    Default Stockpiles!

    Does anyone stockpile? I know that having a stockpile can really be useful and save money but it also can make you feel like a haorder!


    For me I feel like a hoarder, it causes clutter and I would hate to waste! We also don't have a lot of extra storage area. Somestuff I will but not loads and loads like some stockpiles I have seen!

    I stockpile nothing. We move way too much for that thanks to the military.

    I wouldn't say that I stockpile anything, but if I see a really good deal on the kids' mouthwash or shampoo, I'll buy 4-6 bottles. We go through it quickly, though.

    I have stockpiled 4 bottles of shower gel recently because I am getting an awesome deal on it right now. I want to get some more because it is good quality and supercheap.

    My stockpile (nothing like on Extreme couponing) has dwindled greatly. My area just isn't getting the deals that it used to and when there is a good deal everything is cleared out. I had almost a year supply of laundry detergent, but I only have a couple months worth left. Toothpaste I still have enough to last a while. I don't feel like a hoarder....I feel prepared for those times that I don't have the energy to go out shopping every week.

    I don't stockpile like on the TV show, but I do keep a lot of certain things on hand because we consume/use so much of it or because it's a great deal. Things like toothpaste, frozen fruit, canned tomatoes, toilet paper etc. I can't stockpile everything anyway, not enough room in the house!

    I don't do a lot of stockpiling, but there are some things that I try to always have on hand. We buy paper towels/toilet paper/tissues in bulk at Costco because it's so much cheaper, so my linen closet usually has a stash of those things in it. We buy the 25 lb bags of flour because it's cheaper and we go through A LOT of flour (I love to bake, and I make all-or almost all- of the bread and crackers that we eat).

    I will also buy several jars of peanut butter when I find a good deal, diced tomatoes when they are on sale (we go through a lot of them), and canned pumpkin (we've had shortages here the last couple of years, so I have to grab it when I see it).

    I have a shelf in my laundry room where I keep the extras, and when it's full, I don't buy any more. That way I don't end up with more than we need/can use in a reasonable amount of time, or clutter up my whole house.
