I made it to Sam's this past week. This month there was several things that I needed that I only get every other month or every 3 months so grand total was a bit higher than what I have had in previous months.

  • Country Crock Margarine 5lbs $4.42
TOTAL: $229.90

As a side note, I am always looking at Sam's prices on their fresh meat so that I can compare getting the meat in bulk vs. getting it from the grocery stores on sale. I found something VERY interesting in regards to Sam's selection of whole chickens!!  They carry whole chickens in a 2 pack and each pack averages around 11lbs of chicken. What is soooo interesting about these chickens is that the price per pound is only 78¢!!  Yes! You are reading that correctly--78¢ per pound!!  I just got a ONE whole chicken at the grocery store on sale for 89¢ per pound!  If I had known, I would have not bothered getting it at the grocery store. Every once in a while I like to get a whole chicken to put in my crockpot for a making up a quick meal of roasted chicken, rice & gravy and a veggie.  So this will be something that I keep in mind for the next time I go to Sam's!

I have never done Sams Club..thought about it tho. The closest one here is like 50 miles away (or more, not sure) so I am kinda scared to go and it end up not being worth it.

I love Sams. I'm saving on gas now, too. It's a great store for bulk shopping.

Did you see my funny post? It still cracks me up!

Thanks for posting this. I don't belong to any food club, but I'm second guessing that.

We had Meijer price match Turbo Tax Deluxe for 49.99 with the Best
Buy ad, then used Meijer credit card to get and extra 15% off (on Monday). Today they have a 15% off coupon for general merchandise in the Saturday Super Saver ad--this would also work. Makes it 42.49 + tax
