Usually steel is way overpriced at a hardware store. Go to a welding shop or steel yard. You may be able to pick through a scrap pile for cheap or free.

make sure not to use them in a structural manner as i would have a hard time believing the chemical composition for stakes would be the same as used in a standard ASME spec.
