Batting Bag Deal

On the World's Longest Yd Sale (HWY 127) this year,
I grabbed some batting scraps.
Any idea what I paid?

Yd sale tip: take your own shopping bags.
In the future, I will take more pillowcases.
This pillowcase came off the pillow in the car.

There was a variety of low, high loft & cotton, polyester.
Have you guessed what I paid?

               When I first saw the box of scraps, I pulled out a couple of pieces and they were small, but just the right size for me to practice some free motion quilting which I'm trying to learn.  Turns out many pieces were large enough for baby quilts,and there was one piece of white cotton large enough for the backing of a baby quilt.
Now do you have any idea what I paid?  
Actually, that's a trick question because you never know
how much something will cost at a yard sale.
It all depends on how attached the seller is to the merchandise,
or how bad they want to get rid of it but get something for it.
               Another tip: This is the same pile as the picture before. I just happened to have a vacuum bag I used to store some of the batting.
How much?

Yes, Mr. G & I love yard sale-ing, because
it's like hunting for treasures.
