  1. Stockpiling
    Hi everyone. I think it is time for me to start a stockpile. I have always bought a little extra on good sales but with 6 people in our house and trying to work with a tighter budget I need to have more on hand. I have a good sized pantry and decentsized chest freezer. I am also trying to...

    With fall around the corner I have started my winter stockpiling. Always like to have lots of honey on hand during cold and flu season. Was able to pick up 5 pounds for $16. Also purchased some roasted seaweed and fresh ginger. Since I do not have a car getting to stores is a little...
  3. Stockpiling
    Okay, hang with me. Since I do have debt, I wonder if it's really a pay off to buy those extra cans of corn? Did I really need all of those this month, is there not going to be sales next week, would it have been better maybe to just buy three and throw the rest of the money at debt? That was...

    So, having had some times in the past where we suddenly had no money, I've noticed that crappy food in crappy times makes everything worse. Suddenly going from a regular diet to living off bread and gravy, eggs, bacon and ramen is depressing. I read an article that suggested that you should...

    I'm looking for a reputable source online to buy staples like packages of instant mashed potatoes, canned foods, things that don't need refrigeration. I was hoping to find a place I could buy large cases or a full palet of food, or just a few cans/boxes/packages. Anyone know someone reputable?

    I am having some issues here and need some fellow frugal folk's input. At what point does it become hording? I currently have enough deodurant to last for several years. It was all purchased on sale and with coupons, I started with 6 tubes that I paid 75 cents each for and then just last week...

    Okay, this may be a silly question or one that has been answered before but I am trying to get back on board with couponing and starting my stockpile. I use to do this before I was following the DR plan so my question is this...do you have a separate budget for stockpiling or do you just use...

    I've recently divorced and have moved from our house with nearly 2400 square ft. living space, plus enormous morton building ... to a small "vintage" home of just barely 1000 sq. ft with no storage.... I've easily downsized my clothes, kitchenware, knicknacks, DVD's and books.... but I'm...

    My husband and I both agree that it is a good idea to have a stockpile of food- I'm not looking for a years supply or anything, but a nice supply in case of an emergency. I am great at shopping sales, using coupons, etc. But I have two questions: 1. How about expiration dates? It is great...

    At what point do you say, "enough is enough". I started stockpiling a few years ago, and I can't resist stocking up on something when it's at the "magic price", whether I really need it or not. I am beginning to feel that I am feeding an addiction. I worry about the economy, and that makes me...

    After treating my wife to dinner tonight for our date, we went for some grocery shopping. Crushed tomatoes were on sale for $1 each, when usually they are closer to $2.50. My wife was just going to get 2 for the two meals on the two-week menu that call for this, so I volunteered to get them...

    How long will flour stay good in an air tight container? How long does yeast stay good in an air tight container? I bought some at a health store and it didn't seem to work when i went to use it about a month later. How long will veggies stay good when canned...? I love frozen veggies better...

    1. Do you stockpile a 1-year supply of the "Seven Survival Foods" which includes grains, legumes, sprouting seeds, sweetener/s, salt, oil and powdered milk? 2. Do you make your own "convenience" foods using the Seven Survival Foods? 3. Do you store and use dehydrated and freeze-dried food...
  15. Question and Answer
    Right now I am finding more things than usual that I want to stockpile. Which would be fine except, my pantry which is basically one walk in closet is pretty full right now. I keep seeing items that I think Oh, that is a good price, I should stock up. Then I open the pantry door to see...

    Is it bad to stockpile wine, beer, and liquor? She was wondering if you stockpiled, would it be bad to stockpile a bottle of wine for every 2 days if you were going for a year's stockpile. I told her no. I think you should stockpile what you will use. If you use the wine, stock it if possible

    I started stocking up on Glade Scent and Spray airfresheners when I got 4 for free at CVS. I also have two of those oil candle holders. I plan on stocking up things like this for small Christmas gifts. What do you stock up on for the Hollidays?
