Yes, I’m a hoarder. I won’t deny it. Nobody in my family minds. They’re actually quite supportive about it. Now don’t get me wrong. I don’t hoard old stuff. I hoard new stuff. Check out the photos below.
These are my son’s wipes. We have antibac wipes, baby wipes and hand and mouth wipes. The Hello Kitty packs on the side are facial tissues. I got them all for free with the Giggles baby wipes. The antibac wipes I got 2 + 1. I no longer have to buy facial tissues for myself for around 6 months or more because of the number I have in my stockpile. Both my son and I benefit from this drawer.
Believe it or not, I have a method to my madness. I only hoard stuff if I can save money or get a good deal. Here’s more..
These are my son’s diapers. If I get the biggest bag, I get 8 free. I searched the supermarkets to get the best deal and I got it at S&R. We seldom go to S&R now because of the baby so I took advantage of it and got a couple of bags. I’m hoping this stock will last us until the end of the year. I save money on our grocery bill and on gas.
These are boxed tissues. They’re actually not on sale or anything. I just like buying one month’s supply at the beginning of each month. I don’t like going back and forth to the store and I especially don’t like running out at an inconvenient time.
Under the boxed tissues are paper towels. I have a ton of those because they rarely go on sale. I got a buy 3 get 1 free deal. I estimate that we won’t have to buy paper towels until February.
I also have these Breeze laundry detergent which I got on BOGO. I no longer have to buy detergent for one year! I also have matching fabric conditioners but my supply is running low on that and there are no good deals in the groceries yet.
I also like buying my toiletries. I have several jars of my favorite lulur scrub. I got them at BOGO and they will last me probably until summer or longer.
Lastly, my favorite curling lotion from Monea. They are always out of stock so I buy around 3 bottles at a time. I found a few lurking in my toiletries drawers when I took inventory after I gave birth.
I have a few more stuff in my stockpile that includes toothbrush, more facial tissues, cotton, lotion, bar soaps, etc. I got them all either on sale or on BOGO or I got a really great deal on them (like Php99 for 3 toothbrushes and 16 packs of facial tissues).
So, yeah.. I’m a hoarder and my family couldn’t be happier about it. But there’s just the problem of space though. = )
