Let me ask you a question. Would you rather pay $4.99 every time you needed a jar of peanut butter or only $1.69? Well, now I know the answer is obvious, but many people usually pay that first higher price. Of course, if a coupon or sale is available, they can take advantage of it, but that is only once in a while as the opportunity presents itself. So, once in a while they get a deal, but most of the time they pay more than they need to on grocery shopping.
Well, let me share a little grocery shopping secret with you, so you can always pay that lower price with no exception. They secret is to stockpile your own supply to last you until that next great opportunity.
Stockpiling isn’t as extreme as it might seem. We are not talking about having an entire bunker full of peanut butter, but having a pantry or a shelf that can accommodate a few jars will save you in the long run.
When you spot a great coupon, gather enough of them to purchase as many of the product as you will comfortably use before it expires or you get sick of it. This will vary according to your household. Then when you run out of a jar, you can simply go and “shop” for another one right in your pantry.
Stockpiling is a great technique to use in combination with shopping for loss leaders.
