Extreme Couponing Tip: Stockpiling in Small Spaces
If you’re low on extra space, don’t wait until you have enough room for a one-year supply of food and personal items. Below are some possible solutions of where to store your extra items.
- Location ideas
- Under beds & cribs (in locking totes for the latter)
- Below sinks
- Shelving above the washer & dryer
- Under tables & desks
- Storage cubes in tall bookshelves
- Porch or balcony
- In suitcases
- Tall dressers
- Over-the-Door hanging shoe organizers, great for small items like:
- hair ties
- unopened razors
- trial size items
- fingernail polish
- Small set of drawers for couch or bedside table
- Peg board w/hooks, great for anything that hangs:
- packages of batteries
- cough drops
- cotton swabs, etc.
- Hang a chain from the ceiling and clip on bagged products (chips, dry soup mixes, crackers, dried fruit, nuts, cookies, etc).
- Linen, coat, and bedroom closets
- Build Your Ownwith these materials that work well:
- PVC tubing
- milk crates
- even cardboard (see this post for how one of our readers, Meghan, did hers)
- Second hand: Craigslist, garage/moving sales, thrift stores
- Home improvement stores: pair with coupons found in change of address packs at the Post Office.
- Online: sites, like RetailMeNot.com, have a lot of current Internet codes for coupons and promos, which you can apply to online orders from thousands of sites.
