Timing and patience

Just a matter of waiting for the sales and knowing where to look.

14mm goes for between $150 and $180 new (removed from kit) You'll pay more if you want the box though

Olympus recently had the latest 40-150mm R on sale for $99  They've also been offering $150 rebate per lens (if bought w OM-D)

Different lenses regularly go on sale, and sometimes a kit is so heavily discounted you can sell the body and the lens is nearly free. (or vise versa)

Of course this generally precludes walking into a camera store and picking up a lens on a whim if you want the best price.

And if the cash is really tight, it might pay to spend some time on the auction sites and buy/sell forums

(picked up an open box m.9-18mm for $400 when used copies were still going for near list, but it took a couple months of trolling eBay)
