    You'll have difficulties finding really really cheap stuff in Germany, we don't have an equivilant of Primark. C&A has some good cheap stuff but not to the same extend.

    Perhaps stock up on cheap basics (tshirts etc) while here and then only buy the occasional thing while over there.
    Tbh you shouldn't need too much new stuff during 5 months.
    I loathe Primark anyway so that's fine :p:

    And I don't think I'll need too much, but with small children, my stuff's more likely to get wrecked in a short amount of time, and I need some new things anyway Thanks!

    I don't know anything about Germany, but having lived abroad a few times I'd say that generally it turns out to be a lot harder finding stuff abroad than you'd think, cos you're missing out on all the general knowledge. It'll probably be much simpler just to buy clothes in the UK.

    Also, only bring clothes which go with everything. If you bring a t-shirt which only goes with one particular pair of jeans, you'll never end up wearing it.

    I asked my friend Elke just before I left work: She said C&A is your best bet, then there's a store called K & L. Other than that she said online catalogues are a good idea. She said there's one along the lines of "Wie ich bin". Thanks for the rep and I hope this helps.
