What is the stock up price for, well any item? What is a stock up price? In brief, stock up price is a a price point at which it’s a good idea to buy something in a larger quantity so you can use it in the future.
Stock Up Price
Stock up price then is a price point so low that it’s a great time to stock up, and buy enough stock to last the next 3-6 months.
Strategically purchasing items when you can get them at their lowest prices is an excellent way to minimize the need to buy the items when they are priced higher. Ideally you’d like to be able to consistently only buy based on the best deals, rather than because you NEED something – at which time you would need to get the best deal possible, which may not be a stock up price. When the final price is a stock up price, it’s a good time to stock up.
To stock up (on something) is to buy a large amount of something so that you will have enough for the future. More specifically in couponing, stocking up means buying more than you need for the immediate, or near future needs. You are buying a larger quantity or any item, typically to last you and your family 3-6 months or more. By stocking up you can build a stockpile.
Stockpile is a collection of items: food, household, personal care items etc. that you purchased in larger quantity and are storing for future use. A stockpile may be small or large. It is completely up to you how much stock, if any you want to build with couponing. You certainly don’t have to have a huge stockpile – the deals will come around again, and you’ll be able to purchase more in the future at stock up price points.
ALL Deals are Cyclical!
Meaning you don’t have to buy 2-3 years worth of stock. All deals cycle back again and again. Some deals cycle back about every 6-8 weeks, other every 9-12 weeks. So, strategically, money and savings wise, have enough stock to hold you over until the next deals cycle comes around so you can maximize the savings.
