Source for Sandbags (not sand, just bags)greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) Preparation Forum : One Thread
Anyone got a source for these? I can get the sand, but have yet to find a cheap supplier for bags. Anyone? Web resource or otherwise.

If you are in a rural area, look for feed mills in the phone book. Or for farmers. Feed bags are tough and the feed mills usually do not give you anything for them when you take them back. Used to be you got a nickel or so a bag. So we tend to just stack them in the granary and use them for whatever we can think of. I have never had a need to buy just the bags but they should be very cheap. Pam

I got my sand bags at a place that sold concrete, block, brick and stone. They cost 50 cents each. And someone told me that the fire departments are a good source sometimes, but I never checked that out.
Just for the record, I got my sand bags to dam up a small drain culvert that runs behind my house. The water would'nt be suitable for drinking, but it might come in handy for the occasional quick shower or bath.
Lots of luck with Y2K
