Hi, I am going to drama school in September and am applying for student finance for food costs but not other costs so was wondering how much money to factor in for food per week - could anyone give me an idea of how much they spend on food per week?
I did write down budgets for future University and I've read things however it does actually relate to your diet needs also.
Are you vegan/veggie?
Will you be cooking for yourself?
Do you eat regular takeaways?
Do you/will you be eating out at restaurants with friends?
Do you buy cheaper foods rather than bigger brands? E.g Tesco bread vs warburtons bread?
How much do you eat?
If you live on takeaways and restaurants your food bill will be £100 plus per week (7day).
If you were to cook 7 days a week and have the cheaper alternative I.e non branded foods from supermarket you could perhaps do 7 days of food on £40 - £50 per week (7day).
I suggest look at the area you will be studying see what supermarkets are around such as tesco/asda or what ever is around then start to look at prices of foods to give you a rough idea as it's hard to estimate as everyone is different.
If you was super strict with money see if there is a lidl/aldi near your campus.
