When I go grocery shopping for my family, I try my best to buy fresh healthy and if possible organic products as much as I can. Spending a fortune on grocery is never on my agenda. After all, I need something left for my fashion cravings, especially during a holiday season. This is when BJ’s Wholesale Club comes first to mind for shopping on a budget.
I recently went to BJ’s Wholesale in Brooklyn, NY and managed to find Mediterranean risotto with vegetables, jumbo pack of seasoning, 2lb of fresh yellow cherry tomatoes, 2lb of sliced Swiss cheese, multigrain organic bread, 36 snack packs of organic graham crackers, and a new Barbie doll for Isabelle – all for under $50!
If you are not a member of BJ’s Wholesale yet, make sure to at least try it out and see the prices yourself. I have a special FREE 3-month membership pass for you:
There is nothing fancy about the store, but you’ll surely find lots of quality groceries at reasonable prices. I was mostly looking for organic/non-GMO products that were cheaper at BJ’s than in other grocery stores. Look what I spotted:
12-pack organic Mac&Cheese for $13.49
2.5lb organic quinoa for $8.99
0.5lb organic pine nuts for $9.99
2lb oragnic peanut butter for $8.99
1lb organic multigrain bread for $2.99
2lb organic graham crackers for $13.49. Those are my 2-year-old’s favorite.
2lb fresh Muenster cheese for $6.99
Lots of frozen food choices.
Some lovely Christmas wreaths.
BJ’s has great gift options for the whole family. I found cute Barbie dolls and Disney princesses for Isabelle for unbelievable prices. There were also toys for boys, jewelry, clothing, greeting cards, and electronics, including a stand with FitBit.
By the way, my local BJ’s in Brooklyn, NY has no plastic bags whatsoever. If you go there for the first time, make sure to bring some reusable bags or get ready to carry your purchases in boxes. This is a great initiative for New York where almost all stores double bag your purchases 🙁
Let me know what did you find at BJ’s 🙂
Thanks to BJ’s Wholesale for collaborating on this post! As always, all opinions are genuine and my own.
