Random Stockpile Shots

I love all the deals on soda lately! I was getting really low, but between CVS and Walgreens' sales, I've been able to stock up again. Here's my stockpile of fizzies: And a random shot of my kitty litter, shaving cream and laundry detergent stockpile. You all store them together also, right? :)
And my paper goods stockpile (I have a pile of toilet paper in another spot):
And here is my insanely messy to-be-donated table. I have to bag all this up soon -- its taking over!
Sheesh!

Ohhh, I love seeing stockpile pics. I just recently cleaned out a hall closet to put all personal hygiene stuff in there cause I needed more room for my food.

I need to stock up on soda pop too. Thanks for posting all the deals that you do.

nice pics! I am jealous of those who have a basement. I could do so much more if I had one, lol!

Okay let me get your opinion. I may do a blog on this.
I do stockpile somewhat, but not as much as I should, because we are selling our condo. It's not selling as quickly as we liked. I'm seeing all these deals and DH is telling me not to go overboard. When we move, we're moving in with his parents until we save up enough $$ to put down on a new house. I was thinking of getting a little closet to put stuff in, but DH says no b/c our house is now 'staged' for when/if ppl come to look at it. we really have no more room to stockpile, and I'm worried that I won't be able to stockpile when we move in with his parents....they don't have much room, but I think I can get DH to make a shelving unit in the basement....any thoughts? I'm soooo going to write a blog about this! :)

Lisa and Lindsay,
Me too! :) I was going to take some other pics of what I have down there, but its such a mess you can't really see how much I have. So I'll organize everything up and hopefully take some new pics soon.

Erin,
I live in an apartment, so I hear you on the space issue. Luckily, I have this storage unit in my garage so I have some space to work with.

Sashafras,
LOL! Sure, come on over! :)

Awesome stockpile! I am very curious! What kind of cat litter is that?

frugalsuz said...

Precious,
I have the Purina Tidy Cats litter system. Instead of traditional kitty litter that's like sand, this litter is little pellets. I still cannot get over how less messy it is! I love it! No more tracked kitty litter all over my apartment and its very easy to clean the litter box too. The only drawback is that its sometimes hard finding this litter. Target and Walmart carry it, and I've also seen it at Petco. It runs about $4-$5 per bag of litter and package of pads. The pads last me about a week (I have two boxes) and the litter lasts a couple weeks.

Spaghetti,
If I were house hunting and walked into a house that had a beautifully organized stockpile, that would be such a plus! :) Can you get creative with your stockpiles? You don't have to put everything in one spot. I have stuff stashed in closets, in decorative boxes on shelves that hide what's inside and in dresser and nightstand shelves. How about under the bed or in the attic? Maybe do a little spring cleaning to make some more room?

yay stockpile pics! I'm gonna post more pics this week too. Since I'm giving so much away to my cousin, I want to "document" how much I have now. BTW, did you see that there is another glade candle deal at SR this week? Actually, it's at SR and stop and shop. More smell good stuff for us! lol

frugalsuz said...

Amiyrah,
I did see that and groaned a little to myself, lol. I'm swimming in Glade products!

Lindsay said...

Suz, she's one of the few cashiers that doesn't hate me!

I have a whole store that I can't go to because I had to call corporate to inform the manager of CVS's Raincheck policy... Yikes!

frugalsuz said...

Lindsay,
Ugh, that stinks!

spaghetti0625 said...

HA! I'm the same way that if I walked into a house w/ tons of stockpile, I'd be in heavan and prolly buy the house on the spot! :) But DH says that some people will see it as 'clutter' So I guess I'll have to get creative. I have a closet in our spare room closet (sounds funny, but works) and it has all my Partylite stuff. Our closet in our bedroom is pretty bare, but like DH said, he doesn't want clutter. I guess if I HAVE to stockpile, I can always try to ship it to his parents house for the time being (no, not ship ship, it's the next time, just gotta drive it over).
But thanks! I'll have to think of some 'creative' ways with this....
