Not sure were else to put this post.
My tax return will be in my bank Wednesday. So I thought about going to Costco/Sam's to get a few things. Toilet paper,paper towels, laundry soap, and a few other things.
Is Sam's cheaper (heard it was)? Do you like one verses the other? What things do you like to buy in bulk?
Buying the membership is why ibdont shop there often.
Thank you ladies!!!

 Neither. I buy some items in bulk from Amazon.

I don't shop at either, but my parents get most of their produce from Costco (and it's really good!) Costco's product selection is quite rigorous, too.

I wouldn't ever shop at Sam's Club, because I do not shop at Walmart and do not wish to support them in any way.

We've had a membership w/ Sam's for a few years now.  Their bagged cheese gets mold in it about once every month or two and there's always at least one product (usually several) in their produce dept that's moldy.  So we're going to get a membership at Costco instead of renewing at Sam's.

We buy TP, paper towels, ground turkey, pork tenderloin, crackers (super crunchy anti-GMO ones), paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, cinnamon, frozen fish, butter, diapers, wipes, germ gel, naproxen, ibuprofen, hand soap, etc.  lots of different things; we basically shop there and pick up what we don't use as much of at Walmart and buy produce at Publix, b/c we're large family (like are-you-sure-you-know-what's-causing-it large).

1 mom liked this
I have memberships at both.

Costco: better generic brand (Kirkland)
More nutritious minded
Lots of clothing (not my style)
Bigger sizes/amounts that sams (but also costs more)

Sams: better clothing selection (I buy lots of workout clothes there)
Lots of popular brands
Slightly less expensive than costco
Excellent chicken salad (omg yumm)


I usually shop at Sams because it is close to my work/home. My SO is a costco man through and through.
