I get five packs for a dollar at Fred's Discount Stores. They have a large selection and I have had no complaints about germination or product.
Some people sell things at higher prices than other people....

Not on your life! They can keep them. I've been buying seeds at Lowe's and Home Depot. No complaints.

It depends on how many seeds there are in the package. As an example, tomato packs usually have 30 seeds. That is 17 a plant if I get 100% germination and 34 a plant if I only get 50% germination. When I can average 10 pounds per plant in a decent year I consider it a great bargain.
20 plants (not 100% germination) times 10 pounds = 200 pounds of tomatoes. $5 per package / 200 pounds = $.025 per pound.
Sometimes the cheapest seeds are not a great bargain.
Or you can start getting seeds for open pollinated plants and save your own. You only have to buy them once.

Don't buy seeds from Walmart, they are junk. Out of a 25' row of peas 4 plants germinated. The amarillis bulb I got didn't ever bloom, just had leaves. Nan in DE
