    redring,
    The way I have been stock piling TP , I collect coupons and watch the sale ads--and match this way for the best deals. Also I check the mark down isles, sometimes they have open packages that they have taped up. And they mark these down as well..With a coupon this is a real deal to me..
    When I go shopping this weekend --- I have to stop at my local Kroger Store -- And this is one of the deals I'll be going after...
    The Kroger stores in my area double coupons, so a $0.50 coupon is worth $1 off my register receipt. Cottonelle 4-packs are priced at $0.99, so that makes them FREE after a doubled $0.50 coupon or a $1 coupon! And if I take someone with me they will have a cart and coupons also...So a stocking I'm doing..
    The stock pile doesn't grow over night -- I have maybe 6 packs on hand right now. It all takes time.

    There are always specials on TP so it is fairly easy to pick up a package or more each month as finances permit.

    A bigger issue perhaps is storing your TP since it is by nature designed to disintegrate in moisture. I store mine in those jumbo vacuum storage bags designed for pillows and blankets, etc. This protects the TP from moisture and other deterioration. When the SHTF you may find that TP is worth its weight in gold.

    You should be getting the Sunday paper for coupons each week (except for holidays) and if there are more than one major paper in your area, check them both and see if one has more coupon offers than the other.

    Definitely get coupons online, but do it from official sources. Lots of counterfeits out there, especially on high value *free* coupons. Check your grocery store for a website and coupon offers. Same with all of the major products you buy.....like Charmin TP. Many will even email you when they have promotions and coupons.

    And the biggest of all -- not to be abused -- is commenting directly to the companies on how good or bad their product is. If its real on your part they often will send you coupons for free products. They want you as a customer.

    My local newspaper has the coupons in the Thursday paper, then one from a larger city has the coupons on Sunday. I love it, get my local paper Thursday to see what the coupons are to know whether or not to get the one of Sunday .

    Yup, and a lot of people do not think about it until its gone and suddenly when there is none to be had in the stores it becomes very valuable to get some at whatever the cost.

    Just the reason I decided I should start stocking. We run out often and end up makeing a run to the wall mart close. Then it ends up... TP, ice cream, frozen pizza, movie, ect. Buys we dont really need and are more expensive beacuse they were not planned. My worst enemy is the pastry section. I am an addict. Worst Part is given time i can make everything I buy for dollars less.

    It's nice to hear someone else has that problem. I complain to the cashier everytime that I went in for 1 or 2 items, even show her my shopping note, and I walk out with 2 or 3 bagfuls. Fortunately all for my preps, but still.......

    according to the gerocery guide Super walmart has angelsoft for $1 12 rolls. Sounds insane but I will look today. Angelsoft also has a cupon for .50 . I plan to get Dh to try and download one too so We can pick up two. Ill have to remember to walk over to the gass station sunday and get a papper. I need more cupons!!!! 24 rolls for a buck is good I think.



    OH! wanted to add the gerocery guide button for find cupon did not find any cupons but the cupon guide had the cupon listed. Not sure if thats a glitch.



    Gerocery guide was wrong for my area. Super wall mart did not have angelsoft 12 pack for a doller they dident even have a 4 pack for a dollar. back to the drawing bord.....

    Wish my Kroger still carried Cottonelle 4 packs, used to get it free with 50cent Q's, they no longer have it available in my area, are now stocking 4 pack of Angel Soft, but the only Q's I'm finding are for 6 packs. Bummer. Have been getting Scotts lately, lots of $1 Q's for that and FL has been running it for 4.99 for a 12 pack, but it's like sandpaper and DH won't use it. Best price I can find in my area on good TP is 5.99 for 12 pk Charmin Ultra Soft, and sometimes there is a 25 cent Q for it. So not much stockpiling on tp around my house.

    My kids come home occasionally and raid my pantry and take the TP home with them and I always keep several month's supply on hand. Run in after they've been here and can't find any??? Arg! No trips to town for me! Use the old phone books to get by on! Girls want to hide the TP when the boys come home for a visit! Got it stashed in 3 different places now so they never clean us out again!
