Thanks to couponing, I have gotten this huge stack of TP for less than $75-- more than 360 rolls or .20 each. My husband wants to work for the helicopter contractor in Beeville instead of the Army Depot. Since, this will mean a cut off his driving time daily -- savings of two hours; I support him. However, I am also aware if the contractor has layoffs. The general rule of thumb -- last hired is first fired in the civilian world. That is okay too since with a 'stockpile' finding a job is less stressful when supplies are plentiful but cash is not. Does anyone else do this or am I an over eager suvivalist?
I have the sickness, so far my list of surplus is:
20 tubes of Toothpaste cost was only $7.80 vice $25
30 (100 oz) Purex/All Detergent $75 vice $150
(I also have supplies on hand to make homemade laundry soap for 800 loads for only $20.)
15 bottles of shampoo for $8 vice $18.75
40 lbs of pinto beans for $7.00
20 lbs assorted 1 lb beans for $15.80
100 lbs of rice for $11.00
12 lbs pasta for $6.86
We have a pantry fully stocked, deep freezer full, and hopefully with our garden being planted. All will be set until whenever.
A dollar saved brings us to owning our home out right quicker. Our plan is to have our house which we purchased in 2005 paid off by 2015. I hate owing money to anyone. No mortgage means more freedom....... I hope I hope I hope~!
