Summary of project A fridge was donated to our organization and we set it up in the student lounge. We stock the fridge with drinks and snacks from Costco and charge just a small mark up (which makes the drinks and snacks much cheaper than those available in the cafeteria). Students write down how much they owe after taking from the fridge and we collect their tab at the end of the month. We have entitled the fridge our ‘AMSA Quickie Mart.’

Lessons/suggestions This is done on an honor system, since we don't have the ability to monitor if students accually write down how much they owe each time they take something from the fridge. So far we have noticed some missing items, but overall we are making a decent pro
