Student money saving tips with TSB | Students

University, some of the best and probably the worst times of your life (money wise anyways) I don't know many students who aren't broke for the majority of the time, it's just the way that it is I guess. Although being a student can have it's upsides, like discounts and fun events to attend I think it's about the way you manage the money you do have and enjoy it really, as it's your last steps until you break out into the big bad world of a Job. With the lovely people at TSB I thought it would be awesome to share my money saving tips with you and also bring awareness to their no interest student accounts which are perfect for those just starting university or who are already students and are looking for an account without the interest- if you are interested in that take a look at their student bank accounts here.

Tip One:
Shop around for your bills, I actually wrote a post about this on my student blog which you can read here. It's important to remember there any many companies out there offering different prices on bills and with awesome comparison sites, it's a lot easier to find the best deals.

Tip Two:
Freeze food, it sounds strange but go shopping late at night and pick up all of the bargains then pop them in the freezer, it's the perfect way to get cheap bread and veg which is good for days after it's sell by date.

Tip Three:
Pre drink before a night out! Just drinking with your friends at home before heading on a night out can save you a ton of money as you need less when you're out, plus that means more money for cheesy chips *wink wink*

Tip Four:
Loyalty cards are your best friend! With loyalty cards for just about everything these days it's totally worth getting them for the places you shop, whether it be Tesco or CEX everywhere has them and points = money off and rewards *bonus*

Tip Five: 
Have nights in, although uni is about the experience and of course it's fun to go out, you can also have fun indoors with your friends, have a movie night (which I also wrote about here) or even just a night eating pizza and cake (my favourite kind of night) it usually always works out cheaper than going out and feels a lot better in the morning too!

What are your tips for money saving?
