Marks and Spencer grocery stores host a wide array of packaged sandwiches which make for affordable meals or snacks, here's the kicker, they actually taste good. Prices range from £1.40 to £3.50 for some of the heartier ones. My favorite out of the ones we got was the BLT (£2.20). The BLT was very filling and it was worth paying a bit extra because the other two sandwiches were a bit bland.When you compare these prices to restaurants that you'd go to for a light lunch you defiantly save a lot this way. You can save the money you didn't spend or you can splurge and get deserts and drinks while you're at it: Do yourself a big favor and don't buy these pre made drinks, I ended up pouring my gin and tonic out and was left sober.
