Know Your ‘Stock-up Price’

30 Jan

Being a couponer, you want to try to stock up and buy as many of an item to last you until the next sale…when the item hits its all time low price.

How do you know when it will go on sale again?

It is almost a guarantee that that everything will go back on sale within 6 months. So when and item hits its my ‘stock up’ price, I will get as many of it as I can to last me six months.

Your stock up price might be different than mine, it all depends on how much you feel comfortable paying for an item and what you already have in your ‘stock’ :) For example, we have at least 100 tubes of toothpaste. So even if it is free within the next 6 months, I’m not gonna buy any for me. (Still buy some to donate though!)  But on the other hand, I’m running low on cereal. So if I can get cereal for less than $1 a box, I’m definitely going to stock up on it.

Here are some of my stock up prices:

  •  Toothpaste  – FREE
  • Cereal – $1
  • Laundry Detergent – $2
  • Razors – $2
  • Shampoo & Conditioner – .25
  • Condiments – .25
  • Toilet Paper – Less than .25 a roll

What’s your stock up price on some of these products?

    How exactly would you keep track of your stock-up price?

    You could try creating spreadsheet some people use them to keep track of their stockpiles. I’ll stock up on shampoo if its under $0.75
    what about cleaning supplies is it better to make your own or wait until its really cheap/free?

      I create a spreadsheet to keep track of my stock up price.
      With cleaning supplies, I wouldn’t recommend going out to the store and paying anywhere near full price. ‘If’ I didn’t already have a stockpile, I would make my own until I did find a good sale to stock up on. Hopefully that helps!

        Thank you! Is there anyway you might be able to download the spread sheet on a post?
