Read on and leave your tips in the comments please!

There are some things that you DO think about when you get your first place on your own...and one of those are food! Seriously, who doesn't think about food? Especially when you move out and realize it's a lot more expensive than you ever realized! I'm just going to share with you a list of basic foods which give you a lot of different meal options. Of course you know what foods you like and dislike so edit the list as needed for your own personal tastes!

  2. Heh, what fun post :-) Let's see, what do I ALWAYS have in the house?

    - milk
    - cereal
    - bread
    - yoghurt
    - fruit
    - nuts and dried fruit mix
    - tomatoes, courgettes, mushrooms
    - lettuce, carrots, peppers
    - canned beans, peas and artichokes (sp?)
    - coke

    Those are pretty much my essentials, I think. But I have a whole lot more in the house than that of course.
