with the cost everything going up i heard about a group of families getting together buying grocerys in bulk and getting equal shares... any ideas on this...and if there is overwhelming support for this maybe we should list our cities so other mom intrested can find you.

some families have done it and it worked.... ive been thinking about doing it for my family and my bf works as ups so we get a discount at samsclub i think... but every family puts in an equal amount of money and then lists are made and how each family group works it depends on what they descide

 My mom and I do this at Sam's Club.  Then we are splitting a cow w/ a friend.  This will be the 1st time we have done this so not sure how it will all go down.

my friend and I do this at BJ's. We sit down at the begining of each month, sort through the coupons, make a list of what we need, figure out the total and split it. If we buy anything additional in the store we just figure it into the total or ring that item out personally. Then we have to go home and divide it all out!

I dont think I could do this with a number of people but 2 or 3 families is a great idea! I know we save alot in coupons, bulk prices, less gas to and from the store and not as much impulse buying!!

 Never heard of this. I don't think I know enough people to do this.

 Sounds like a good idea in theory, but I'd be weary of making any transactions involving money with a group of people.
