As my New Year's resolution I've been reworking the family budget especially since we are adding to the family (and found out just how much day care is going to cost!). I have discovered that we're going to be a bit tight for about 6 months when day care starts and I still have 6 months left to pay on my school loans (woohoo less than a year left!!!). Not cancel the cable kinda tight, just being careful with what unplanned for stuff we buy. I thought it would be a fantastic idea to stock up on non-perishable expendables now while we've got "extra" money. I haven't been a member of a warehouse store before and was wondering if it might not be worth while since I'm going to purchase relatively large quantities of things like toilet paper, shampoo, even some food items. For those of you that use them, are they worth it? We have a couple of Sam's Clubs nearby and a Costco (not quite so close, but close enough), which do you like better?
