Dinner for one

HazelM | Dec 13, 2013 10:59 AM

Does anyone find that feeding just oneself - especially if you are not much into cooking - really does not pay financially? "Heat and eat" is more expensive, I agree, but every time I try buying ingredients, sauces, spices, the trimmings to do a special dish, the leftovers end up sitting in the fridge until they have spoiled and have to be tossed. Today it was half a bottle of barbecue sauce.

Does anyone find it really pays to cook from scratch for only one person? If so, I'd surely like to hear some ideas because I have decided it does not.
