To save dialup, and still do things the debian way, fetch apt-proxy, set 
apt-proxy to fetch from the remote servers, and set apt-get to fetch 
from the local apt-proxy.

Assuming you have the disk space (shouldn't be that large, since it only 
downloads and proxies packages you request), it should save your
bandwidth.
