Summer is a time for easy cooking, not having to think too hard about what you’re going to buy, make or eat, and creating a feeling of leisure — even if you still have to work. What better way to have enough of your favorites on hand than buying them in bulk from BJ’s Wholesale Club?
Here we’ve identified great deals on the following 10 items at BJ’s.
Bulk Turkey Meat, $6.49/lb
Turkey is often a lunchtime staple for many households. Fold it in with some bacon, lettuce and tomatoes for a twist on an iconic sandwich. Slap it together with some provolone and melt for an unforgettable hot sandwich, or just chop it up in a salad for lighter fare.
BJ’s sells their fresh turkey breast at $6.49/lb, which is cheaper than many regular grocery store prices.
Johnsonville Mild Italian Sausage, 12-pack, $11.49
Summer weather calls for breaking out the barbecue, or just pretending you’re eating barbecue style fare. What grilled meal is complete without a nice set of sausage?
