I'm just in the planning stages for my new tank, and have been reading a lot here, and have been happy to see items that I can use that are not spcifically made for aquarium use.
Pool filter sand for instance.
Also today I read that one person is using quilt batting for filter material.

What other items do you use that might be cheaper than aquarium specific products.

For instance, we have a relatively local place that sells rock and stone for landscape and construction. Their stuff is pennies not dollars per pound. A nursery would have a smaller selection, but still good prices.
