Larder List

When you move into new digs, hopefully the cupboards have been cleaned out, and you start with none of the basic larder items that you will need every day.
We have worked on the assumption that space will be limited, and you may have to keep these items in a box under your bed. All items are long life, and purchased in small quantities to save space. It's worth buying a plastic storage box (30 litre with lid about £2.99) at the beginning. This has the added advantage of stopping items going missing!

Start with small quantities, half bags of flour etc. Altervatively buy in bulk and share out to small quantites with friends.
