    £1 buys me a cup of soup at work. They only do it on cold days, so on hot days you have to shell out £3 for a sandwich or go hungry. I tend to look at the sandwiches, think twice and walk away.

    I just wish I could gain the motivation to make lunch for work!
    I want to be credit card and loan free by Christmas 2010

    When I was a student I used to live on space raider and salad cream sandwiches on cheap white 9p bread from Kwik Save. My insides must have been crying out for help!

    And from somewhere like Costco, you'd get 200+ cola bottles, as the big boxes mean the sweets are often worth less then half a penny.
