    Such a great video! Really helpful xx

  2. Andrew Costello January 13, 2018 at 9:02 am

    Great video. Great advice. I can remember as a kid when everyone used to have sense – instead of frittering money away like suckers. I hope more people learn to live within their means.

    How do act white I think when you act white you get a job and money! I find it hard to act white!

    The best money saving tip is making your own tea or drink at home. It saves money a lot.

  5. Lewis Dunn January 13, 2018 at 9:02 am

    You speak really well!

  6. MariaSirius January 13, 2018 at 9:02 am

    Thank you. This is excellent advice. I like the idea of checking the video classes of gyms. It's tough to live on a weak budget especially when we are used to heaving a quality life. Anyways… Thanks.

    Sick and tired of New York, I would love to immigrate to London.

  8. J L January 13, 2018 at 9:02 am

    Just stumbled on your channel. Such priceless advice ! Thanks for that ! 🙂

  9. Miguel Lopez January 13, 2018 at 9:02 am

    Thanks Kristabel! I thought: is enough if I earn £2000 per month?

  10. LJae Zw January 13, 2018 at 9:02 am

    These are really useful tips for sm1 like me moving to london in a few months tym . the beauty lies in the fact that u can use them anyway and surely they will work

  11. Soph January 13, 2018 at 9:02 am

    my boyfriend always checks Groupon and Wowcher for deals for restaurants so when we want to go out we try to find something with voucher. Also you can sign for a Tastecard for first month free which gives great deals on restaurants.

  12. Antwan Fenton January 13, 2018 at 9:02 am

    just moved back to the UK here 9months now left as an infant back now as a grown man

  13. Rianna Extras January 13, 2018 at 9:02 am

    Where would be the best place to work as a uni student (I need help)

  14. DesignerEsra January 13, 2018 at 9:02 am

    Great tips! Thank you for sharing! I am trying to save up this year and cooking at home has been really good plus hardly any fashion shopping lol

  15. glamourouscomaxx January 13, 2018 at 9:02 am

    Loved this video Kristabel – this was really helpful! I do the same with Hello Fresh, I think for a single person it's way too expensive unless you spend an insane amount of money on food. So I always get the half half price offers. Money Saving Expert is great. Love the tip about soft launches – definitely going to get in on that!

  16. Emma FitFoodEmma January 13, 2018 at 9:02 am

    Yes Kristabel! Honestly the best video I've watched this year – I was literally nodding along through each point 🙂

  17. Hyacinth Henry January 13, 2018 at 9:02 am

    You are sooooooooo Pretty! I did the same thing ! lol

  18. liseg89 January 13, 2018 at 9:02 am

    London overwhelms me in ways I absolutely can't describe! So I stay in Bristol as much as possible, unless I go into London with someone who is more used to it than I am. I've even been iffy about job positions I've been offered there because it's just so overwhelming! This video is a great start.
    So glad to see you on YT more ^_^

  19. Natasha Mcpherson January 13, 2018 at 9:02 am

    Thanks Kristabell! I will definitely have a look out for more restaurant discounts. Very insightful vlog thanks 🙂

    i LOVE meat Liquor only been once but been away from london for a few years

  21. Yvonne Dzifa January 13, 2018 at 9:02 am

    Liked before I watched😊

  22. Nyika Dzino January 13, 2018 at 9:02 am

    great video Kristabel! i don't batch cook my dinners but i do batch cook my work day lunches and it's saved me so much money.

  23. xxxlorrettaxxx January 13, 2018 at 9:02 am

    great video (as per usual)! I would add split ticketing on train tickets when travelling, I got that tip from Martin Lewis 😊. I swear by vouchercode app too for discounts. Another one, which is a little naughty, is to add things to my shopping basket but don't buy them straight away. a few days later, usually the company email you a voucher to try and tempt you to complete your purchase!!

  24. Rukaya Cesar January 13, 2018 at 9:02 am

    Found your video on LSY Fb page, great stuff! Always helpful to know more tips from fellow Londoners 🙂

  25. Love Layefa January 13, 2018 at 9:02 am

    I live in London and these are such good tips.

  26. I Am NRC January 13, 2018 at 9:02 am

    lol about burpees

  27. Chicneccu Forde January 13, 2018 at 9:02 am

    Would it help if you move outward from London? But I understand if most your work is station within London.

  28. Charlotte Rollin January 13, 2018 at 9:02 am

    this was really helpful for someone who will (hopefully) be interning in london from june onwards! fab video as usual! <3

  29. Paloma Cárdenas January 13, 2018 at 9:02 am

    I really enjoyed the video! Although I don't live in London I found it very useful. I'm starting as a freelance this year too 🙂

  30. sarahjsandiford January 13, 2018 at 9:02 am

  31. oyato11 January 13, 2018 at 9:02 am

    Great tips. Defiantly going to check out some of your suggestions and your right understanding how an Oyster card works sometimes can be confusing lol
