Stocking Up At Boxed

October 3rd, 2019 at 10:58 pm

I really don't stock up on things when I shop. Occasionally, if I see a really good deal, I will pick up extras. I guess I just like to know that I am only spending what I need, and not any more, and not any less.

This time of year I often stock up on personal care items and household goods to cut down on the need to keep up on having these things on hand during the busyness of the holidays.

I already bought the Halloween candy that we will hand out when Target had a 40% off Cartwheel offer last week. It's in the freezer and I haven't been tempted once!

Today, I bought quite a few things at the commissary. Toilet paper, tissues, Vitamin C, bar soap, dishwasher detergent, trash bags, dish soap, Bar Keepers Friend, toothpaste, laundry detergent, hair mousse, shaving cream and toilet bowl cleaner. The commissary has pretty good deals on these things, as general prices are 30% less than retail. I was able to use coupons which took $10.75 off the total! I spent $74.32.

I also went online and stocked up on even more toilet paper with

Boxed.com. I was motivated by a $15 off $75 purchase if I used my American Express card. In addition to toilet paper (64 rolls), I picked up 5 sticks of deodorant for my husband, and liquid hand soap refill. I added on a six count package of those small tissue packs (stocking stuffer) to get my total with tax just over the $75 mark at $75.97. The

It's a big outlay of cash, but it feels good to stock up and know that I don't have to add in these extras to the grocery list to an otherwise spendy and busy season!

    I added that offer to my card and am thinking about it. I'm still pretty well stocked up from the last time they had a similar Boxed offer ... so I'm waffling.

    We stock up on furnace filters (buying 6 at a time) because our furnace takes a weird size not available at Home Depot and other stores. Unbelievably, despite the weird size, they are actually better filters, cheaper online than the 3M brand for our old furnace, and come with free shipping.

    I also buy the 96 ounce dishwashing liquid on payday because it is cheaper than buying the equal amount in smaller bottles. I usually buy it at Dollar General.

    FT, you do have through the end of October to decide. It isn't always worth it depending on what you buy.

    Crazyliblady, we used to buy filters for a full year at our last home. So convenient to have them all on hand and ready to go. Here the complex we live at provides free filters, I do have to go get a new one each month from the office.

    Sounds like you did well. You never want to run out of TP or deodorant! Smile

    I uaed to stock up more--but now only on deodorant special offers and the Costco TP and Paper towels. Sometimes root touch-up for my rapidly greying hair--when you need it, you need it!
