Household suplies

Nothing annoys me more than running out of something then having to pay a premium price to get it now, where as if you purchase in advance not only do you.have it in stock and don't have the inconvenience of running out ( loo roll is a really bad one) and the expense of paying me more.
This does rely on the assumption you have room to store the good and the money to purchase them.
With high school children we find we use a lot of ink and paper for printing out past ppapers and the such. We've learnt that buying the recycled ink doesn't work so we buy the genuine ink but source it from the cheapest seller and checking each time we buy as the prices change. For paper we find any old copy paper is fine sometimes it's cheaper to buy 5 reams in a box other times one at a time. 
Any time I see the cat food ( sox is very particular) reduced I just buy what I can ( I guess if we were really hungry I could make cat food pie ????)
I do this as much we can without over filling  the house totally though
