We save what we can by stockpiling. Basically if something is on sale at a very good price if you have the cash you buy a few extra to “stockpile” until you need it.
Sometimes my stockpiling can cause my family some embarrassment. For example at Dollar General after Christmas they had everything 75% off so I purchase all the hand soap they had on discount. Not a big deal to me but seeing Santa or a snowman next to the sink in July is not cool with Daughter. There is a way around everything, just cut the cute little wrapper off.
The soap is red but in her mind far better than a snowman sitting by the sink. And I am happy since I paid around $.50 per soap. We have enough soap to last us until July.
