I used to spend around 50-60 dollars a week (including a six pack) when I lived alone (I live with family right now, long story) and I have to say, sunday night through friday lunch I ate only food I cooked myself and it's not that hard. people ask me if i can cook anything and i say not really, but it is so not hard to feed yourself good food with no skill. I would make double size salads (dinner and lunch) with a little (organic) turkey. The same veggies could go in omelettes or with pasta for quick dinners. Keep a few frozen sausages in the fridge for when you need meat (protein!) or beans to add to a veggie stir fry with quinoa or rice. my most ambitious was soup, but not often because nothing makes me go buy prepared food faster than the depressing thought of defrosting a tupperware of homemade soup that i probably messed up on. edit to add: bread in the freezer, peanut butter, apples= breakfast. i made separate beer runs occasionally, and lived on egg and cheese bagel all weekend visiting friends who lived two hours away.
Sounds great except I would use a handful of chopped parsley, 3-5 cloves of garlic, and as much feta as you can stand. i'm nothing if not excessive with my use of toppings/flavors. I might have a problem.
@The Dauphine I ONLY cut my hair when I'm in a bad mood. It's very therapeutic. It makes me feel in control of something. But I've definitely ended up with lawn mower bangs doing it.
This is crazy! I've been cutting my own hair for about 7 years. I've had short hair, long hair, dreads (college, not a sign of bad hair taste is swear) I cut my own bangs either side swept or straight across. I trust no one but me with my hair and had never had a haircut I liked before this. And the products they tell you you need are crazy. When I cut my hair I use big kitchen scissors or a disposable razor. I have long shaggy layers and man, that disposable razor can take out a lot of hair weight without changing the length. And the cool thing is, if I do something wrong, I don't have to pay myself to fix it. If I notice I missed a section or messed up my part or something, I fix it the next day. Each cut usually takes like three days to finish actually.
