Basically just look out for deals - if you shop for fruit and veg in a market and get the rest of your food on deals (or sainsbury's basics or whatever) then you can do a load of shopping really cheaply and you'll have more than enough food. I'm a veggie so I guess it's even cheaper for me. There are of course a few things I make sure I always have:

Pasta
Rice
Fresh Tomatoes
Tinned Tomatoes
Beans (like kidney beans or haricot beans)
A loaf of bread
Uber-Strong Cheddar
Goats Cheese
Peanut Butter
A Sainsbury's Basics Pizza (a bit minging but good and cheap)
crackers
2 bottles of wine
olive oil
balsamic vinegar.
loads of herbs and spices

Once you have all that stuff you can cook so much with just one or two extra ingredients.

I am actually a decent cook but as someone else said I find it really really boring to cook only for one person. So I wouldn't mind if someone did the food shopping and i cooked something nice [on the weekends]. right now, am living on my own and i usually cook for myself. My diet at Uni will be something like this.

Rice with vegetables + salad
Pasta with tomato sauce + salad
Tuna+corn+salad plus bread
Fish + salad + bread x 2
Black eyed peas [am serious] with spinach leaves
vegetarian pizza

Dinners: bread and cheese and salad, vegetarian pizza, a little pasta salad..

[this is what i eat now, anyway]

of course it all depends on time. if i have more time [and money] i ll cook much better things.

You really ought to avoid microwave meals, ready made stuff etc --> yuck

(Original post by fairycakes)
hey, no1s mentioned the sizzle and stir things or the sauces where u just buy the meat, cook and add the sauce, u can get curries, sweet and sour etc etc
(sorry if any1 has mentioned it...i scan read the thread)
xx
They can get expensive though, if you're using a jar/packet for each meal. In the long run it's cheaper to learn how to make sauces in bulk...
