*Thank you BJ’s Wholesale Club for sponsoring this post. Regardless, all thoughts and opinions are my own and I only recommend products I truly love.
I think everyone knows that kids are expensive. And as kids get older, they seem to only get more expensive. So add a few in there and your budget can easily be blown. As we are a normal family figuring out this 3 kids under the age of 5 thing we’ve had to learn to budget in certain ways. And as homeowners, we keep having random expensive house fixes come up. Because of all of this Tom and I sat down the other night and had a long, hard look at our budget and making sure that everything is in line (this is what being married to an accountant is like).
We essentially looked at where we could add in some money – like selling off a lot of our baby stuff – and where we could save money – like cutting back on the electricity and water we use. And then we talked about how we can save more on our grocery and household goods and decided to focus on saving big by primarily shopping for these things at BJ’s Wholesale Club.
Seriously – everything we need we can get for a reduced price at BJ’s. There are groceries, household items, clothes, books, toys, furniture, Tom even got golf shorts our last trip. And of course we always fill up our cars with gas when we go because it’s the cheapest gas around. You can shop online or in club, and membership is a great deal right now if you use my link. It’s usually $55 but with this link you can get a membership for only $25.
Other great perks of a BJ’s Wholesale Club membership are being able to shop online and pick up in club, exclusive BJ’s coupons, and travel services. There are so many awesome opportunities available to BJ’s Wholesale Club members and you’ll probably save more than the $25 it costs for a membership on your first trip alone.
So why not find ways to worry less about money and spend more time enjoying those sweet kiddos? None of the steps we are taking in our budgeting journey are drastic but they are paying off big! Make sure you check to see if there is a BJ’s Wholesale Club close to you or visit them online at BJs.com!
