Benefits of a Sam's Club Membership

 I've heard a lot of different opinions about buying in bulk. There are pros and cons to anything.
(This post contains affiliate links. If you make a purchase I will receive a small commission at no extra cost to you.)

If you can look past yearly membership fees Sam's club really has a lot to offer. Also depending on what plan you go with you can sign up for as little as $45 a year.

Buying in bulk can really save you money. That being said, if I have a coupon to match a sale else where and make that price cheaper, I'm all over it. The following is a list of supplies we normally buy at Sam's Club (unless there is a sale & coupon to make the price lower else where.)

  • diapers (we use cloth a lot at home, but on the go and at church it's easier for us to take disposables.) 
  • diaper wipes
  • diaper genie refills
  • pull ups (we have started buying smaller packs now that our middle child only wears them to bed and when we are away from home.)
  • sugar
  • flour
  • ground beef (without coupons other stores can't beat these prices. 
  • chicken breast
  • pork chops (I cut them in half because they are so thick and we get twice the amount.)
  • toilet paper
  • tide
  • bread
  • monster energy drinks
  • cooking oil
  • canned chicken
  • pancake mix
  • pop tarts (We use these on busy days when we have to rush early in the morning. We eat them for breakfast in the car, or sometimes as snacks on trips.)
  • cat food dry and canned
  • cat liter
  • Mr. Clean magic erasers
  • Clorox wipes
  • furniture polish
  • cascade
  • Gatorade
  • bottled water
  • printer ink
  • coffee creamer
  • trash bags
  • cereal
  • fruit (it's generally always fresher and lasts longer.)
  • We have even bought home school supplies (workbooks, etc.)
This list is just an example of some of the items we get (not every month) and please remember if I can combine a coupon & a sale for less I'm going to do that instead.
