I'm just now starting my stockpile, but I've spent this week making a list our high frequency items that I want to concentrate on to begin with. I have a limited budget, so I'm gonna have to take it slow. Luckily, I already have a small stash of many of these things, lol.
Basic First Aid (Neosporin, bandages, Band-aids, peroxide, etc.)
Cough drops and spray
OFF! Bug spray
Toilet bowl cleaners
Eucerin (poor lil' guy inherited my eczema)
Ready made formula--I like to have at least two cans in case of emergencies, or when I'm too tired to mix.
Baby fruits and veggies and baby cereal
Canned veggies, mainly peas, green beans and corn
Mighty Dog canned food
Beneful Dry food
Extra leash for each dog
Old towels/blankets for trips in the car or to lie on outside
Socks...I go through socks like crazy

Due to 2 recent deaths in my immediate family and the associated costs of funerals etc (that should be a new thread, how to die cheaply ), my stockpile has been depleted to next to nothing.
I currently have:
2-3 yrs worth of honey (liquid and creamed)
7 cake mixes
2 large jars of China Lily Soya Sauce
a year's worth of toothpaste
3 bottles of body wash
men's disposable razers
energy efficient lightbulbs
And that's it! I need to rebuild my stockpile again and I'll be laid off at the end of this month and go back to work at the end of August. So I have no clue what I'll be adding (if anything) to my stockpile during July and Aug since my next pay cheque after the end of June will be at the end of Sept.

I want to stockpile a variety of canned foods (veggies, fruit, meat etc), dried food/ingredients (rice, pasta, flour, yeast, salt, sugar, spices, etc), condiments (ketchup, various mustards, syrups, etc), vinegar and other baking supplies, frozen foods (meat, veggies, fruid, bread etc), shampoo, conditioner, laundry soap, fabric softener, dish soap, bleach, fem. products, razors, vitamins, cleaners, first aid items, heirloom seeds (even though I have yet to garden lol), and I'm not sure what else. There's prolly alot more that I need to stockpile but off the top of my head that's what I want for now. I want a yr's worth of food and supplies and possibly even more than that but for now, I'll be happy with 3 months worth of stuff. The past 8 months have knocked me down whenit comes to finances so bad with unexpected funeral expenses but that's just when you gotta dust yourself off and get right back up again.

My 6 month is still going pretty strong. I pretty much quit in January due to finances, except to replenish. I'm still working on replenishing and am going to add a few things to it.
I need to add back in about 10 lg reg coffees, 10 lg decaf coffees, at least 10 maybe 15 lg cannisters coffee mate.
Just bought 6 Splenda bags but want about 10 more.
I need again 3-4 gallons bleach, about 2 of the huge 120 washload Arm & Hammer washing powder, 3 Final Touch fabric softener. Final Touch dilutes half and half with water well.
Need peppers to slice and dice for the freezer. We use alot of them. Road stands ought to be getting them soon.
Several pkgs of margarine and butter. Used, replenished and out again.
Need maybe 8 lg pkgs TP.
I found it very odd how I thought I had 6 months of stuff like coffee and creamer. It didn't last no time. I thought a cannister of Folgers lasted about 5 weeks...nope, about 3. Thought cannister Coffee Mate lasted about a month...nope, about 2 1/2 weeks. Took the tip of someone on here to take a marker and date the day opened and note the date of last use. Real eye opener.
Goal is to again be able to go 6 whole months without having to spend but minimal money for groceries.Bank of America is THE godfather of Hell with Wells Fargo running neck and neck. When the world ends the only things that will be left are cockroaches, Walmart, Wells Fargo and Bank of America. Not necessarily in that order. The order remains to be seen.
