Notes on Bachelor Living and Living Solo by Renzie Baluyut.
One of the most pressing concerns when you’ve started living on your own is resolving the issue of food. Your best option would be to cook your own food, as much as you possibly can, though you can just as easily just go out for dinner, or call in some home delivery.
But in most days, cooking your own food will definitely be the way to go. Cooking is still your best option to make the most out of your food allowance, and it allows you to build up some mad cooking skills. With that comes the initiative of slowly building up your kitchen to the point of self-sufficiency: you can eventually make some nourishing and fulfilling meals and treats right in the comfort of your own home.
Getting there, however might take some time for the start-up bachelor. So here’s a guide for those of you living solo to help you prioritize which kitchen implements to get as you build up your own kitchen.
The “Spartan Special” Scenario:
This scenario assumes that you don’t have an actual kitchen set-up. It could mean you’ve just moved in to a new place, or that your current income level can’t allow you the luxury of having your own kitchen just yet, or maybe you’re in-between homes, or perhaps even staying in a dormitory for college.
This scenario entails virtually no kitchen to speak of. No counters, no food preparation areas, and no heavy-duty kitchen appliances. Just a few free spaces where you can put the most basic, but still very important, implements for putting food on your table.
Still, these are the basics for anyone living solo. Simply put, if all your best kitchen equipment break down, at least you got these babies around to come through for you.
