Things just disappear from cupboards yet noone has eaten or used the last of something?
Went to make myself a cup of tea last night - no teabags yet noone has had tea If I buy myself something on the weekend for the week I go to get it and yup it's gone, just magically disappeared.
GOD it drives me bonkers.
On Saturday I bought 6 packets fo Dairylea strip cheese for Louie. There were 2 left in the fridge this morning. That's 22 eaten in 2 days! I know Louie hasn't eaten all of those and I know who it is but they just lie to my face and it drives me MENTAL!

No, but then I don't have teens (yet), and my piggy H is away all week.
One of our fridge freezers is in the garage, the door is locked, and is too high for the kids to open.
If C comes downstairs, I can see him through the glass lounge door. He always asks before he takes stuff though.

It annoys me when H says he has no coffee, sugar etc. How am I meant to know that, I don't use the stuff
15/10/2013 at 10:08
No because I get there first
I imagine it will be a different story when my children are older though. I used to sneak food up to my room all the time

Worst thing here is when H leaves a tiny bit of butter or milk or whatever so he doesn't have to throw the carton out or go buy some to replace it
Lying to you must be so bl00dy annoying. I hate lying.

I get things get used up, I understand that but I certainly don't expect 22 sodding cheese strings to be gone with 2 days because some lazy bint can't be bothered to cook a proper meal so stands at the fridge and scoffs. EAT PROPERLY!
And Weekender K does this with stuff, uses the last and doesn't tell anyone - it was her with the teabags - last time i had tea was about 3 weeks ago so as far as I'm concerned there are still 60odd bags in the cupboard. Why a 13yo needs to drink tea is beyond me. And squash she'll leave the tenniest bit of squash in the botle incase someone wants a drink yet ther isn't enough to warrant making a drink

Hahahahaha - yes!
Mostly biscuits in my house though. I buy biscuits but I rarely have them, when I fancy one they are ALWAYS gone. Or I make myself a nice dinner in advance and it gets eaten, or I go to the fridge to get some ingredients out to make something and it's gone when I'm already halfway through cooking. E isn't so bad, she is just unbelievably messy so if she makes something she leaves all the packets/crumbs/instruments used on the side. Drives me batty.

No because I don't have a teenager yet.
You need to get a board in the kitchen so that people can make a note when they take the last of something or, even better, when something is getting low on stocks.
We'll never run out of cereal as my H is incapable of going past them in the supermarket without buying all the special offers. At one stage we had 20 (yes, 20) boxes of cereal stocked up in our under stairs cupboard. That's for 2 adults and one small child. I had to ban him from buying anything for months.

Cedar it's not hard to tell us when things are out why would they write it down. We'd still get the same excuse "sorry I forgot"

Its taken my h 11 years but over the past few months he's started asking if he can have the last of the meat/cheese/milk etc, previously he'd take say the last of the milk leave a dribble and put back! Or he'd have the last of the cold meat (by last of I mean half a pack and he'd use on a sandwich!) and leave the pack NEXT TO the bin!
He also takes the tin opener to work regularly which is extremely annoying!!

Yes this happens in my house - but I don't have teenagers, its my H!! He doesn't seem to realise how much of something he's eaten/used and when I ask if he ate/used all of something swears he didn't.
It's really annoying, and I'm dreading when the girls get older and do it too!

not since we instigated having a list on the notice board to make a note of things we need to replace when we use them up, that said disco can't help himself yet so I am sure we have that joy to come. I would be fuming if I went to get something and it had all gone and 22 cheese things in 2 days is just stupid mindless eating if they have all been eaten by 1 person.
I know it affects other people but I would be so tempted not to replace something until someone told me it had gone.

My H leaves loo roll holders strewn across the bathroom, but always denies using the last of the loo roll... Es babybels magically disappear just like your cheese strings Belle. It drives me slightly nuts too
15/10/2013 at 11:05
No, its not hard to tell you that they've eaten things, but having the noticeboard right there they might be able to write it down. If you're not there at the very time they use it up then it is easy to forget. Especially for teenagers who have other more 'important' things on their minds.
WS I reckon my H thinks there's a magical way that the new toilet rolls make it from the cupboard where they are stored to the bathroom where they are needed.
15/10/2013 at 11:06
Oh god yes the babybel have gone as well but I only got 2 packets of those so understand that one.
Don't get me started on toilet rolls not being replaced either. FFS the holder is next to the LOO!!
15/10/2013 at 21:46
My H does the loo roll thing- leaves like one sheet or a shred of a sheet on the loo roll so he doesn't have to change it!
16/10/2013 at 13:59
My SD uses all the sanitary towels, then doesn't tell me! That's a PITA! Loo rolls are a thing aswell. We brought a pack of 4 chocolate bars, and when I went to get one the day after I brought then, there was ONE left!! I asked H, no he haden't had any, SD had eaten THREE in one day!! in one day!!! iI's no wonder she wasn't sick! I was not impressed!
17/10/2013 at 08:20
Oh yeah I get the sanitary products thing too despite me bulk buying!. I swear they change every time they pee which is a couple times an hour grrrrr!
