A couple times a year a local grocery store, Chucks, puts a 50 lb box of large russet potatoes on sale. Last November it was for $4 and this month they had a deal for $6. Chucks sources most of their produce from local growers; therefore, it is very fresh, so definitely a deal.
The potatoes are very large about 1 1/4 to 2 lbs a piece. For us they are a perfect size for cutting up into French Fries or making hash browns. Frozen fries in the store can cost $2 to 3 a pound and do not taste as good as fresh potatoes or even as good as when we freeze them. While cutting them it is important to soak them in water so they do not brown.
