Cheap wifi dongle that works directly?

Hi, I'm expecting my Rpi within a couple of weeks, and all I now need to get it up and running nicely would be a wifi dongle. However, since I am a massive newbie when it comes to programming etc..., I would like one that would work straight away (i.e: no complicated or slightly complicated tinkering needed). Also, being relatively skint, I can only afford one costing maximum eleven pounds (i can maybe stretch it to twelve ). I would be extremely grateful for any suggestions, preferably from people who have first hand exeperience rather than hearsay, but any advice is welcome!
