  1. Stockpiling
    We did okay on the first wave, largely because we had a stockpile. But there were a few things that were unavailable or excessively high priced. IF there's a 2nd Coronavirus wave in the fall, what are you stockpiling now? My thoughts * powdered milk * dried beans/lentils * frozen veggies *...

    All this year I have been teaching away from my husband and home, and next week I finally get to go back!! Hopefully forever *keeping fingers crossed on job situation.* So I'm heading back to a pantry that's been stocked by DH, whose food choices approximate a college frat boy - lots of junk...

    So, my husband is self employed and we never know how much money is going to come in/ or when it will actually get to us. This month, the companies that owe us money just haven't been paying. We've been able to pay our bills with absolutely nothing left over for such things as gas and groceries...

    I will be going through our pantry and fridge/freezer in the next week to organize it. Without going through it, I know offhand that I have enough dinners for the next two weeks for the two of us adults. I would like to work up to 45 days (about 6 weeks) of dinners/meals within the next month or...

    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...

    I've seen lots of posts about stockpiling money. How many of you practice this? Is this the same idea as a sinking fund? Do you do this along with BS2, if you are following Dave Ramsey's Money Makeover? Do you keep stockpiled cash in a separate savings account, along with your EF, somewhere...

    I love stockpiling, I think I'm addicted to it! But I also know that there is a good chance that DH and I will eventually be forced to leave this country, things are just so terrible here with the economy, he mentions it at least once a day now, and as much as I would LOVE to stay and make it...

    Did anybody else heed the warning that peanut butter would drastically increase in price within 2 months and overstock their pantry on peanutbutter? It seems that at least a month has passed since the warnings came out, and I haven't noticed any increase in peanut butter prices at all. And I...

    Is there any good Pantry/Stockpile Inventory Software that is free? I've seen the documents that are available, however I would love to be able to put this on my computer and then somehow access this on my phone when I am at the store. The one requirement is I want it to be accessed via...

    I'm new to the community, and wondering whether anyone stockpiles clothing. For example, you find your favorite jeans on sale and buy several pairs that you'll wear over the next few years. It's tough for me to find shoes, so when I find a pair that fits well, I'll buy a few. I guess it's...

    I started my stockpile in mid-July and now it's November 1, so I thought it was a good time to get it all out and inventory it. I decided to photograph it because I do think it helps to see it all out and it actually showed me that I had a lot less than I thought I did. My storage is very deep...

    Stopped at Aldi's after I went to the dentist and bought some stockpile items. 3 cans each of corn/lt kidney bns/dk kidney bns/black beans/chili tomatoes/mushrooms/frozen turkey rolls. That was all for making chili. The whole bottom basket of my fridge is full of frozen turkey rolls. So glad I...

    I once had a pretty good sized stockpile. Then my BIL stole some of the items. Then we used alot of our items over the hollidays. Then times got tougher and we kept using our stockpile without adding back to it. My dh also keeps giving my bil (his brother) food. So I am back to building my food...

    Ok I have a question for fellow stockpilers/preppers. I was wondering does anyone stockpile/prep for children who have left the nest but still stock up on things in case they fly back to the nest in the event of an emergency etc??? If so, you do you stock up a yrs worth of food/supplies for each...

    How can you stockpile when you don't buy that much processed foods? Any suggestions for a person that doesn't buy many foods that come in a box? I am thinking that I could can my food so I control the ingredients. Thank you in advance

    I thought it would be fun to share my stockpile :) And I'd love to see your stockpile too! This is h&b and paper products. My pantry is disorganized right now. This is above my upright freezer. TP. Purchased when it hits $4.99 and with a $1 coupon. Hoping to see better prices, but that seems...

    I have a terrible time with storing cornmeal. Even if I use an air tight container or jar, about 2-3 weeks after I buy some cornmeal I find little black bugs in it. I've tried looking online, and some places say these little critters come with the cornmeal and hatch in the right environment...
