One of my most requested topics is an updated stockpile post or video. For me it’s one of the easiest ways to save my family money and I’m going to tell you how you can do it to.

There’s some impressive stockpiles out there and there’s a few that I’m jealous off, even though my own stockpile is large.

One of the main responses I get is – “but I haven’t got the room to stockpile.” My response is simple – yes you have.

A stockpile doesn’t need to be large and in your face. It can be a simple cupboard in the kitchen, a shelf under the stairs or a space in your airing cupboard. Your stockpile is as big as you need it to be.

Once you have found your space the next thing you want to do is make a list of your most used non-perishable items such as laundry products, bathroom items, tinned foods – that sort of thing. This list will help you stay organised as your stockpile begins to build.

Then all you need to do is build your stockpile. When you see items on offer, reduced to clear and coupon items, snap them up and store then away.

Your stockpile will grow over time. It’s not something that will appear overnight but you will be amazed at just how quickly it does grow.

The last and most important part of having a stockpile is organisation, without this your stockpile will very rapidly become a pile of mess and frustration.

My top three tips for keeping your stockpile organised are:

  1. Rotate your stock well. That way things won’t go out of date before you use them.
  2. Create sections for product groups – for example laundry, cleaning, baby.
  3. Keep it dust free and clean. This will help with reducing any waste as well.

Overall the thing you should remember is to enjoy stockpiling, I love it and find myself getting very protective of my stockpiling shelves.
