushrooms, etc for savoury pancakes.

    If you want sweet options, add sugar into the mix and add whatever you fancy!

    :P

    Cheap. And yum

    Haha nah! I was talking to one of my mates when we came outta lectures and said that if I ran out of cereal bars then I ate dry cereal. She said she loves it too.

    Nab loads of coupons if you can as well. We got a little booklet during freshers week. I stole a booklet full of Subway coupons from work the other day as well.

    Served with garlic bread (which knocks the cost up quite a bit, so can be done without.)
    You can get a baguette for like 48p.

    My fave is ready prepared broccoli £1, boiled. A spoon of cheese spread stired through and then mixed with couscous made with vegetable stock. Its yummy and probably costs about £1.25 in total. Really tasty and very little work and healthy too.

    No, not expensive at all really. I buy Tesco Value pasta or 19p. Its not that big a packet though so it might be cheaper to buy one of those huge ones for about £2 something.

    Ooh yeah thinking about baguettes, anyone whose going to b'ham area should check out Simply Baguettes or Baguette World. About £1-£1.50 for a baguette, crisps/fruit, can of pop/bottle of water.

    If you're on a budget, just get normal broccoli for half the price.

    It's good because you can make your own garlic bread very cheaply.
    And bread is a carbohydrate, so fills you up.

    Garlic bread, soup and salad! Satisfying and healthy.
