There are just some things that are a necessity in life. And one of those things is grocery shopping at BJ’s Wholesale on Camp Creek Pkwy.

98-8572_DryEraseBundleGrp41Sure, I hit the local grocery stores for quick pick-up items, but when you have to feed five other people, (six including myself), then it’s essential that I shop in bulk to get the best savings. And that’s the same philosophy I use when it’s time to shop for Back to School deals for my four youngest kids. Bulk is best!

That’s why I was so glad to attend a BJ’s Back to School meet-and-greet in Woodstock along with other Atlanta Bloggers to find out more about what BJ’s has in store for us moms in search of the best back to school offers. I thought I knew all there is to know about BJ’s but I learned that there is always a way to SAVE MORE at this discount club! And if you aren’t a member of a discount club – no matter which one you choose – you should find one and sign up.

For one, when it comes to great coupons, BJ’s allows you to use not only the BJ’s in-store coupons (which are always located near the front entrance) BUT ALSO manufacturer coupons! And you can use a coupon for every bar code the product has. What do I mean? Well if you’ve shopped at BJ’s then you know that you could pick up let’s say three jars of Ragu sauce that are attached together that you would purchase for one low price. Well at BJ’s since each of those jars has a bar code, then you can apply a COUPON to each one! You could whittle that price right on down to pennies on the dollar!

While touring BJ’s we also had the pleasure of hearing from the General Manager of the Woodstock store, Glea Mabrey. And while Glea was telling us all about the exciting products they have on hand for Back to School and for students going back to college, we learned that BJ’s offer specialty products like a retro microwave and dorm-size fridge that would definitely make any students dorm-room stand out.


There are more than 7,000 different items, an organic line of products and top choice USDA meats. My kids go crazy over BJ’s specialty Butterscotch that’s in the bakery and if you haven’t tasted their cakes, your life is just not complete. Another point Glea noted is that you can get items cut down to size in the meat department. No worries about having to buy what’s displayed in the meat case, especially if the item is too big.

Bj’s is like a one-stop shop because they have just about everything you can think of electronics like TVs, cameras, camcorders, video games and even things you don’t think about like clothing, and coats! I know most times I forget that BJ’s offers great deals on clothes for the whole family. It’s not usually the place most of us think about but they’ve got so much more than food there. You can literally shop and get back to school supplies AND back to school clothes for your kids. BJs BTS10

I hope you go see for myself, and grab a no-risk membership And if you shop there and realize it’s not for you, BJ’s will give you your membership fee back. I love a good, honest business that puts the customer first! I LOVE Bj’s! Check it out and tell me what you think!

Disclosure: Thank you to BJ’s for sponsoring the Back to School tour and for gifting me with a Bjs giftcard and other products. My opinions on my BJ’s experience are solely my own.
