Students, we’ve put together some tips to help you and your new flat mates survive the next few months whilst you’re getting to grips with university life!
Plan your meals in advance:
Planning is key! It’s much easier and cheaper for you to plan ahead, our tip is to plan your meals for the week in advance. This means you can do your shopping all at once saving you both time and money. It’s much cheaper to shop at a supermarket so being organised and going with your flat mates will mean you don’t have to go to the shop every night!
Split the cost:
Why not split the cost of the meal across your house? You can make your meals cost far less if its split between you and your house mates. Organise to make communal meals and then everyone saves money on shopping and still eats well!
Hate cooking? It’s much easier if you all help cook it together! If you’re not a fan of cooking why not share the responsibility of cooking with your house mates. Making communal meals means less effort for everyone if you all help!
Keep it cheap:
Remember your budget! There’s no point in spending all your money on food so make a budget and keep to it. You can still eat well within your budget if you plan ahead so why not save some money by eating smart!
Make it fun:
It’s something you have to do so why not make it fun! Cooking with you house mates can be a great social activity if you make it one. You can have a laugh whilst you cook with your house mates making it much less of a chore so organise to cook together and enjoy it!
