For the East coast, the Maptech chartbooks represent the best bang for the buck... Pretty easy to find outdated editions on eBay..
I have bought used MapTech Chartkits on Craigslist and eBay for $10-$25 a pop (vs. $130-150 new) and use them in conjunction with a handheld GPS with chart chip, cruising guides, and some up to date Heinz Va. and Md. chartkits. I haven't seem a whole lot of relevant changes, between the old charts and the new charts, for the way I navigate.

Works well if you pay attention and cruise conservatively.
