4 MONEY SAVING HACKS FOR UNIVERSITY STUDENTS
1. Open up a student bank account.
You probably already have a Student bank account, however for those who haven't got there's yet here are some great benefits to opening up an account that is dedicated to students specifically.
Firstly and most importantly you get an interest free overdraft. Foxberry boys would advice against getting loans and things like that, but interest free money is a great way to tide yourself over if you’re short on rent,food, or if you’re waiting for your student loan to drop. There are also other amazing benefits with a student account like this, such as free taste card and coach card for example which gives you a 1/3rd off coach fares – an absolute God send. We all know that city hopping to visit home (or even just for that unmissable party) is simply a must during uni.
2. Get Active
Exercise really can make a world of difference. Get gym memebership; it's a great way to socialise, here about the house parties and generally keep fit (as you may well know a lot of junk eating and beer is consumed in the first couple months).
Another way to the proactive get some regular 'money' coming in. I always say get creative and use some of the talents you have to generate an income. I’m a firm believer that if you have a skill/you can make some money e.g. selling a product (buying something at a lower price and selling it for more is a great way to be savvy) or got great photography skills (get involved in night club student night photography).
I personally know people that started student barber shops they bought themselves some essential hair cutting tools and basically kept the guys on campus looking fresh. Something like having an interest free overdraft would definitely help to get initiatives like this off the ground so get creative.
3. The 3 F’s – Food, Family, Friends
These 3 F’s are the best medicine for the soul and gives me a confidence boost on days when I am not feeling 100. Being with my family and friends, enjoying good food always brings out the best version of me. I like to jump on a phone call, or invite the squad over for a group effort meal and a games, instantly I always feel better.
4. If you’re going to shop, shop smart! – NUS Extra Card is a must for discounts, offers for household, fashion and entertainment items. Back as it again if you have student banking Santander offers free 16-25 rail card for 4 year (what a whopper that saves you £100) or bank with NatWest and receive taste cards up to 50% off 100s of eateries.
