Nuts!

Hi everyone!
So in my first couple of months, being vegan here has been more of an adjustment than I thought it would be, but happily I am back on track :)
I am curious, however, about the best places to buy nuts. I'm a grad student so money is extremely tight, and I basically live off of tesco everyday value ;) In my experience, some nuts will be cheaper than others (depending on place, back home in CA almonds are the cheapest) but everything here seems to be fairly comparable to each other in price.
I've yet to make it to Whole Foods, and normally I would think buying bulk is a great idea, but I'm doubting it'll save me any money considering the product I want specifically.
Particularly I'd like affordable almonds, cashews and (though I know this will never happen, as they're always pricey) walnuts.
Thanks for any tips and advice! :)

Almonds, walnuts and hazelnuts are very cheap in Aldi and their cashews, though not cheap, are significantly cheaper than tesco. I also find that big bags of nuts are cheap in my local Home Bargains, but I know stocks varies across those shops. It's also worth checking your nearest China Town or World Foods supermarket.
