15 Things You Should Never Buy at Sam’s Club

by Sheiresa Ngo

In her column for Credit.com, Consumer expert Trae Bodge also warns against overdoing it when it comes to baby products:

Try to avoid going overboard at the price club. Forty dollars for 180 diapers seems like a great deal until your baby grows out of them halfway through the lot. Wipes will eventually dry out, so you may also want to refrain from buying a box of 1,100 when potty training is right around the corner. With baby formula, remember that your baby will start eating solid foods soon enough, so all that formula could end up expiring before your baby drinks it all.
