Whole Foods also usually has it (though I'm sure you'd overpay for it there).
Amazon has several options that you can get into for under $5/lb shipped.
It's more (and like I said, not worth it to me) but it's not that much more.
One pound is like 2 cups. That's not much for $5/pound. Just sayin'...
