I do love maintaing a stockpile. It saves us so much time and saves me so much energy. But sometimes I do catch myself stockpiling some of the strangest things. They are usually things that we do use quite a bit, but to the eye of another stockpiler, they may seem quite peculiar.
Take a look at my current stockpile of almond and coconut milk. There was a great deal at one of my local stores that made each carton a little over a dollar after coupons and rolled catalinas. For us, that is a stockpile-worthy price since this is all that Sonny can drink and use with his cereal. Since school has started, I know this stockpile will dwindle way before any of it expires but I know I don’t have to buy it anymore until it does run out. Plus, we don’t have anymore room in the fridge for more!
Now to another stockpiler, they may see it as a “cool” stockpile but would never think to ever use up their “real estate” for alternative milks. Hence, they would see it as strange. It’s a staple here, but definitely not in all houses. It’s the same way I look at others’ stockpile of paper towels. We don’t use them anymore, but I still look in awe at the big stockpiles of them for households that utilize paper towels. I wouldn’t have any idea where I would keep a stockpile like that if I was ever able to grow one. It’s all relative.
Do any of you stockpile something that others might see as strange, but your household can’t live without?
