$3.50 / bag isn't so bad, I've noticed even smaller amounts make a difference, I usually dump 10-14 bags on my acre lot, spreader chute wide open and I'm done in about an hour, 400-600 pounds / acre is my latest formula but I know what you mean about the price, then you have to do this twice / year as well.

Another solution is to use less fertilizer throughout the season, I am in Virginia and we have a clay base over the entire state so the one product I found that helps is Clay Buster ($5.50 / bag). It has Calcium sulfate in it and it helps the grass grow almost like a fertilizer but doesn't affect the ph, remembering that lime has calcium carbonate in it so it's not the same thing, but between lime and clay buster I been having myself a ball. My favorite formula is 3 bags of each per 1/4 acre, customers seem to like it, the price isn't too bad and with less fertilizer it helps keep the ph from going too far off the chart (here I done gave up trying to even bring it out of the red lol).
