Although I have been a warehouse shopper for years, today was the first time that I found myself in a Sam’s Club. When Acorn Influence offered me a gift card and sent me on a treasure hunt around the store for baby supplies, I jumped at the chance to check out a new place to buy in bulk for my three little guys.
Why did you all not tell me about Sam’s Club sooner? I am totally hooked.
My treasure hunt had me looking for #Sam’sClubBaby #finds, items that would make shopping for baby both efficient and frugal. My first stop was a section dedicated entirely to baby stuff. Can I tell you how much I appreciated not having to hunt and peck all through the store for these staples? We loaded up on a huge pack of Pampers Swaddlers, enough Pampers Sensitive Wipes to last us until November, and the biggest container of Dreft laundry detergent that I have ever seen.
My middle guy was determined to help us load the Dreft into the shopping cart – it was half the size of him, but he did it!
Our next task was to find some Bounty paper towels. We make a LOT of messes in our house, so I was excited to see this product on our list. Middle went CRAZY when he saw that Sam’s Club carried Bounty paper towels with Minions on it. We bought them, of course. If Minions will motivate him to help clean up, we’ll try it.
We picked up some other items, too. We found a baby book about Pennsylvania (our hometown), some fresh food for a barbecue this weekend, and some snacks for school lunches.
When we got home, the baby stacked the boxes and climbed atop. (He points and claps at the “baby” on the boxes. He knows these boxes are “his”!)
Then the middle guy decided he wanted to clean the table with the new Bounty Minion paper towels.
Finally, the two boys sat down to read the new Good Night Pennsylvania book that we picked up in the Sam’s Club book section. They loved learning about what makes their state special!
