Once you’ve learned the basics of how to start using coupons at the grocery store, it’s time to start saving some money and build up a stockpile of groceries in your home. If you’re new to couponing and building your stockpile, there are a few things to consider. DealPro Stephanie Brandt from DebtFreeSpending.com talks about having a good stockpile, how to store it and how to stock up. Watch her video below:
1. Be careful buying more than you need, because you don’t want stuff to go bad before you can use it.
2. Always bring older items to the front in your pantry so that you are using items in the order they were bought. This helps you avoid losing items because they expire.
3. Keep in mind that most grocery item sales run on a 4-6 week sale cycle. So buy at least enough to get you to the next sale cycle.
4. Always use proper storage methods when storing food items.
5. Don’t have room? Non-perishable goods can be stored under beds, in closets and various other places. Be creative!
