My Stockpile overall

This is my last post of the night. Below are a few pictures of what my stockpile looks  like that isn't tucked away in my linen closet. My hubby built shelving into a closet upstairs for me to put our personal care items in. And then we purchased shelves at Lowes to house the grocery items.
I hope to be able to add quite a bit of soup since it's getting colder and there have been some good soup coupons recently. It may seem as though I have a lot of certain things, but foodwise I am trying to stock up for about 6 months.

Great oral hygiene

The next items we have an overabundance of are toothpaste, toothbrushes and floss.

We have in total:
54 tubes of toothpaste = 39 Crest and 15 Colgate
29 packages of Reach Floss
57 toothbrushes

For all of these items I have paid maybe $10 for everything. The toothbrushes were free or $0.18 each, the floss was free, and all of the toothpaste was free minus a couple I paid $0.50 each for.

It will also save us money when we visit the dentist, nothing is as good as hearing "no cavities."  :)

We will never stink again

Deodorant seems to be one item in our house that we are stocked up on for probably the next 5 years or more. I took inventory tonight of our deodorant stockpile, and this is what it looks like.
This is what our deodorant stockpile includes:
16 Degree Men's
16 Old Spice
16 Brut
14 Suave
11 Speedstick Men's
10 Secret
9 Right Guard
4 Sure
3 Ban
1 Speedstick Lady

In total we have 90 deodorants. To say we shouldn't stink for the next few years is the understatement of the month.

PLEASE READ - Updated Kroger Coupon Policy

I realize I haven't updated in quite a bit, I recently started working full time again, and life is busy needless to say.

But I thought the below was a priority to let everyone know about Kroger's updated coupon policy. Most likely this ONLY affects the Kroger Cincinnati/Dayton/Northern KY division.

From the official notice:

  • We reserve the right to limit no more than five (5) paper manufacturer coupons for the same product, each coupon value considered (1) coupon in the same transaction.
  • Limit one manufacturer coupon (paper or digital) per item purchased.
  • Expired coupons are NOT to be accepted
  • Only Pharmacy Competitor coupons accepted
  • Couponed item will not be sold to dealers
  • Internet coupon restrictions/PAH coupons
    • "Free item" Internet coupons can be accepted if all purchase criteria is met
    • Only one Internet coupon per item will be accepted
    • Only two Internet coupons per manufacturer per Customer, per DAY.
    • Internet coupons that display characteristics below WILL NOT be accepted.
      • Blurry
