A College Student’s Guide to Grocery Shopping:

Suddenly living on your own can be daunting, especially if you’ve never cooked and don’t know where to start. Going to the store, buying only hot pockets and ramen and using the rest of your money for fast food might be tempting but when I was younger I did this and I felt like absolute crap within a week. I’m going to be very blunt with you: You’re not going to feel good eating fast food all the time and pounding junk food everyday. Even on a tight budget, what I’m about to tell you will be extremely affordable and easy to do. Yes, there will be days when fast food and junk food are comforting and more easily available, especially when you’re exhausted, but please all the other times, try to be healthy and follow this advice. Even if you live in the dorms and have a food plan you might have to get some essentials to keep in your room on some shelves and in your tiny fridge when the cafeteria isn’t open. Take some of my advice if it applies to you. Most of this advice might be more suited to those living in situations without food plans but pay attention bc you never know. 

Here’s a good shopping list for your first trip to the grocery store (if your dorm has a kitchen, a tiny fridge, or even allows a hot plate, try to use this list too, but don’t buy too much because dorms are small and you might have a food plan): 

  • A bag of potatoes
  • Rice
  • Dried Lentils (if you soak them, boil them in broth, add onions, peppers and some spices, it makes a good soup you can also dip bread into) 
  • Pasta
  • Canned or dried beans (black beans, kidney beans, and chick peas are really good to have on hand. You soak them overnight and can make soups and stuff with them)
  • Peanut Butter
  • Garlic. Fresh garlic bulbs are cheap and you can crush them and throw them in your ramen. 
  • Ramen is always good to have on hand too. Just don’t use the flavor packets if you can help it. Put some soy sauce and garlic and green onions in your ramen, see how that works. It’s pretty good) 
  • Canned tuna or other canned fish (your choice)
  • A loaf of bread or if you can’t eat bread bc of allergies or diet restrictions think outside the box and try to find something you can easily eat with tuna, cheese, peanut butter, or fruit (I just learned that those rice cakes quaker oats sells are gluten free and are amazing topped with things for breakfast and snacks)
  • Bags of mixed greens and spinach
  • yogurt
  • Broth concentrate (if you can find it, it’s pretty cool. It’s a concentrated liquid you pour into water and it makes broth. It goes a very long way but if you can’t find it, bouillon cubes are cheaper than broth (bc is it just me or did the price of broth go waaaay up?)) 
  • Onions
  • A bag of apples, oranges, or some kind of easily munched on fruit. If you can put one piece of fruit into yourself everyday, you’ll be good. Maybe even buy one different kind of fruit for each day of the week to mix it up. Make it fun. Just eat your fruit. 
  • Zucchini or some kind of soft squash
  • Baby carrots
  • Crackers
  • Get some spices and cooking sauces: Most importantly get salt, pepper, cumin, curry powder, paprika, cinnamon, sugar, Sriracha, soy sauce
  • lemons
  • Canned milk (not condensed milk. Just plain canned milk. Condensed milk is super sugary… I mean it does go good in coffee though, so try it too)
  • Coffee or tea
  • Buy yourself one junk food thing. Like a box of oatmeal cream pies or twinkies. It might help you when you’re stressed to be able to have one of those once in awhile. Believe me, you can’t restrict yourself too much and when you’re on a budget, it helps to have a little comfort. 
  • WATER 
  • Oatmeal. This will be a life saver. 
  • oil for cooking. Never olive oil for cooking. it has a low smoke point. You want canola, vegetable, or sunflower oil. 

Add whatever else you think you’ll need to this list, it’s up to you. These things are essentials. You can do a lot with them. If you need to know what you can do with these things, I’ll be making another post about recipes and cooking hacks soon. 

This list can also work if you’re not a college student and just live on your own. 

Hello hello hello! With the APUSH exam approaching in a little more than a month, I’ve begun my revising and material review of all the stuff I learned at the beginning of the year, and after some successful quizzes and tests with the mind palace, I think a lot of people who don’t already use it could benefit! I’ve been applying it to my finals/AP revisions, in which I make notes in bullet points and then remember those notes. This is a sort of long post, so you can read the actual information under the cut.

