Sams Club is a great place to shop, if you know what to shop for. It is known for great prices on bulk amounts of items, but if you aren't careful, you end up spending more than you would on these items at the grocery store. I've found that the "2-packs" of ketchup, mayo, etc are actually similarly priced to grocery stores as are the large packages of toilet paper and paper towels. If you hit a sale on these at the supermarket, you'll save a lot more than if you buy them at Sams. On the other hand, the huge bottle of condiments, electronics, jewelry, books and furniture are typically great buys here. If you happen to be able to buy a display model of furniture, you will really save a bundle. Besides, shopping at Sams is so fun because you get samples at the end of every aisle!
