How to make a few vouchers go a long way
Students in catering residences are well acquainted with meal voucher season. Everybody loves ballin’ on them vouchers, and although it feels like free money, dear students, it’s really not. Remember, this is the substitute for a meal that your parents have paid for.
Firstly, it is important to stay healthy. So, do make sure you get the fruits and veg you need before splurging on take out. If you and the mates crave a big feast, go out together and split the bill.
We all know the student struggle, but if you’re super cheap, meal vouchers could allow you to take bae out. Cocoa Wah Wah is quite romantic and since it accepts vouchers, it makes it even better. You and bae could be sippin’ on some cocktails.
If you’re one of the lucky few to have access to a fridge, now is an excellent time to make use of it and stock up on some items. Pick ‘n Pay allows you to buy any food related items (alcohol excluded), think about getting some cereal and milk, or even buy bacon and eggs, you’d be surprised at the hidden qualities of a microwave.
This time of year usually ensures that every fast food place on Main has a massive queue and it could take more than an hour before you get to the till. So if you absolutely hate waiting in a queue for days, then the trick is all about timing. Never go shopping from 5 pm onwards, because by then you’d surely get stuck in a queue. It’s best to go in the morning, special window from 10am to about 4pm.
So get some more bang for your buck this voucher season.
