Cheap (but Nice) Shopping Places in Norwich, UK

As a student, probably we need to save our money for various purposes:  to travel around UK and European (Schengen) countries during Summer or Winter Break, to buy things, or simply because we must be finances so as not wasteful.

Here’s some places you can buy things cheap,  new goods or the second hand ones:

located in Castle Mall and Anglia Square, the stores offer all things with 99 pence only.

Poundland :  http://www.poundland.co.uk/
everything is 1 pound here.  We can find them at City Center (2 in St. Stephen’s Street) and Anglia Square

Here, for some items,  the price is quite cheap, even if we compare it to 99p and Poundland. For example, we can buy a box of eggs, bread,  and 4 pints of fresh milk for only 1 pound for each item.

Charity Shops:
Here, we can find nice  second hand stuff. But, the availability depends on when people give their goods for free to the stores. The stores are in some areas of the city, including at Anglia Square, Castle Meadow (City Center), near Norwich Bus Station, Queen’s Road, etc. Here is the list ofthe stores: 
Arminghall Car Boot Sale, Near owr Flat

Car Booth Sale:  
it is the paradise of used goods! I found a nice  for only 6 pounds. You can find almost anything here, as long as you are not lazy to dig them up and hunt them down.  One of them is Arminghall CarBooth Sale:   the sellers sell their things from their own cars in a football field.

Freecycle
You can join a mailing list of Freecycle, when people gave away their goods for free. We can ask for free stuffs here as well. Subscribe here: norwichukfreecycle@mod.freecycle.org
