I actually found bags of potting soil at a chain dollar store (Dollar Tree?) Recently! Not sure I would grow edibles in it, but was a great buy for my houseplants at that price.

Re: sources for cheap potting soil

walmart has potting soil $1.24 for 40lbs, we got 1/2 of that and then purchased their organic hummus, and horse manure for $1.50 for 40lb bag. were just starting a small garden in our backyard. But did replant some of the small tomato and strawberry plants we purchased at the farmers market almost two weeks ago in the soil and almost all the plants have doubled in size already.
