    Q- What is B+M?

    Also, I've never seen a poundshop/99p store in my uni town...and I don't know if there is one in the town nearest me at home...but there is an aldi?

    I would/will go to lidls or whatever next year at uni but it was too far when living on campus.

    There isn't one where I live, but I used to buy shampoo and shower gel there at uni. No point being snobby about it when you're a poor student!

    Cans of fizzy drink tend to be a great purchase. I do feel quite embarrassed walking into it.

    **** yes, i do.

    In fact, the Woolworths in my hometown, is being replaced with what?

    A PoundMart!

    Hells Yeah!

    Student Living, ftw

    Although some of the stuff in there is expensive

    I mean i can get watch batteries for 70p, not a goddamn pound.

    Damn It.

    I always find that most things are worth less than 25p in my local £1 stores.

    I love getting good stuff cheaply!

    It sounds counter-intuitive, but it has a bit of a gloat-factor attached with it!
    I mean, if someone got something for £8.00, and you got it for 1/8 of the price ...

    I do, but you've got to be wary of being persuaded that everything in there's a bargain. Quite a lot of stuff they sell in poundland, you can get elsewhere for less than a pound!!

    I just can't stand those stores for food and drink sorry. The only food which touches my lips comes from Sainsbury's, M&S, Waitrose and Brixton Market. Me thinks they are well nice :holmes:

    hell yea! I almost bought a TV ariel for my freeview from Dixons for £30 and saw the same thing in poundland for ONE POUND!!!

    Plus some super expensive stuff like batteries are dirt cheap. Poundland rules for the odd stuff. Primark too (for socks, boxers ect.) its almost cheaper for me to buy brand new socks than wash them at the launderette

    Never buy the batteries! I got 10 for a pound (obviously :p:) and they lasted about 10 seconds before my camera turned itself off again. Not happy...I didn't expect them to last long, but it wasn't even long enough to take a picture!
