Stockpiling 101

The secret to stockpiling is learning what you would pay at the lowest price. Now it varies from person to person from state to state. Sam lives in VA so she is able to double coupons. I am not able to double coupons (Florida is the land of BOGO) so her deals are sometimes better than mine. Here in florida we have more of the BOGO deals, which Sam tells me is better ( I still don’t see it, lol) You have to sit down and decide what is the lowest price you would pay for something and then at that point you should buy as much of that product to get you through a new cycle. Speaking of cycles I should explain that coupons run in cycles to go either with the seasons/holidays etc. Right now the cycle is back to school, so you will find a lot of coupons for snacks, supplies, things of that nature.

In terms of buying as much product as you can, I mean if you know you want 50 bottles of body wash contact the store and preorder the product, please don’t clear the shelves. Here is an example of my rock bottom prices & product.

Toothpaste (.25)
Bodywash (1.00)
Dental Floss (Free)
Hair ties (Free)

etc etc. My toothpaste for example is .25, meaning I would never spend more than .25 per tube of toothpaste. Once you get the hang of couponing you will learn you never pay for toothpaste or at the max would only pay .25 per bottle. At that point you should stockpile.
