Bargain-obsessed mum shows off her HUGE stockpiling room: How to save from Coles and Woolworths

Bargain-obsessed mum shows off her HUGE stockpiling room stacked floor-to-ceiling with food and cleaning products: ‘It’s like a mini supermarket’

  • A mum has been praised online after sharing photos of her stockpile room 
  • Tania said she only buys multiple items that are on sale 
  • She shops at Woolworths, Coles, Big W, Costo, Amazon and Pet Culture 
  • Images show shelves stacked with multiple buys of the same product 
  • In the comments many described the room as a mini ‘supermarket’ 

While shoppers once received backlash for stockpiling due to Covid, one mum is instead being praised online for her ‘impressive’ stockpiling room full of food, toilet paper and cleaning products.

Sharing images to a popular Facebook group, mum Tania said she only buys items on sale at Woolworths, Coles or Big W and also shops at Costco, Pet Culture and Amazon.

‘I just wanted to share my new stockpile room. The last photo was our original cupboard, but I was fortunate enough to be able to use an entire room,’ Tania wrote online. 

‘As a rule of thumb this is all only purchased when 1/2 price from either Woolworths, Coles or Big W. Some items never come on half-price sale so I just buy them when they are 30 per cent off.’

The images show shelves lined with dry pasta, noodles, canned beans, diced tomatoes, tomato paste, tuna, cooking stock, sauces, pancake mix, cereal, soft drinks, snacks, biscuits, muesli bars, tissues, cleaning supplies, detergent, pet food, water bottles and more. 

Tania added how the shopping tactic saves her family of six hundreds of dollars every month and she often shops on Sundays. 

‘I’m going to invest in a label maker and make barcode stickers for the shelves so I can use the scanning app each week which will make it so much faster,’ she said.

In the comments many described the room as a ‘supermarket’ due to the amount of products purchased in bulk.

‘I wouldn’t consider that a stockpile, more like a supermarket. So beautifully organised as well,’ one person wrote.  

‘Wonderful supermarket. I think u have more than my local IGA. Great work! We all need to do this now as we have hard times coming,’ another added. 

A third wrote: ‘Not sure if I’m impressed or jealous or shocked as I have zero room to store even anywhere for toilet paper.’

A supermarket employee was also shocked by the amount Tania had purchased. 

‘As someone who works at Woolies it’s mind blowing seeing you’ve got basically full boxes if not multiple boxes of products and set it up like our shelves! Super satisfying for me,’ the woman wrote. 

‘As the youngest in my family… I’m jealous we didn’t have this!’

Despite the praise, some supermarkets in Australia still have limits on the number of items customers can purchase at a time to ensure stock doesn’t run out fast.
