National Student Money Week Day 4
by Debra Smitham - Thursday, 9 February 2017, 4:17 PM

We would like to encourage students to think about their shopping habits and try swapping some branded items for value items. Marjon Shop offers many affordable alternatives to branded items as shown in the poster attached.

Most of the ingredients from the NSMW recipe cards are also available in the shop if you would like to give making them a go. Recipe cards can be picked up from Student Support, the NSMW display board in-between the Dining Hall  and MSU office or downloaded for the bottom of this webpage: 

Nearly all of the Grow Packs we put together for this week have gone - there are still a few left in the Student Support Reception area.
If you have one we would love to see your cress growing progress and also any feedback or ideas of activities or resources you would like from the Student Funding Advice team are always welcome.

Students (and staff!) may be interested in the following link to an article in IDEA Fitness Journal, that I found using Discovery, that makes suggestions for cheaper alternatives to some of the more popular 'superfoods': (click on 'PDF Full Text' at top left when you get there)


It shows you can use Library resources such as Discovery for more than just your academic work! :-)
