-frozen bananas (always have frozen fruit on hand)
-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 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
