What are the best products at Sam's Club?

My family has a Sam's Club membership. What are the best products to buy there? I like their bulk coffee, nuts, and much of their produce. My mother-in-law likes their optical shop and tires. Do you have any other specific recommendations? [more inside]

Where to look for unconverted industrial space in London?

I would like to buy unconverted industrial/office/non-residential space in London, like a warehouse or a school hall, to transform it into live-and-work artist studios over a few years. The state of dereliction does not matter too much, nor does the location, but how can I actually find some for sale? I doubt most of these things make it to mainstream websites, as Zoopla/Rightmove hardly have two handfuls of commercial properties for sale at a given time. Any clue?

stockroom safety issue

My workplace seems to deal with storage in a way that is unsafe: we have boxes stacked to the ceiling (one box on top of the other, not layered like brick) along several walls and shallow crates and flat boxes stacked to the ceiling in an area at least 6' on each side without any sort of support other than the containers everything is in. Is this normal for stockrooms and warehouses? If not, how can I do something about it? [more inside]
