While your college years are certainly the best time of your life, they can also put a damper on your wallet. Whatever role you have in college is irrelevant, because all jocks, cheerleaders, emos, and frathouse stars, all have the same expenses and struggle to pay for their groceries. Everyone needs to eat and living off of “a cup of noodle soup” can only last so long. With this list, you can whip up easy meals that will keep you full, satisfied, and not break your bank account. Here we go with some foods to buy while staying on a budget, trust us, we’ve all been there.
Peanutbutter is a staple food that everyone should have. Want some breakfast? Throw together some toast, peanut butter, and banana and there you go. You’ll have your energy flowing from the morning and your taste buds satisfied. Lunch? Go ahead and make the classic PBJ& J sandwich! Hungry for a snack? Pair some peanut butter with any fruit, rice cake, or veggies. This food should be in your check out basket.
If you don’t have time to spend hours in the kitchen cooking and preparing meals, like most college students don’t, then this is perfect for you. Ready-made salads take away the hassle of cutting and preparing veggies, while still ensuring that you’re eating healthy and filling your body with the proper nutrients. There is no regret with this item of choice!
Frozen pizzas are the best thing created and save you money that you may waste ordering from the local shop downstairs. Instead, head over to Costco and stock up on frozen pizzas to last you weeks, maybe even months. This is a great food item to have in the house, just make sure you’re sticking to the portions or you may end up with your freshman 15 even when you’re not a freshman!
