    We go maybe once every 2 months , it's amazing for party stuff, bulk lollies, Halloween stuff and be warned their Xmas decorations are unreal ( I bought a 49m roll of Xmas wrap for $12!!) plus they had some good toys and books as well.( disney, Barbie, all brand name toys) - you never really know what they will have when you go
    I bought fifth leg wine for $8 a bottle ( Dan Murphy's sell it for $16) and Mumm champagne for $39
    Not everything is in bulk, but usually they have bigger portions/ packets - I bought a huge King Island wheel of Camembert cheese for $10, the sell the mineral water we buy ( Santa Vittoria) for $.99 whereas woollies has it for $1.50 plus I did buy bulk toilet paper, paper towells, dish washing tablets, washing detergent and dog food - they let you go in and just look around during the week to see if you like it ( you can't buy though)

    With the membership can you get family members to chip in and get a membership so we all can use it

    The wine is interesting. I generally only find it exceptional value if they are selling things like Bollinger or Dom in magnums for the price as a normal bottle or something.

    Mumm is $40 everywhere at the moment. And $37 at DM's when you buy 6.

    Things like toilet paper and stuff are good though. I've only tagged along with someone once though so haven't fully explored.

    The membership is fully refundable at any time (if you cancel your membership a day before it expires you get the full fee back - the catch is you can rejoin within 12 months of cancelling membership)

    This was a Mumm gift box with 2 champagne flutes for $39 - we bought heaps for Xmas gifts as I think they looked cute!
