Ew! I HATE beans.
They make me fart.
And I didnt mean food wise, I meant stuff to cook with.

Well I can't remember everything, but I've got:


I'll add more if and when I think of it.

Is it just kitchen stuff you need? Have you got stuff for your bedroom?

Hmn. Well, I think it depends on how much cooking you do/can see yourself doing. For me, I'm going to bring:

- a couple of saucepans (big one and small one), a small wok, a frying pan that I've already been given, colander
- various utensils (including hand whisk, spatula, grater, wooden spoon, knives?)
- cutting board
- can opener
- cork screw
- baking sheet/tray
- electric scales / measuring cup (well, if you actually plan to cook to a lot of recipes it'd be useful, anyway)
- hand blender (but only because I've already been given it)
- electric whisk (ditto above)
- plates, bowls, glasses, cutlery (I dare say you could just get one of each but there's always the possibility of things going missing or breaking)
- oils and spices etc. for cooking, because they're expensive to buy all at once when you first arrive

I've probably forgotten something but that's the gist of what I'm bringing. Of course, you could always get by like my cousin and just take a small saucepan and a can opener and live on spaghetti hoops and takeaway. :rolleyes:

Im getting majority of my stuff from here in Hong Kong because it costs absolutely nothing compared to how expensive everything is over there. So Ill go insane. Thank god for my father's flyer miles. Hes allowed to carry on 50kgs worth of baggage and I get to carry something like 25.

With my currently unlimited funds, I will not only buy all of the above, I will also arrive at Heathrow in my private jet.

Seriously, though, I'd go broke if I bought all that :no:

Damn. I'm flying alone, and I only get 30kg (which is very generous of them, cause normally I'd get 20...)! I'm seriously wondering how I'm going to cram my room into one suitcase...

Debenhanms have everything, but very overpriced. I guess it depends how much money you have, but I work at Matalan, and bought pretty much all of my uni stuff there, except for kettle, toaster, sandwich maker. These are cheaper in Tesco - like £3 or something stupid! Can't go wrong for that price!

You're going to need a load of other stuff if you're on your own.


If you go on here (pages 28-29) there are many things to give you an idea of Mataln prices, for example the storage boxes, clothes horse, duvet, pillows, pop up laundry bins etc. And on page 30, there's a set for £60 with saucepans, frying pan, utensils, baking tray, which would be a lot cheaper than buying seperately.

Most of this stuff is in Matalan too, but even cheaper! Tesco and Matalan would probably be your best places to shop, as they'll have everything and very cheap.

There's loads more, which I'll add when I think of it.

Basically my mum and nan have been buying most of that sort of stuff for me, like a few things a week for a few months. When you're buying it all in one it will add up very quickly, I'm sure.
