Stocking up on sale items works for prepping too

When items are on sale, you’ve got coupons or it’s just a great deal, we tend to grab a few extra to stock up for our pantry or bathroom. Think outside the box and think about grabbing some extra items for your B.O.B or survival kit as well.
I’ve listed just a few items that you should grab more than one of if you see a great deal or sale. Not only can you use these now, but they are also items you’ll want to add to your Bug Out Bag or in-home kit:
  • Baking Soda and Vinegar: These two items are a dynamic duo. Use for cleaning, deodorizing, even unclogging drains. 
  • 5 Gallon buckets and containers with lids: These stack and store easily, and can have numerous uses. Having a variety of Tupperware containers also help when storing items that need to be waterproof
  • Cotton Balls/Q-Tips/Toilet Paper: in addition to normal toiletry items, these can be used in fire-starting or wound care.
  • Toothbrushes and Toothpaste. Keeping your teeth in good shape will be even more important when dentists might not be available than it is now.
  • First Aid Kits: You can never have too many. Grab these in various sizes. Most come with emergency blankets, band-aids and anti-bacterial wipes, even road flares if it is a car first-aid kit.
  • Light Sources & Batteries: Have a supply of flashlights (LEDs provide the longest battery life), headlamps and lanterns with backup batteries.
  • Baby supplies: Cloth diapers, Pedialyte and baby asprin are more than just for kids.
  • Laundry Detergent/Various Soap: These items have a long shelf-life and will always be in demand for washing, cleaning or disinfecting items.

In order to save the most amount of money, you want to stock up when things are at their rock bottom prices. Insider tip: Pay close attention to these sales. Everything you buy is usually at it’s absolute lowest price once every 3 months. So, if you stock up a 3 months supply of something, you won’t be forced to overpay on that item and can get by until the item goes back on sale.
