    When I started stockpiling or wanting to, that's the first website I went to when I googled for 'stockpiling'. I have that written down in my notebook but I haven't followed it. It is a good reference, though.

    I think it's a good starting point. But, I think we all find that once we start stockpiling our needs are all different.

    Thanks for sharing the info!

    At the moment the only thing I have stockpiled is soap and TP.

    I have never thought of keeping a list to check off, I am going to give this some serious thought and make a start.

    You are right, everyone's needs are different. It does say to cross off what you don't need and add in what you do. I thought it was a good place to start, too.
