    If you bring food from China with you, it may be cheaper. Not much, just for a week and I think it's economic .

    Yeah, quite good idea, but maybe only something salty, otherwise all would be giving bad smell, and no roommate would stay with me, haha!

    Having done some grocery shopping in the last 4 weeks that I've lived in Finland, I'd say that seafood is more expensive than meats. In the summer time you may be able to find some fish cheaper than meat, or even go and fish your own, but in general it seems that meat is cheaper. I could be wrong however.

    I've been buying some cheap foods for myself, as I'm unemployed at the moment and I haven't registered for assistance yet. I've found cheap noodles at the store and some very tasty flavored tunas. It's cheap (about 2 euro a meal), fast (3 minutes) and it's tasty, IMO.

    I believe that if you really want to live frugally, you can do it. It just takes willpower.
    Follow your bliss!!!

    What do you mean by you haven't registered for assistance yet?

    TKK/HUT students get discount at the canteens, in 2007 if I remember correctly one lunch was something between two and three euros (but I'm not sure).

    I guess I'll find out too, maybe we meet there.
