I would say 2-3 boxes of bandaids, 6-12 bottles
of mouthwash, 12 boxes of toothpaste, 6-12 laundry
product, 6 dishsoap, 3 boxes Q tips, 2 cottonballs, 1 or 2 triple antibiotic ointments, or 2 Bactine.
Two or three allergy/cold meds, one cough, but only have a stock up of these, if your kids are older.
(I had one daughter that I only kept one bottle of
triaminic on hand, as she treated it more like a
candy syrup! Even when she was 16.) Check all
expiration dates on medicines, I like to see to it
they last 3 years on my shelf.
I buy TP in 12 roll packs, and kleenex boxes
3 at a time, and watch for sales.
I think that's the general idea, and adjust to
what your family uses.
I stock my house for 5-6. (Even my adult kids
come home and take my Tylenol, Alleve, etc.!)
I wish I could stock for a year, but usually it's a month at a time. I just don't like running
out of anything. I wish I had the pantry space!
One or two bottles of each cleaner only, but toilet bowl cleaner, and bleach are probably about the ones I go through the most! (I found out that the least (stocked items) I used were the cleaners--Because of how busy the schools kept my kids involved outside of the home!) You can intend to clean often, but life happens w/kids, so do not overspend on cleaners, if this is your situation. My cupboard is filled w/cleaners hardly used!
I also found you can clean a lot of things w/white
vinegar, or white vinegar and water! Drain opener
with 1/2 c baking soda, and 1/2c white vinegar
poured in drain. Check out
Good Luck!
