yeah but i mean do people tend to nick the food? i thought lots of things get pinched from the fridges
Well in my block there was only a problem at the very beginning when someone ate someone elses out of date mini pancakes. It was delt with efficiently thanks to a 'lost pancakes' style poster with a few threats (such as 'a good ******* kick' ) thrown in for good meaure. Other than that there were no other problems I know about! But we did label our food to avoid confusion etc.
It's really up to you, take a cool box if you want. I'm in halls again next year and won't be.
Meh, in my flat we all pinched a slice or two of bread of a bit of milk whenever we ran out but when we bought a new loaf/bottle you let the other person have some. It worked pretty well. No-one stole food though.
