Tips For Stocking Up When You Live In A Small Home

stock up
When you live in a small house, your number one priority should be keeping the “stuff” to a minimum. Believe me, I know. With 3 people living in a 2 bedroom apartment, all it takes is one overzealous shopping trip to make close living quarters even more tight. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t stock up, though. Purchasing items in bulk, or when they’re on sale whether you need it now or not, is a great way to save the money that you’ll need to move into a bigger place! Since Sunday, March 29th- Thursday, April 30th, 2015 is the Stock Up & Save Sale at Walmart, and I was able to purchase some of my favorite P&G products at amazing prices, I asked my online community for some tips  on stocking up in a small space.

Here are the top 5 tips:

  • Store things under your beds so that they’re out of sight.
  • Put products in unused suitcases and bags.
  • Be creative with your cabinets. If you have an empty cabinet in the kitchen, use it for extra paper towels.
  • Take products out of packages and store them in various nooks and crannies rather than all in the same place.
  • Make sure you ONLY stock up on products that you’re definitely going to use.

Whether you live in a small house or a mansion, you definitely want to make sure you head over to Walmart to stock up before the sale is over. In addition to paper goods, you can also get great deals on LUVS, Pampers, and Always brand products.
