Holiday Entertaining on Any Budget with Sam’s Club & A Kitchen Aid Mixer Giveaway

There’s a Sam’s Club about a half of a mile from my house.  We used to be members but let our membership lapse a couple of years ago.  But this week I rejoined after I was issued a challenge from Sam’s Club to create a holiday meal for my family for $50.  Sam’s Club sent me a membership and a gift card to get shopping.

I wasn’t sure what to expect for $50 but believe it or not, I had no problem making a nice dinner for the fam on that cost.

With 4 people in our family, I didn’t need a ton – here’s what I got:  I got a fully cooked turkey breast like this one (but got turkey breast only) for $19.98.  Can I tell you guys, this was DELICIOUS.  And huge.  It lasted for 3 days – 2 meals plus I sliced it up for sandwiches for my son for school for two days after. Not bad for $20.

Then I got potatoes and broccoli for another $20.  So I was well under $50 and ended up getting some extra fruit and other produce to get myself to $50.  Awesome, right?  I will definitely be shopping for meals again at Sam’s Club for the rest of the holiday season and beyond in 2012.

Giveaway: Sam’s Club has also offered a generous giveaway to Mommies with Style readers for the holiday season!   One lucky winner will receive this KitchenAid Professional HD Stand Mixer that’s pictured to the left ($268.98 value!)

    I’m not a member as I am a single person household. Also the Sam’s Club is about 10 miles away, in a direction I rarely travel. So I’d spend more in gas than my savings would be.,
