Its more like £15 when I include the drink I buy at uni etc. However because I live at home I get most the of the food paid for me. I do have to pay my mum £300 a year though.

Music Zone is a Manchester based firm (well Stockport) they do have shops in Trafford Centre and a large one on Market Street near the food chain.
