If you’ve gone to the grocery store recently, you’ve probably noticed inflation hard at work. Grocery prices across the country have risen around 6% since 2020. As college students, buying groceries while trying to stick to a budget can be difficult, especially while trying to eat healthy and sustainably.
Imagine this: There is a global pandemic. You are doing your best to isolate and eliminate contact with as many people as possible. If you have to be around others, you make sure to wear a mask and social distance. But here’s the catch, you live with housemates — some of whom want to see their friends, significant others, go to parties and bars, etc. Some of you imagined, others live that scenario every day.
It’s that time of year. The sun sets earlier, the weather is colder and students are overcome with stress about wrapping up the semester. Finals are quickly approaching and students are finding themselves at a loss for both sleep and sanity.
