Looks like its time to stock up on some basics!

Stockpiling is a key ingredient to really saving big $$ with coupons.  When you see a deal on something you use regularly–cheese (which freezes), cookies, medicines, cereals, shampoos, etc, stock up on it.  My rule of thumb is:

25-40% off–get a few

50-70% off–get 6 months worth

75-100% off–get a year’s worth

For example, several months back Kellogg’s cereal was on sale at Target for $2.33 a box.  There was a manufacturer coupon for $1 off any box, and a Target coupon for $1 off any box.  That brought my total down to .33 a box.  Now, that’s a substantial savings on Fruit Loops, Apple Jacks, Raisin Bran, etc.  I bought 20 boxes at that price–$6.70 plus taxes–enough for about 6-8 months.  Enough to last through their expiration date.  Recently there were baby wipes for free at Target–I have enough for a year or two.  I have stockpiles of laundry detergent, dish detergent, fabric softener, cat food, toilet paper, paper towels, juice, diapers, wipes, cake mixes, candy, soda, boxed potatoes, spaghetti sauce, shampoo, toothpaste and more.  I have enough of each of those things to last me 6 months.   I didn’t buy all of those at once–instead, it was a month by month, week by week collection.
