I'm fortunately the my LQSs carry a decent selection of wide fabric. I always sort through the bin, find a bolt that only has a few yards remaining, and get the 20% end of bolt discount on it.
For those of you counting pennies like I am, the fabric is more than twice as wide as a standard bolt...and it's not double the price. If you can get the EOB discount, you'll end up paying a dollar or two more per yard than you do for a regular cut.
Just thought I'd mention it for those who hadn't thought about it.
