Dickblick.com usually has the cheapest prices on items, combined with the discounts they give on non-sale items and free shipping. I create a list so that I meet the discount requirements when I am ready to order. I have an, "I want it now" attitude, so I usually opt-in for 2-3 day Fed-Ex Home delivery and pay $2-4 for shipping (a discounted shipping fee when you meet the free shipping requirement).
