Do you shop at a warehouse club? Sam's Club or Costco or somewhere else?
If so, what do you buy there?
Yes. I get paper products there, dog food, beverages, medicine, personal hygiene products. Prior to making my own cleaning products, I'd buy those there as well.
we occasionally go to sam's, hubby has a card through work -he's manages a small restaurant. we'll get fruits, veggies, snacks for school lunches, food for b-day parties. don't do much frozen or refrigerated foods though since we live in an apartment & has a small fridge. when my daughter was in diapers we'd get those there.
Nope, the closest one is more than an hour away. We used to belong to Sam's club but didn't see huge savings the few times we went.
There's not one nearby and we used to have a membership but since hubby quit that job and they took it out of his check, we don't have one anymore. Once in a while when we went shopping in the town that has one, we would stop buy. We buy meat and toilet paper and whatever else we thought we needed.

We have BJ's Wholesale here, and I love it. I've been a Member since the one by us opened--has to be about 15 years or so.
I buy anything you can get at the Market, but there is much more of the stuff at a better value. A Gallon of Milk is only $2.89 there, whereas in the Market it's something crazy like $4.60. Meats are also awesome. Roasts run about $10-$11 and they're huge.
We go to Costco for things like cheese, tortillas and dog food. And books. Love the selection of books. We used to get our eggs there, but now have a flock of laying hens, so no more buying eggs.
I am really picky about things like chicken and milk, so I refuse to buy them at Costco. In fact, I won't buy any commercially produced meat. It's really horrible for you and for the environment. We have a farmer grow us chickens and go to harvest them with a group of like minded people 2-4 times a year. And we have a relationship with a rancher to do the same with lamb and beef. All pastured raised and organic. No hormones or antibiotics. And their milk is really low on the list of quality brands.
OK. Off my soap box for the moment. Have a great weekend!
We go to Costco. I get paper goods, their brand of Lactaid, frozen food, milk if we need it, and food we use a lot of- Gogurt, peanut butter, chocolate syrup, bbq sauce, juice boxes, snacks. And gas- they are usually at least 3 cents cheaper than anywhere else, and is usually a day behind the other stations at raising their price.
We go to Costco. I get our meats, seafood, milk, some frozen food, beverages, cleaning products and detergent.
