The challenges of living alone can be overwhelming. Alongside the joys of quiet & peace of mind comes a heightened cost of living and empty hours to wile away. Groceries purchased for the potential of a delicious meal slowly grow mold and soften during a string of unexpected stressful days.

You know how difficult it can be to eat a whole loaf of bread before it grows mold or to finish a gallon of milk before it sours.
