Top Money Saving Tips
If the exchange rate into pounds has got you feeling broke (or as the Brits say, skint), listen up! Here’s our top 6 tips for saving money in the UK.
The average Brit spends upwards of £7 per day eating out for lunch. Save yourself £50 each week simply by preparing a lunch in the morning before you head off to university or returning home for a quick bite between classes. Your wallet will thank you!
Establishments near universities will often cater to the huge student crowd by offering free/discounted entry, cheap drinks, and fun themes. Do some research online about the various student nights in the bars and clubs near you and plan your nights out accordingly.
Buy a card from the National Union of Students (NUS) for £12 and you’ll get a 10% discount in loads of shops and restaurants. Ask the cashier if they give student discounts, as it’s not always publicized.
Charity shops, or thrift stores, are packed with amazing second-hands clothes and accessories that are often barely worn, vintage, or even new. You’ll be able to restock your wardrobe for practically no cost at all!
If you plan on taking the train a lot, a Railcard (£30) will save you 30% off travel. Plus, if you have a bank account with NatWest, they give students 16 – 25 Railcards for free!
Council tax (a local government tax) can be over £100 per month, but as a student you’re exempt from paying it. Get in touch with the Council to make sure they’re aware you’re in full-time education.
