4 Ways BJ’s Makes Life Easier for Busy Moms with Babies

4 Ways BJ’s Makes Life Easier for Busy Moms with Babies

This content may contain affiliate links.


I’m a working mom with a 2-year-old in diapers and a second baby on the way. So not surprisingly, I’m constantly looking for ways to make my life easier.

That’s especially true when it comes to stocking up on essential baby products. The last thing I need to be dealing with is a desperate “We’re out of diapers!” situation or running all around town to find the brands I want at affordable prices.

And that’s where BJ’s Wholesale Club comes in.

BJ’s has a motto that comes as a wave of relief to busy moms like me: “You carry the baby, we’ll carry the rest.” In other words, we can focus on our main responsibility—to be the best moms we can be to our children—and rely on BJ’s to give us the products, prices, and convenience we need to make that happen.

I recently started an annual membership, courtesy of BJ’s, and here’s what I’ve already learned about how the store can make life easier for busy moms with babies.

 

4 Ways BJ’s Makes Life Easier for Busy Moms with Babies

 

1. Escape from the craziness of everyday life.

Let’s be real: Some days, when there’s baby food crusted in your hair and toys scattered all across your living room floor, you start to feel a little crazy.

Stepping into BJ’s felt like a mini retreat for me. It’s expansive—in a good way—and you can easily find everything you need without feeling overcrowded. When you just need to get away for a little bit, which all of us moms need to do from time to time, it’s the perfect place to go.

 

2. It’s a one-stop-shop for essential baby products.

When you’re short on time and energy, convenience is king. What mom wants to be running from store to store to find the baby items she needs? Certainly not this one!

That’s why I love that BJ’s carries the full range of products you need when you have a little one: diapers, wipes, formula if you’re not breastfeeding or if you need to supplement, sippy cups, and more.

I especially appreciate that BJ’s carries my preferred brand of diapers: Pampers Swaddlers Sensitive. We’ve found that they work the best for baby’s gentle skin, and since BJ’s carries them in sizes 2, 3, and 4, they also work great for my toddler who isn’t quite ready to potty train yet. No doubt we’ll be sticking with Pampers diapers and wipes when baby number two arrives very shortly!

 

3. Stocking up!

Babies go through a lot of diapers. One time I attempted to calculate exactly how many I had purchased throughout the first year of my son’s life, but quickly stopped myself when I realized just how high the final number would be!

Because of that sheer volume, it simply doesn’t make sense to purchase tiny packages over and over again. The same holds true for wipes and other baby products. The larger sizes available at BJ’s are perfect because you don’t have to go shopping over and over and over again—and, perhaps more importantly, you don’t have to worry about running out of what you need!

 

4. Great values on quality brands.

I want the best for my children, of course, but I also have our bank account to consider.

When it comes to finding the best quality but at affordable prices, I haven’t found anywhere that beats what BJ’s has to offer. The larger package sizes I mentioned earlier—coupled with coupons and other great savings—make it possible for my family to buy the top brands we prefer, like Pampers.

I like knowing that I can feel good about the products I’m buying for my baby while still sticking to our family’s budget.

Shopping at BJ’s has made me realize that while we moms can’t actually “have it all” in the traditional sense, we can get pretty darn close when it comes to buying our favorite baby products! I love that I can get a relaxing shopping experience that offers everything I need to one place, in large enough package sizes, and at a good value. It makes purchasing baby products one thing I don’t have to worry about.

    I got my first BJ’s membership after I had my first son. I saved thousands on diapers by shopping there for diapers and wipes.

    The one thing I do is menu plan each week. I sort of rotate about a month’s worth of recipes. It saves me time each night because I already know what I’m cooking and makes it feasible to shop more efficiently and frugally, too.

    I really need to get a membership to BJs again. I had one previously and it was helpful (time and budget wise) to be able to do a lot of one stop shopping and in bulk. You really can save depending on what you need by shopping larger quantities!

    One thing I do to make life easier when I’m busy is write down a time frame. I won’t work a second longer on something in that time frame, and will get up and move on to the next thing so I don’t get consumed in just one area.

    We prep lunches for the week on the weekend. The only thing we need to do in the morning is throw the individual portions of each item, and leftovers for the main dish in the lunch bag, and we are ready to go. Saves us about 15 minutes each morning.

    I’m painfully rigid about grocery shopping. I make my list so that I put items in order of going around the store (like list fruit and veg at the top and stop at the produce area first). When I unload my cart, I do it in the order I want things to be bagged, so when I get home, I can unpack them already semi-organized. I try not to ask anything extra of baggers or cashiers, just set myself up for an easier time!

    It’s also nice, as a mom, that BJ’s has a convenient parking space for “customers with small children.” I like that.

    We have had a BJ’s membership for 5 years, and I suppose it’s been valuable to us or we wouldn’t keep renewing! We switched from Sam’s Club because I like all the coupons BJ’s lets you use.

    There are certain staples I always buy there: Olive oil, rice, peanut butter. We use so much of just those 3 that I do think it’s saved me quite a bit.

    Okay, here’s something I do to make life easier: I keep a sharpie in my kitchen, and whenever I open anything to be stored in the fridge or pantry, I ALWAYS write the date I opened it right on the package. We’ve been doing this for about 3 years, and it’s been so helpful that my husband is totally on board and does it every time. Then we’re not like, “ummmm, is that the sauce we opened last week, or the week before?…” Or I might have something in the pantry that has an expiration date 3 years from now, but if I see it’s already been opened for many months, I might think, “okay, it’s time to use that up.” It’s probably been most helpful for milk/soymilk. I know by now that it’s only good for about 10 days, and I don’t have to guess how old it is anymore.

    To make my life easier, I pick out my son’s clothing for the week on Sunday nights and place each outfit into an organizer that is labeled with each day of the week. We never know what mornings are going to be like with a 3 1/2 year old, so having one less thing to worry about is key.

    I remember going to BJ’s as a kid. My parents loved it and now I know why – with five kids, they needed something to make their lives easier.
    We don’t have any very near us, but it’s enough for me to make the extra trip since I don’t feel the same way about its competitors.

    My boyfriend and I make sure we communicate everything- we have our calendars synced etc. Sounds like a small thing, but with 4 children and one on the way it’s so important to make sure we are on the same page…avoids extra trips to the store, missed appointments, etc.

    I like to get up extra early every morning so that not only do I get quiet time with my cup of coffee but I can get to work early – this means that I’ll always be on time even when the highways and side streets get backed up with traffic and accidents.
