Making your own meals at college can be challenging. Most likely you will have a mini fridge that that stores less than you are accustomed to. You might also share this fridge with your college roommate, leaving you with even less space. This, along with your peers and time constraints, may influence you to just grab something quick at a fast food restaurant or your campus cafeteria. The truth is, this is not a healthy diet and can be much more expensive than preparing your own food. Here are some simple recipes that are healthier for you than your local fast food chain.

A mini fridge is a necessity for students going away to school. They’re a convenient way to store snacks and drinks while saving on trips to the grocery store… but do you know how to take care of one? Sure, a mini fridge might cost less than the textbooks you need for a semester, but you need to protect your investment. Here are some tips to make sure you get the most out of your fridge so you have it for your entire school career and beyond.
How To Pack & Move Your Mini Fridge: Keep It Upright!
Step one is getting your fridge into your dorm, right? The most important thing to keep in mind is to keep the fridge upright at all times. Laying your mini fridge horizontally could cause problems with the mechanics that keep your fridge cold when you plug it in. Should you really need to lay it down any other way, try to lay it flat on its back or tilted for as short a time as possible. When you are able to stand it upright, wait 24 hours before plugging it in to allow the system to re-correct itself should anything have shifted during transport.
