**Top 3 stockpiled items of 2012**

  With 2012 almost done, it’s nice to sit back and reflect on your couponing in 2012.  What were the top 3 items you stockpiled this year? I can bet a lot will be the same, but here’s mine.

1) Bodywash

2) Deodorant

3) Resolve (LOL)

 

What were your 3 favourite coupons and hoping to see again? For me:

1) Multibionta- Cheap or sometimes FREE Vitamins

2) Nexxus – FREE Shampoo and Conditioner and overage!

3) Cottonelle- With a sale paying as little as .08 a roll !

 

What 3 things were you able to do because of couponing?

1) Donations to my children’s school, and multiple food banks

2) Providing many family members and friends with bags of free groceries

3) With all my savings, installed a pool for my kids!

 

Let’s see how many different, great answers we can get!

    We never did find the Nexxus a someone cleared out every pad in the city the first day they went up but they were a great coupon. We stocked up on toilet paper , multibionta and toothpaste this year as we have so much of everything else. Coupons aren’t as lucrative as they once were back in 2010 and 2011 but there are still savings to be had and we will keep on using them.

    The top three products I kept on hand this year were toothpaste, dental floss and soap. I figured I can never have enough on hand, especially with a family. We always want to be clean and have white teeth.
