Ok so I do have a sizeable Health and Beauty Stockpile but I am hoping it lasts around 6 months. I am a family of five and we live on one income so money is tight anyway but I have learned from couponing that I need to stock-up on items at their lowest price, that way we can become debt free and afford other items we normally would not be able to if I was paying full price or even sale price. Coupon use is a must for my family and has given us the freedom to help others. In the pictures below is what I currently have but that is not what I completely bought. A good portion was given away in the $10 Coupon Challenge a couple of months ago. I’ve also donated its to my son’s school as well a given to friends and family. If you attend a Moms Saving Money Coupon class you will be sure to get a tube of toothpaste as well as other great freebies I give out which does come from my stockpile! What you see pictured may have cost me around $50 with 202 items, but its is definitely worth over $500 or so. So this is my extreme couponing!
Most of these items were bought at Kroger, Walmart, Walgreens and CVS. I do not believe in shelf clearing and nor did I do any shelf clearing when buying these items. I did abide by 4 “like” coupons/items per transaction.
I really wished someone would have taught me the value of couponing alot sooner. I did learn to really maximize my savings with coupons and store sales on my own which brought me to where we are now. I enjoy helping others save money even if its just a dollar or two.
There is no reason why anyone should pay full price for items when there is a coupon available. I really hope you all enjoy reading my posts and learn a thing or two about saving money.
