Is It Cheaper To Buy Bagged Or Individual Potatoes At The Grocery Store?
Generally, a sack of potatoes will come out to be cheaper than individual ones by the pound, but you will spend more money on a larger quantity compared to a single potato.
For example, at Kroger, individual potatoes cost about 74 cents each and a five-pound bag is $3.99. To get the same amount of potatoes individually, it would cost $4.95.
Overall, it's generally a bit cheaper to buy your spuds in bulk. However, if buying in bulk provides more potatoes than you need, buy them individually to prevent food waste.
Of course, costs vary by seller and region, and there are always supermarket sales, so be sure to keep an eye on price tags at your go-to grocery store.
