Perhaps you've experienced checking the balance of your bank account thinking you had close to $200 left, only to be greeted by a slap in the face when you realize you in fact have $3.27 in your account and still have to go grocery shopping for the week.

Maybe you get lucky and your parents give you a little bit of money to go grocery shopping and you start making a list and instantly become annoyed when you have no choice but to put these items on the list:

1. Shampoo and conditioner

Might as well take out a loan to make this investment

2. Toothpaste/deodorant

Okay definitely an essential but $5, is that really necessary?

3. Feminine products

It's almost as though they are punishing for the fact that we are girls.

4. Face wash/makeup remover wipes

Makeup remover wipes are a college girls best friend, until you have to buy a new pack.

5. Razors

These can be as much as $25!!! Why!!!

6. Coffee

Can't live without it but UGH, K-cups are ridiculously priced.

7. Peanut Butter

If you're anything like me, this is a go-to essential but holy cow is it expensive, especially if you go through a jar every two weeks.

8. School Supplies

Pens, notebooks, highlighters, etc... BIC pens and reusing last years notebooks it is.

9. Cooking/baking supplies

I love baking and cooking but the second I realize my apartment/dorm doesn't come with the essentials (flour, oils, spices, etc.) my house at home does is when I grow frustrated and give up on the idea.

10. Healthy foods

Okay I love eating healthy and try so hard to do it consistently but they make it really hard when fruit/vegetables/healthy meats are insanely priced!

To Boldly Go Where No Man Has Gone Before...

One of the things that I love most is space. I am a HUGE space nerd. Literally ask any of my friends. I was first introduced to space when my dad dragged me to see Star Trek. Since walking out of that movie theater in 6th grade, becoming an astronaut hasn't been just some wild dream that could come true.
