My College Food Shop!


Hello Lovelies,
I hope you're all well.

I have officially been back to college for a week today! Woo! I am delighted to be back. I would hate to be in Trinity waiting another week before lectures even begin. Anyways, I thought I would share my College Food Shop today. Before I headed up last Saturday, my dad and I made a journey into Aldi where I tried to buy foods in bulk. I bought about 2kgs of Pasta, 4 tins of beans, 6 tins of kidney beans etc. These are the kinds of things you want to keep as they don't have an expiry date so you can have as many as you want. Things like meat and vegetables (unless they're frozen) would have to be bought more often as they expire. Anyways, I thought I would share the products and price if I remember the prices of the food I have taken for college.
