I was afraid this day would never come! If you’ve been following my blog or social media pages, then you know that last summer in July we said goodbye to Louisiana, to our 3 year home, and to Air Force life and moved back to my husband’s home state of Utah.

We have been living in my in-law’s basement since then. Finding and purchasing a house has been a roller-coaster, but today we finally move into our new home!

After 5+ months of living in someone else’s house, we have a lot of stocking up to do! Toilet paper, paper towels, laundry detergent, food, cleaning supplies. Those are some of the expenses that you don’t always think about when you’re hiring someone to do a long distance move.

Wrapping up our house purchase, moving, driving 35 hours round trip to my brother’s wedding are just a few of the many things that have been like an avalanche of stress in my life this past week. I haven’t had time for even half of the things on my to-do list. Thankfully, Sam’s Club has made it easier for busy families to stock up on everyday essentials while saving money. With Sam’s Club Everyday Essential Savings and (free) Club Pick-up you save both money and time.

Sam's Club in Club Pick-up

Simply order the items you need online and select “Pick-up in Club” and then swing buy the store to pick up your order. Ensure that you never run out of your everyday essentials and your home will be a “full home, happy home”.

Sam's Club Club Pick up

When I got to Sam’s Club to pick up my order, I checked in at the Club Pick-up kiosk. (If you have to wait more than a couple minutes, I recommend talking to someone at the customer service counter. My Sam’s Club didn’t quite have the Club Pick-up process down.) I found out my order was ready and waiting for me at a pick up area behind the Sam’s Club eatery.

Members who take advantage of the Everyday Essentials items will save up to $97! That’s a nice chunk of cash. I picked up a few everyday essential items to stock up our new house. I needed to get a jump start on all the cleaning before the movers brought all the boxes in so I picked up a box of Swiffer Dusters refills.

And you can never have too much laundry detergent on hand. (No, really, I’m serious. I’m one of those people who has a variety of laundry detergents. I use different detergents for different types of laundry loads.)

Tide Pods from Sam's Club

With the money you save you can give yourself a little more wiggle room for Christmas shopping. We are “house poor” right now so Christmas is going to be small. Even so, there is a certain gift my boys have been asking for the last couple years… And Sam’s Club had one!!! And it was $37 off!!!

Seriously, my boys are going to be so excited! Right now it is hiding in my husband’s trunk. With everything still in boxes, there is no where to hide gifts. LOL!

  11. Debra Guillen says
    I love Febreze products and would definitely stock up.
  12. As someone who never seems to find the time or money for me purchases, 97 dollars would be big. I'd probably treat myself to a pamper mommy day. Get my nails and hair done (alone without an infant, a toddler and a preschooler yanking at my pant legs that they're bored and want to go).
  13. I would buy paper products. Like toilet paper, paper towels, etc. We use a lot of paper towels. I would love to buy a bunch and stock up...they are essentials for my family.
  14. If I were able to save $97 and could spend it on myself I would get myself a new, quality purse.
