Most serious couponers have already seen the show Extreme Couponing, and already know about many couponers use the shelf for as a storage solution. I thought this would be a great way to hold my stockpile for my giveaways I do, donations, gifts I buy, and my own stockpile. I do have a really big bathroom closet, but it’s so deep that I can’t always see in the back. I need a flashlight which can be a pain. I am happy to have a shelf to hold items and I can see it all now.
I have it in my spare bedroom that is used for storage. I bought the shelf at Sam’s Club for $35 and it can hold up to 1,000 pounds! It’s very sturdy and I love how easy it is too see it all. I also bought some Sterlite 6qt clear containers to hold makeup, toothbrushes and dental floss, samples I get in the mail, and nail polish plus razors. I can see everything inside the containers which is also nice. It feels good to finally have everything organized and will make picking up items much easier. It will also make doing my famous mystery box giveaway much easier and can put even more goodies in those boxes!
Many times when we buy stuff on clearance or sale, then we can’t find it. How is that saving you money if you have to repurchase items. It’s not and that is wasting money. You can find cheaper shelving solutions, but I wanted something very visible and sturdy. I priced quite a few shelved but this was a great value for my money. This shelf will last for years and I can also use it in the garage or anywhere late if I wanted.
How do you organize your stockpile? I am not an extreme couponer but I just needed something to keep it all organized so this was the perfect storage solution for me.
