The 2015 Stockpiling Challenge: I’ll Pay For Your Purchases!

stockpile shopping series

It’s a new year! Time to rededicate ourselves to saving money!

If you’ve been following along on Moms by Heart for a while, you might have heard of our $10 Per Week Stockpiling Challenge.  During this challenge, we spent 12 months dedicating ourselves to filling our pantry with rock-bottom deals. Well the challenge is back on, but this year we’re doing things a little differently.

Rather than $10 a week, I’m challenging you to spend $40 per month on this endeavor. I heard from many readers last time who said they were so busy,  that it was hard to keep a weekly commitment.  So hopefully with the way this challenge is set up, you’ll be able to squeeze in one or two couponing trips per month and still see the savings and benefits of stockpiling!

So here’s my challenge to you:

  • Commit yourself to a $40/month stockpiling budget.
  • Shop at the stores we cover here on MomsbyHeart: Target, Walmart, Walgreens & CVS.
  • Use your funds to purchase shelf-stable foods, freezer foods, paper goods, personal care items and cleaning products and avoid the snack foods and sugary beverages.
  • Snap a picture of your monthly haul along with a list of coupons you used and send it to
  • I’ll choose one winner per month and PAY FOR YOUR STOCKPILE!  Yup. One person every month will receive a $40 gift card to Target, Walmart, CVS or Walgreens. Your choice.

You must be 18 years or older to participate. Void where prohibited. One winner will be chosen per month using You may enter (and win) once every month from January to December 2015. Winners will receive an egift card to the store of their choice: Target, Walmart, Walgreens or CVS. As a participant, when you submit your photo and list of deals, you are giving permission for MomsbyHeart to publish them here on the blog so others can be inspired. Winners will be announced the following month on MomsbyHeart. Only ethical coupon scenarios will be considered. Please follow store coupon policies, thanks!

So start shopping and saving, and maybe YOU could get it all for FREE!
