I finally managed to get my shit together last night and complete most of the tasks on my to-do list. The most important was making a menu of meals for the week and subsequent grocery list.
I cleaned out the fridge and started to feel bad. I was throwing away so much unused food, even from my farm, which just crushes me. Every time I throw something away, I just see money going into the garbage. I just imagine literally taking dollar bills, fives, and tossing them away. Due to this, I attempted to make my food list based on what I have in my cupboards and fridge already.

Days in red indicate I am working. Obviously, this isn't all I am eating, just my main meals. I don't include snacks or foods I may be eating on the side of the meals, like vegetables or fruits. Also, I don't normally schedule my lunch on days off because I just wing it. Work, however, is another story since I work nights. If I don't plan, then I am forced to eat at the cafeteria. That isn't necessarily a bad thing because the cafe has a lot of healthy options, but I'd rather not spend the extra money.
