Stockpile a LITTLE at a time!
I feel like I need to talk about what I call my food storage or stockpile. As you read my blog you will see that I do not shop like most. I try to stock up on the sale items for the week. Buying them at a low price and saving myself money in weeks to come. I now have a good supply of most the items I need or want. But here is the point I need to make, I did not buy all these items in one week or month. This is a way of life for me, I have been shopping like this for years. Over time, months-years, I now have a large supply on hand.
The reason I feel like I need to address this is because some people are going way over board and clearing the shelf. The stores are frustrated because they do not have the items the customers want. The customers are frustrated because the items they want are gone too. Remember there will always be another sale. If you decide you want more than normal PLEASE think about placing an order with the store. But still remember that the warehouse only have so much stock on hand don’t get to carried away. As more of us coupon, the stores will learn to keep more stock on hand, Remember to play nice!
