How Much Do Sandbags Cost?

A sandbag is a container made of Hessian cloth filled with either soil or sand.  A sandbag is used for different purposes such as flood control .  The amount of soil or sand inside the sack varies depending on the need.  Sandbags have been used to protect soldiers as they use it as temporary fortification since it can absorb some pressure from incoming hostile fire.  Sandbags can also be compact enough to be used to control a flood, preventing it from flowing.  Sandbags can also be attached to weights as a means of weight training.  The price for sandbags depends on the amount of soil or sand in the sack.

    Come on… an average 50-lb sand bag (filled) costs $3-$5. Where do you get off telling people it’s $50?!? That’s just insane.

    Was it worth it? Yes
