    Default **spin off** do you store food/staples for visitors that you don't consume yourself..

    .. a spin off from the coffee thread...

    do you keep things in your house for visitors/guests that you don't actually use yourself, what is it, why/why not?

    I never realised I did it but after reading the other thread I do and now im wondering if I am odd?

    we always have
    • milo for DHs grandma
    • drinking chocolate for anyone who wants it
    • UHT soy milks/UHT lactose free milk/UHT almond milk
    • UHT cream (we dont really eat cream)
    • coffee for stove top/coffee beans/milk frother etc
    • non wheat items (rice cakes, GF bread, mountain bread etc)
    • primas for kids
    • basic cereals (cornflakes, weatbix - we only eat Oats)
    • assorted teas (we only drink peppermint)

    I live a couple hrs from family though so when we have visitors they tend to stay for the weekend/overnight - maybe it has just got easier to have a selection of things and keep them in freezer then chase them up once they are here. (we live in coutnry)
