Stocking like that is a little hard for me since I don't really use or stock much in the way of canned goods, other than meats. Nor most other grocery store type items. I tend to put a little away when I can and then buy bulk beans, grains, dehydrated foods, oils, etc. This doesn't work so well when you're first starting out, but once you're pretty well squared away it is a great way to replace used preps and build a larger inventory of them.

Some of the things I do buy a few of during my regular shopping trips are things like TP, household chemicals, vinegar, baking soda, personal care items, etc.

We do used canned veggies now, so we buy like we use. Since we don't use a lot of canned meats, we tend to avoid those. Besides, there's too much to shoot off of of the back deck. :thumb:
It makes sense to buy what you use. I don't use many canned meats either, but I at least have a bunch stocked back for when I need them. I only use them now to learn to use them in recipes later on.

I use mostly dehydrated veggies (and fresh) rather than canned, so that's why I buy them that way. I find they're cheaper overall and taste much better. But unfortunately, that means I can't buy a few "extra" when I grocery shop. I have to order them in bulk to make the savings worth it.
