Clever Coupon Cents’s Stockpile

I That’s it. That’s all the clues. Unscramble this letter and hurry back to the page to tell me what it is! Good luck!

Here it is. My stockpile. The first picture is the food part of my stockpile (with some non-food overflow), and the second picture is the non-food part of my stockpile.

My whole stockpile is in my laundry room. Above the washer and dryer is where I keep the laundry detergent. I have 15 bottles of laundry detergent on this shelf. In the second picture, you’ll see a close-up of a section from my food stockpile with non-food overflow. I took a picture from the bottom so you could see just how much was there. That’s over 100 tubes of toothpaste. :)

In the first picture above, you will see the shelf where I keep all my travel size stuff. I find it much easier to keep all the smaller stuff organized in the little tubs. This is also were I keep the overflow of toothpaste. In the picture a few pictures up is over 100 tubes, and here around 60 more tubes. Alot of this overflow toothpaste will be gone later on this week, along with alot of the razors in the second picture. When I get more than I know what I can use in a reasonable amount of time, I like to donate to the local homeless shelter downtown. The next picture is my shaving shelf. Gillette fusion razors, Schick hydro razors, Schick women razors, and all my shaving cream. I keep my husband’s shaving cream on another shelf. I also keep a few miscellaneous things on this shelf… bandaids, contact solution, etc.

There are about 45 bottles of shampoo and conditioner here, 6 boxes of hair dye and 13 bottles of men’s bodywash. I have 27 bottles of Ivory bodywash where my non-food overflow is in the food part of the stockpile. The second picture is where I keep my cleaning supplies as well as my dishwashing and laundry supplies. :)

Here are a few pictures of the food part of my stockpile. The first picture is of the two shelves where I keep my meal ‘sides’. Hamburger helpers, beans, noddles, etc. The shelf below it is my daughter’s favorite shelf. :) It’s where I keep all the snacks. Pringles, PopTarts, cookies and more. :) In the second picture above, the first shelf is a ‘miscellaneous’ shelf. On this shelf I keep baking supplies, baby food, macaroni and cheese, Nesquick, etc. The shelf below it is where I keep all the drinks. And finally, in the picture here to the left is where my stockpile is struggling the most. Canned goods and condiments. I’m working on it, though. :)

I didn’t take close-up pictures of every shelf in the stockpile. If you have any questions or if there’s a shelf you see in the big picture of the stockpile that you’d like to see a close-up of, just let me know and I’ll upload it for you.

(These pictures are my stockpile as of November 1st, 2011)

    Beautiful stockpiles :) .. I am just starting off and still learning. What would you say you spend on average for all that? was most of it free?. What is your cut off amount that you won’t pay over? Thanx :)

    • Clever Coupon Cents says:

      Alot of it was for free, but I still payed for alot of it, too. I just wait until things are really cheap and then I buy alot of it so I don’t run out before it goes on sale again. I have a post all about stockpiles here. It has a list of prices that I usually wait until items are at before I buy them. :)

    Wow…that sure is a big stockpile…I like to hear that when you reach a certain point that you pack it up and donate it. There are so many places in need of these things, shelters, food banks, salvation army, churches that do food banks, and you can even try senior centers. The senior centers or meals on wheels is where I will try beause they are generally the most limited on funds and don’t spend $ on these things. I recently took my father in law a few bags of grocery items along with tolietries and he was thrilled to death at what I gave him.

  4. Christine Bevan says:

    Wow, you’ve done great so far! My husband completely loves the idea of me doing this and once we get a good stock, he’s going to build me a building with nice shelves and everything!

  5. Lois Jones says:

    Really nicely organized stockpile. I love how you have things grouped and set up. I am working on mine, but lack the room to do it.

  6. Wow, I hope I can get to that point soon, Right now , I can only get what we need , I have about 3 months supply
