I mainly go to the grocery store, and I like to occasionally go to Sam's Club.  If there was a Sam's Club closer to me, I would go more often.

I was spending so much at one time when shopping Sam's, plus the annual membership dues, I found I did better combining sales and coupons at grocery store.

I absolutely loved going to Costco, however for me I had to drive 1 hour each way to get there and pay a $15.00 ferry fee, plus the club dues.  So needless to say I would have to say grocery stores for me now!

I am thinking about joining Sams club, even tho we have to drive 114 miles one way. Already go to walmart 80 miles away. So not much dif. I would rather buy in bulk and freeze everything that would soon spoil. Freezers are great. Even at our 1 and only overpriced store when they have milk on sale will buy 4-6 gal and freeze it. Eggs and lettuce can't freeze them. I buy only what i have too at the grocery store.

We will try to buy items that we use a lot at warehouse stores cause generally you can find them cheaper.  I used to buy a lot of lemonade and the bottles are about $2.  Found a pack of three and together they were $4.

I do my shopping at the grocery store, as I would have to travel too far to get to a warehouse.

I buy gas and cheese from the warehouse club but most of my groceries I get at the grocery store.  There's only two people in my house so the bulk foods would be a waste.

I prefer shopping at Super Walmart over both grocery stores and warehouse clubs. I don't really like buying bulk items, which is how you save money at the warehouse clubs, plus you have to buy a membership card. There are some good deals at warehouse clubs like Sams Club, but would rather shop for food at the local grocery store, that have rewards cards or shop at Super Walmart.

I wish we had a warehouse store closer. I would shop there regularly.

I only go to a warehouse store once in a while ... being a household of 2 there are only certain things you can buy in bulk.

I do a lot of my shopping at Walmart ... I make my list first of what I need & what is on sale at the grocery stores and then
proceed to Walmart.  Sometimes Walmart is cheaper than the sale items at the regular grocery store.
