    When a dairylea triangle followed by a spoonful of peanut butter constitutes a balanced meal.
    Never saw the appeal of peanut butter by itself, I always have to have it on something...

    Wearing the same clothes repeatedly without washing...they don't smell and have no suspicious stains, its ok right?
    The tea/coffee cup thing... Occasionally i realise and put it through the dishwasher.
    The stash of alcohol in your cupboard costs more than your textbooks.
    You enter competitions and do online surveys purely for the possibility of getting money/free stuff.
    You volunteer at open day/orientation in order to get free stuff.
    Tea and coffee become meal substitutes

    Em doesn't everyone do that. Unless you wash then after every time you wear them. Now that would be excessive unless I've been doing it wrong all these years.

    no- I always wash my underwear and tops after one use, that would be unhygenic otherwise.

    Underwear ye but tops I would disagree but then I am a guy
    Unless I've been sweating or something in this climate during the winter it's fine so I wear shirts for a multiple of days before I wash them but then again I'm not in it all day as I get changed once I get home anyway.

    To say it's unhygenic I would say is going a bit far each person has their own preference I would barely have no clothes if I washed them after each wear. As long as you don't smell and you feel comfortable it's not really an issue?

    I guess, just at home my Mum would always wash my tops after one wear, and I've kinda come to see that as the norm.

    Unless one sweats a lot or generally stinks, washing tops after one day is totally unnecessary. Agree about the underwear though
