Which whole sale store do you prefer and why?  Is one really better over the other or does it just depend on what you're looking for? I use to be a member of Sam's, but due to the fact that they

I have never heard of BJ's, and we don't have a Costco where I live, but in another near by city, we do have a Sam's Club, which I love to shop at. I have purchased a lot of cookbooks and dvd's there as well. So when I see dvd's of past shows I grew up watching, I can't walk away w/o purchasing them. I also purchase spices there, the chili powder and ground cinnamon are waaaay better than the ones you'd purchase at your local grocery stores; plus I buy my almond & vanilla extract there, cost-wise, their a great buy. Every time I go to Sams, I always pick up a 4 pack of their disenfectant wipes, they're cheaper than the brand name ones, and besides, the main ingredient in all of them is ammonia, so I figure why pay more for the brand name. One other item that is a great buy, is the bulbs of garlic. I don't think they've gone up in price since that last 2 times I purchased them. I go through a lot of garlic, and I divide and share some with my daughters. Hubby buys his vitamins, Ibuprofen, and Oral B electric toothbrush refrills at Sam's, plus we purchase ink cartridges for our printer there as well.

We had a Sam's Club membership when we first moved South.  However, as the years have passed, our kids and grands are coming quite as often so we didn't really need to continue our membership.  However, this Fall, Sam's offered a free visit without membership.  We bought over $300 worth of paper product, meats, baking supplies, canned goods,dog food and other "good" stuff.  Hope that next year they do the same thing.  If they do offer another free day,  we won't be buying so much, because five extra people will not be here for the holidays!  Not complaining, so good to have them come.
