Take a look at my stockpile – aka, my March/April stockpile. Those months are the months I earn the least from advertising, so I made sure to have more than me and my family of three need. Not shown is the bottom of my linen closet packed with tp and paper towels. 😉

Last year at this time, every cabinet shown was pretty bare aside from dishes, towels and linens. I spent a little less this year and using The Grocery Game and use of coupons. I did not buy more than one paper a week, nor have I spent more than I did last year.. yet I actually have completely FULL cupboards, fridge and freezer. 😀 I’m proud of myself for shopping more efficiently.
