    Wow! Amazing ladies here! I wish my stock pile was as big as any of yours. We've been running into trouble with our house ones thing after another so our stock pile is pretty diminished now. Hopefully I can start adding to it again soon

    Ok amazing everyone! You have all encouraged me to organize/clean out my storage area and get my stockup stuff organized. I don't stock up crazy like I did years ago but always make sure to have a few extras of things. I'm going to start tonight

    Cherie, that's the whole point of a stockpile though right? Allows you to fall back on it through harder times! In time

    Frualbigmama, Excellent! Glad we could motivate you

    It's nice to to have stockpiles but when I see the ones like on the televeion shows with mismatched shelving, unpainted wood shelves, unpainted walls, dirty shelving. Why aren't our stockpiles as pretty as one of our other rooms. We spend hours, reading, sending PMs, emails, mailing, trading, swaps, running around town(s), hauling, lugging, mailing in rebates to throw them in an area that does not merrit the respect that you deserve for all the hard work you did to get it to the proud status that you brought it up to. I am working on mine and when technology is available to me I will post my area - it will have just a bit of consistant continuity. Our stockpile rooms probably have more financial value than most of one of our spare rooms in our homes. Really and when you go and get what you need from an abandoned stark, cold room with unpainted, unorganized thousands of dollars and also maybe insurance should be added, I don't know. My stockpile is only about 3 months old and I have cleaners, TP, Laundry selections but nothing like some members have here. Wow. I'd have Red Velvet ropes, and music as you enter and serving a orange-juice and chanpagne drink before you enter. Aye-chi-mama!! I'm exagerating but it should be as nice as your other rooms, that's just miy opinion. Even if it just a broom-closet, we should make it special and your own and a showcase where your hard work is displayed just like trophees because everyone is a success story and your couponing skills clearly shelve. just a thought. Thanks everyone for sharing, it's nice to see all the skilled members accross the country.

    lol.. My stockpile placement is only temporary until I can afford to redo my kitchen and add a gigantic wall-long pantry :D The plan is in the works - money always seems to get in the way though doesn't it?

    ooooooooooh the things I would do if I had more money.

    I don't know if anyone else has run into this issue...but a FYI about toilet paper stockpiles....I have about a years worth stockpiled (during a good sale) and discovered that the ones that were around a year old are definitely deteriorating (I think the paper is starting to decompose) so I've started dating them!

    I think it's hard to tell which are newer and its easier to grab from the top. Problem solved with dating.

    I still made my family use them....haha!

    people should also remember to rotate there stock when they put in new stock just like they are supposed to do in the grocery stores. lt takes a bit of time but this way nothing should get outdated.

    for sure! I thank my lucky coupons that I was able to get so much, and it lasted this long.
    Once I start adding to it I'll take a picture, LOL

    I do this! Especially tooth paste. I dont stock pile it like I used to I found it was going expired before we were using it. So I keep 3 tubes or the grown ups and 3 for the kids. When ever I buy something it goes the back of the pile. if that makes sense lol
