Any ideas where I can purchase just a small amount of Sand, like the size of a bag of a pound of sugar?

Thank you for the replies.
Both excellent ideas!

I hadn't started checking around yet because my mind was drawing a blank.
I don't know why I didn't think of "craft store".

I assumed a place like Home Depot or Lowe's would probably sell it in larger size bags which would be hard to lift and also I would have more than what I need, but maybe not.

Yes, most likely Hobby Lobby would have it!

Coming from Culebra there's a place on Potranco Rd just past Military Drive that sells gravel, decorative rocks, etc., and has piles of different things in back. They probably have sand as well. Take your own container.

the cheapest solution will be a landscaping store like keller materials. that's where i get all the sand (fine sugar-grade) for my saltwater fish tanks. its around 10 bucks for 100 pounds. i know they sell it in smaller bags for cheaper and have a wide variety of colours.
