I usually get Verbatim +R DL discs on sale for about $1.50, in packs of
10. Watch the ads from Office Depot, Office Max, Staples, and Best Buy.
If you want to buy them on line, you might check, and

Most people I know recommend sticking with Verbatim for DL discs. Note
that -R DL discs are very scarce, and more costly. You might want to
get the appropriate software to check the quality of your burns,
especially if you are using these for archiving. A bad burn might play
fine, for a little while...
