Check your local Dollar store; I just happen to have a couple of those 
24 LED lamps in front of me at this very moment that cost $1.50 ea.
(modding and putting them under the kitchen cabinets).

Lots of neat stuff in Dollar stores; amazing that they can sell a solar 
powered/battery backed scientific calculator for $1.00 these days, esp.
considering shipping and several middlemen also making a profit...

Button cells 5/$1, $7 ea. at the Shack...
