Top money saving tips

The top tip is to make a budget and stick to it. 

We have teamed up with Blackbullion, a digital learning platform committed to improving financial literacy.

Do not spend all the money you have for living costs at the beginning of the term. Remember you will still want to go out and socialise at the end of the term. Make sure you split your money week by week. If you spend more money one week, you will have less to spend the following week. Keep a clear record of your incoming and outgoing finances to ensure you make the most of your money and remain debt free. If you find yourself short of money each week, try and find yourself a job to cover the shortfall to allow you the lifestyle you want.
