Hi Dottie,
Just curious do you remember how big and how much?
Thanks for the tip.

V was 18 dry quarts for $10. and P was 2 cubic feet for $17.
Obviously, for commercial needs the bag gets bigger and the price gets proportionately lower but these are manageable in typical cars.
They did a buyout of a GOB garden supply place I read about. They had a few round mulch bins and a thing that looked like a Haveaheart trap for possum/small raccoon.
Those were unexpected. Lots of decent priced pots, better grade edging and lots of good brands specific plant foods.
Definitely worth a look through.

Oh, they did have smaller sized bags as well.

I found some in mathews - through craigslist - $15 per 4 cuft bags (big).
