Please add to this list – One Year Stockpile, Personal Care Items

It may take a few tries, but we’ll put together a list of items we are interested in having in our one-year stockpile. Different families will be different, as some have pets, some have kids, some have special medical needs, but I’ll try to pull together advice and pricing information on the most used items. Please add to this list by commenting on it and after a few weeks, when everyone has had the chance to read and add their items, I’ll put together a master list. Once I have the master list, I’ll know what to look for, and I can offer specifics on the local store deals and the best prices, as well as track the rock-bottom price when it is time to stock up. NOTE: this is a list of things we use all the time, that we will constantly be buying and replenishing, but that we want to keep enough on hand to only buy them when they are at the lowest price. This is not the list for one-time purchases, like backpacks or generators, those are going to go in a different list. This is consumables that are for regular use.
