Well, I’m looking to beef up my attic insulation by adding to it. What’s the cheapest place for insulation? The big box stores are fine but is there some place that beats them? Unfortunately I can’t buy in bulk. Looking for that uncommon retailer that somehow beats them.

Look at FB or Craigslist to see if anyone has extra to get rid of.

Noted the thread is a month old but I will post what I prepared in Word.
Before you buy that insulation you should discuss air sealing and total insulation needed. Going from 2' of insulation to 3' saves very little. Going from 3" to 3' can save a ton, but still need to air seal first.

Keep in mind that with insulation, neatness counts.

Old thread, possible fly by but for those who may follow.

A few years back when I wanted to add that amount, it was actually cheaper to get a local company to blown it in then it was to buy it at the BORG.