The mind palace (also known as the memory palace) is pretty simple. It’s based off how we tend to remember locations much better than straight facts (so if you’re a visual, audio, or kinesthetic learner, this will really work well). I use it for pretty much anything, but it works especially well for memorizing formulas/equations, rules, vocabulary, grammar rules, conjugation/tenses, and notes in general (so like I said, pretty much anything).

anonymous asked:

do grocery stores take checks? like i literally have no ID or debit cards right now after they were misplaced by the hospital and need to buy stuff from the store. would a grocery store take a check?

Yes, grocery stores take checks! If you can, write out as much of it as you can before you get to the register, and then just write in the total and sign it. This way you’ll save time and won’t annoy anyone waiting behind you. You should check with the store ahead to see if they accept checks without ID. Some places do, some don’t.

Hey I was reading through the grocery shopping guide (thanks btw!) and I couldn't find the answer to a question of mine: How do you know what good prices are? Or bad prices? What are the average prices for things? Thanks for all you guys do.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics has this for common foods, based on region (link).

Once you start shopping more often, you’ll get to know what’s a good price and what isn’t. If you look through the advertisements that come in the mail, you can also determine the best place to buy something.

VIXX Reaction to You Being Blind but He Thought You Were Just Being Bratty.

For: Anon <3


You two were working on a show together as MCs. You usually asked your assistant to read you your script so that you could memorize them, but he had fallen ill recently. For the past few days, you had been asking N to read it to you. 

“Yah, read it yourself.”

“I would if I could.”

“And why can’t you?”

“Because I’m blind.” He instantly felt bad for getting angry with you and apologized almost one hundred times. You insisted that it was alright, since you never told him and you commonly covered your eyes with glasses.

You were in the grocery store and your guide for the day AKA your cousin kept leaving you, causing you to bump into everything in your way. There was a man in the same aisle as you and you walked through with your cart in hand. You hit him with it a few times and he had obviously been irritated. He had a small voice but you knew that with the way that he was speaking, he was almost shouting.

“I’m sorry, I can’t see.” He sighed before examining you and he got so embarrassed that he offered to help you around the store.

You had your waitress job for three years without any problems or complaints, as you weren’t totally blind. You knew the restaurant just as well as you knew your home. But one day there was a man who stood abrupt for you to react properly, causing you to spill food and drinks all over the place.

“What’s wrong with you? Are you blind?”

“Yes, I am,” you respond as you try to clean up the mess.

“Oh, uh, I’m sorry,” he replied as he stooped down to the ground to help you.

You stood at the traffic light, waiting a few seconds for the pedestrian call button to work. You didn’t hear any cars coming in either direction, so you assumed that it had worked. But once you reached the middle of the street, a car coming from your right made a hard stop.

“What’s the matter with you!”

“Sorry” you shouted, your arms out stretched, trying to quickly find your way to the other side of the street. He saw your gestures and finally realized the situation. He quickly ran from the car and helped you find your way to the pavement.

You were on a crowded subway and you couldn’t find a seat. You didn’t mean to but you kept stepping on some man’s feet. Even though you apologized a bunch, he still got angry.

“Can you watch yourself?”

“I’m sorry. I can’t really see too well.” He looked up to you and when he saw your eyes, he immediately stood to his feet and gave you his seat.

You were standing at the bus stop in which multiple buses would be making drop offs. The first few times, the kind stranger was willing to help you, but the more you asked, the more annoyed his voice had gotten. 

“I’m sorry to keep asking, but what bus is this?”

“If you’re sorry, then stop asking.”

“But I can’t see it and you are the only other person here.” He was going to give a smart comeback, but when he noticed your walking cane for the first time, he swiftly apologized and agreed to keep helping you.

I am 29. I have a BS degree and I am married. My husband and I eat separately (different schedules) and we both end up making convenience food. I'm only responsible for feeding myself and I do have some cooking skill, but the truth is that I have no idea how to shop for groceries. I have two $50 grocery gift certificates in my hand and I don't know how to make the best of them. The internet shows me "grocery lists" and "meal plans" don't seem realistic. How do real people shop?

Try our Grocery Buying Guide (link).

If I may, I’d also like to recommend that instead of you two making your own individual meals, that maybe you trade-off who cooks and then the other can simply warm it up? Or make your meals ahead. Crockpots are going to be your best friend in your situation.
