If you’re not making the most of your student bank account, it’s no better than a penny jar. Here’s how to wring the most from it!
We all know that remaining healthy at university can be an almost impossible task. From the greasy burger truck calling your name after a late student night out, to the hungover McDonalds breakfast muffin the next morning, it can be a real struggle for students. Statistics show that 46% of freshers miss their mum’s cooking when they take the leap into university. Weekly shops can be really tough when the multi-pack of Walkers crisps is far cheaper (and tastier) than the small bag of fresh spinach, making it harder for students to choose the healthy option. Why would you spend £10 on a balanced healthy dinner, when you can spend £3 on a quick, easy and cheap microwave meal?
There are loads of exciting things about going to university – venturing off on your own to a new place, meeting like-minded people, maybe living away from your parents for the first time. Sorting out your bank account, however, is not one of those things. It’s dull, but if you get organised and find the right one, you’ll make life a lot easier once you start spending in your first term.
