    I hoping to not spend above £100 a week. Depending on which accommodation I get, I'll have between £100 and £80 a week to play with (for spending on food, socialising, textbooks, etc.). Though, I'll be living in the south where everything is more expensive.
    That's very true We went on holiday once to East Anglia region and a tin of custard was 80p as opposed to 50p where I live. That was several years ago. Just a useful fact :yes:

    How on earth do some of you live on such little money?

    Surely just food for a week would be £30, but you need to add plenty of things (going out, be it pubs, bars or clubs; books and other supplies; general shopping etc.)

    I think I spend around £30 a week, sometimes much less... maybe £10 because I only really buy food on alternate weeks.

    Well about £15-£20 on food shopping (I only really eat eggs, stir fry, chicken, rice and cereal), then on a night out I'll spend about £20 so if I go out 3 times a week then that's about £80 I live off.

    Excluding rent, I can live on about £30.
    I once made £10 last a week though - but it was tough, and I've told myself that I'll never allow myself to get into that position again.

    I figure if I buy a load of stuff from macro before I go, that should see me through a term on cleaning products, toiletries (apart from bog roll, takes up too much room in the car) and that sort of thing I should just need to buy food and what ever else I want (booze, climbing kit, more booze)

    £50 a week: about £20-25 for food, £5 washing (bloody uni halls), the rest usually went on a night out...so I try to cut down on drinking.

    I have roughly £70 a week. I do a food shop once every two weeks which comes to between £50-60.

    Last year, I spent around £40 a week at uni, not including food (as I lived in catered halls).

    As I'm moving into a house in September, I probably would spend £60-80 week (including food)

    Personally, I spent around £10 a week in total whilst at university; now, I spend £40 a week on food alone and don't know how I managed. :p:
