About Me

Why is it that the internet feels so inclined to continuously ask us to write about ourselves? I may as well post “PLEASE LIKE ME” into this blank void and save us all this horrible one sided, awkward small talk. Sadly, I’m a sucker for internet etiquette, so here we go, let’s break the figurative ice…

First off, here’s a list of things that I am:
I’m Sara. I’m 20 years old. I’ve just finished my English undergraduate degree (let’s not talk about it). And, most importantly, like most people of my age, I am fairly broke the vast majority of the time.

Secondly, a list of things I am not:
I’m no money saving expert. I can neither compare the market for you, nor can I sing opera as well as that lovely jolly man off the telly that everyone has so much to say about.

Thirdly, what on earth I’m doing here:
What I can offer for you is some real life advice about how I’m managing to live as a student without going stir crazy about my lack of funds. Voucher websites are great, but I’ve found that student blogs written by students are few and far between. From deliciously affordable recipe ideas, to how I managed to stay in London for a week rent free, I think there’ll probably be something for everyone. Trying to live the champagne lifestyle on a cider budget? I might not know how to blag you a free bottle of Dom PĂ©rignon (if anyone does happen to have that one figured out, I’m all ears), but I reckon I can meet you half way and be able to send you in the direction of a half price cocktail or seven.

If you’ve got any suggestions or questions, then feel free to @reply me on Twitter or send me an email. Head on over to the Contact page to find out how. I might not have all the answers, but I’ll be more than happy to try and help!
