Money Diary: A Criminology Student & Part-Time Carer In Leicester

Welcome to Money Diaries, where we’re tackling what might be the last taboo facing modern working women: money. We’re asking a cross-section of women how they spend their hard-earned money during a seven-day period – and we’re tracking every last penny.This week: “I am a 21-year-old full-time final-year criminology with psychology student and a part-time carer. I work full-time over the summer and then part-time during term. I currently live at my boyfriend’s parents’ house so that we are able to start saving for our own house once I have finished uni. Before COVID, we split our time between my parents’ and N’s parents’ but had to choose one to stay with once the first lockdown began. It isn’t ideal and I miss my family but I’m grateful that they allow me to stay.”Industry: Healthcare/StudentAge: 21Location: Leicester
