Wow, I do a combination of these things as well!
I will keep certain things at work, especially because it keeps me away from the vending machine. So healthy versions of snack bars and fruit cups.
I hardly ever buy candy, but if I do I get the "best" one and freeze it. I've been getting this Lindt dark chocolate one with the orange flavor. I freeze it, and when I want a square I have it there. I usually have one square a week. I think it costs $1.99 but when I think of all of the candy I don't buy anymore it's a good deal.
Trigger foods cannot come into the house AT ALL! This would be chips, pretzels and salty snacks. Pop chips, Pirate's Booty and all the other "healthy" snacks go too. I even eat the stale crackers and the ones I don't like. I cannot be around them or I eat them all immediately. Period.
Pizza I try to always make myself, so while it is one of those foods I have trouble with, I make it myself and try to make it special, so I appreciate it more. And use good ingredients. I still over eat a little, but lately I have been taking a second helping it and freezing it for lunch the next day. I found if it's not frozen I will eat it anyway. Who doesn't like cold pizza?
For bulk food I do buy frozen unbreaded chicken breast filets, fruits and vegetables, IQF shrimp and fish. Canned beans, brown rice, pastas, chicken broth, etc. Other than that I really shop weekly.
Once my son moves out, I will probably have even less in the house. I still cook 4 portions of dinner every night, DH, myself and DS and one for work the next day. It will be half come Dec 1.
