MONEY SAVING IN MAY: BUILDING OUR STOCKPILE TOGETHER THIS MONTH
It has been a long time since I have run a teaching series. This time I have decided to take it to another level. On a daily basis I receive emails and comments from readers asking me about couponing, stockpiling, and how to get started. Saving money can be a daunting task. Especially if you are a beginner. It can be overwhelming when trying to figure where to start, what stores to shop at, how many newspapers to buy, etc…
So starting in May we are going to BUILD OUR STOCKPILE TOGETHER!
I will be starting my stockpile from scratch. With my move I have almost emptied out my closet and it’s time for me to build my family’s stockpile back up. There is strength in numbers so we, you (my readers) and myself, are going to build up our stockpiles. In the month of May we are going to start with the basics and build up our beauty and health care stockpiles. This will include items like:
- body wash
- diapers/diaper wipes
- washing powder
- dish detergent
I am going to scour the sales ads each week and record a video, as well as write a detailed post, about the items that I plan on buying that week for my stockpile and the coupons that I will be using.
You can join with me. I will only use coupons that you can get in the month of May’s newspapers or coupons that you can print off of the internet. That way everyone will have the opportunity to participate fairly. The stores that I will be shopping at to build our stockpiles are:
- Rite Aid
- Family Dollar
- Dollar General
I feel as if the majority of these stores can be reached by the majority of my readers. So if you are ready to start building up your stockpile I hope you’ll leave a comment below stating that you will be participating and check in with the blog on Sunday’s, Wednesday’s, and Saturday’s to report your progress.
Here is a breakdown of participatory days:
- SUNDAY: The weekly savings video, along with the weekly savings article and shopping list, will be posted.
- WEDNESDAY: A mid week check in post will be made where we can post our successes so far, as well as our frustrations, and ask for tips/help.
- SATURDAY: A week’s end post will be made where I’ll show not only my purchases for that week, but the purchases of anyone who is willing to send me a picture of their shopping trip.
I can’t wait to get started and I hope to see you there!
