Trying to decide which meal deal combination to get is a a struggle most of us know all too well. Go premium, your colleagues think your a snob, go for plain ham on white bread with a bottle of water and they'll probably contact HR. It's a very fine line.
So when you find the perfect balance, it's a cause for celebration. Well, one woman did just that when she got a tattoo of her favourite meal deal on her leg.
While at university, Lizzie Proctor, from Bournemouth, became known as the 'meal deal queen', religiously buying the same one - chicken wrap, cheese and onion crisps and a Lucozade - every day from Tesco during her time as a student. Without fail.
And since her love affair with the chicken wrap began, the 22-year-old reckons she must have eaten hundreds, forking out more than £3,000 in the process.
Now, that's a level of commitment most people's love lives haven't witnessed, never mind a lunch time snack.
Lizzie said: "Every day, without skipping a day I ate a meal deal from the local Tesco... always southern fried chicken wrap, baked cheese and onion crisps and a Lucozade Sport."
"It was always the same. I just loved a good bargain especially whilst at uni. And this habit carried on into my adult life. I say this with a trusty Tesco meal deal to my side."
She added: "I basically have a few 'questionable' tattoos such as the pope holding coconut oil - 'popeanut' and I wanted to add to my weird collection."
And it wasn't long before the folks at Tesco got wind of Lizzie's quirky body art and contacted her to say thanks.
Lizzie said: "After deciding to get the tattoo from another artist, I posted a photo of it online.
"My friends found it hilarious of course. And took it upon their own hands to tweet Tesco's to get their attention for this walking advertisement.
"They replied to my friend asking for my Twitter and after they sent me a direct message asking me for my address to thank me by sending me a 'surprise'.
"A few days later a mystery box arrived. It was filled with crisps, biscuits and sweets, with a note from Tesco thanking me for my dedication and complementing the tattoo."
She added: "I mean I would have preferred a life-long supply of meal deals, but beggars can't be choosers right."
And even though she's no longer a student, the former music undergraduate still picks one up most days.
"I've probably eaten over 1000 meal deals - enough to cover rent for a few months. I just fell in love with it," she says. "I have curbed the habit now though and brought it back to about four a week. Meal deals are life."
