Can you advise this student nurse?
“Moving away from home is both scary and exciting in so many ways, but something I’ve been having a hard time dealing with lately is budgeting my money well.
“I’ve been on my own for about a month now and I’m in constant fear of running out of money.
“You always hear about how poor uni students are, and I don’t want to run out of money before I get paid at the end of the month.
“I know cooking for myself is cheaper, but there have been so many times where I’m just too tired so I pick something up on the way home.
“Sometimes I’ll buy food and things and be afraid to look at my bank account later on, so I just put it off for a long time, which makes me even more nervous.
“I’ve never been someone who is very organised, but this is something I’m willing to work at.
“What can I do to ease my financial worries? Are there any apps or websites that would be able to help me become more organised at money management?”
