Do you shop at Sam’s Club? If not, this is the perfect place to save money! If you’re new to Sam’s Club, you are going to love finding these new and awesome ways to save money. First things first, you can’t take advantage of the full savings of Sam’s Club, without a membership. You’ll want to wait until the membership goes on sale or just bite the bullet and buy it. The savings will totally be worth buying the membership, I promise.
Take advantage of the samples
Sam’s Club has some of the best sample people around. Walking through the store, you can try a lot of things before you buy, which is great. Plus, it’s nice to have a little something in your stomach as you do some serious shopping. You haven’t tried samples, till you’ve tried the ones that Sam’s Club offers.
Buying in bulk is the bomb
The best part of Sam’s Club is buying in bulk. When you buy several items at once, you’re saving on the per item price. I try to only stick to buying items we will use like paper towel, toilet paper, and that sort of thing. It’s easy to drop a large amount of money there because you’re buying bulk items. I just try to remember that these items are meant to last several months. It’s not like I go to Sam’s Club every week.
Clearance item shopping is a must
Who shops anywhere without checking out the clearance section? The best thing about clearance shopping at Sam’s Club is that they have a lot of stuff they mark down on clearance. Tables, chairs, furniture anyone? If you go to Sam’s club often, make sure you check out the clearance section. You never know what you will find, which makes this part of trying to save money awesome.
Go with a friend
If you’re not ready to *commit* to a membership at Sam’s Club, then shopping with a friend is a good move for you. Most stores will allow you to enter the store with a friend who has a membership. Want to save more money? You can also split the final cost of shopping at Sam’s Club with your friend. It can be cheap to split a package of toilet paper.
Make a list and stick to it
Listen, if you don’t make a list, you risk spending more money than you want. Think of a list to keep you accountable. I like to stick to a budget as well! I only bring in the amount of cash that I want to spend, otherwise – things could get ugly.
Buy prescriptions at Sam’s Club
Did you know that Sam’s Club offers savings on prescriptions? There are some medications that cost you $0! How awesome is that? Some prescriptions cost more than the cost of the Sam’s Club membership.
Saving money at Sam’s Club is about sticking to what you need. Soon enough, you’ll know what to buy from Sam’s Club and how much of it. Do you have any tips for saving at Sam’s Club?
