I have some exciting news. Girl Ninja and I are going back to college. Well actually, we never left ;). No, I’m not talking about literal college, but college habits. You know, the days of Top Ramen, Hot Pockets, and smelling your clothes to see if they are clean enough to wear? Here are a few of the habits old habits Girl Ninja and I are reppin’…
Plastic Storage Bins:
Once we own a home, we will invest in some nice closet organization systems, but until that day comes we are rocking some plastic storage bins. We got ’em underneath the bed, in the closet, and near my desk. Are they tacky? Probably, but they do the job and save us a couple bucks. Who didn’t use plastic bins in college? You know you did!
Open our fridge any given day and you know what you are gonna see? A big ol Brita filter. I am way too cheap to pay for virtually all beverages (except the occasional white wine that keeps Girl Ninja calm and relaxed). We NEVER buy soda, orange juice, beer, etc. We do buy milk, but only because we put it in our cereal. Don’t know if I’ll ever be able to kick the “water only” diet. It’s good for my body, and great for my budget!
Cereal = Amazing:
How many of you substitute the occasional lunch or dinner meal with a bowl of cereal? This happens for Girl Ninja and I at least once a week, a) because we are super busy b) sometimes we’re lazy and c) let’s just be honest cereal is incredibly delicious and cheap. No better meal substitute than a big bowl of Honey Bunches of Oats.
Now it’s your turn to take a walk down memory lane, and share some of the habits you never let go of after you received your diploma. At what point should we give up the ramen noodles and plastic storage bins?
