Anyone who doesn’t shop in bulk on a weekly basis probably questions the expiration date on many products. I hear so many people say they don’t grab a cheap BJs membership ( I mean it’s only $15 for the year) because they won’t use items up before they go bad.
Well here my friends are five items that have a nice long expiration date and I can almost guarantee you can use these canned goods up before they expire.
These five items are found at all three of the wholesale clubs, BJs, Sam’s and Costco. I just like BJ’s the best.
Canned items from BJs make meal planning easier and also don’t break the budget. Planning all our meals was one of the steps we took to pay off all our debt. You can see my past menu plan Monday series here.
1.Del Monte Blue Lake French Style Green Beans, 8 pk./14.5 oz. – $6.99
The final price you pay is $5.49 or $0.68 a can.
If you have a manufacturer’s coupon for this item you could stack that as well or use when there isn’t a BJs coupon.
2.Goya Beans 8 pk. $5.99 ( Black, Chick Pea, and White Beans to choose from)
Plus Goya frequently has coupons on their website. BJ’s has their own store coupons for this item. Through 9/26 you can use this coupon $1.25/1 Goya Canned Beans BJs coupon (exp 09/26/18).
That makes each can $0.59 after coupon. Savingstar also has a 1% cashback offer on all Goya Products here.
3. Wellsley Farms Pink Salmon 6 ct. 6 oz. $13.99
I didn’t grow up with this stuff as my parents did. This is why I had my mom taste test this one. She was very impressed. Among her and the other sample ladies at BJs, they agreed the taste was spot on and you didn’t have to worry about any bones!
That’s always plush. The advantage is this is cheaper than buying fresh and since it is a BJs brand product there is a 100% money back guarantee.
Each can is only $2.33!
4. Wild Selections Solid White Tuna, 4 pk./5 oz. $9.99
This is a great protein to have on hand. My kids are big fans of the classic tuna melts. Grab some cheap hot dog buns from BJs ( 12 ct is $1.89!) and mix tuna with mayo and top it with cheese and there you have it. It’s an instant kid pleaser.
“Great right out of the can, Wild Selections solid white tuna is perfect for sandwiches, salads and more. Wild Selections tuna is caught using sustainable catching practices, is traceable and MSC-certified. Each can supports World Wildlife Fund conservation efforts. ”
5. Hunt’s Diced Tomatoes, 8 pk./14.5 oz. $6.99
Canned tomatoes are a must have in my pantry list. The regular price for these is an affordable option for home cooked meals, but if you can stack a coupon, what a deal.
“These Hunt’s 14.5 Oz. Diced Tomatoes are 100% natural and made with premium, vine-ripened tomatoes. The tomatoes are free of artificial ingredients and preservatives while delivering Vitamin C and Lycopene.”
