How Much Do Sandbags Cost?

A sandbag is a container made of a polypropylene material, filled with either soil or sand.  It’s used for different purposes such as flood control, and 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 the incoming hostile fire.  They are also compact enough to be used to control a flood, preventing the area from overflowing.  Sandbags can also be attached to weights as a means of weight training.

    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.
