Personal spending habits
I spent more for nightlive because it was more expensive, more for the telephone because I called people at home (which makes it more expensive, even if it is cheaper here than in Germany) and more on travel as I traveled more here in Sweden than I usually do.

To get an "normal" account you need a personnumer (id number) which you can get if/when you fill out your application for residency or you go to the bank at the market place and get an account with a personnumer which is reserved for companies. I didn't do it just withdrawed big amounts from the atms

Because Linköping is so well located that you cannot resist to travel through all scandinavia! Even if student fares make it cheap, I have never so much travel, that is why travelling evry week-ends will increase your expenses. Nightlife is really expensive, but as you never avoid going to parties, as a matter of fact it won't be good time for your wallet, but you will enjoy it!

Offcourse you always spend more whilst away from home! However I guess Sweden is a little more expensive than most countries but its all part of living the student life in Sweden! Alcohol is the hard one, costing quite a bit more.

Brew your own beer and only drink spirits on special occasions! Also, make sure to try Swedish punch (spirit like).

The food is more expensive and I called guite often home to Finland which increased my phone bills. Accomodation was just a little bit more expensive what it was for me in Finland.

Don't buy books - try to borrow from library or copy them. Copying is not 'legal' but anyway everybody do like that.
