Sadly "cheap" and "local" rarely go together these days.  I don't know where you live, but I guess all you can do is visit all the local electronics and computer stores and see if you can get a good deal.

If you change your mind and decide to get one online, www.dealextreme.com is the place to go!

If you don't want to buy online,  you can order from catalogs or by phone. Or you can shop on line to find a good price from someplace that has catalog or phone sales, then place the order that way.

Or you can go price adapters at your local PC stores. The Instructables community covers a large part of the world. We don't know where you live, we don't know what's on sale, we don't know which stores are particularly good or bad in your area, so we can't advise you on local shopping.

Note too that "the cheapest place" changes on a minute-by-minute basis.  Don't get hung up on finding the absolute cheapest; just find one that's cheap enough -- and then promise yourself you won't look at prices for the next two months because something better and/or cheaper will appear on the market the day after you place the order.

You don't provide enough information for us to give you specific information, but, if you live in the U.S. you can go on-line and check these retailers for prices and then go to the local outlet to pick one up:

Best Buy
Walmart
Target
Fry's Electronics
Crutchfield
Microcenter
