Because they don’t tell you everything on reality television we are here to reveal the secrets of Extreme Couponing.

Get Started Building a Stockpile:

Top 20 items: What are the top 20 items you use most frequently from your pantry? Look through your cupboards and closets. What do you have in there? What are you always running out of? Maybe look at your recipes to see what you need the most of.

Set goals:

  • How long do you want your stockpile to last?
  • Determine how many of each of your top 2o pantry items you would like to have in your stockpile.
Be sure to keep expiration dates in mind whenever you stockpile.
