I remember when we helped my grandma clean out her basement, we found bags and bags of empty prescription bottles and stacks of empty egg cartons. I have no idea why she kept them.But for me, I can't think of anything right now, but I remember the night before the year 2000 rolled around, I was scared. I was sitting on the couch holding Owen (he was only a month old) waiting for the clock to strike midnight to see what happened. Nothing did! We survived too.
Chocolate Caramel Cluster Zone Bars.May I never be without one.
LOL. That's funny that the residual effect of that crazy thing still affects us. I don't think I really hoard anything like that. Ye old grocery budget doesn't really allow for that. But I do buy the honkin' big size of toilet paper.
I would have to say a whole lot of tolet paper, or it will run out.my hubby is always stocking on can food and it drives me crazy I don't know what to do with all the can's of pea's why pea's I don't know.marina
coffee beans!! I hoard coffee beans! Ya just never know when a good bag of coffee beans will come in handy!
It's not so much hoarding as I get tired of buying it all the time if I don't buy the mega size quantities. But I buy at least the 8-roll pack of paper towells, 24-roll (double rolls at that) of toilet tissue, and mouthwash several liters at a time for my hubby's waterpik.
Is that great value papertowels? I've never tried them. I do some cheap three-packer. I don't hoard this anymore BUT...years ago when I drank Pepsi, I would buy it anytime it was $5/case or $2.50/12pk. I had at least 15 cases at any time in my gargage. Of course this was for a family of two...it wasn't just me. This had nothing to do with Y2K but rather refusing to pay more than $5/case. I couldn't tell what a case of soda costs now. This was in 1995.I haven't had a regular soda in 10 years!!! Diet for me, save those calories for something filling or at least tastie like dessert!
Candy. My mother successfully passed on that genetic mutation. I know I still have Halloween candy from 2007 in the house -- yet I buy more.
Bath products. I could probably start a whole Bath and Body and VS warehouse from my overstocks....
I prefer the name Stocker. If it is on sale, I buy multitudes.When Walker and were barely married, I came across his brand of deodorant for a crazy low price and bought about 25 of them. He made fun of me, showed them to his friends....but hey, I kept him sweet smelling and deodorized for a good year for about $20. Who's laughin now, baby.At the moment, I have a freezer full of organic milk. Why? Because I found it on sale for $2 a gallon, that's why. That's GOLD. I bought 20 of them. Lots of stares at Kroger.Bring on Armageddon, I say. We will be fresh and fortified.
Baby Wipies. I buy the big box from Costco. 'Cause that's one thing you don't want to run out of around here. Linda, I received the book yesterday....thank you SO much! I am almost done with it, just have a few more chapters. Reading a new book is one of my very favorite things, so I'm loving it!
Blank Journals, pens, first aid supplies, and tampons.Right before Y2K I also had about 20 of the big jugs of water and a couple of cases of chicken noodle soup (my son's favorite.). I still try to keep back up on the water but we are getting pretty tired of chicken noodle soup.
I'm laughing... toilet paper and distilled water...
Enviga (berry and/or peach flavor)-intentionally because it is so hard to find. Shampoo- unintentionally, there just always seem to be 3 or 4 different kinds sitting in the cabinet plus a couple in the shower?
