6 Great Reasons To Stockpile If you are an extreme couponer, you will understand the principles behind stockpiling. If you ever needed a good reason to start stockpiling – here are 6.
1. Save Money Buying something you don’t need right now is a great way to save money. If you have a coupon for an item that drastically reduces the price of that item, use it and buy the product – even if you don’t need it immediately. If you don’t use the coupon, there may come a time when you need that item and it is not on sale and you don’t have a coupon to use. Rather buy and stockpile items at reduced prices and when you do need them, you can just take it from your stockpile. Never having to pay full price for an item is the goal of every extreme couponer.
2. Protect Against Catastrophes If you can build up your stockpile in a way that makes you completely self-sufficient, you will be prepared to face any type of natural disaster or even war should they occur. In fact, you may even be in a position to help others should something unforeseen happen.
3. Beat Fluctuating Food Prices There are so many factors that can influence food prices so it is always a good idea to be prepared. Being prepared by having a stockpile protects you against the unavailability of food or steep price hikes that are unpredictable at the best of times.
4. Protection Against Soaring Gas prices If there is one thing that everyone knows it is this; the price of oil directly influences the price of food. By building a stockpile you can protect yourself from soaring food prices in the event of truck drivers going on strike or gas prices rising drastically. Buying products while they are at their lowest prices means you will not have to pay inflated prices if these situations ever arise.
5. Safeguard Against Unemployment Nothing in life is ever guaranteed; you always need to plan for the future. Building a stockpile is a great way of making sure your family can survive for an extended period of time if you suddenly lose your www.extremecouponingtips.org
monthly income. There are a variety of triggers that could decrease your monthly income; pay cuts, job loss, disability or illness to mention a few.
6. To Provide Support For Others When you have built up a great stockpile, there will always be products that you can donate to others less fortunate than yourself. There are a multitude of people that need help so look at reaching out to local shelters, food banks and churches. Always remember to share your good fortune. With stockpiling you are essentially preparing for anything the future can throw at you. The peace of mind you will get from knowing you are prepared is invaluable.
