See for yourself if you think using coupons is worth the savings and time?

Let’s Wrap it Up:
BJ’s won three out of the five with one being a tie. It’s safe to say that BJ’s has a better price on many of these items than Aldi AND the fact that BJ’s takes manufacturer coupons and offers their own coupons on BJ’s items frequently has me doing a one-stop shop at BJ’s.
