Stockpiling has saved me a TON of money. If you don't do it...give it a try. Just find a corner to pile your stuff and start watching the sales. Shelves are nice but not necessary. I remember reading in the Tightwad Gazette once...Would you rent out the space under your bed for $30 a month? Who wouldn't? Well, if you put food under there that you got a great deal on that is essentially what you are doing. Most of us here in WI are fortunate enough to have basements so maybe you won't even have to put a bunch of stuff under your bed!
Think you don't have room in your budget to stockpile? Think again. The little bit you save this week can be used to save more next week....until you rarely pay full price for the things you use the most. (Like rolling ECBs!) If you already stockpile a little bit (toothpaste anyone?), branch out to other products to save even more.
I've talked about this before but since this is a good time of year to buy certain sale items I thought it might be a good reminder. Keep an eye out for sales on baking supplies, spices, and turkeys(!) in the next few weeks. Buy enough to last you until next year at this time. You'll love pulling out items instead of adding them to your shopping list. And come this time next year if prices have gone up (and they will!) you be using items bought at this year's (lower) prices!
Below is a picture of some of my current stockpile. I didn't pay full price for any of these items and some I got for free.
"Internet coupons should be legible and say "Manufacturer Coupon". There should be a valid remit address for the manufacturer and a scanable bar code."
The Dept head told me that they are on the lookout for these other coupons and that most coupons are completely legitimate - now that was a relief to hear! At least we can use them at Walmart. Does anyone know of any other place in Green Bay that takes them?

Use coupon code FALLPENNY08 at checkout on Snapfish through this Saturdy 10/11 to get 50 4x6 prints for a penny each! Code can be used only once and any prints over 50 will be charged their regular price of 9 cents.
I have found Hooray for Freebates (http://freebates.blogspot.com) to have some good deals.

|HURRY! KMart is offering super MoneySavingMom.com. Not all seem to think they are "participating stores." I called the on Lombardi Ave and they said, "No, we are not participating." However, I then called the KMart national customer service line, and they said "Yes, ALL stores HAVE TO participate." So, the customer rep I spoke to sent an e-mail to the store manager at KMart on Lombardi, and then I called them back to tell them what I learned. So, they are now participating. If you shop at KMart East, you might want to make the same phone calls. The KMart national customer service phone # is . Happy shopping! ~Anne T.days Oct 1 - Oct 5. They will double coupons $2 or less, and you can use up to 75 coupons per day (NO printables, though). I heard about this deal on|
