You know what I love? Saving money, lots of money, on things I buy regularly. If you like to bake, heck, if you like to eat, consider a Sam’s Club membership to save on baking supplies and other foods.
I made you a list of the best 8 ingredients bakers should buy at Sam’s Club.
8 Baking Supplies to Score at Sam’s Club

Here’s something you might not know about me if you’re new here. I adore saving money. The only thing I love more than saving money is my family.
Well, and yoga. And, baking itself. But, it’s way up there in the top five for sure!
I like to bake cookies and pies and brownies and cheesecake and I don’t want to spend $$$$ on supplies.
Shopping at Sam’s Club is the answer. I’ve cut my baking budget at least in half by stocking up at the warehouse store.
Are you going to get rich by shopping at Sam’s Club? No, of course not. But every little bit saved makes a difference.
1. Toll House Morsels: $9.98 for 72 ounces
This is a crazy deal. A bag of semi-sweet chips costs me usually $2.99 if I’m at the right grocery store. If I’m at a pricier store that bag is $3.49 or $3.99.
A 72-ounce bag is equal to six 12-ounce bags. If I bought them at the grocery store I would spend $17.94.
Buying the big bag saves me $7.96 or like getting more than two bags free.
Obviously, if you have issues with self-control being around a giant bag of chocolate chips, don’t buy the big bag.
2. Member’s Mark Canola Spray: $4.98 for 34 ounces
Canola oil spray is another score at Sam’s Club. 8-ounce cans of spray are usually $2.99 or $3.49 at the grocery store.
But at Sam’s club, an extra $1 buys you an additional 26 ounces!
That’s right: two 17-ounce cans of canola oil spray for $4.49. If I bought the same amount in 8-ounce versions, I would be spending $11.96.
You can save over $7 by buying Member’s Mark Canola Oil All Purpose Cooking Spray.
3. Gold Medal Flour: $4.98 for 12 pounds
Flour is another Sam’s Club bargain to score. I didn’t capture the price tag in this photo but the chain was selling a 12-pound bag for $4.98. That’s less than .50 cents a pound.
4. Ghirardelli Bittersweet Chocolate Disks: 30 ounces for $7.98
You’ll pay $3.29 for a 10-ounce bag of bittersweet chocolate chips at Target. You’ll save nearly $2 by buying a big bag at Sam’s. Use them in chocolate chip cookie recipes.
5. Domino Granulated Sugar: $4.98 for 10 pounds
Sugar is another must-buy at Sam’s Club. You’ll pay $2.99 on average for a 4-pound bag of sugar at the grocery store. So you’re getting two more pounds and paying a dollar less by buying a big bag.
6. Hershey’s Cocoa Powder: 23 ounces for $7.18
Don’t leave Sam’s Club without a container of Hershey’s Cocoa. The Shaw’s Supermarket closest to my house has this priced at $7.49 for 16-ounces! You’re getting 7 ounces more and paying .31 cents less.
You’ll need cocoa for all sorts of cookie recipes, including Cocoa Raspberry Thumbprints.
7. Pure Vanilla Extract: $17.48 for 8 ounces
Vanilla extract is probably one of the very best things to buy at Sam’s Club. I priced 4-ounce bottles of McCormick Pure Vanilla Extract at Shaw’s today. The 4-ounce bottles were $19,99!
At Sam’s you get twice as much vanilla extract for $2.52 less!
Vanilla extract is an essential ingredient in many easy dessert recipes, as well as my Vanilla Almond Granola Recipe, which makes a good snack.
8. C&H Powdered Cane Sugar: $4.29 for 7 pounds
Powdered sugar is another baking staple for you to put in your Sam’s Club cart. You’ll usually pay $1.99 or $2.49 for a 16-ounce bag at the grocery store. You’re going to get more than twice as much at Sam’s.
Use powdered sugar for French toast or for my family’s favorite cookie recipe: Butterballs.
Right now you can get a gift card when you sign up for a Sam’s Club membership.
