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! :)

Morrisons is pretty cheap for almonds - look for the pink 400g bags from Natco. Should be about £2.40 (I saw the same ones in Sainsbury's for £2.99). Aldi is great for hazelnuts and walnut pieces, haven't seen them cheaper anywhere else, even bulk buying. Cashews sometimes go on special offer around Indian festival times. Or yeah, if you have 'ethnic' groceries nearby it's worth checking those out. Chinese, Indian or Polish shops near me have all had good bargains.
