Tour my Stockpile!

Here it is!! I have spent the last 2 nights, getting it all re-organized, and cleaned out (of any expiring products, and donation items)!!

You will get to see 100% of my stock!

Pantry with cake, cookie, and brownie mix, snack foods, crackers, soda, juice

Pantry with granola bars, salad dressings, BBQ sauce, seasoning packets, hot sauce, peanut butter, oatmeal, sugar (5 gal bucket, and yes it was FREE) and syrup!

This shelf hold hair products, shampoo, condition, body wash, lotion, plastic goods, travel toiletries, tissues, aerosol air sprays, hot beverage cups, airwicks & mints!

This shelf hold baby items, oral care, candles (too bad ParyLite doesn't have coupons) make-up, first aid supplies, dog food, and more air wick/glade!

This is on top of the last 2 shelves, it houses feminine products, extra cereal and juice boxes (out of reach)

Here is our peg board with cough drops, q-tips, soap bars, toothbrushes, floss, travel Toilet paper, bottles, first aid kits, and RAZORS!!!

Here is the main shelf in the room, it houses too much to list!!

Our Powerade Stash!

Gabi's broken dresser was perfect for my stockpile! It houses paper towels in the bottom, deodorants and sprays in the drawers and misc. on top!

This is our Meat/Veggie freezer! It has homemade jams, frozen fruits, veggies, and every kind of meat you could want!

This is our snacky freezer, and there is a cabinet on top with crackers, popcorn and pancake mix.
This shelf is right outside the laundry room door, so it hold the laundry soap, toilet paper, pastas, tuna, more BBQ sauce and extra cereal!

This is what I keep on the shelves above my dryer, snuggle sheets, sponges, magic erasers, plastic gloves, travel tide, and shout wipes!

This is the shelf above the washer (yet to be torn out and re-modeled)
Here is a look into the pantry in the kitchen (please excuse the horrible cabinets, those are coming out soon!!!)

Ahhhh.... my favorite of them all!! PLASTIC!! For those of you that don't know me, I have a MAJOR obsession with plastic totes, and I my first Tupperware experience was LOVE at first sight!!! I have an awesome consultant, and she will help you get all of this for FREE!!! Just ask me for her info!!

One more, this is above my fridge!!

I hope you enjoyed the tour, and now have some inspiration to get out there and clip some coupons and start stockpiling!!
They key is to STAY ORGANIZED!! I could not imagine how this would be if it were not!!

I love your colorful glasswear! Your pegboard reminded me of my shoe bag with clear pouches hanging inside my hall closet. I know they are not the same, but the commonality is that you can spread your stuff out and at a glance see what you are running out of. I put all the kids allergy medicine, pain reliever, first aid, adult cold remedies, etc in a pouch and label the pouch with a sharpie.

Wow that is some serious storage. Wish I had that much laundry detergent. I am out! Staci from www.designingandmotherhood.blogspot.com

this is amazing. i assume you buy it all on sale in bulk? i don't have that kind of storage space, sadly, so i'll never be able to be THAT thrifty :(

One Thrifty Chick said...

Thanks ladies!

@Honey... I have collected Fiesta Ware since I was 17, and absolutely LOVE it! I have yet to even break a piece of it too!

@Staci.... The laundry soap deals all stacked up back to back, I kid you not. I stocked up at $6 each (i was used to paying $13), then I got some all for $0.49 each, so I special ordered 20 bottles, and THEN... the Purex was a free deal... so needless to say, I special ordered that as well!! It wont go bad, and we use a TON!! BTW Staci... I LOVE your blog!!!

@Wicked Thrifty.... I buy it all using coupons and on sale, and my storage space in literally a 15'X5' space. Just VERY neatly organized and stuffed together! haha

I am visiting from Thrifty Decor Chick party. I bow down to the stash master! I am slightly envious of your coupon skills. I took a class and have saved a bunch of money and have managed to get one or two small things free. I wish I lived closer to take your class so I could learn from the master. I noticed you said you ordered some things on deal.....any tips? Thanks for shairing!!!

One Thrifty Chick said...

Hey, I tried posting a comment earlier, but it didnt post. How strange. So anyhow... I have a packet of info I can mail to you about couponing. I see that you are in NC? If that is so then I have the BEST coupon site for you to check out. It is Hip2save.com I believe she is in NC herself. Check out some of her videos on youtube as well. They are very helpful!!

I am headed over to check out your blog! Thank you for the sweet comment!

I love, love, love sneaking a peek inside pantries and storage closets. I could go shopping in yours!! Love it! I don't know what your family is like, but I hope they won't mess up all your great organization.


Jen said...

Holy Cow!!
I need some coupon lessons!
Looks like you're a master of organization!

Wow! That is impressive! :)

Dani @ Just Drops in the Bucket said...

I am blown away and so happy I stopped by. Fantastic work here!


Amanda said...

Um. I'm staring at this comment box trying to even think of something to say. I went to Kroger yesterday and was psyched bc I saved $3.00 with my coupons -- and spent $40. Half of the time I forget them in the car, or they are all jumbled up lol. And obviously the coupons in Indiana are not the same as in ___ (fill in blank here) bc laundry detergent for $.49 is unreal! :) Keep clipping coupon queen! :)

kayla said...

WOW! Now this is what I call a pantry! Just looking at your pictures.......ok I'm speechless! My pantry is like just one of your cabinets, and I thought I was stocked! LOL!

How in the world do you get laundry detergent for $.49? Have any other tips?!

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

This is amazing!! I would love to go shopping with you one day.

Suzie said...

Super! Wish I were that organized.

I am in awe! I did the CVS game for a few months this time LAST year and my stockpile of toothpaste and shampoo is still going strong... but I just don't have the time or space to do it for everything (nor do we eat food quickly enough to ever use everything on those shelves without it going bad lol!)... I find that for our busy lifestyle Aldi's works better. I used to budget $150+ a week and still go over-budget for our family of 3... after going through Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University, I budget $75/week at Aldi's and usually come in around $40, giving us a bit of extra for splurges, dining out, or unplanned dinner guests. But I must say that your coupon stockpile leaves me speechless!!!

One Thrifty Chick said...

Jessica that is great! I too am a HUGE Dave Ramsey fan!! He is a life saver... in our case he is helping us save for our lives! lol I wish you luck and am impressed with the $75/week for food. We budget $100 a week and I am usually around the $75 mark!

I wouldn't know what to do with myself if I had that much storage space! I'm green with envy.

lboogie said...
