Stocking up on foods, toiletries and other household goods while they’re on sale is a smart way to avoid paying retail for the products that you use on a regular basis. Here’s a printable list of items that you should consider stockpiling.

It includes non-perishable groceries, toiletries, cleaning supplies, OTC medications, paper and plastic products, household goods, pet supplies and more.

If something you buy isn’t on the list, just write it in. There’s plenty of room for you to add any items you need to.

The Best Time to Stock Up

Most grocery stores follow a six-week sales cycle, which means once every six weeks you can expect the items you buy to go on sale. Track prices over time, and you’ll soon recognize when it’s time to stock up. Aim to buy enough product to get you to the next sale, so you never have to pay full-price.

Many foods also have one time of year when they hit their absolute lowest price. This is usually tied to a particular holiday or season. If you have the space, it’s smart to buy a year’s worth of these products. Here are some examples:

  • Baking supplies – cheapest around Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter
  • Condiments – cheapest in the summer

  1. Very good advice! I’ve just found your website-great job! Still perusing so pardon if the following is here some where and I haven’t found it yet…
    Also use websites like Vitacost.com for lots of sales on supplements and they have all kinds of food and toiletries etc. Buy $50 and get free 2 day shipping. They almost always have a 15% off deal, periodically 20% off everything you buy, food sales etc. Their brand gets lots of sales too.
    Check out azurestandard.com for all sizes of pantry staples from a pound to 50 lb bags at a discount. Azure ships either UPS, or much less expensive, to a local drop site (check the map for closest by you) by a refrigerated 18 wheeler. We get GF items, dairy free coconut ice cream, organic watermelon and cherries, oatmeal, toiletries, plant starts…all kinds of stuff. We’ve just tried Rhea’s herbal extractions with great success. They also have periodic sale prices. We get cases of einkorn pasta and stock up in the winter so we don’t have to go out on the icy roads. Love Azure. Great small company with lots of organics, and regular stuff too.
    Sometimes your local store has a website where they’ll ship as well and have a cheaper price online than in the store…or sometimes vice versa. And coupons you can sign up for online.
