Has Your Food Ever Been Stolen? | Tips To Stop Food Swiping


I felt like I don't do as many student posts as I should so today I thought that I would do a student based post as I know that a good few of you that read this blog and myself are students and we all need something to read from time to time!

When it comes to students starting imiversity for the first time, there are many thoughts that run through their head such as will I know where I'm going? Will I have enough clothes? Will I have enough items to cure my boredom? Will I try and not blow through money within the first two weeks? Will I get along with my other housemates?... But the main question that they forget to ask themselves is 'Do I have enough food to last even if someone else that I'm sharing accomodation with steals my food?'...

A survey from Start Your Busiiness Mag has revealed that nearly one third of people including office workers and students living in shared accommodation have had their food stolen from a communal fridge.  Due to the high statics that have came from this research, I thought that I would share some tips on how to avoid the serious problem of someone else stealing your food.

Tip 1; Labels:

You could always get labels printed with something like 'This is my food. Do not steal' with your name on the end or something that comes from the foods point of view so it makes it look more cute. This should cause the food stealer to realise, read and put the food back. This would be such a cute idea to stop food from being stolen and I think that labels from Data Label would do the job well as they will label anything. They also carried out the research for the study so it makes sense to buy from them in my opinion

Tip 2; Just Tell Them.

This tip is plain and simple. find the victim or gather everyone up that you suspect and tell them. This does the job well and means that they have no excuse to be stealing your food!

Tip 3: Boxes.

If the two fail then I would suggest getting very tight lid tupperware to put the food into as they might be trying to take it when they come in from a night out so if the box is hard to get open then they will either cry about it and realise that they need to get some sleep or leave it and try and get something else to eat. You could always get your tupperware from Amazon as Amazon are normally quite cheap. Ebay is also a good place to get a lot of them for cheap.

Has your food ever been stolen? Have you used any of the tips that I have mentioned? Let me know down below!

I hope that you have enjoyed this post and I hope that you come back next time to read my next post! If you are a student then I hope that you have a good week!
