Stockpiling -- What to Stockpile

Stockpile items that you know you and your family will use every day. Some of the most common items are:

Household Items
Toilet Paper
Paper Towels
Soap--hand soap (pump)
--dish soap
--Bar soap
Laundry Detergent
Diapers (you may want to buy larger sizes as well as the size you currently need)Baby Wipes
Cleaning Agents
Zip Lock Bags
Shaving Cream
Hair Styling Products
Garbage Bags
Feminine Products

Food Items
Canned Items--Soups
--Spaghetti Sauce
--Meats (tuna and/or chicken)
Boxed Meals
Formula/Baby Food
Rice/Soy Milk
Drink Mixes or Fruit Juices

Obviously you are not going to be stockpiling Diapers, formula and baby food if you don’t have a baby or children, so this is just a starter list of items that you may want to consider. I am sure I have missed items that really should be on this list.

Your ultimate goal is to stock pile by using coupons and sales to get the very best deal, and ultimately get the items for free, or at least as little out of pocket expence as possible.
