I have been looking for 50 lb pages of rice lately to see what the most cost effective type I could get.  Food City has a few decent options. A bag of Blue Ribbon runs about $10 for a 20 lb bag. They also have Mahatma rice for $13.59 for a 20 lb bag. I went to the Asian Market at Stone and Grant this afternoon at the recommendation of a friend last night and found they carried 50 lb bags of jasmine rice for about $30. I decided on buying  a bag of Three Ladies Brand.

When I returned home to fill the 6 gallon bucket, I realized that they don’t actually hold 50 lbs as I had anticipated. I was of the impression I’d get 50 lbs in each bucket because I had seen them listed that way at the site I purchased the buckets. Emergency Essentials is the least expensive place I have found online to purchase bulk food. For rice, that amounts to a little over $60/bucket with shipping. Buying locally amounts to about $40/bucket – and I get to pick the brands.

    I guess we needed to take into consideration the buckets themselves to have the 50 lbs add up!
