Okay I'm sorry if this post seems stupid, but can someone please help me out. Can I find this kind of stuff at my local Borders? What are some good commercial brief/outline companies? Do they just sell briefs to one whole book or how does it work?

Nope you won't find them at Borders. You will find them at your local law school bookstore though. There's also barristerbooks.com or for used study aids look on half.com or ebay.
Commerical outlines are different from commercial briefs. Commercial outlines outline the main topics and rules of a subject, while commercial briefs will have briefs for all the cases in your casebook.  Your main option for commercial outlines are Gilbert or Emanuels.  For commerical briefs which are keyed to your specific case book there's High Court Case Summaries, Casenotes, or Legalines.

there was a sale on ebay for all the emanuels for 1L for 178.00.  dont know if it's still going on, but i think it was barristerbooks.com.  i personally have been using gilberts for some and emanuels for some.  i also like the gilbert e&e's as well as the outlines

Ebay is the best source. If its springtime and you know the classes you're taking in the following semester, buy the outlines then. It seems like that's when there's the greatest supply and lowest demand, hence better prices.
