How to Build a Stockpile
“Stockpiling is a great way to save money by allowing you to shop the sales cycles rather than paying full price for the items you use regularly. No matter what your budget you can build a stockpile for your family. To get started, here are some helpful tips on How to Build a Stockpile.”
Do you have a stockpile? I started stockpiling our frequently-used household goods (both food and non-food) a few years ago and it has made a big difference in how far our budget stretches! Two of my favorite stockpile items are diapers and baby wipes. I wait until Target has a big sale on baby items complete with a gift card rewarding me for my purchase, use a coupon from coupon.com, combine it with a Target coupon, and stock up for months on end for far less money than if I just bought them when I needed them. Another item I love to stockpile is butter. I buy lots of it when it’s on sale during the holidays, stick it in the freezer, and pull a stick out when it’s needed as the year progresses. It doesn’t take up much space in my freezer, and I can end up buying my butter at about $1.50-$2.00 a package rather than the roughly $5.00 price tag during other times of the year.
