    Default What items are you needing to stockpile?

    This past year was really rough on us financially. I used up a lot of my stockpile and am now trying to get it built back up now that things are looking up for us. I am watching for sales on the following items...

    Canned beans
    Canned fruit
    Peanut Butter (my dh can eat half a jar at a time on crackers)
    Crackers (see above LOL) Ritz, saltine and cheez its or goldfish
    Laundry detergent
    Shampoo and body wash
    Soups for cooking (cream of mushroom and chicken)
    TP I have IBS so I am always buying TP LOL
    Tea bags
    Tomato paste and sauce

    I'm running low on condiments. Ketchup, relish, sandwich spread. Grated romano cheese. Salad dressing. Tuna.

    My freezer is almost empty, but Super 1 has chicken breast .88 lb, so I'll be picking up a lot of that immediately.

    Patience. I ALWAYS need patience.

    Grocery-wise, I'd say pasta & rice though we really don't each much nor often, TP & paper towels b/c we'll always use it and canned food items - veggies, fruits, soups etc but we're limiting our stockpiling this year.

    We need toothpaste and deodorant. DH needs bodywash. I'm not sure what he does with it. I can make mine last months longer than his.We have some bar soap but he thinks we have moved too far up in the world to use it any more----a downside of getting some things cheap by using coupons.
    TP since I'm home all day home.
    Just checked the bathroon closet---need to stockpile denture cleaner. Another DH problem with.

    I really want to concentrate on using up things that we have stockpiled already. Then we can start over again. Now that I'm retired I can be more up on what we do and do not have.

    You can still use dried out bars of soap no? OR can you grate them up and boil them down and turn them into liquid hand soap or body wash? There's this thread that may help you.

    We're looking at meat, vegetables and mostly frozen things like fish, french fries, etc. It's basically staples that we use around the house for everything.

    Our chest freezer is almost empty and my goal's to have it filled by the end of the summer so when the money gets tight (usually around the middle of August), we can fend for ourselves out of the freezer.

    If my plan to go back to work comes true, I might start stockpiling for the rest of the fall and the entire winter.

    I'm thrilled with my stockpile, but I would like to stock up on the following:

    - canned crushed tomatoes
    - canned tomato sauce
    - paper towels (but no more than 3 rolls, I use 2 rolls/year); waiting for a sale
    - TP
    - tortillas (waiting for a sale)
    - boxed red wine

    Our income for February will probably be ZERO, so I'm extremely happy to have the stockpile in place.

    Space. I need more space to store stuff. Either that or get rid of more crap. I'm trying to work the stockpile down.

    On a related note, if you're looking for crackers the Superbowl is Feb 5 and I bet there will be a lot of sales. There are coupons out right now for triscuit/ritz/wheat thins.

    Also saw some for soup on the various coupon web sites this week.
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    Make it do, Or do without. ~unknown

    I'm just starting to be honest, not to have a 6 month supply or anything, but just so we don't need to buy things at the regular price (and it's working we are starting to FINALLY see the grocery bill go down).

    We need to stock up on:
    ketchup, mustard, peanut butter, all toiletry items we need

    We'll get there as money allows, but so far of our little bit of progress so far

    Well, I just started mine last week so I need everything! lol We had some awesome deals at a few stores today that actually got me up out of bed in this snowy weather after only sleeping for 3 hours, so I got a lot of good stuff for cheap. Now I just need sales like that every week!
