    For diapers I will not pay more then .17 per diaper but stock up around .10-.11. For baby wipes I wont pay more then .017 per wipe but try to pay less then that. Thank you for all your help!

    Has this changed at all? Since you’ve posted it?

      Thank you for the comment. It’s still accurate. The only big change I would make is ground beef stock up would now be $2.49/lb. I will update this in the next few weeks and add a few more items to the list.

    Thanks so much! Can’t wait to see the updates! Also, on some of the items, what size of product (ie. ketchup, mustard, etc.)?

    Do these prices apply to any brand? For instance, for deodorant the stock up price is free, is that for a brand like Secret or Suave which is typically a less expensive brand…or are there just more sales/coupons for the pricier brands? Same for laundry detergent (Tide vs. a less expensive brand? is there a stock up price for laundry detergent?)

      These prices are for the lowest price on any brand for that item. If you are brand loyal, your stock up price for those items may be higher than the ones listed here. Laundry detergent stock up price is $0.03/ounce or less.

    How do you get jumbo pack if diapers for 4?

    Reply
    • Nicole December 10, 2014, 9:44 am

      CVS and Walgreens typically since you can stack coupons. For example, CVS will run specials and when you buy $30 in diapers you get $10 back in ECB. Then I add manufacturer savings and any CVS store coupons to save even more. I teach how to shop the drugstores in my basic coupon class or the information is also in my book ‘The Extraordinary Art of Couponing’.

    I’m new to this. Is this the price after coupons?

    What shampoo and deodorant is for the stock piles and where do I go for the deals? I took two years off from couponing and I’m trying to get back in the swing of things but its all so confusing now.

      Typically I find the best deals on toiletries at CVS or Walgreens. 🙂

    So just for learning purposes…
    is July 2014 at the top of this post the date you established these stockpile prices? just wondering if the month had anything particular or if these changed for you based on season.

    Also, for example, you list your baking chip stockpile price at 1.00, but on this week’s shopping list you put hyvee baking chips at 1.67 in red, which would indicate stockpile price, is it because it is close enough to your stockpile price?

    Final question, on the weekly lists if a stockpile list is in red and has coupons listed, does it meet the stockpile threshold based on the sale price or the price after coupons.

    So thankful for all you do and only asking the questions to learn, so I hope you don’t read them as criticism! You have been a blessing to me with this site!

      Yes, stockpile prices do fluctuate based on season and baking items in particular hit those super low prices during the holidays. When I highlight for the stockpile prices each week I am looking at trends in the past few months and pinpointing the lowest prices I’ve seen on that particular item within the past 3 months. Most products hit a lowest prices about every 3-4 months and those are the prices I highlight so we can pick up enough to get us through to the next sale. And, the stockpile price is based on cost AFTER coupons are applied. I hope that answers your questions. Let me know if you have any more questions 🙂

    Can someone explain to me how to get the items listed so cheap or for free? I don’t understand the couponing or free things. I would love to be able to get these prices and free things for myself and my daughters who both have children in diapers. We are all on a tight budget and trying to stretch money as much as possible. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you, Angie

      Angie, If you are in the Omaha area, I teach coupon classes regularly. Here is my schedule http://www.momsavesmoney.net/classes. Or, you can check out my book, ‘The Extraordinary Art of Couponing’ on Kindle, Nook or iTunes.

    Do you use a price book?

    Reply
    • Nicole December 30, 2015, 12:12 pm

      I don’t personally, but that’s only because I’ve been shopping deals for the last decade and it’s all in my head now.

      A price book would be very helpful if you are just starting out though!

      Hi Laura! Glad you found my website. 🙂 If you follow my weekly Omaha grocery lists I will highlight the stockpile deals in red (super easy.) Basically, the stockpile price listed is your out of pocket cost after you apply your coupons. Hope that helps.
