Do cheap dumbell sets exist????

I have been trying to create a weightlifting routine with out the use of dumbells but I think it is just impossible. Every routine that I run into has at least two or more dumbell exercises. Do you guys know of any online stores that I could get a set of dumbells for CHEAP. Do they make dumbells with switchable plates? That might be cheaper? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    dumbells are more of a luxury IMO for a home gym. to make your own you need loads of small plate (5-10kg), any larger and they are gonna interefer with your ROM. barbells are better to start with a home gym:

    push- barbell bench, dips, shoulder press, tricep exercise

    pull- deads, rows, chins, barbell bicep curl

    legs- squat, stiff leg deads, calf exercise

    no dumbells in the above routine m8

    i personally LOVE dumbells, but buying a 20kg set from argos aint gonna last you m8 when you can afford it, get a couple of dumbell bars and lots of 10kg plates, then you can expand your exercises and alter the weights for bench, rows, shoulder press etc etc

    You're not very familiar with the '£' symbol? (pound sterlin) the currency of the United Kingdom.

    Where on earth do you live?

    At first I was thinking, "No way can I join a gym, wayyy to expensive and I have most of the equipment at home". But now that I may be buying a set of dumbells maby my local gym is within my price range. I have actually worked for the owner of the gym and recieved a free punch card for like 15 days along with my pay. It isn't the greatest gym and I don't remember seeing dumbells (I doubt they don't have dumbbells) but it is worth looking into now.

    US - Minnesota. I also don't know the ratio between kg and pounds although we use gram measurments in science class everyday. I personally think the US should get rid of pounds/quarts/inches and take up grams/liters/meters. That would make things soo much easier.

    Have you tried looking in WallMart?

    1kg = 2.2lb (approx).
