I will be moving into an apartment on campus this fall (hoping for a single) and will have to cook for myself. I grew up learning how to make things streach (Ie: boil a chicken, shred it for samwiches, soups, salads, or something else, then use the stalk for soup or freeze it) and will be able to do so this fall. I could potentially buy a chuck roast (or any other large piece of meat) and portion it out into smaller ones (cuting it up into smaller portions for stirfry or what have you).
I do know that the school provides the stadard freezer on top refrigerator.
I also have to make it gluten-free, tomato-free, greese-free, and non-spicey.
I know how to shop on sales (for example i got 16 or so boxes of rice chex on a sale a while back for 1.29 a box instead of the almost 4.00 i normally pay) and such.
I also enjoy frozen veggies (spinnage is one of my favorites). I also, however, am an apple fiend, so by stashing them in the fridge I think i can make them last a bit longer (i normally eat at least one a day). Eggs, however, I dispise with a passion (i cannot eat them as a meal, they make my stomach upset ;/, but in a dish like pancakes, I do fine).
Outside of this, I also know it is a good idea to plan ahead for the month.
