My $10 Stockpile Shopping Trip Week 8

Last week I was left with $6.85 cash and a $5 Savingstar credit, which appeared in my account just two days after my purchase! So I started out today with $6.85 + $5 from Savingstar, along with my $10 budget for this week = $21.85. I headed to CVS first.

(2) Crest Complete Whitening with Scope 2.7 oz. toothpaste @ $2.87 = $5.74
-$3 off $15 from the Magic Coupon Machine (printed last week, still valid)

I made a quick run into Target for the FREE Heinz Ketchup. Since there is a limit of one coupon per visit, I had my hubby with me to buy one of them.

$2 Target printable, used two
Final Price: FREE

Next stop was Walmart:

(6) Red Gold Diced Tomatoes @ $0.79 = $4.74

Here’s what I got for my nine bucks:

(32) loads Laundry Detergent
(2) Dish Liquid
(3) Toothpaste

The frozen veggies are not on my stockpile list but they were free so I snagged them anyway.

All of this was accomplished with no more than $10 per week out of pocket.  My goal is to have all items on my stockpile list in my pantry by December 31st using coupons, sale prices, store rewards and this modest budget.  You can do it too!


  1. I have been viewing your blog for several years without commenting. Good job! How did you pick your stockup items and the amounts? Is it enough for a year? I like the idea of look what you can accomplish with just ten dollars!!!

    • Hi Marianne – Yes, I estimated how much my family would need for one year and those are my goals. For food items it is 6 months.
