In some of my past posts, I know I have raved about how much I love Sam's Club. Well, I am gonna do it again today. I don't know whether this is a good thing or a bad thing, but my whole family is addicted to Sam's.
Of course we don't let them eat every time we go, but it has to be one of the cheapest treats they get. We can spend less than $8 for 3 hot dogs, 2 slices of pizza, and 3 icees. That's pretty cheap. And the food is pretty good....can't believe I am saying that.
The bulk of our food and paper products last for a little more than a month from Sam's. Everything is super-sized - so it lasts a good while for my family of 5. On average, a regular grocery store trip would cost about $350 every 2 weeks. I can spend $700 1 time at Sam's for the month and get triple the amount. I wish I would have done this when my kids were in diapers! That is one of Clay's ONLY 'I told you so' moments (sorry Hunny). About 4 years ago, he said 'we need to go check out Sam's'...my response? I'm sure it all balances out to cost the same & the packaging just tricks you. Clay if you are reading this...you were right. There I said it.
Just a side thought - is it just me or does it seem like every time a bunch of kids get ready to eat - they look like termites on wood from a cartoon? That's what mine look like.
'Mommy I'm hungry...'
'May I have some milk?'
'I ate all my food..can I have a treat now?'
And like a flash - they are wiping their faces & hands...and have asked to be excused from the table.
And then just maybe...my food will still be edible. I can't remember the last time I had a hot meal all to myself. Why do I say 'to myself?' Well, if I get a chance to eat a hot meal - it's guaranteed that one of my children will ask to have some of my food. Oh well, I guess that's what date night is for. :)
I can tell most of you are making the most of your summer. We have been busy visiting with family and friends & we still have a lot of fun stuff coming up. So if you are wondering where I have been lately - just trying to make the most of summer break before school starts again. As a kid, the summer seemed so long & as an adult? Well, 3 months feels like 3 weeks!
I hope you all are having a good week!
