Office Chairs.

While office chairs can cost upward of $1,000 -- and even earn a place in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art -- we found several options that will keep you comfortable for less than $150.

All the top cheap office chairs provide lumbar support, 360-degree swivel, and a five-point base to keep them from tipping. The seats have rounded, "waterfall" edges for better leg circulation and the height and tilt are adjustable. Our pick for best cheap office chair also comes with padded, adjustable armrests. Our cheap office chairs buying guide tells you what else to look for, as well as how to find the proper fit.

This week we were out shopping for bargains on plus-sized clothing and healthy foods.

Finding clothes that look great is a challenge on any budget, and if you're shopping for someone who wears plus-sized clothes or shoes then the challenge is even bigger. We recommend the classic Big and Tall Mart for men's plus-sized clothing and found two bargain choices for plus-sized women's clothing. Lane Bryant has its own go-to place for cheap plus-sized women's clothing: you can get a tunic for $10 and a casual shirt for only $3 at Catherines. We also found several choices for larger or wider shoe sizes, which you can read about in our cheap plus-sized clothing blog post.

We also researched farmer's markets this week, asking, are farmers' markets cheaper? It turns out it's a little more complicated than yes or no, so we present some information you'll definitely want to know. For instance, the organic lettuce found at a farmers' market for $4 rang in at over $12 at a grocery store, but some staples like eggs and potatoes are cheaper in a grocery store.
