So tomorrow I get my social security (yay!) and I have been debating about should I buy for the long term or should I buy just for the week.

Now I'm meaning more of food, I was looking at buying 60 eggs which can last me a month at two per day, then of course there's a big ham loaf where I can slice it small and get it down to probably 80 or 90 slices.

Of course I can make my own bread so I don't need to buy the loaves made at the store and since my rent is all inclusive I don't have to worry about power usage, water usage, stuff like that.

I mean I don't have to get out and run around every week, if I don't want to, but it's nice to like have a choice saying yeah I've got all my food, I don't really need to go to the store.

This way I could kind of focus on other things like going to the library going to the doctor's office (well I don't have to go to the doctor's office very often) church, maybe a community center (join the other old codgers bitching about the young shitty drivers)

Now of course I could cut it down to like buying 36 eggs at two per day there's 18 days right there and the ham I could still slice it in so I can still have extra but it's kind of like is this wrong to want this or is this a good idea?

Yes I'm not an extreme introvert but I am an introvert. I do only wish that I could find more free furniture that doesn't look like it's been abused severely.
I think you should stock up and then you don't have to worry about that again. You're set. That's what I do and it works really well
It's usually cheaper to buy in bulk.

There is nothing wrong with stocking up. Just don't get so much that stuff starts going bad.
I used to get a five pound farmland brand boneless ham every month, have it sliced down in 1/4" slices, put two slices in ziptop sandwich baggies and freeze them for sandwiches, they would last me awhile.

@NativePortlander1970 I'm looking at half that.
