I buy my coconut oil from Tropical Traditions - great quality and great sales. Last time I bought a gallon (don't worry, it keeps) for $42, including shipping. Not bad, since the pint jars I buy at my lcoal store are about $8. Once I have more storage space, I'll buy more of my coconut flakes, flour, etc from them.
I make my own nutbutters when I find the nuts at a good price. Otherwise, I buy almond butter at Costco for $7-$8 for a big jar.
For meat - I buy from a local farmer that does meat CSAs. Look on localharvest.org and search around. You may find you have one near you and didn't even know it. Another idea - check at your local butcher/meat market. The one near me will allow me to purchase a 1/4 or 1/2 cow from one of their farmers, and I can specify grass-fed.
If you live in the country, sometimes you just have to pay attention when you're driving around. I can think of 4 different houses I pass weekly that sell eggs. If you're not in the country, try your farmer's markets. Or again, localharvest.org. You really can find a lot of local providers on that site.
