Sam’s can help the budget

8 million years ago, in my past life.. you couldn’t have convinced me that warehouse shopping was going to help my budget, in any way.

I simply could not buy into the massive “more is more” mindset.

I also find the over packaging of individual servings disturbing..

I KNOW that many people buy a lot of things, at Sam’s, that they don’t need. And they buy them in massive quantities. I see the cars being loaded.. I see the carts being pushed around.. I wait, in line, behind many families..

I choose to supplement my budget by shopping at Sam’s, though.

It is completely OKAY to spend under $100! *giggle*

Here are the things that I buy, regularly, at Sam’s:

  • Hydrogen Peroxide (2 – 32 oz bottles for $2)
  • Red Bell Peppers (usually 6 for under $7.  Lately, they are six packs of red/yellow/orange, though.)
  • Euro “Seedless” Cucumbers (3 pack for under $4)
  • Romaine Lettuce Hearts (6 ct for under $4)
  • Sweet Onions (5 pounds for $4.50)
  • Garlic (2 pounds just over $3, but “Made in China”)
  • Crushed Tomatoes (#10 can 102 ounces $2.26)
  • Tortillas (Flour, Fajita size 48 ct $2.82)
  • Breakstone Sour Cream ( 48 ounces $4)
  • Cream Cheese (6 ct 8 oz $6.88)
  • Ricotta Cheese
  • Co-Jack Cheese – 2 pounds $5.88
  • Mild Cheddar Cheese – 5 pounds $12.27
  • Organic 1/2 and 1/2
  • Organic Heavy Whipping Cream
  • Spices
  • Baking Flours and Sugars

I, also, occassionally buy Smoked Gouda Cheese and Brie Cheese at amazing prices. 

Hoagie Rolls, Cakes, and Cupcakes are inexpensive and yummy, too.  Birthday candles are free with your cake. (I make quick pizza’s with the Hoagie Rolls.)

I keep #10 cans of fruit in my food storage.  If I needed to take food to a large party or a potluck, I would consider #10 cans of already made pudding with home-made cream puffs.  Win/Win!

I’m amazed at how inexpensive baking chips (chocolate and peanut butter) are, also.  32 ounces of peanut butter chips were less than $3, tonight.

Even with all of our allergies, I can buy many staples, at Sam’s..

and it doesn’t take all day, when you skip many aisles full of stuff that you don’t really need…

(Prices may vary, in your area.  You can put your zip code in, on the website, and see what is available where you live.)
