    You don't need a grater - just buy grated cheese. I've also been told by mum not to buy a sieve or colander - there's no reason why I would really need one. (she only uses it for flour when baking)
    No Non-grated cheese is cheaper. Buy a cheese grater. But not from 99p store. It will crumble in your hands.

    My friends went to uni last September and bought all the stuff on the 'what to bring to uni' lists. we were talking the other day and two of them pointed out that there was no point in buying pots and pans because at some point you will end up throwing loads away and sharing one set.

    Is there any point in buying all that stuff knowing that it's likely to go to waste? :confused:
    as little as possible, honestly.

    did you hear me? as little as possible.

    your room will be small and random junk will accumulate and at the end of your first year you will be like: how the hell do i take this all home??

    as little as possible.

    Having seen the state that the meffs my sisters are flatmates with think it's acceptable to leave a kitchen, I won't be sharing any of my pots and pans lol. The pans were about two days from growing legs and walking away. Gross. I don't fancy getting whatever disease they had...

    I know what you mean though, that list does have some dead random stuff on it that you'd never use like an apple corer etc... :/

    No.

    Borrow stuff that other people you know don't use.

    I got a free set of cutlery, a toaster, a couple of pans, a frying pan, a grill thing... loads. Just by putting out some feelers to friends and family.
    Advice: don't everyone do this. Could mean a pretty sucky first night dinner.

    I would definitely recommend bringing at least two different sizes of saucepan, and a frying pan. If you rely on borrowing other people's stuff all the time you will run the risk of pissing people off and coming across like a scrounger. Hardly the best first impression you could give. Also, if everyone happens to be using their kitchen stuff at the same time, you'll be stuck.

    You will have a number of cupboards. It's something that you have to work out with your flatmates. It is usually on a first-come basis and does not make a difference since they are all of the same size usually.

    Why would that be? If you get stuff for free from family, then anything you might definitely actually certainly need you buy, you'll be fine.

    I just don't suggest spending a fortune on stuff you won't use.

    Somehow I managed to skip the bit about friends and family and thought you meant borrow stuff of other people in your flat.

    Sorry, I'll read properly next time
