30 Bananas a Day!

I'm currently my first year in college, and I want to know how I can fully make 811 work. Does anyone have a tips or tricks that may help a college student on a budget?! I would appreciate it! (:

-frozen bananas (always have frozen fruit on hand)

-sams club/costco

-shop at private grocery stores(like asian markets) and ask for discounts or deals on "overripe fruit" 

-order dates from batuista dates, thedatepeople, or 7hotdates.com



im in college too and still learning but so far this has worked for me C:

I would have frozen bananas, but I don't have a freezer, and my city doesn't have a costco or sams :/ which is why i'm finding this hard. But thank you for advising asian markets and such things like that, I never even though about that!
Are you in San Antonio?  It looks like there are 3 Sam's Clubs there....
I don't go to school in San Antonio. I have a membership to the costco in San Antonio, but i'm in a small city for school and they don't have one here :/
eat a lot of dates and bananas, and find them as cheap as possible :)  do you live in a dorm, apartment, house?  Maybe you could start a small garden for your greens/tomatoes?
I currently live in a dorm, with a roomie (: I just got my first batch or organic dates in the mail, so I'm looking forward to eating those (:
hmmm...where is your school?
It's in denton, I just looked and they have a sam's club, but I don't have a membership card there, and I doubt my parents will let me get one

I usually take dates and bananas with me :) Yesterday I asked my teacher (5 hour long class) if I could bring a kitchen knife to class to eat my oranges (to avoid spending my break time just peeling :p ) She said it's fine as long as I dont hurt anyone! lol. So I'm going to be able to eat oranges in that class for my dinner :) Or just peel them ahead of time when I find the time for that.

Maybe try to sneak in a salad at class? Sit in the back maybe? but the chewing could probably interfer with asking questions ...

Try to get in a big breakfast so you don't have to eat as much food during class breaks.

Have you checked if your cafeteria offers good fruit? fresh salads?

Do you have a Trader Joes? I get each banana there for 19 cents. That's my staple ! :)

I also have cut back on my clothe shopping spendings

Aw thanks for the help! I usually don't have to take my dinners or lunches to class, because I have all morning classes (: I just need to find a place to get cheap food, our cafeteria actually is 100% vegan, and that would be great...if I was still eating cooked vegan foods... ha but they do always have fresh salad and fruit and its super ripe, except for the bananas, so I just take some every time I go and store them in my room to ripen up (:
Also, at the right time/conversation, let people know how much fruit you eat, how much you love it etc, and who knows! Maybe they'll let you know about their fruit growing in their backyard and close to going to spoil !! They'll ask you to help out haha. Or they will let you know of a good store to get your fruit etc. My roommates buy a lot of veggies but they go to spoil, same with their bananas, so they let me eat some :)

I'm not in college but there's a few youtube videos on the subject. :)
