Cutting your Costs

Cutting your Costs

As a student, it can seem difficult to make your money stretch as far as it needs to.

Where do I start?

You should prioritise the things that you have to pay for such as rent, bills and food. By working out your essential costs first, you’ll be able to see how much money you have left for fun stuff, such as nights out or new clothes.

Start with prioritising your spending by making a list with two columns headed ‘Have to Spend’ and ‘Choose to Spend’.
