The 60cm FITA target is pretty cheap at around $1 for a paper version so I might go in and buy a dozen and eat the costs. 3rivers has a 10 pack of the targets for $9 so I am not sure where you are seeing the targets as being expensive unless you are looking at the plastic coated stock which you don't really need to use. They do last longer but with care the paper targets can last a few practises - depending on the archer.
Remember, you paid for the whole target, so make sure you use the whole target. Spread those arrows around.
Actually, we have one archer that can very accurate with his crossbow and he goes out and gets colour photocopies of the center of the target. It is 35 cents for a colour photocopy and when he shoots out the center sufficiently, he just lines up his photocopy with the rest of the target and tapes it down.

I must be getting different foam than the rest of you. I get 2# foam,
comes in a 4 1/2 ft x 9 ft sheet, 2 inches thick. I cut them in thirds
so I get three 3 ft x 4 1/2 ft single layer targets. We have 160#
crossbows shooting at them with no blow threws. The 4# foam only come
in 24" x 9'. I've got some but seldom use it. 6#, no way, the
crossbows barely penetrate it.
