Lunch at the cantina (mensa) and dinner at home with itms bought on the supermarket. There are three supermaket chains clearly directed to different social economic customers. I recommend the Heida (do not recall very well if it is exactly this name) chain. If you want to travel in the netehrlands the railways are just amazing. They have special tickets that allow you to save a lot of money.

Personal spending habits
First of all, I spent more money in phone calls because I used to call my family that was abroad in Spain. Secondly, I also spent more money travelling because I was in a foreign country and I used to travel around during the weekend to visit the different cities in The Netherlands, and I also travelled to other countries on holidays.

the accomodation was more expensive because back home I was used to live with my family so it has been an expense more. the nightlife was cheaper especially because you don't have to pay to get into the bars and you only pay what you drink, while in italy you usually pay the entry and you get one drink.

It was relatively the same- however travel was great- very cheap to travel across countries by rail or especially air.

Travel by air I was surpirsed about. Aside from that Europe is going to be more expensive that Australia for certain things- you have to budget for that.

Gas is expensive, public transportation is very expensive unless you are a dutch student, and banking is only free for dutch students as well. Dont go to post bank it is a joke and takes forever to post deposits or make payents. Whatever you are told be prepared for additional charges that are "normal"

going to movies is expensive, so if you want to travel, try to spend less in nightlife. You can always find cheap food or you can eat at the mensa! it always saves some money.
