What is a “Stock Up Price”?
A key to couponing is knowing a good price when you see it! Sale cycles are usually about 12 weeks long. That means that every items will go on sale about every three month. Therefore, it’s a good idea to get enough of that item to last you at least until the next sale. In other words, you need to “stock up”. But remember- just because and item is on sale DOES NOT mean it’s a stock up price. So how can you tell the difference between a blah sale price and a stock up sale price? Look no further! I’ve created this cheat sheet to help you recognize great prices.
Below is my ultimate stock up price list. If an item reaches this price or lower, I stock up. Now, some people will buy enough products to last them another 10 years. That’s not my jam. I have a small stock pile. Sometimes, a 3 month stock, sometimes 6 months, if I don’t want to shop every sale cycle. I have a small shelf in my laundry room. You can buy one here.
Notes about Stocking up:
- Don’t buy more than you have adequate places to store.
- Watch those expiration dates. You don’t want to buy a 3 month supply of something that will go bad in 2 weeks!
- Prices on this list may vary by region. I’m in Texas, and these are pretty consistent with the sales at all of the stores I shop at.
- Prices on this list are the price after the sale and your coupon. If you need a crash course on couponing, you can find one here.
Without further ado, here’s the list!
