    Keep snacks like cereal bars, etc, in your bag when you go out.
    That way, if you get hungry, you can snack of that rather than buying a stupidly priced chocolate bar or something.

    Thanks Hazel I had a look at my online banking, they say you should tell the originator (ie the phone company) but there is a cancel button next to the direct debit so I can just tell them by phone I'm going to cancel it, and cancel it myself. We still get paper bills anyway so dad can sort out payment from then on.
    Haha they're going to miss me paying the phonebill and digs

    Agree with Flo on the snacks thing ^ packed lunches are great but even chucking an apple or something in your bag can save you spending a surprising amount!

    Oh also, when I was at uni I'd set myself a "spending money" budget for the week and anything left over went in a piggybank amazing how you can cut down on buying sandwiches etc with coffee when you want to save up for a new pair of shoes or whatever.
    what's a few seconds of pain for a lifetime of shiny?

    I always carry around a bag of dried apricots or something similar to snack on if I get hungry, it's definitely cheaper that a stupidly priced chocolate bar/crisps etc.

    I've currently got my eyes glued to the 'House Buying, Renting and Selling' forum, but there's all kinds of budget calculators on there for household bills etc.

    I took a trip to Aldi yesterday, because my mate has just bought a flat opposite it.... I was very impressed with the selection. Got an awesome appel strudel for 99p. Think I might be going there more often!
