While Radio Shack prices for discrete components and stuff are high,
they do have bundle variety packs of resistors and LEDs that aren't
nearly as terrible as the individual ones.  Radio Shack is everywhere
and they're open late and on weekends, so I've been there for little
projects several times lately.  But if you can plan for your purchase,
there are definitely better places.
