Some of you are just finding my site because you just got done watching Extreme Couponing and you’re wow’d!  Your intrigued on building a stockpile and are wondering how did these people do it?

Well in the 4 part series, I’m going to teach you the basics of stockpiling.

Let’s get started with the first being:


It is important that you get organized!  This is crucial to building a successful stockpile.  If you are not organized, you will never know what you have on hand, your food will expire and overall you are just wasting money!

Now for your homework…

Your homework is to organize your fridge, freezer, pantry and anywhere else you plan on keeping your food and toiletries in.  Make sure you throw out anything you will not use and stuff that has already expired.

Promise me that you will not move on to Part 2 until you have done this!

Now that you’re organized, I want you to take inventory of what you have and what you are in need of, then join me tomorrow as we move on to Part 2 – Calculating your stockpile need.

  1. I’ve learned this one the hard way….I’ve always considered myself to be fairly organized, but have on a few occasions, I’ve went through my stockpile and realized I had let a bunch of things expire. I hate it when that happens…such a waste. Knowing what you have on hand is so important.
