Apparently that is what I did yesterday! A few days away from proper internet access, and I missed out on the Aldi voucher for the month - I hope that some of you managed to get one and benefit from it anyway... I won't really miss it this week as I have another of those "Spend £30 and get £10 off" vouchers from that other place, and I won't really have time to get to Aldi this week either. Sometimes life is like that, eh?!
The EFG has bitten the bullet and accepted the conditional offer of a place at Aberdeen - hooray! Now we are going to have to enter the murky world of student finance and managing on a small budget. I did nearly have a fit in one of the talks when the woman was telling folk that the students should budget to spend £60 a week on food per person in the self-catering residences - I soon told the EFG that she would be finding strategies to live more cheaply than that! We will be looking into that, and to bus passes and all sorts of other exciting things in the months ahead - if there are other parents out there with children at uni already or about to go like the EFG, I'd love to hear from you, and please share any money-saving ideas you have!!
All work and no play? Not quite!
