Thrifty Thursday: Why it "pays" to have a stockpile

My daughter plays soccer and her spring season just recently started. Her first game is this weekend. My husband sent me a message from her practice yesterday telling me they got the “snack” schedule and that we have to take snacks and drinks to the first game.

This is when it pays to have a stockpile because I’ve got several cases of Capri Sun, water, and Juicy Juice that I got for next to nothing, so I don’t have to run out to the store and pay full price! Plus, I’ve got plenty of cheap granola bars, fruit snacks, etc. on hand, too. So, all I have to do is grab some fruit (hooray for the cheap grapes at Kroger this week!)

This has been a busy week and I’ve been sick and had sick kids on top of it, so I’m glad I don’t have to stress about that (or pay full price for those items). It really does pay off to have a stockpile!
