What To Take To Uni – Part 3

The Food Edit

So this isn’t really a list of things to take with you, more things you should get when you arrive.

Everyone knows, student loans don’t last long when rent and bills are taken out of them! So it becomes important to have some basics in your cupboard and fridge, just so you can make everything taste a little better when money gets tight. Here’s my list of what you should get at the start of the year and try to keep topped up throughout!

  1. Pasta
  2. Rice
  3. Salt
  4. Pepper
  5. Chilli powder
  6. Cumin
  7. Mixed herbs
  8. Tomato purée
  9. Garlic
  10. Olive oil
  11. Tabasco sauce
  12. Stock cubes – vegetable, chicken and beef!
  13. Butter
  14. Lentils
  15. Teabags
  16. Coffee
  17. A tin of soup
  18. Chopped tomatoes or passatta

There you have it! Have I missed any of your essentials? Let me know below!!

A little unscheduled post…

Well as the title might suggest, I have an unplanned post for this early morning.
As I’m sure you’ve seen, I’m part of a wonderful community of girls over at Girl Power Blog where I’ve met some of the best people I’ve ever known. We’ve become so close in the last week alone that I honestly am surprised I haven’t known them longer! 
Through meeting these amazing girls, I realised just how great the blogging community can be. I mean, I knew there were some lovely people out there (1weekmary for example – hi there!) but these girls became a part of my life in a way that’s hard to explain. There’s always someone to talk to and you never feel alone because of it. They’re all so supportive and we have each other’s backs. 
We had been talking about Christmas the other night, and I had a sudden brain wave – why not have a Christmas Card swap? The idea would be to contact other people involved (as many or as few as you wanted) and to send them your address in exchange for theirs. Then you would send a Christmas card and hopefully receive some yourself!
I’ve already got quite a few people interested in taking part, so if you would like to join in, either tweet me (@kvburton657), email me (katiekinnes@msn.com) with the subject line “Christmas card swap”, or comment below and we can get in touch!!
Hopefully you’ll want to be involved!
