Heads up: This weekend Samís club is having an open house, a good opportunity to stock up. (Vanity)
Sam's club ^ | April 12, 2011 | Vanity

Vanity head up: This weekend one of the Discount club stores is having an open house - a good opportunity to stock up without a paper trail.

“Spring Taste of Sam’s Club Open House is coming, 4/15-4/17, each day 11am-6pm. No non-Member upcharges during this event, so bring a friend! “

Sometimes it’s useful to buy in bulk, but typically you need to have a membership – this is one occasion when you can get those member prices, without letting everyone know you’re prepping.


TOPICS: Business/Economy; Chit/Chat; Food; Society
KEYWORDS: foodstorage; groceries; grocery; preparedness; prepper; preppers; prepping; preps; survival; teotwawki
I realize this may not warrant it’s own thread, but I thought it would be a good opportunity for people to stock up without a paper trail.

Paper trail?

What are you talking about?

Well at least you can stock up without having to join. I’m going to tell my sister. Thanks for the tip.

Paper Trail - pay cash - no debit or credit trail.

No paper trail to let “somebody” know you plan ahead and have stocks of food at home.

Zombies ain’t the only ones that may come knocking at your door. Could be the Food Police rounding up food stocks for the common good of all.

This past weekend, the GF and I were shopping at WallyWorld, each with separate buggies. When we caught up with each other at the register she couldn’t understand why I had a case of spam and three cases of Ramen noodles.

Food Police? Seriously? I’m thinking that sometime before the Nazi Left sends the “Grocery Storm-Troopers” to my door they’re coming for the gas, the guns, the kids, the cash, the precious metals. Just sayin...

Those doubting the need

would do well to begin listening to this video at about the

1:40 mark . . . maybe the 1:30 mark.

Chaplain Lindsey Williams.

The 2nd to the last segment, BTW, is on Muzzie vs other demographics . . . and how Europe is already irretrievably lost per all historic records.

If you are a member of one of these clubs, or if you have one of those “Shopper’s cards” with a grocery store, your purchases are stored.

A little anecdote to illustrate: Purchased a fresh food item from one of these places. A few months later got a letter from this place that it had been part of a recall.

The point is that they keep detailed records of what you have, and just in case the Schumer should hit the fan, and just like with ammo and other supplies, one would rather not have the government known just what I have.

It may sound a little extreme, but just to be on the safe side, it may not be a bad idea for you to stock up with some ‘Anonymity’.

I’ll bet you didn’t give them your right name and address.

Phone book - wonderful thing to have.

I ain’t saying but............

It may not be that ‘Formal’, it could just be an employee or someone who hacks into the system to find out who in the area has been “Hoarding” as the Left would say it.

Suffice it to say, it’s best to at least reduce that threat at get some of your supplies ‘Off the grid’, so to speak.

There’s more than a few Freepers who believe Preppers are crazy to store things as when or if SHTF the military will just come to your house take everything and either haul you off to a FEMA camp or just kill you.

Sorry, I don’t shop in stores that make me pay just to walk in the front door.

Ramen noodles.

Runnin’ out of space for these. An excellent Prepper staple, especially for the price.

Don’t forget the Dollar Stores...

Yes, I can understand that – I also resent the fact they check your cart on the way out Arrrrgghh.

I just wanted to let people know that this is a change to shop there without having to pay to get in the front door.

Of course, they’ll badger you to join, but just bring enough cash and tell them ‘No thank you’ and you’ll have the last laugh.

I admit to there being a paper trail on my food purchases, but there is none on anything else.

However, even my food purchase “stock ups” are spread out over a time period long enough to not warrant any “interest.”

That’s good. My intent in starting this thread was to let people know there is a way of getting some extra supplies, to give yourself a little boost.

I’d say that’s more than a “little extreme!”

It’s insanity.

It’s insanity.

Oh you mean like taxing the country into economic trouble and then doing the same thing over again, expecting a different result?

Are you one of the advocates of running the nation into a fiscal brick wall?

And people call those that want to stop that bit of insanity, “Extreme”.

My sincerest apologies everyone, I was under the impression that you did not have to provide any information to shop during the open house at Sam’ club.

Last year we did not have to do this, but now some stores may require it – they may ask you to get a ‘Guest card’ at the service desk where they will want to see you ID, #&^%$**&^%!

Again, sorry for the mix- up.
