**** and shower my friend

but on a more serious note, any easy meals to cook aswel?

how about food that you like !!!,,,,,,,thats what most people buy when they shop

How about just buying stuff you don't need...............

like cat litter

Buy 100 packs of Always Ultra and use them for the washing up.

Or... Baby baby food..... 10 for £6....

or..... a few items from the JML range...

You'll be up to £50 by now, easily.

Are you going home for Christmas? Don't get loads of stuff that will go off if you're not going to eat it in time.
Also, what about:
Washing powder
kitchen roll
washing up liquid

biscuits

Mayonnaise - for tuna
Jar of Pasta Bake Sauce - for tuna + pasta
Sweetcorn
Curry Paste or Powder - for Steak.Chicken and Mince + rice

Have you got use of a freezer ?

So this is the standard of thought from people in higher education these days. One big fail lol

Are you sure they'll deliver to Halls? If you're on campus they may count this is a non residential address and refuse to deliver. Where will you store it all- In your room ? Having been student ( many years ago! ) are you sure none of it will go walking from the shared kitchen!

get some new potatoes, you can just put them in a pan and serve with butter on, asda do lovely smart price pork chops, and fresh sausages for about 50p.
