I love Sam's Club! If you don't have Sam's in your area, you may have experienced a similar concept at places like Costco or BJ's. Sam's is owned by Walmart. You can get great deals on "bulk" items there. Some of my favorite things to stock up on are: meat (they have the best prices and it is good quality), chicken, cheese, eggs, and juice. My husband loves taking Monster drinks to work and we can get them for about half the price by purchasing them in bulk here. I always browse the aisles and sometimes find deals on other things like canned soup, vegetables, and chips. I really have to be careful on these items, though, because a lot of times you can get them cheaper in a regular store using coupons. You can't use coupons at Sam's. I also stock up on household items like trash bags, paper plates, and paper towels as well as dog food here. They have health and beauty items like shampoo, razors, deodorant, toothpaste, and vitamins, and we get all of those items here as well.
They have great prices on "bestseller" books as well as DVDs and CDs. They also have great deals on computer software programs. I love to browse the aisles in their media section because sometimes I will find a great deal for myself or my daughter. Today I found some very cute Disney puzzles and a Disney princess book with a mini CD player that I bought to put away for Christmas. I also got my dad some books for Father's Day. At Christmas time, they have several aisles with toys and I have found some really neat things here that I haven't seem anywhere else for very reasonable prices. They also have great deals on Christmas decorations during the holidays.
The cost of the membership is $40 a year, but it has been totally worth it for us!
