To celebrate the publication of our first-ever book, The Frisky 30-Day Breakup Guide, we’re re-running the original series that inspired it, and having writer Maude Standish bravely road test the book’s expanded tasks and tips. So follow along, chart your own progress, and find out everything else you need to know to forget he-who-shall-not-be-named!
Go Grocery Shopping
You’re single now, and you can buy what you want. No picking up bacon and Budweiser or catching flack from a guy for your steady Diet Coke habit. He hated Pirate’s Booty? Guess what: you’re buying three bags. You feel like eating gourmet brie on Ritz crackers every single evening this week? Go right ahead. Pick up 16 different flavors of low-fat yogurt and throw them all onto the conveyor belt with gusto. Congratulations! You’ve got your fridge back.
