Shopping Sam's Club

 Hi neighbors!

The nearest Sam's Club is about 1 hour away, so we often plan a once a month trip to pick up everything on our list.  We shop Sam's for groceries, paper supplies, bottled water (our water quality here is bad, so we go through a lot of water), and other monthly needed supplies.  We also shop Sam's for those other not monthly needed items.  We have been Sam's members for many years and have purchased several computers, a sound system, movie projector (my husband used this in the ministry), blank CD's, printers and such.

I am one of those people who seldom pay full price for anything.  I will usually wait for an item to go on sale or be marked down at a deep discount before making a purchase.  For example we saw a specific couch set when they first put them on display.  My husband commented that he thought it was really nice and might work in our living room.  We had no thought of purchasing at the original price, so we took measurements to make sure it would fit, and then put a pin in the idea for a few months.  Wonder of wonders, it was on clearance when we did our monthly shopping one month, for less than half price.  They even had one left in box.  Yes, it now sits in our living room.

Slickdeals is another good way to save and find Sam's Club coupons and deals as well as other stores and businesses.  They even have a way to save on your online purchases.  You can download their app and find deals and coupon codes. 

My husband likes to shop their clothing.  He has found so many good buys there.  He purchased three pairs of one style of pants because they were so comfortable.  He is constantly looking for gift ideas for the family as well. He has a place in his study where he keeps items he purchases ahead of time.  He used to hide them in odd places, and then could not find them when he needed them! So, now he has a specific place.


Many of our baking supplies for the Holidays come from Sam's, Almond Flour, Chocolate Chips, Vanilla, and all the other bulk supplies.  Having large amounts on hand is helpful because we do so much baking and I hate to have to run out for something because we ran out.   M started leaving a basket out front with different baked treats for our delivery men.

So take it from me, Sam's Club is a place to get great buys and using Slickdeals only makes getting the good deals even sweeter!

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

10 Things You Need To Do Before Moving Abroad

From There is nothing more fulfilling than travelling the world and visiting new and exciting places. If you’re a fan of travel , then you might have thought about moving abroad at some point.
