Oh how I love going to Sam's. It all begins with an $ .87 Pibb Extra. I love everything about Sam's. The samples, the ginourmous bulk items, the cement floors, the produce. Sigh. I love it. You would be so proud of me. Today we made our annual trip for our Youth & Family Christmas dinner.
I've been geering up for self-control for weeks because usually I get in there and go nuts. Or buy nuts in bulk or something like that.
Today I spent less than $20. Wanna know what I got? Mamaw and Aunt Linda discovered Sharp White Cheddar Cheese. Yes mam they did. Life changing. Truly. So I got that, bananas, and a 3 pack of Vanilla Soy Milk.
When Shane and I got married we went shopping to set up our new little kitchen. We went to Sam's because when you're poor and eat free samples for dinner that's where you go. Kidding. Kindof. Anyway, I needed flour. Sam's had a 20pound pack of flour so clearly that is what I bought. Lord have mercy, I did not even bake at the time. The flour took up one cabinet out of the 4 we had. It was really funny and comical after I realized what I had done.
Today I wrote down some prices on stuff. I'm always curious how prices compare to the things I buy most at the grocery store. If you are interested in comparing these prices to your grocery store you can print this post. Oh what a bunch of bargain shoppers we are:
