Let’s talk bulk shopping this week. Do you do it? Do you buy in bulk from Sams Club? We do! It is so much better and easier for us for certain things. You have to be smart when you go into the store and have control otherwise you will be like a little kid in a candy store!
I try to go to Sams Club on my own, without my husband, otherwise he can spend a lot of money! No but seriously Sams club is our savior. We go there bi-weekly for diapers, wipes, and formula. That alone is worth it. You can get more diapers and formula than any other supermarket, we did the comparison. You might find other ways and use coupons, it is just our preference. Lately the baby hasn’t been taking as many bottles as he used to so that cuts back on formula costs (it’s expensive y’all).
Besides for baby stuff we find that cleaning and pantry stuff is perfect to get there. So we buy a 24 pack of paper towel that is mega large and we seriously can wait 3-4 months before buying more! It is worth it for us. Same for toilet paper! These simple things save us from running to the grocery store, or getting them weekly!
We also get Clorox, Lysol, Pledge, and Air Fresheners. All of these items last about 4 months plus. I think we bought the three pack of Clorox wipes back in September and we are JUST now getting through the last of it. It seriously makes it so much easier. I make a list of the things that we need to pick up every three months at Sams, then bi weekly at Sams. I will be sharing that list on our blog soon, so you can have it for your needs!
How do you save money? Do you bulk shop?

I usually go to Costco but since moving we only have SAMs Club here. I definitely need to try it because I love bulk buying!
Same here, we only have a Sams near by but we know how much we are saving so we have no problem with it!
We do bulk shop for certain items. We are members at BJ’s as well as Costco. I LOVE Costco Kirkland products. I find them to be quality every time. When our little guy was first born we bought all of our formula at BJ’s. We save beyond our membership fee many times over each year!
Us too, we love it. I need to try out BJS and Costco, but we don’t have one near by! I think it is a great way to save!
I need to join a bulk shopping store for sure. I’ve been putting it off but I think the savings would be well worth it!
I am always overwhelmed when I walk into those places and feel like I want to buy everything! I guess making lists and really looking into what would be a good deal or not is the way to go. I should give it another shot now that I have two kids that require me to go through massive amounts of cleaning products!
