BJ’s Wholesale Club Holiday Shopping Challenge! #HolidayShopping

There’s a BJ’s Wholesale Club about 5 miles from our house that we frequent often. We became members years ago and have taken full advantage of the shopping deals and savings at BJ’s. As you can imagine, with a family of 7, it’s been an extra bonus for us throughout the years.  Quite honestly, you can get just about anything at BJ’s Wholesale Club for you and your family!

Since I’m a big fan, I was absolutely thrilled when BJ’s reached out to me to host on BJ’s Facebook Live an exciting and first-ever BJ’s Wholesale Club Holiday Shopping Challenge! img_5387If you saw the videos on Facebook already, you know that I had an absolute blast! BJ’s understands the added stress that can sometimes come with the holiday season, from holiday parties to finding the perfect gifts. Let’s face it, we all feel it at some point between now and the end of the year! That’s why BJ’s is committed to providing its members with affordable prices on everything you need for the holidays.

So what was the Holiday Shopping Challenge?


BJ’s put three bloggers – Brianne from Stroller in the City, Cindy from Living Rich and Ressa from Momma Lew – to the test to see who can create holiday experiences that truly WOWS friends and family. These awesome ladies (who I also happen to be friends with!) had the opportunity to showcase their creativity and the great variety of products BJ’s offers at affordable prices to get you through the holidays from start to finish. img_5378They had to compete in two rounds, so two challenges:

  1. Find items at BJ’s to create a Holiday-inspired tables cape;
  2. And shop the club to find the perfect gift for 5 unique personalities (foodie, busy mom, techie, perfect hostess and creative kid)

They would be judged on their creativity, and also receive bonus points for saving money and taking advantage of deals at BJ’s while shopping. Each blogger was given a total of $500 for both challenges on a gift card and had to absolutely use their funds wisely.


I’m excited to share with you – in order – the Facebook Lives throughout the CHALLENGES!! As you can easily see, this was the coolest thing to be part of to kick off the holidays!
