    I forgot my wallet today and all I had on me was £1.20 in change. Managed to get a cheese sandwich from Asda for a pound (I know, living the dream) but since I get an allowance for lunch of close to a fiver I’m actually the best part of £4 up on the day.


    Homemade potato and leek soup with blue cheese. No work at the moment so plenty of time.


    I have leftovers most days, so the cost is contained within the previous night’s food budget. On the days I don’t have them, lunch here is £2.50 for a choice of baked spud OR soup OR baguette OR normal meal-type thing.

    That’s quality. Not found many companies doing that.


    I make it at home so about a pound at a guess. The most expensive part would be the chicken drumstick or the half can of tuna.

    rice /pasta /beans
    mixed veg
    chicken /tuna


    Jam ‘n’ cheese sandwich – home-made of course – so not a lot of pennies.

    Will – you forgot to budget for a creme egg, have you overdosed?

    £1.60ish odd for me.
    4 slices of hovis bread (small loaf bakery made, not from a supermarket)
    2 slices of turkey and a generous spread of cranberry sauce.
    1 clementine.
    1 very small choclate bar.

    This is the lamest one-upmanship thread yet. how come you aren’t all suffering from malnutrition. a 1 quid cheese sandwhich from asda!?

    Pasty, tin of hoops. £1.30.


    At a guess about £1.75

    Tin of tuna + salad, h+b mayo, evoo and oatcakes. And perhaps a bit of yogurt and fruit.

    Food for the day .-
    Orange / Satsuma / Clemantine
    Peach / Nectarine / Pear depends on season
    2 rounds of Sarnies , Ham or Chicken + extras
    2 – 3 penguin biscuits
    chunk of malt loaf or cinnamon Bagel
    Mini Chedders 1 small pack
    Cost , not sure. C £4.00 probably
