Everyone is doing everything in their power to keep their fridges and cupboards stocked up amid self-isolation fears.
It includes one smart mum who created a set of strict “pantry rules” to ensure her family doesn’t eat all of the food in the house.
She titled the rules: “New pantry rules for Coronavirusgedden” and anonymously shared a picture of it online.
The list of rules was taped to the inside of her cupboard, and set out exactly what food could and couldn’t be eaten during these unprecedented times.
The first rule said: “Nobody goes into the pantry for food or snacks without asking first. No willy nilly pantry visits allowed”.
She continued by saying that nobody should open a new box of cereal “until the old, unopened boxes are eaten and gone”.
The third rule then said that under no circumstances can anyone reach for food in the cupboard unless a “piece of fruit, vegetable or yoghurt” has been eaten first.
But the fourth rule is has definitely proven to be a firm favourite amongst Facebook users.
With one saying: “Point 4 needs to be in size 100 font for me.”
And another commenting: “Please read point 4. More than once. K thanks.”
Rule four said: “If anyone touches or eats my CADBURY EGGS, you’re going to wish you had coronavirus and died” – well then…
The post has received 2,500 reactions, 1,600 shares and 950 comments, with many praising the mum’s funny idea.
One person said: “I need this for my fridge as well. My two and six-year-olds go nuts on everything. I’ve even had to have ‘the talk’ to my six-year-old about the ridiculous amount of toilet paper she uses.”
Another said: “Might print this out”.
A third joked: “I wish my kids read this before I had six boxes of cereal opened”.
