Bananas, cheese, salad (we can get a huge tub of organic spring mix cheaper than a small bag of non-organic at the grocery store), fruit, orange juice, milk, butter, eggs, and broth. We don't eat a ton of canned goods, but canned beans and canned tomatoes are a good deal there too. Our biggest saver is gas. We probably save enough $$ on gas at Costco to pay for our membership each year.

Man, this makes me want to go to Costco! Our Sam's membership is set to expire next month and we have no plans to renew it, and I hope to convince DH to go over to Costco instead. I think the contact lenses might be the selling point!

cheese of all kinds, peanut butter, olive oil, canned crab, nutella, sprouted grain bread. we decided it's not really worth it anymore, but will go with relatives a couple times a year.

Amy, sorry for the long wait on a reply, I haven't been back in awhile.

Anyway, I go to the Oakbrook one. I agree the beer isn't that great of a deal. I don't usually buy the wine either (but would if I were entertaining). I have membership to a local wine shop and receive 2 bottles a month. I buy cheaper wine at Trader Joe's (not $2 chuck) or sometimes even a few box wines. I think they are underrated.

BUT, the price on Sky Vodka & Dewars can't be beat! Check it out!


p.s. It is nice to see someone from the neigborhood. From your posts, I don't think you live that far from me.
