I thought it would be an idea to have a thread for anyone who's flat broke and needs a bit of cheering up. So here's the first post. The only rules are it should be for fun things, and either be free or very very cheap (preferably £1 or £2, and no more than £5).
So let's start with BOOKS! It's magic getting lost in a good book. Borrow books for free from the local library, swap with friends, or pick them up for nothing from your local bookcrossing group (find them on http://www.bookcrossing.com
If you have a pound or two to spare, buy second hand from a charity shop. Or hunt down what you want on ReadItSwapIt or BookMooch, and just pay for the postage.http://www.readitswapit.co.uk/TheLibrary.aspxhttp://bookmooch.com/
If there's a specific title you're after then track it down on eBay, or the marketplaces on Amazon.co.uk or Play.com, and make sure you don't get overcharged on the postage and packaging fees.
