Good Things to Stock Up On

More stocking up ideas for your food and emergency storage.
I am a great fan of Dollar Stores.
Everything For $1
Family Dollar
Dollar General
Please don't turn your nose up at shopping at these discount stores as you can get really good bargains!
Always, but ALWAYS check expiration dates (that goes for anything you plan to put in long term storage!).
Here is a partial list of some items I have bought at the above named stores and found to be quite good/useful.
Lemon Juice
Sun Dried Tomatoes
Various Canned Meats (including the ever popular DAK hams!)
Band Aids
Sterno Fuel
Mini-Flashlights (perfect for tucking into a purse or back-pack)
Wash Cloths (have you seen those bundles of 10 or 15 for 5 bucks?)
Olive Oil
Small buckets (milk pails at farm store were $8.99, same sized bucket at dollar store $1.00. My goats do not seem to mind!)
Baking Soda
The list of useful items goes on and on! A lot of items end up being used daily here, other items end up in my long term storage. I make one trip per month and have a budget of $25.00 for what I will buy.
Check out your local discount/dollar store!

  1. I agree with you! I love the Dollar Store (that's the only one we have close). I have a list right now of what I need to stock up on: Bleach, toothpaste (they have name brands), dish soap, dishwasher detergent, baking soda, deoderant, etc, etc. etc. Great way to save and feel like I got my money's worth!


Because of a couple of rude people that left comments that included links to porn pages and such, I have been forced to start moderating comments again.
