Stockpiling 101: What to Stockpile and How to Do It!

Here is a picture of my stockpiling cabinets and shelves in my garage! I like to keep things simple! So, here it is….my stockpile!


That is the extent of my stockpile…like I said, I keep it simple! Of course I have a few things in my kitchen and bathroom, but those pictures above pretty much sum it up! Obviously, I am not an “EXTREME Couponer” (LOL) and I’ve never tried to be. I was around before that big “BOOM” of people. I know what works for me as a full-time working mommy and that’s what I do. When I was infatuated with coupons three years ago, it was a different story, but let me tell you….I threw away TONS of food! Crazy!

Here is a list of what I currently stockpile, simply because I use it the MOST (that’s what you should stockpile too…what you use the MOST!):

  1. Laundry Soap
  2. Fabric Softener
  3. Bleach
  4. Paper Towels, Toilet Paper & Tissue
  5. Foil, Plastic Wrap & Baggies
  6. Antibacterial Wipes
  7. Air Freshners
  8. Personal Care Items: Shampoo, Conditioner, Body Wash, Toothpaste, Mouth Wash, Dental Floss, Tampons, Pantiliners, etc.)
  9. Cleaning Supplies
  10. Drinks (Water, Soda, Juice, etc.)
  11. Dog Food
  12. Cereal
  13. Tea
  14. Gum
  15. Snacks (For my kiddos school parties and sporting events)
  16. Canned Food (Fruit, Veggies, etc.)
  17. Condiments (Ketchup, Mustard, Steak Sauce, Seasonings, etc.)
