The price of dried beans

Yesterday my wife and I had to go to wal-mart and pick up a few things. For those of you that do not know, my town has only 2 grocery stores in it - walmart and a brookshire brothers.

1# bag of dried pinto beans - .58

2# bag of dried pinto beans - $1.58

The 2# pound bags were freshly stocked and I guess they reflect the most recent price changes.

The 1# bags had not been stocked in a few days / maybe a week - so I guess they reflect the old price.

By using the price of .58, a 2 pound bag should cost @$1.16, not $1.58. I expect the next price hike to drive a 1# bag of dried beans to @.70 - which is about a 20 - 30% increase.

If you have recently bought a 1# or 2# bag of dried beans, what was the brand name and price?

I picked up a bunch of 1 lb bags of navy beans for 86 cents a pop. They are the generic store brand. "Schnucks" it's a St. Louis, MO grocery store.
Well I went to Sam's club and Costco today. At Sam's club the dried pintos were $12.76 per 25 lb bag (that's .51 cents per lb).... DH.
I just got back from shopping and Walmart had the 1lb bags of pintos for .58 also. The best by date is earlier than the 2 lb bags. I bought a few of the 1 lb bags to go in the freezer.
They still had 25lb of rice for $7.88. I got a couple of them to go in the freezer also.
My shopping cart snooping indicated that people are buying more of what I call "stock cheap" items,....ie beans, rice, canned goods etc.
I bought a 25lb bag of pintos from a distributor here saturday for $13.90 I thought I did good

You paid .556 cents per pound, which is better then what I paid. I expect prices will be going up in the next couple of weeks. At that time you will look back and say you got a really good deal.
