This weekend only (August 6-8, 2010), you can try Sam’s Club out without having a membership.
I’m excited about this because we let our membership expire since we didn’t feel like we were saving money by having it. However, I’m going to jump at the opportunity to stock up on yeast — and possibly a few other baking supplies.
If you do quite a bit of baking and use yeast on a regular basis, you will save an arm and a leg by buying your yeast in bulk. Sam’s Club sells it for $6 per 2-lbs. last I checked and you can keep these in the freezer for at least two years. I just use the yeast straight out of the freezer when baking.
By the way, if you want to do a cost-comparison of Sam’s Club prices versus what you usually pay, they have all of their pries listed right on their website.
Thanks, The Gluten-Free Casein-Free Pantry!
