Office workers are spending an average of £1,000 per year on sandwiches for lunch, research from www.nigelsecostore.com has revealed.
More than a third buy their sandwiches rather than make their own, with the average spend per day at £3.
Some workers are spending up to £5, while about half of those surveyed sometimes buy a drink with their sandwich, adding another one or two pounds to the cost.
The survey also revealed that three times the number of women make their own sandwiches compared to men.
