Right?? I have to keep some of my dry goods in my bookshelf because my studio kitchen is so tiny.

like

Pre: Basically not even a meals worth
Now: 2-3 weeks including nonperishables

Exactly what I was coming to write. I used to keep only a few meals worth of nonperishables bc of travel.

1. A weeks worth
2. A weeks worth

like

1. 0 days
2. Maybe 5 days?

like

1. 0 days - a couple frozen dinners to tide me over when I didn’t go out on the weekend
2. Roughly a week

like

Not much before, maybe a weekend. Now about a week. I’m not going to be the person that stockpiles food when there’s no reason to.

like

Probably at least a couple months if we’re talking sustenance (rice / pasta etc). Probably had about a month before Covid and maybe 3 months after

like

1. 3 days max
2. 1 week of stuff I want to eat (I.e. lots of fresh food, 2-3 weeks of stuff I don’t mind eating (frozen and/or non perishable)

like

A week, 2 months +

like

7 days ... 9 days

like

Couple weeks before and after. Because I’m not a savage.

like

1. 3-4 weeks

2. 7-8 weeks

1. 2 to 3 meals tops
2. Probably 3 to 4 weeks. Unintentionally overbought last Monday 🤷🏼‍♂️ only me to feed in the apartment so it really isn’t all that much extra

<week
3-4 weeks?

1. 1 day
2. 1.5 days

Pre: 3 weeks of food
Now: 3 weeks of food declining to two

Family of 4:

Pre: 4-5 days of fresh, another 1-2 weeks of frozen / dry goods if we had to

Now: solid 7 days fresh, maybe 2-3 weeks of frozen / dry goods

Biggest difference is careful planning & inventory so we waste nothing. Plus there’s no feeling lazy and going out to eat, so what you buy is all you got.

Traveling to a very cool tropical country for a client but there are covid vaxx requirements and I'm not vaxxed.

Conflicted about either not going (though I'm required to attend), getting vaxxed though I think it's stupid for me, or lying about the record. P.S. I got covid once a couple months ago and it was pretty mild so I don't see a valid health reason for me.
