Need help Don't have plate magnets for my gym, any ideas?

Don't have cash to buy dumbbell plate magnets for my gym since the dumbbells only go up by 10's, and since I'm doing frankie's routine were you add 5 pounds each week makes me unable to do.

Should I stay on same weight for 2 weeks then jump up to 10 pounds....any ideas?

    have a read here mate:

    http://www.muscletalk.co.uk/m_871560/mpage_1/key_progression/tm.htm

    when i had trouble with dumbbells i would build up the reps

    5x5 (easily)
    4x5 + 1xfailure (8 or 9 mabey)
    end of session
    next week try the next weight up
    mabey 5x4
    then build reps back up to 5x5
