I would say the cheapest way to go is to buy bulk raffia grass and dye it yourself.

How big is the blind that you're trying to conceal?  I've used those Ghillie bundles before and they seem to work pretty good.  Otherwise, I've also used the woven grass mats as well with good results.  I think it's Avery that makes the grass mats, but I can't remember for sure.

I go the really cheap route.  My wife planted some ornamental grasses around the place and the 3 bunches of it provide plenty to grass a 19' boat blind every year.  All it costs is a few bucks for bags of zip ties.  I zip tie it directly to the grass loops on my boat blind so I end up losing enough from wind, trailering, etc that I have to redo it every year.  

When I used to zip tie it to a 1/4" plastic mesh and roll it up, it would last several seasons even after being used in saltwater.  Seems to last as well or better than anything guys I know are buying.

I think the stuff is "miscanthus"
