  2. I used to get by with one sleeve of crackers from a box of Premium Plus. And then I realized I could save even more by getting the no-name brand.

    And don't forget, breakfast should be instant oatmeal only: Get the regular kind, they have 12 bags per box whereas the flavoured kind only has 10 for the same price.

  3. Crock pots are great. Make a big thing of soup, chilli etc.. then you will have plenty for a couple days. I often do a variety of things like granola bars, apples, nuts, figs etc... which are all easy to portion and pack the night before.

  4. I make a lot of pasta during school and pack it in tubblewear along with tons of snacks (I basically live on campus). Apples, granola bars, grapes, bananas, crackers & hummus, carrots and chocolate chips are my favourite snacks.

    Other things I make for lunch include rice with chicken/pork, salami sandwiches, stir fry and sometimes microwavables during exams.

  5. When I was on coop I did sandwiches for a while but got sick of them, so I started making like triple the amount of dinner I needed every night so I could have lunches for a few days after.

    make this sunday for dinner, it will make several meals, and is filling.

    Add about half the oil it calls for, even half is almost too much.
