So, I just recently got an awesome deal on a Sam’s Club membership because I’ve been hearing how much $$ you can save by shopping with them. Now, I’ve done my research and we’ve made our first purchases there I’m here to give you the stats on what I saved and what was worth my membership cost. Because I don’t know about you, but my grocery bill is my highest bill and I’d really rather spend that elsewhere!
1. Toilet Paper (ok, this isn’t grocery but household). 24 rolls/$5 regular shopping trip, Sam’s 45 mega rolls equivalent to 150 rolls/$25 shipped. I saved around $5 for the same amount and saved myself the headache of hauling around large packages of toilet paper! I figure it saves roughly $30/year.
2. Maple Syrup. We currently were buying 4- 16 ounce bottles from Walmart a month for $8/bottle for a total of $32/month. Sam’s has 32 ounce bottles of Organic Maple Syrup for $10.50 so my total is $21/month (savings of $11/month or $132/year!)
3. Cheese. This one was costing us $4/pound from Aldi’s so when I found it at Sam’s for $3/pound I was excited! I average about 12 pounds of cheese per month so I saved $12*12months=$144 savings!
So right now we’re up to $306 savings per year on just 3 items! I definitely got back my $10 investment already 🙂
4. Blueberries (the frozen ones). My kids inhale frozen blueberries but at $2.70/pound they can get pricey. So, when I found them at Sam’s Club in 4 pound bags for $8 I was HAPPY! I buy 4 bags of the blueberries/month so that’s a savings of $11*12months=$132/year!
I’m sure there are way more things that I’ll be buying in bulk there, (this is my preliminary list) but just these 4 items alone will save me $438/year! That’s seriously enough to buy Christmas presents for the year or pay 1/2 year of vehicle insurance. WAY worth it for me!
So, how about you? Do you use Sam’s Club & make bulk purchases? Comment & let me know how you save your money on groceries & household items!
