I only recently learned to cook. For the most part, I either ate a bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich from the bodega around the corner for breakfast, some takeout for lunch, and mom and dad’s cooking for dinner. Then I moved into my own place and I learned the hard way that you can’t do takeout and frozen TV dinners for every meal and still afford to pay rent without tightening your belt or getting roommates. Seeing as my apartment is tiny and still cost an arm and a leg in rent, I had to learn how to cook.
Full disclosure here, everyone I know can cook and can cook well, whereas I had to ask Siri how to fry an egg. I learned how to cook breakfast from a friend; lunch and dinner still escape me, but breakfast is supposed to be the most important meal of the day, so I’ll be fine for now.
So I started cooking little by little. One of the problems I had, other than dealing with a newfound understanding of how shark kitchen blades really are, and how hot a frying pan filled with bacon grease can get, is how quickly food goes bad. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to throw out entire loaves of bread or blocks of cheese, and that’s expensive!
I’m glad I’m using freshlocker. These vacuum sealers don’t cost too much, so even though sometimes I’m a little apprehensive about spending money on new things, it pays for itself because I keep food from spoiling, and I end up saving in the long run. It’s easy to use and it’s tiny, so it fits in my kitchen, so I’ll probably end up learning how to cook lunch and dinner as well.
