This is a list of everyday items to keep on hand. There are several reasons you may want to stock up on things like toilet paper, paper towels, shampoo, an deodorant. However, no matter why you want to stock up this list can guide you to building a great hoard of everyday items.
Why Stock Up On Everday Items?
One reason to keep well stocked on these items is you can separate your budget for household goods and groceries. This can be helpful especially when you on a budget. If you take a few hundred dollars out of your taxes or saving and buy a year’s worth of your everyday items.
This will give you more money throughout the year to buy groceries.
Another reason to stock up is to be prepared for disasters like hurricanes. You never know will a disaster will strike. Having food, water, toilet paper, and other everyday items is a great way to be prepared! My hurricane preparedness checklist is free if you want to see a list of things to stock up on specifically for that kind of disaster.
Some items may have an expiration date, or a sell by date. It’s important that you don’t buy too much of your everyday items at once. Don’t buy more than you think you’ll use before the expiration date. Other items like paper towels and toilet paper, obviously don’t expire, so buy as much as you want. However, be careful storing too much paper and attracting rodents.
