Extreme couponers are well known for their stockpiles of food and household items. You’ve seen the photos of floor-to-ceiling storage shelves stocked with seemingly years of laundry detergent, cereal, BBQ sauce, pasta, toothpaste, paper towels – you name it.
Well, the truth is that not all extreme couponers stock up on these items to keep them for themselves. Some donate the excess and some sell it off as part of what are called stockpile sales. Here is an ad for one this weekend in New Jersey: http://gsalr.com/extreme-couponer-stockpile-sale-hopatcong-nj-13132752.html.
Stockpile sales are great for picking up name brand items you use, for a fraction of the retail cost. The packages are unopened, but do check the expiration dates.
There are questions regarding whether such sales are legal, only because some retailers try and restrict the resale of their products, but I can’t say I understand under what circumstances reselling products you’ve purchased would be illegal – isn’t that what garage sales are?
Have you ever shopped at or held a stockpile sale? How was it?
