How much do you pay for a 5 lb bag of sugar?

I recently had a chance to go to a local Amish co-op and found a 4.8 pound bag of granulated sugar for $2.79... I GRABBED it. It's been a while since I've gotten sugar at say, Walmart...but I figured it was still a pretty darn good price.

So, how much do you pay for a 5 lb bag of sugar in your area? From what I understand it varies a lot state to state and even store to store.

Is that the regular size? We got our last bag at Aldi's for $2.29.

Yep. That's the average size you get in the stores. I wish we had Aldi's around here. They sound so cheap!

Moser's, a local chain grocery, had 5 lb. bags on sale a couple weeks ago for $1.49 (limit 2). I made 3 trips.

Sorry mama...we are members of a local food co-op and we buy tamarind sugar or raw sugar so I have no idea what is a good price for white sugar. (I made SO and the fam give up plain white sugar.)

Somewhere between 1.00 and 2.50 depending on whether I can get it on sale/ with coupon or not.

heads up...I found C&H 4lb bags of sugar on clearance at Target for .44 cents!! That's 85% off the usual price. This was in Central Indiana.

Last night at Walmart 5lb bags were $2.45 - the usual around here though is $2-$3 for a 4lb bag. WM is the only store that has 5lbs in the store brand for us. That was in S. Tennessee.
