Couponing Stock Pile Review

Everyone that knows me, know that I love coupons! Coupons are like money to me. When I use them I use them to get the most bang for buck, but I am not an extreme couponer. I think maybe at one time in my life I was a bit extreme about them, but I don't think I went overboard. I am not a shelf clearer. I believe in saving goods for others. I will not fight over an item, totally not worth my time. I don't argue with cashiers! If something does not ring up accurately I just take it to customer service. I follow the coupon policies, which have drastically change for the worse in the coupon world over the last 6 months! I am no longer at the point where I have to be the first one in the store whenever they do super double events. I have developed a rapport with most of the managers or cashier at the grocery stores I go to, and realized that everything they have at 5am, once the couponers dash in and ruin the store, they clean up restock and everything is back on the shelves by 6pm. So now I am more of a conservative, laid back couponer. I do go to The Super Double events but now, I usually do not go on the first day. If it is a week long coupon event and starts on a Wednesday, I know that everything will be back in stock by Saturday morning and that is usually when I will go. Recently I did a review of my Stock Pile and realized there are some things that I have not bought in over a year and I really mean bought. The majority of the items I got for FREE or less than $1 such as....

Reynolds Alumninum Foil
Aveeno, Dove, Dove for Men, Dial for Men, or Ivory bar soap
Hand washing Soft Soap
Dawn Dish washing liquid
Soft Soap, Nivea, Old Spice, Dove for Men, Dove, Aveeno, Caress, Gilette Body Wash
Degree Men/Women/Teen, Secret, Lady Speed Stick, Gilette Deodorant
Always, Tampax, Kotex & Carefree products,
Colgate Total, Aquafresh, Tooth paste
Listerine & Colgate Mouthwash
Rice, Sugar, Tea, Coffee, Cereal, Canned Goods, Salad dressing
Toothbrushes & Dental Floss
keri, Jergens, Lubriderm, Aveeno, Johnson Baby Lotion, Johnson Baby Oil
Tide, Purex, Surf, All, Gain Laundry Detergent
Downy & Gain Liquid & Unstoppable Fabric Softener
Oxiclean &Resolve
Tide Sticks
Neutrogena, Clean & Clear, Oil of Olay, Aveeno Facial Products
Make Up, Razors
Air Freshners, Carpet Cleaner, Lysol, Clorox, Baby Wipes
Tylenol, Advil, Childrens Tylenol, Childrens Advil, Zicam, Gas X, Pedia Care, Zyrtec, Vicks

To name a few items I remember off the top of my head. I am so well stocked on all of the products named above I will not need any for another year. Most do not expire until the end of 2013/2014.  Couponing is totally worth it, if you haven't started you need too!
