    I would spend my last £1 on: value pasta, value tin of toms, tin of value tuna and a sprig of spring onions with whats left. I would make a huge pan of tuna pasta with toms & onions and nibble on it as and when needed.

    (You can plant the spring onions in a plant pot on your kitchen window sill and cut off what you need and the onions keep growing, so it can be used over & over.)

    I would buy 3 tins of Asda Smartprice baked beans and sausages for 28p each (84p) and a bottle of Asda Smartprice orange squash (16p). 3 days worth of meals right there for £1.

    Geeeee! Well at least we all now know that even when you're down to your last pound, you'll be able to feed yourself for at least another three days! hehe

    I really can't make the pound go further than some of you folks can at the moment but it has definately motivated me to keep on trying to nail it.

    I'm afraid to declare, that not only have space raiders gone up to 15p, so have chomps.

    A sad sad day for snack size chocoloate lovers everywhere.

    Actually let me rephrase that, it makes it sound like a sad day for snack size people who love chocolate.

    Disappointment for lovers of snack size chocolate everywhere.

    10 packets of pickled onion Space Raiders! :D

    (I lived on them when I was a student - occasionally I would have a 10p Chomp for dessert :rotfl:)

    Unfortunately they are both 15p in our local store...the space raiders even had the 15p as part of the packaging :(

    EDITED to say that I missed Sammz and moz86 posts

    You can buy loads of the 8p noodles ( own brand) Chuck in some tuna and you will be eating for days!:rotfl:

    8 fresh-baked rolls/cobs =9p
    6 fresh-baked sausage rolls=19p
    4 pies =39p (savory and sweet)
    We have even had the ready cooked chickens reduced to 69p each and bought 3, made no end onf meals including soup, stir-frys etc.

    My BF and I have lived on £5 for a week, as long as you don't mind eating what's available. We turned it into a game!:rotfl:
