Cooking good food just got cheaper!...

11.04.2009One of the biggest advantages in living off campus is that I get to cook my own meals. College food is alright the first year but by the end of my sophomore year I was longing for the taste of home cooked meals. I got tired of all the hamburgers, fries, and pizza that dominated my diet. Now that I live off campus my roommate and I get to bring variety into our diets. Just recently we made pasta with vodka sauce and chicken and before that we ate barbeque chicken macaroni and cheese, green beans, and salad. The biggest issue I thought, would be getting the food. But luckily my cousin, who happens to be a psychology student here at UD, has a membership at Sam's Club. This place is a college student's heaven. What other place could I get 3lbs of Cheezits and 60 Eggo waffles!? Not to mention the dinner meals and huge things of juice and cereal I bought. This place made shopping less about what was in my wallet and more about how much room I had in my car and refrigerator. I spent about half as much as I would at Wal-Mart and got double the food. Our refrigerator is packed and the freezer barley shuts! If you plan on living off campus or in housing where you'll have to cook, I'd recommend buying your food in bulk at good-ol' Sam's.
