    So which one of these supermarkets are the cheapest? Asda?

    Also, is it cheaper to buy online? I mean, you have to pay 3.50 pounds for delivery, but you get 20 percent discount when shopping online, dont you?
    Some offcer a introductory discount, so will be off your first shopping order, but would most likely have to be over £50 total.
    After your first time, they are same price as the store,
    Sometimes if they run out of you product you get a alternative, and sometimes you get extra things by mistake :-)

    I dont like online shopping, as you dont get to see/hold the products, or get the good deals, like bogof,

    I just bought a single duvet from Asda for £6.50 and pillows were 2 for £5 ready to take with me to halls..They were the cheapest options at Asda but you may be able to get them even cheaper elsewhere.
    Bedding tends to be fairly cheap to pick up also
    when are you moving over?

    Thanks for the tips. I guess I'll buy everything there, 'cause if it's that cheap, there's no reason for me to bring this from home.

    I'm coming to Preston on August 13th, I'll be staying in Boatman's Court.

    Nah, maybe excited a little bit. Not so much though. Just want to get on with my studies as soon as possible, and start practicing.
    Hey, thanks. Well, I hope so. I've been to Preston for a couple of days in the beginning of summer, loved it.
    What course you're doing? Where are you coming from, Manchester/Liverpool? That's great, I wonder how friendly people are in North England, and would someone invite me to stay after I end up with no money, and just homeless.

    i'm going to be studying fashion, how about you?
    i live in a really small town at the moment that no-ones ever heard of! so moving to a city is going to be a big change! Northerners tend to be really friendly (although i guess i would say that seen as im a northerner!) aww and im sure you won't end up poor and homeless!!
    u thinking of gettin a part time job? i just handed in my notice for my job so its probably going to be me thats got no money!

    Hey, Fashion's nice! Interesting! Me, I'm doing Acting.
    Great, I won't be alone on that moving to a new place thing.
    I haven't got a part-time job yet, but yeah, I'm thinking of getting one, 'cause that's the only way I'd feed myself. Well, I'll guess we both end up in similar place, but we'll figure something out.

    Acting also seems like a good subject, hope u enjoy it!
    At least with you moving earlier than everyone else, it will give you a head start on the job hunting.
    Good luck with the move Maybe see you around campus in September!

    Yeah, I'll try to start hunting as soon as possible. I'll give a notice if I'll find any extra places.
    Thanks. You too. Great, hope to catch up with you later. Take care.

    Hey everybody,

    Just yesterday came to Preston. I'm in Boatman's Court. Wondering what's the cheapest place for buying food - Home Bargains? And don't you guys add salt when cooking? Can't find it anywhere.

    Preston's great. Cheers

    Home Bargains is cheap but doesn't have a massive range of stuff. Try Iceland, it's near the outdoor market that is up the road from Home Bargains. Or there's Aldi which is right by Boatman's Court on Corporation Street in that little shopping area with the big car park as you go into town.

    You can't find SALT?

    I thought lots of English people were known for covering their food in salt.

    Alright, one more question in "The Cheapest" section. Who can suggest the cheapest place to buy some good meat in Preston? Chicken, to be exact. Thanks.

    Yep, the entrance is right near Iceland. Downstairs market sells food, the upstairs market sells all kinds of things.

    Cheers!

    Fellas, what's the cheapest place in Preston to buy clothes? Is it TK-MAX in Fishergate Center, or is there something else that's even cheaper? Like jeans, and tops...

    Thanks in advance!
