Today’s Stockpiling topic is a discussion so feel free to chime in!
Last weekend, I was taking a thorough inventory of my stockpile and I’ve made a list of things I have resolved NOT to buy for the rest of the year (unless I happen to stumble across any of these things for completely free – then it would be silly NOT to get them!)
So, here’s my list:
Men’s body wash
Dry Pasta of any kind
Stockpiling….bargain hunting…sometimes I feel I’m one step away from being on Hoarders. But knowing when enough is enough (for now) is an important part of it. And knowing when a good deal isn’t good for you (yeah, the Old Spice body wash is only $1 but if you have 17 bottles at home….) I know, it’s hard to do because you wonder when those deals will stop. A couple weeks ago, I was watching out toilet paper supply get smaller and smaller because there hadn’t been a good deal on toilet paper in a long while. But I (nervously) waited it out, and before I had to open my last pack, Winn-Dixie did their What-A-Deal promotion with Charmin and the week after that Food Giant had a good deal on Angel Soft with a double coupon. So now, I can report that we all well stocked on toilet paper again! So, the deals will come around again. Know when enough is enough for now.
So, I ask you…what do you have enough of for now. What can you pass on buying for the next month or so?
