I am trying to figure out if it is cheaper to buy topsoil by the bag (one 40lbs bag for $1.66) or having it delivered for $60 for 4 cubic yards.

Thanks,
Claudia

Claudia,

To make the decision you need to be able to compare the weight of the
bag of top soil to the volume in cubic yards. Does the bag of top
soil give you a volume measurement? It would probably be in cubic feet.
