If you’re stockpiling food for an emergency, the most affordable way to do it is to join a store like Sam’s Club or Costco and buy food in bulk. A membership costs around $50 a year, but you’ll save so much money that the membership will pay for itself several times over.
Granted, Sam’s Club doesn’t have as much variety as Walmart or your average grocery store, but they have everything you need to cook from scratch: flour, sugar, oatmeal, honey, seasonings, baking soda, vegetable oil, and so forth. With all the ingredients at Sam’s Club, you could cook or bake just about anything.
And I haven’t even mentioned all the non-food items they sell, everything from cleaning supplies to over-the-counter medications. In this article, we’ll look at the top 25 items to stock from Sam’s Club. Once you see the list, you’ll realize why every prepper should have a membership.
