Head over HERE to read all about the $10 Per Week Stockpiling Challenge. In a nutshell, we are creating a list of non-perishables, personal and home care items and setting a goal to have a 6-12 month supply on hand by the end of the year.  Our weekly budget is $10.  And here’s the important part.  We’re using $10 the real way.  Not $40 spent with $30 back in store rewards.  We have one single ten dollar bill and we’re using it to see how much we can walk out of the store with.  This is important, because plenty of folks just don’t have $30 or $40 to play around with each week, even if they get it back in rewards.  We want to encourage folks that stockpiling can be done, even if the budget is super-tight.

If you decide to take the challenge, you are welcome to send a photo and a list of your stockpile purchases to momsbyheart at gmail dot come.  If I use it on the blog you will be entered for a chance to win a $20 Amazon gift card. I’ll randomly choose one winner each month, and you may enter as often as once a week.

    I got cough drops, cheez-its, soft soap, dish soap, and and extra candle all for just under 10 bucks! I love this idea! Thanks for sharing!
    (ps- so sad, my Dollar Tree only had small Speed Sticks, which are excluded on the coupons I had :-( oh well, maybe next time! )

  2. This is fun to watch each week! You are inspiring and made quite a dent in your stockpile list in only 1 month. Amazing!
