It's already been a month since I've moved into my college house, and one of the struggles has been cooking and making all my own meals. Compared to my freshman and sophomore year where I had unlimited access to the dining hall, now I'm grocery shopping weekly and clipping coupons. Literally I feel so old getting excited over the Aldi sale flyers that come in the mail....Anyway all of these meal ideas are vegan, and although I wouldn't label myself as vegan just yet, I always love trying out new and healthy foods.
What's also exciting is that it is a collab withEllie from Peanut Butter and Ellie! We go to the same school, and were able to get dinner together - it's so awesome to meet someone through blogging #teaminternet. Ellie is vegan, and will have even more easy meal ideas from the cafeteria. She is a freshman, so you'll be getting both ideas from students who live on and off campus!
This week is officially my first full week of classes, and already I'm stressing out - but what better way to take a break from studying than to write a blog post? I've missed being able to write blog posts, but school comes first I guess...At least my first favorite of the year are my new roommates this year, and I will have a blog post on some cute DIYs we did to decorate the house! Anyway, here are the rest of my favorites that I've been loving for the start of the school year:
Here is the first part to a series on how to save money in college, something that is a struggle for so many people just like me. I'll be writing about different areas of spending - the first today being about clothes, and some little tips that I have learned along the way. Thankfully, I grew up with money saving parents, and it's definitely made me more conscious and aware of where I'm putting my money. Honestly, it's even hard for me to spend more than $20 on a top or pair of jeans, but I definitely don't sacrifice quality. I really hope something in this post helps you out even if you're not a college student!
