10 ways to save money from 10ways user (Emilie)

It’s doable! A few tips off the top of my head……

  • Go to food markets to get your fruit. You can get huuuuge fruit baskets for £1.
  • Get your food in big supermarkets where they have the value ranges (e.g. Tesco Value Noodles, 37p per pack, fine for dinner!).
  • If you can get to places like Macro or wholesale stores, buy in bulk before you leave for uni. You can get really cheap, massive packs of pasta, couscous, rice, stuff like that.
  • Approvedfood has cheap food you can order.
  • The Facebook page “10 ways to save money as a student” [hiya] often has free samples. I got a HUGE jar (catering size) of tomato sauce which can last for like 20 or so spag bols.
  • Obviously, avoid shopping in small convenience stores, very high mark ups. Likewise try to resist the temptation of takeaways, can be an expensive habit.
  • Pre-drink cheaply before you go out to avoid spending loads on nights out.
  • Do your food shopping at about 10pm, in time for the discount labels to come out on bread and stuff like that.
  • Learn to love Primark and similar cheap-but-cheerful stores (pound stores etc).
  • As for how to budget – get a little notebook, and for each month/week, list all of your income and expenditure. Helps keep you on track.

Hope this helps 🙂

Important things to remember with everything we post:

  • If you earn over your personal allowance (currently £12,570 a year) HMRC need to get their % cut (even if the money is in cash or from another country)
  • If you’re working for yourself / earning an income on the side you need to let HMRC know – There are numerous benefits but also some drawbacks
  • You need to always ensure whatever you’re doing is legal and not hurting anyone else – be careful and always think twice
  • Some income streams may require you to have DBS check, licence, insurance or qualifications before you can start to profit from it, do your research.
  • Be careful that any additional income doesn’t compromise your studies or main income/job
  • If you work for a company check your contract, if you don’t inform them you’re working on other side projects outside of work they may have grounds to ownership on this work
