Couponing 101 Part 8: How to Stockpile & At What Prices

When you find deals on FREE or dirt cheap items stock up! This is only good for items that will not expire before use or ones that can be frozen. Stock items you know you will use. Toiletries, cleaners, pantry items, and frozen foods are great for stocking. You might spend a bit more now but will save tons later!

– There was a coupon a while back for $5 off Huggies diapering products and Target had the big packs of wipes on sale for $5.49 so I bought as many as I could for $.49 each! Can I just tell you we have enough wipes until the baby is potty trained!

-There was a sale for Gillette Razor kits and with coupons and several transactions I bought 20 razor kits for around $20.Plus I still ended up with $10 in Target gift cards. So REALLY it was like get 20 for $10! Who doesn’t need razors? Especially at this price? Why kits and not refills? Simple. It’s cheaper this way. Refills run about $15 for an eight count. Do the math for yourself it’s cheaper this way I promise.

When you stock up make sure your getting it the cheapest you can.  Stockpiles usually last 4-6 months at a time.  Sale rotations run every 6-8 weeks.  Most all items can be frozen with the exceptions of a few dairy and produce items.  Here is a great list of what you can expect to pay for standard stockpile items.

About the Author

Heather

First and foremost I must give credit where it is due. I would not be able to do this with out God. He is my provision. I'm blessed to able to stay at home with my two little ones. He always meets our needs no matter how big or small. I have a 6yr old boy and a 2yr old girl who for the most part keep me running. I've been married to my best friend for 7yrs. I'm always looking for a deal, and now I'm helping bring them to you. The purpose of this blog is to share my every growing knowledge of couponing, shopping, & frugality. I will also post sites I think you might enjoy and insists on my faith. I know that part is not "politically correct" and may offend some people but I honestly do not care. The Word is not and never will be "politically correct" until politics get back to the principals that they were originally based upon. Having said that I will get off my soapbox and back to the couponing. I starting couponing when we were in the Marine Corp a few years back and now it's become a part of me. If I don't have to have it or don't have a coupon, I try not to buy it. I say try b/c I'm a former shopaholic. LOL! Now I'm one with coupons! So needless to say Black Friday is my FAVORITE shopping day of the year!
