Personal spending habits
I spent more on travel because I travelled throughout Europe during the year and I usually don't travel when in California. I had more phone bills because I would have to call long distance in order to speak to my friends and family. I spent more on Nightlife because I generally went out more in the Netherlands than I do in California.

One doesn't spend that much in text books because the professor just assigns readings that needs to be photocopied for class.

Rent is expensive, so are the trains and other transportation. Saving tip: Shop at Digros and ride your bike everywhere.

Part time jobs are a good idea - also helpful when learning the language. Sort out your housing independent of the University if you can.

Because euro is much more expensive than RMB... And the study is so busy, I don't really have much time for Nightlife or Travel. As for the Telephone, I use MSN instead to save money. :)

Netherlands is thrice the time costly to India. So, I had to have lot of surprises in buying my basic food even. Milk and butter are ok. Others are very costly. So, no savings, only trying to avoid extra expenses
