Do you have any general money-saving tips for future study abroad participants?
Spend less out and about, spend more on meaningful experiences like going to see a play or taking a weekend trip. If you have flatmates that are willing, try and make your meals together. Even one shared meal a day can cut your expenses down and try and buy communal things like bread and eggs that you might use frequently. Also, I limited myself by withdrawing money and not using my card. This not only helped me track my spending in a much more tangible way, but it also helped me avoid foreign fees that I would incur every time I used my credit card.
