Tips on how to spend and save from your student loan

By Saffron Shergill from StudentJob.co.uk

When you first start university, your student loan seems like it will last forever. This is however very far from the reality. It is far too easy to trickle the money away on everything and anything. Here are StudentJob’s 21 ways to blow your student loan…

#1 | Dominos pizza. The minute someone suggests getting a takeaway it all goes downhill

#2 | The ASOS sale is your worst nightmare (and your best friend). 20% off with free delivery is impossible to resist. But it’s okay…you really needed that 3rd pair of black jeans, right?

#3 | As a fresher you refuse to stoop as low as Tesco’s finest vodka. We can tell you now this will all change…it will soon become your go to purchase

#4 | Even though you have a perfectly working fridge you still continue to buy sandwiches from your uni shop everyday…

#5 | Buying a gym membership for the entire year which you use once…and never, ever again.

#6 | Then of course you need a matching gym kit…in every colour…

#7 | Joining every society you set your eyes on and giving up after the taster session. Pole fitness is a lot harder than it looks, okay!

#8 | Paying for an uber home for you and your friends. Trust us, they will never pay you back.

#9 | Buying COMPULSORY module textbooks that you never actually open. But it’s better to have just in case, right?
