So, I've been getting used to this whole thing with living on my own. Regarding food, it's not hard to find cooking ingredients that are cheap, and last a long time (and are even nutritious). Canned beans is a good example. A giant bag of rice is another. And fortunately I know how to cook.
But as happy as I am with my ability to cook stuff, and proud as I am to shirk convenience, I'm finding that having no readily edible food is wearing on me. I don't really feel like cooking a lot of stuff and cleaning a lot of pots when I'm really hungry because the only thing to eat is what I'm preparing at that moment.
So, I want stuff I can eat right away, but I want to save money. What's ready-made stuff I can buy cheap but will last me a while?
For example, I have peanut butter, and I bought bread, but it went moldy on me before I even got half-way through it. I'm going to give bread another chance, but I want other ideas. What else should I consider getting?
