Hi guys, I hope you’re all well and enjoyed last weekends Six Nations super Saturday, it was gutting England didn’t win the tournament but at least we beat the Welsh! I’ve been my usual busy self, filming more for doctor who and slowly getting through the assignments… Here’s a quick picture from today’s shoot, it was the first time we had the Tardis out in a public area, we had quite a lot of interest!
The Tardis is looking a little worn at the moment so we’re going to have to give it a quick paint job for our Photo-shoot on Thursday. (I’ll post some of them up when they’re edited). Our Kickstarter fundraising page has also gone live now so hopefully we’ll raise enough money to pay for all of the production costs. You can check it out here!
I’m little poor at the moment, so I thought i’d share with you some great tips to save a bit of money!
When it comes to buying food, everyone would prefer to buy well know brands over a shops own brand, but by doing this, you can save a lot of money. The taste and quality is often pretty much the same. When you’re in supermarkets, check and see if they do a bonus cards, the Tesco Club Card is a great example this. With every shop you can earn points which gives you a discount on the foods you buy the most. Also don’t be afraid of shopping in shops like Lidl and Aldi, thats where you’ll find most of the student population, they do some great food and the fresh bakery in Lidl is the best!
When you’re cooking meals, it’s more cost effective to cook a meal with your housemates. In my first year each of us cooked on a different day a week which resulted in me only really spending about £15 a week for food in the evenings. Doing this will also help cut down on the amount of dishes each of you use each night!
You will not be able to drink out every night of the week, you’ll think you might be able to at the start of the year, you will soon regret that decision. That doesn’t mean you can’t drink out, just limit yourself to once a week and pre-drink before going to a club. Shop bought drinks are a lot cheaper than if you buy them in a pub/club. It’s also cheaper if you buy big bottle of something and split the cost between your friends.
I don’t know about you guys but I love going to see films. It’s quite expensive to go these days and a monthly unlimited card is also quite a lot. I found out last year that a BAFTA card will let students watch most films in the cinema for free and it only costs £35 for the year. You only have see 7 films for this to be cost effective.
I hope that helped guys.
