This is another week of the Building Stockpile For Free Challenge. I’m using deals and coupons to get things for free (before taxes) and build a stockpile without extra spendings. Feel free to join any time!
Week number 14 was a good one. I found some cosmetic, some make up bags, bread, and dish liquid. Bread was delicious. And make up bags look cute with pencils.
The main purpose of building a stockpile is getting staples, that your family will definitely use. So when you need something you don’t have to run to the store and pay high price. And the main purpose of this challenge is to get these items for free. So you can use your money more efficient.
Last week I was lucky to get exactly this. Staples, that my family uses and likes. Shampoo, toothbrushes, and toothpaste, that are always welcome to my stockpile. So what did I get?
Colgate Enamel Health Whitening Toothpaste Clean Mint (4.0 oz / 113 g) $3.99
2 Value Packs of Oral-B Indicator Contour Clean Toothbrushes (2 pc) $5.00 each
2 Dove Nourishing Oil Care Shampoo (12 FlOz / 355 ml) $5.29 each
Every time I think about couponing I feel, that it takes so much time! So this week I decided to check how much time exactly I will spend to find the deals, cut/print coupons, and put it all together. 1 hour 15 minutes! Honestly, I was surprised. I thought it takes much more time. Off course I don’t count the time spent in stores, because if I will go to buy something without coupons I will spend the same amount of time, or maybe even more if I won’t have a list.
