Have you ever gone to the store and seen an awesome deal but then remembered you already have that item? I’m not talking about food or health and beauty items, this time I’m talking about things like towels, clothing, ect.
I love shopping the clearance at Target when I get a chance to get to town. Clearance items are rarely things that you actually need right now, because they aren’t on your shopping list (unless you get lucky!) but you can often find some great deals.
But if you don’t really need it, even though you may have the money, you shouldn’t get it right? Let me introduce you to maybe the funnest part of my stockpile…my New Stuff Stockpile. My New Stuff Stockpile consists of new clothing, undergarments, towels, and other similar things. All of it was boughten for very very little. I mean like kitchen towel 4 packs I found on clearance for $1, jeans I got for free with a great coupon.
When I bought these things I didn’t need them at the time but I knew that somewhere in the near future I would definitely need them. Clothes only last so long and instead of hanging new ones in my closet all the time I put them in the box and only pull out one thing here and there when I really need it.
I recently came across a few great deals on underclothes on daily deal sites. With credits I got way more than I could use right now so I put them all away for future use. If I hadn’t have gotten them now, even though I don’t need them right at this moment, I would have missed out on the deal.
I asked you on the Little House Living Facebook page and here’s what non-perishables you told me that you stockpile:
- Toilet Paper
- Tampons and Pads
- Laundry Detergent
- Canning Supplies
- Ingredients to Make Laundry Detergent
- Make Up
- Buckets and Lids
- Cleaning Supplies
- Contact Solution
So I want to know, do you stockpile non-perishables like this? Do you think it’s a good idea?
