Student budget

Hi, can you give me any advice about how to budget for when I start university? I'm worried that I won't be able to make my grant last the year.
Answered by Alison Patterson
Work out how much you have to spend each week and stick to it. My colleague recently went to university, his friend withdrew her cash for the week every Monday and she never ever overspent. Maybe give that a go? It's hard, if there's one tip I can give you it's don't take your bank cards with you on a night out.
