Frugalistas Frugalistas

I have a 1 yr old and another baby due in December. I coupon shop and already have a small stock pile of personal hygeine and household products. My goal is to have at least a 3 month supply of these things so we won't be quite so tight on money after the baby is born.. Plus, it'll save me some trips to town :)

Here's what I have (or am close to having) a 3 month supply of so far:
Shampoo, Conditioner, Body Wash, Bar Soap, Deodorant, Razors, Shaving Cream, Feminine products, Toothpaste, Floss, Dish detergent, Laundry detergent, Fabric Softener, Hand Soap, Paper Towels, Toilet Paper, Diapers for my 1 yr old, Wipes for both, and Baby wash. 

Can you think of anything else that I might be forgetting? This might sound crazy to some, but I just want to relax and be stress free as much as possible after the baby is born. I had to go back to work immediately after DS1 was born and I don't want that stress this time around.

a few minor things:  cotton balls, vitamins, pain reliever for adults and infants, Lysol (thinking it'll be cold & flu season), cough meds....just check your medicine cabinet over.

That is great thinking head about getting products. Nice not to have to worry about those.How about. Stocking up on some Kleenex? We always seem to need some and all out!

Kleenex....we're always running out!

I didn't want to stock up for the newborn since I won't know how much of what size to buy.. Plus, I'm counting on getting a good bit at the baby shower. So I'll wait until the baby is born and stock up a little here and there.

Diapers for the newborn?

Cloth diapers, mama pads, freeze meals, make convenience foods before baby & freeze. Also you might stock up on shaving cream.
