Tight budget FinanceWatch
Does anyone else Have a tight budget this year? My finance doesn’t cover my food shop as it just covers halls, I only have £500 from my savings for semester 1, anyone else with this issue? Trying to get a job.
How can I check? My dad gave me money which is the £500 sadly I didn’t have savings due to losing my job due to Covid. I’m with Santander atm but didn’t get a student account so I don’t think I could get an overdraft.
Not sure what they're doing with student overdrafts these days but worth looking into.
Money from parents? If you're on minimum loan it's because the government expects them to help out. Appreciate it might not be that easy but worth making sure they understand you're getting less money because they have lots of income...
I suspect you're going to need to learn to live very cheaply no matter the outcome.
