From a savings perspective, we weren’t able to save as much as we would have liked during this initial phase of building up our stockpile (typically 15% to 30%), but that didn’t stop us because the financial math was just too persuasive to be ignored. Once we had our stockpile in place, we only shopped sales with coupons, and routinely achieve savings of 50% to 80% on each shopping trip. We have been practicing this whenever possible, and our annual savings have consistently been in the range of $1,000 to $10,000.

stockpile groceries to save money
Perhaps you are thinking that this sounds like just too much work to get started. I have to admit that it did to me 18 years ago. Let me ask you to look at it this way:1) Estimate the total amount you spend in the supermarket each year;

2) Take 35% to 50% of that total as savings that can be easily achieved by stockpiling and using sales and coupons; and

3) Calculate how many times you can fill up your cars gas tank at a price of $3 per gallon using the money you would save at the supermarket.
