If you’re new to the world of extreme couponing, you may be wondering what all this talk of “stocking” is about. “Stockpiles” and “stock-up prices” make us sound like a bunch of doomsday preppers. Not the case.

Or maybe you’re just looking for the prices?



Stock Up (verb)

The act of strategically overbuying sale items by anticipating your household’s needs for the next 3-6 months.

Your favorite cereal is one dollar a box after coupons at your local grocery store. Are you gonna buy more than one or two boxes? Of course you are! But, how many should you buy?

As recognized retail experts, you can trust us when we promise you that prices, promotions, and coupons all cycle regularly. Meaning, if cereal is only $1 per box this week, you can bet that within about 3 months, we’ll see a similar sale again. So there’s no need to dig out a basement to fill with 10,000 boxes, mkay? Buy enough to last you 3-6 months.
