My Personal Stock-up Prices

One of the things I have learned in my couponing adventure is what I am willing to pay for items in my stockpile. Everyone's stock-up price points are going to differ slightly just because I may be willing to pay more or won't pay as much as someone else. If you are brand loyal, for example, your prices may be a little higher. It is all about learning what you are willing to pay and then looking for a good deal!

Here is a list of my personal stock-up prices to get you started:

Expensive deodorant (Mitchum, Old Spice, etc.)
