Today's Grocery Trips- Stockpile Additions!!

I had a fabulous stockpiling grocery trip today! I posted weekly deals earlier this week but was still surprised when I put together my shopping plan this morning.  I believe that stockpiling is absolutely the best way to save on groceries.  A sale paired with a coupon means great savings.  I have to point out that I already have an established stockpile.  Not everyone can afford to add this many things to a stockpile in one week.  If you are new to stockpiling start slow.  Add one new thing to your stockpile at a time and soon you will have shopping trips like I did today. I bought only a few things that we actually needed right now and added lots of other things to my stockpile.
