My Typical College Grocery List 

If you don’t already know, I recently moved into an apartment for my senior year of college with three of my girl friends. Last year, I lived in a house but somehow almost never bought food. But this year I decided that I wanted to eat healthier & therefore I should go grocery shopping and eat on campus as little as possible (other than when I’m at work and get to eat for free).

I go grocery shopping about every week and a half to two weeks. This is what my typical grocery list includes…

  • 1/2 gallon of 1% Milk
  • Dozen large brown eggs
  • Morning Star Spicy Black Bean Veggie Burgers
    • there’s 8 so I don’t buy these every time
  • Container of Fresh Spinach
  • 1/2 pound of Deli Meat
    • I prefer Roast beef, but sometimes I get Turkey Breast
  • Loaf of Whole Grain Wheat Bread
  • Two bags of steam-in-bag vegetables
    • Green beans are my favorite, especially eating them with some red pepper flakes on top
  • 90-second white rice
    • This flavor has way less sodium than all the others and it’s nice to eat alone, with red pepper flakes, eating as a side, or with some veggies mixed in.
  • Two tomatoes
    • I use these in my sandwiches, I eat them with my eggs, too.
  • Guacamole
  • Apples or plums
  • Three granola bars

I still have a few things from when I moved on September 1st.

  • Almond Honey Bunches of Oats
  • Ramen Noodles
    • these are my backup food. For when I don’t feel good or I’m just too lazy to cook.
  • Peanut Butter
    • I prefer the natural crunchy peanut butter
  • Ketchup
    • I must be doing something wrong because I still haven’t opened my ketchup and I love ketchup
  • Salad Dressing

Because I don’t cook anything other than eggs I buy a lot of the same things. I think this works for me because I do work at the Dining Common on campus so I get to eat there but also I think I save money by keeping it simple. I normally only spend under $40 each time I go.
