I mentioned that, even though we have been buying necessities, I’ve slacked on truly shopping and saving for a while.   I guess I just needed a break.   We all do and it’s okay!   Now, we’ve almost completely depleted our stockpile. and I’m working to replenish it.   With a stockpile on hand, I can use my budget each week to keep the stockpile stocked well without paying full price.

I’ve mentioned before that to stockpile you simply need enough to get you through to the next great sale, so approximately 6-12 weeks.

Step one, is to reorganized my coupon stash.   Many of you have seen my no-clip organization system, which works for me and saves me time.   With a good stockpile, I was okay not getting every deal and letting a few things slide by, if I didn’t happen to clip the coupon.   If it was something I really wanted, I could always come back later.   However, to replenish our stockpile quickly, I need all my coupons with me, so I won’t miss a great deal.

Here’s how my daughters and I worked together to take my massive pile of inserts and organize them into a cute CD holder I found for $7 at Walmart!   It took A LOT less time than I expected, thanks to my crazy daughters who like to clip coupons.
