If You are skint You can go and eat at chippy but it will be more expensive in the end of the day.
I used spend only £40 per week for myself for like 2 months because I saved money to rent bigger house. And I'm not small guy either.
4 pack of beans can be found for £1.
Chicken Kiev 500 grams - 1 pound.
6 tomatoes for £1 too.
John West canned salmon 300 g - £1.
Uncle Benz Rice pouches 2 for £2.
Not the healthiest food but not as poisonous than horse burgers from Tesco.
1 Turkish kebab will cost me more than 6 quid. It takes two of them to feed me for at least 6 hours.
Making food is always cheaper than buying fast food
Haha, brings me back
I used to raid the Tesco, etc... clearance section whenever I could; you can usually find some cheap packaged meals there.
Favorite staple was spaghetti & pesto sauce (sometimes with some chicken breast too), as well as tuna rice (with mayo and pepper).
When I was truly skint I could buy a whole bag of frozen chicken legs; boil them, roast them... they would last for quite a while. And rice, spaghetti is dirt cheap so those were always the staples of my student diet.
One of my housemates worked in a Thai restaurant; every day he would bring back chicken & rice (while I supplied the tobacco); it was spicy as fuck but I just had to endure it.
Another few friends worked at fish & chips stands/shops; so I usually well supplied when out & about too.
