Do you eat out often or prefer buying your own grocery? I think this is one of my biggest problems (along with my sleeping schedule). I live off of campus and I do not have a meal plan since they are crazy expensive, so I usually buy my groceries. However, I tend to get lazy and decide against cooking, so all of the food in the fridge goes bad. I tend to eat out a lot because it's just so much easier, but also more expensive, unfortunately. The only crucial things in my fridge are: eggs, bacon, brita filter water, and occasional fruits and veggies. I'm trying to limit my eating out habit and buying more groceries so I can save money and conveniently eat at my own place. What are some essentials on a grocery list? How often do you eat out?
