I love to stockpile glow sticks for special occasions. After Halloween I posted about how I stockpiled Glow Sticks that I got for 75% off. Now I will explain why 🙂
First of all they make great party favors or are just fun to break out for a family fun movie night. We love to use them on summer nights at the late night swim at our pool, when we are collecting lightening bugs and when we go to the drive in. We also use them for July 4th. Honestly they are a great way to keep up with your kids in the dark 🙂
However I also stockpile them for special events. Instead of paying $20+ dollars for glow toys at Disney On Ice, the Circus or other special events I come prepared with my glow sticks from my stockpile. I also pack my glow sticks when going to the Festival of Lights at the Cincinnati Zoo, King's Island and when we go to Disney World. By stockpiling the Glow Sticks after Halloween I am able to save hundreds of dollars a year! I often times purchase them in bulk on Amazon.com when I find a hot deal.
Stockpiling doesn't have to be limited to groceries. Think outside of the box when it comes to stockpiling and save even more from your family budget! You can also use them to create handmade Valentine Cards.
