Maintaining a Budget with BJ’s Wholesale Club


Recently, my husband and I committed to cutting our household costs and finding ways to save money. We decided it was time to get back on a budget. One of our biggest expenses is gas. My job requires a lot of driving. I mean a lot! We also have kids who participate in several extracurricular activities, and of course my husband needs to get to work, too.

This is why BJ’s Wholesale Club is an integral part of our budget plan. One of the biggest perks of BJ’s Wholesale Club is the fantastic savings they offer on gas. The first time I pulled in to fill up my tank, I couldn’t believe my eyes. The gas station across the street was charging $2.69, and the sign at BJ’s said $2.19. I had to double check just to make sure I had selected the right type of gas. That’s a savings of fifty cents per gallon, my friends. You can bet that I checked the price at every gas station from BJ’s to my house to see what others were charging. BJ’s gas prices were among the lowest around. We’ve now been able to hit our weekly gas budget thanks to BJ’s.
Are you wondering where else we’re saving money? The gas was a big one, but that’s not the only way to save at BJ’s. My husband and I are obsessed with the fact that you don’t have to buy in bulk. That’s major for us! We’re tired of throwing away food week after week. Instead of throwing out the excess, we are able to buy our regular use items in smaller sizes, and guess what, we didn’t throw anything away this week! Don’t get me wrong though, there are still items we have to buy in bulk (hello, baby wipes!), and we can easily pick those up at the same time. It’s so nice having a variety of choices when shopping, and we don’t have to go to multiple stores to get everything we need.

Also, did you know that BJ’s Wholesale Club is the only warehouse club that accepts manufacturers’ coupons? Yes, you heard that right. On top of that, members can add coupons to their membership card from the BJ’s app or online. They make it super convenient to save. Now you can clip those coupons with purpose! After watching a few women in front of us save a significant amount of money this way, we committed to taking the time to review the online and paper coupons ourselves.

BJ’s Wholesale Club helps our family stay on budget by offering fresh, quality products at amazing values. We couldn’t be happier, and I encourage you to visit one of BJ’s two Michigan clubs, located at:

    • The Madison Heights club is located at 29101 John R Road
    • The Taylor club is located at 15523 Eureka Road
