Holiday Prep Made Easy with BJ’s Wholesale Club

I’d like to thank BJ’s Wholesale Club for sponsoring this post. Without it, I may not have been able to pull off my holiday shopping! As always, all opinions are 100% my own.

Holiday prep has officially begun! The kids are out of school on break (yay?), which means we are short on time and full of errands. It’s a race to see how much we can get done without meltdowns and trying to keep the family peace. And these days, I’m learning to simplify as much as possible—which usually means finding multiple purposes for single actions, rehabbing vintage decorations, one-stop shopping and even re-purposing a wreath for even more décor uses.
In an effort to minimize stress in our home this year, I’ve decided to buy wholesale in order to save on both money and time. At BJ’s Wholesale Club, I can get groceries for the whole family, and even stock up on food for entertaining guests and simultaneously snag holiday gifts and supplies while prepping for a long night of wrapping. With such little time on my hands these days I’m able to appreciate the small victories that allow me to gain some peace and be a better mom and wife.

Holiday Centerpiece Cheese

At BJ’s you will find everything you need to make your holiday shopping a breeze, with reversible wrapping paper, holiday pajamas for the kids, and a festive pillow – I was set in one trip.

Holiday Centerpiece
Each year we let the boys open one gift on Christmas Eve, they know what it is, but it’s still a surprise. We wrap their new Christmas pajamas and they always race to put them on before bed. BJ’s has a variety of bedtime pajamas and bathrobes at every day low prices, which makes it perfect for celebrating Christmas Eve and creating your own traditions without breaking the bank.

Speaking of celebrating…

During my trip to BJ’s I was able to gather all of the ingredients for a perfect cheese platter with all the fixins’. Their assortment of serving platters is pretty impressive, and I decided to put my own twist on it by adding this Berkley Jensen 11-Pc. Slate Cheese Board Set to our new Berkley Jensen 28″ LED Decorative Wreath to create a holiday centerpiece! Look how festive! And the decision was made easy with BJ’s high-quality and affordable holiday décor options.

We made life simple with a pre-cut cheese platter, the Wellsley Farms Cheese Cube Party Tray, 48 oz. worked perfectly and then we just set it all up like we’re fancy. No one will be the wiser! 

We also stocked up on enough wine to keep the party flowin’, I mean going. The wine selection at BJ’s is unmatched, with the Wellsley Farms Lodi Red Blend and the Wellsley Farms Monterey Chardonnay as great options for all of your celebratory needs. I needed wine, lots of it. I can explain, I’m in the PTA.

Holiday Centerpiece

Needless to say, BJ’s really saved my tush when it came to holiday planning! I was able to purchase everything we need to make it a festive and fun holiday for all, all in one place. The stress that this one-stop shop relieves is incredible! It allowed me to relax and enjoy my family during the holiday season, and that is priceless.
