Do you have a stockpile? If so, share a pic!

Feel free to let us in on any secrets you have to building a great stockpile!

LOL I have a small start to a stockpile to. I don't want to be a hoarder like some of those ladies on EC, but my goal is to get a good stockpile together to accomplish 3 things:

1. Have some extras handy for us...in case we have a tight budget every now and again.

2. Help my sister start a small stockpile for herself. She will be out on her own soon, and I am teaching her to coupon and find great deals. She loves it. Between college and work, things will be tight for her, so I want her to have some extras, and know how to replenish.

3. I would love to donate (maybe to tornado or flood victims, or the local battered womens shelter)

I will post pics when I get it all in one central location! LOL Its here and there right now!

 Ok I dont have alot of room to have a stockpile like on the show (would love it though) I have a starter stockpile in my bathroom.These were taken a month or so ago and I have more items now but some stuff is around my washer & dryer area and I havent taken any pictures of my kistchen products like DW tabs,liquid. I will try to get it organized soon and update the pics.

This is overflowing now and I dont think I paid over $1.00 for the ones that I didnt get free.

the shelf with the womens products is completely full now.lol Like I said this was taken a few months ago.lol

The only thing I really have a stockpile of is detergant, shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste and toothbrushes.  I always pick that stuff up when it is on clearance and using coupons makes it almost free.  Detergent as of right now I can probably get away with not buying any until maybe after the first of the year.  Crazy yes, but when it is on sale I buy up.  I really like purex and era.  Right now I have a coupon for Purex that would make a 33 load bottle 3.99 and I got Era for 4.99 for their 40 load bottle.  I am slow getting my stockpile up.  Oh and I have more Powerade than you can shake a stick at.  Our local grocery store has it for 2 @ $1 and I have been buying at least 10 everytime I got in.  My whole bottom shelf in our pop/juice fridge is FULL.
