A friend of mine quoted some wise person who once said: "Services can be rendered and Goods can be provided: Fast, High-Quality, and Cheap, but you can only pick two."
I don't think you'll be able to get anything easier than through CPM. Or faster, for that matter. For cheapest, you're looking at waiting a long time and doing a lot of cold-pming of leaders of various Item factions to make inquiries and negotiate for what you want. Even then, I'm not confident you'll get *that* much more of a discount off of what's listed on CPM if you're only going to buy a small amount of things.
I saved alot of money on stuff to start by putting in orders all over with factions or cheap out of the way traders, then taking on alot of delivery jobs and just picking up my stuff whenever I ended up close to it. But if you've got the money, just pay someone to go get it for you.
