Stop touching my bologna and tequila!

Food theft: the No. 1 topic of passive aggressive notes.

Food theft: the No. 1 topic of passive aggressive notes.
Other than the risk of being killed in your sleep, the worst thing about living with someone you barely know is that she might steal your food.

But even if tough times force some of us to bunk with virtual strangers, we can worry just a little less about food theft thanks to these three products.

No. 3: Moldy sandwich bag

Sick, but effective.

This tricky bag may seem like the perfect way to keep grubby fingers off your food. But there's just one problem: Your roommate may feel like she's doing some community good by throwing out your moldy leftovers, leaving you with no lunch.

No. 2: Locking cup
Just make sure you don't lose the key.

Housemate never does the dishes? Now you can make sure there's always at least one clean cup. When the key is out, the cup is useless. Maybe this way you won't have to resort to using paper plates for every meal or, worse, doing someone else's dishes. (This one seems to be an invention in search of a manufacturer, but with a Dremel tool and a cork you could probably make your own.)

No. 1: Liquor lock
It gets harder to open as the night goes on.

This product takes the top slot purely for the item it protects. You can take my sandwich. You can take my leftovers. But don't you dare touch my liquor. Plus, this product kills two birds with one stone -- it keeps unwanted drinkers out of your stuff and inadvertently lets you know when you've had enough. If you have to break the bottle because you can't turn the dials, it might be time to switch to Pepsi.
