Tomorrow is going to be a very long day. You will have four classes, the first of which begins at 8 a.m. Your next class, Psychology 1010, is at 9:00. There, you will be taking a test. It will be multiple-choice on a scantron, but still, it is a test. You hate tests. They cause you anxiety and stress you out, because a grade is at stake. After your test, you will have two more classes, and then you will be done for the day. You will not really be done, of course, because after the classes comes the studying and homework. After such a hectic day, what will you do for dinner?
One easy option, of course, is to order a pizza. You have your choice of toppings, such as mushroom and onion, pepperoni, or sausage. It would be a tasty dinner, and the leftover pizza would make a good breakfast. Pizza is greasy, however. Over time, it could cause you to gain weight.
Another option is to pick up a single-serving dinner and put it in the microwave. Supermarkets have may different dinners to choose from, such as macaroni and cheese, spaghetti and meatballs, or meatloaf. While these are somewhat healthy and reasonably priced, the calories and cost would add up over time. Buying these meals every night after school would get expensive. Eventually, it would cut into a person's budget. Utility bills would come in. If there was not enough money available to pay them, some utilities might get turned off. People need water and electricity in order to live comfortably. They also want their creature comforts, such as Internet access and television service. In order to have what you need and want, save money any way that you can.
One way to save money is to fix your own food. You can bake an item, such as lasagna, eat a portion of it, and freeze the rest for later. That way, when you come home after a long day, there will be something already fixed. A dish such as lasagna can be used for several meals, which will save both money and time.
Another reason to fix your own food is so that you will know exactly what went into it. Processed food that you buy at the store has additives and preservatives in it that often are not very healthy. There is no need to add these items to food that you fix for yourself. By not adding them, you are eating healthier and quite possibly extending your life.
Consider fixing your own food, rather than buying the ready-made food from the store. It takes just a little bit of time and preparation. By fixing your own food, you will save money and feel better. Do you love convenience? How much more convenient can you get than having something that is already made and only needs to be warmed up?
