Do you shop at a warehouse store? We did have membership to Sam’s Club (in Utah) at one point, but then we moved (to California) and let the membership lapse. When we got to Virginia we decided to join a warehouse club again and Costco was closer. Now (back in California) Costco and Sam’s Club are across the street from one another but we still have our Costco membership and just go there.
I don’t always make a list before I go but I did this time to make sure I didn’t miss any essentials. We were stocking up on everything!
Our rolling cart was pretty full. The cashier asked if this was a once-a-month shopping. We have 5 children at home but we don’t go through these items that fast!! We said about every 3 or 4 months for some items. It just happened that we needed everything and we really stocked up this time!
toilet paper – LOVE LOVE the Kirkland brand
dish wash soap
I also had pillows and sheets on my list and was able to get them there.
And in our wanderings – because you must go up and down each aisle – what else did we pick up?
couple kid workbooks
juice – lots of juice – I don’t buy it that often but they had a great deal this time.
Aveeno lotion – my favorite
Costco bags – “Think Green” I love these bags! They are huge and really sturdy and not that weird fabric that some of the reusable grocery bags are made out of. Oh how I love these. I forgot about them already. I went grocery shopping and forgot them. Oops. I need to put them in the van so I don’t forget.
We don’t get cold items there because it takes us over an hour to get home and we had other shopping to do in the area. Actually because of the distance we hesitated about whether or not to renew our membership. The truth is, I love their toilet paper that much. So much I’m willing to drive to buy it. I buy a lot when we go.
In fact long ago I blogged about their toilet paper. Let me see if I can find it. I found it!! Don’t comment on it. That blog is long dead. But it gives you an idea of how much I love their toilet paper and probably how much I am a creature of habit.
Do you shop at a warehouse store? Which one? What are some of your favorite things to get there?
