I'm so conflicted

Today, I sold a little piece of my soul and joined a wholesale club. BJ’s to be exact, since it’s the only one around. I then spent 90 minutes walking around going “Look they have St. Ives Apricot Scrub! In six packs!” and “Wow, look at the giant cans of olive oil! For $17!!” and “Is that really a ten pound bag of M&M’s?”

Our next purchase is going to have to be an extra freezer for the basement so I have somewhere to keep my giant bags of mini-quiches and jalapeno poppers. And of course some shelves for diapers and baby wipes, which is the real reason we joined.

I feel like I should just give in and buy a minivan and one of those soccer magnets. Or is the short haircut and mom jeans the next step?

    Keeping a well stocked pantry, candy dish, and supply closet does NOT have to equal a 1-way ticket to the land of the mini-van! Resist.

    30 Rock, anyone?

    My dad loves Sam’s Club, so whenever he visits, we end up in there. The one here has frozen Cheesecake Factory, so that was kind of nice. But I really don’t fit their demographic-I live alone. With two cats.

    Um, I got a Sam’s Club membership as a wedding present, back when we were living, just the two of us, in a ONE ROOM HOUSE. No minivan at all. Now, I have a Costco membership and I love it. It keeps us in salmon and tilapia and in dried chicken jerky for the pups. Not to mention, here, Costco sells LIQUOR!
