I think the key to any of those places (Sam's, Costco, BJ's etc) is to know your prices. If you don't, you can easily get drawn into 'bigger is better'...JMO.
My MIL *loves* Costco, she does all her shopping there. Unfortunately though, she is a household of one person. I do go in with her on produce and sometimes meats and it makes it even a better deal for the both of us, but sometimes she'll go and buy an insane amt of something, that she just cannot consume before it goes bad. No savings there!
I like their produce, meats, they have a nice wine selection and I buy some other things there like certain crackers, snacks etc
