Food shopping on a budget
Being a student doesn't mean you have to live off baked beans and super noodles. Learning to budget your money and spending wisely at the supermarket will not only help get you through your time at university, it will become a useful skill throughout your life too.

If you do find yourself wanting to order a takeaway rather than cooking a meal, you should order with friends and split the cost. As an occasional spend it won’t dent your budget too much and why not save more money by using discount codes and vouchers and getting some cashback on your dinner?
If you order with GetPaidTo, you can receive cashback on any of our online takeaways listed below:
Another cost effective way of feeding yourself (and getting fed) is to create dinner party nights. It’s always much cheaper to cook for many people than just yourself. To get started, invite as many friends as you can host over for a meal and then watch the invitations return!
It doesn’t have to be anything fancy, a simple veggie curry, shepherd’s pie, toad in the hole...something easy, nutritious and filling. Make sure your guests all bring a bottle – then you’ll save on drinks too!
Not only will you save yourself some money, it is also a great way of making new friends and socializing on a budget.
