 What are some goals you have for the new coming year for getting items into your storage?

I need some more body wash for my son

I plan to stock up on some more meats and so forth

My goal is to only have to go to the store once a month next year not only to save from impulse buys but to also save on gas money!!

im not stockpiling anything right now since we will be moving sometime next year and the less stuff we have to move the better...if not i would also stockpile more non perishables...

I'd have to buy a 2nd fridge to stock up on all the fresh veggies and eggs I'd need for a month, otherwise I'll be pretty set here on beef and poultry.  I need to get another whole hog when they're ready.  I'd love to stock up on 50 lb. of almond meal, about 10 lb. of coconut flour, a couple of cases of coconut milk, and a case of butter.  I may need a few more cans of tomato sauce, but otherwise I'm all set.

Oh, and I want a better-producing garden next summer so that I can preserve more veggies!  I have saved seeds for beans, peas, spaghetti squash, zucchini, and cucumbers.  I may have leftover seeds for beets, carrots, kale, lettuces, and tomatoes, but I really need to buckle down and check.

 I don't do massive stock piling.   I do buy things when I get a good deal that we use on a regular basis.   I only shop 2 times a month for regular grocery's.    Dh and I goal for 2013 is to eat heatlhier.  We did pretty good this year but have room for improvement.

I don't stockpile so do not have plans. Good luck though!

I don't stockpile either.

I used to stockpile when I was with my ex but now that it's just myself & my four year old I have not been stockpiling. 

Things that I usually do stockpile on (I'm also trying to detox the house a bit now as well) were juice boxes, cereal, pasta, sauces, toiletpaper, laundry detergent, papertowels, bubbles, shampoo, soups, etc.

We don't stockpile here-just not enough room! There are a few things I like to have on hand though: extra loaves of bread (I can freeze it); inexpensive steaks (I can get some really nice cuts the last day they're  on sale for less than half price!); fries; toilet paper (nothing says I Love You like having extra TP!); and perhaps a few household staples (vinegar! baking soda!) that I'll make into cleaning products. Our goal for next year is to eat healthier-I think I'm pre-diabetic, and Jim's a bit overweight according to the VA. We often shop only once every two weeks, when he's paid.

I'm pretty stocked right now.  So, no real plans for anything in particularat the moment.  Not to say that I'd pass up a great deal on something we'd definitely use in the future, however.  LOL.
