7. Stop streaming movies in bed all day.

9. Clean the house more often.

You kinda need that mullah for the rest of the term. Learn from your past mistakes – you can do it.

One resolution you definitely should be making this year is taking better care of your bits and bobs. Find out more at Barclays Student Contents Insurance. Make sure you know what's covered and what isn't.
