Long story short I lost my bloody bank card and won't have access to money for a fair few days.

I've got €6 (we'll say £5) to my name. How can I make this last as long as possible, food wise?
Buy a brain for £4.
Use leftover £1 to get a bus (or walk and use £1 on sweets) to the bank to withdraw money.

How about you take your own advice and read the whole thread to see his excuse as to why he can't do that?

Edit: Also I don't think brains can be picked up that cheap these days. Though I guess it's worth a look on ebay.

If you have a fiver, you can do it easily. As long as you're prepared to live off bread and pasta.

Buy some electronic stuff and someliquid nitrogen. Build a stasis pod and freeze yourself until your new bank card comes.
OR just go inside the bank and withdraw some money.

I used to think this before I went to a local sandwich shop and got a long baguette with whatever I wanted in it (usually have cheese, tomato, lettuce and chicken mayo) for £2.20 - much much cheaper and much much nicer. Bearing in mind it was basically a footlong baguette and the mayo had *actual* chicken in it as opposed to the reformed meat subway feed you.

But he doesn't need a bank card to withdraw money, he can just go to the bank with a passport/driving licence and withdraw money that way.

I did a week on £6, about this time last year, and ate reduced to clear bread with Tesco Value marmalade, Teso Value custard creams (sooo cheap and actually quite tasty), rice, tinned kidney beans, tuna, sweet chilli sauce (it was about 70p for a bottle, and made everything else taste so much better). It was doable...

You just quoted but failed to read what it was you were actually quoting. I said read the whole thread, the first page more specifically; the OP gives a reason as to why he cannot just go in to a bank with ID to withdraw money.

No I'm in Ireland and it was my UK bank card that I use/lost. I can use it to withdraw money because Visa handle the transactions (I think), I don't think I can just go into a different bank and withdraw money....

I have an Irish bank account, but even then it takes a good few days for an 'international' transfer, and costs a silly amount of money

Investigate whether you university offers emergency loans to students. I know mine offers immediate loans of about £200 if you go to see the Dean of Students. The registry also offers emergency loans.

1 large onion = 20p
Garlic bulb = 20p
Tomatoe puree = 65p
1kg value porridge = 85p
Milk = 99p
