Nightlife and eating out is where you will spend more money. I advise you to eat at home, cook you food. Restaurants don't seem that good. Pizzas and Kebabs have good price and you can get nice quality. Summary: If you want very nice/gourmet food do it yourself. If you want to eat out, I think Pizza and Kebab house are what is worth. Nevertheless, at lunch its quite cheap to eat out at most places/restaurants, there is lunch menus everywhere. That is worth once in a while. Lunch at Chalmers can also be a cheap an nice experience, try the vegetarian buffet at the canteen.

I think that the living costs both in Italy and Sweden are pretty similar on average..Sweden is convenient for cheaper housing and communication services (utilities) but Italy is cheaper in travelling (hotels, transportation)..therefore on average, I spent the same amount of money in Sweden as I would have done in Italy.

IA good surprise was the housing and food were cheaper or as costly as in Italy as in Italy..The expenses were all reasonablefor an italian purchasing power...Very difficult to identify cost saving tips since prices in Sweden are all quite standard and vary little from an alternative to another.

I didn't experienced any financial surprise for which I am still awaiting. I found out some cost-saving tips myself like purchasing second-hand goods, purchasing foods from the countryside markets and quitting smoking
