I am trying to do a bake-off. LOL I want to make a shopping list and can't figure out how many bags of flour and sugar to buy. I thought is I figured out how many cups of sugar and flour I needed I could convert that to how many bags to buy...

According to the Rec.Cooking.FAQ...
U.S. All-purpose flour has a density of 4.5 cups per pound.
50 pounds * 4.5 cups/pound = 225 cups
Granulated sugar has a densiy of 2.4 cups per pound.
