Perhaps 10 years supply of that sorta goods is too much, but I LOVE the idea of having a year's supply of non-perishable stuff on hand. I spend 3 hours a day commuting to work, which means the evenings are pretty well shot, so making the most of a weekend shopping trip, not to mention the obscene amount of easily accessible storage space in my home, makes sense. (It's a 3 bedroom home and there are only myself, hubby, 1 dog and 1 bird living here.)Another angle to look at at from (cheaper too) is to look for simplifications and substitutions to reduce the number of products that you need a year's supply of. For example, I use baking soda in place of toothpaste, deodorant, facial scrub and antacid. A years supply is one or two large boxes.I'm sensitive to the ingredients in most cleaning products, so I clean with water, cleanser, baking soda and vinegar. A year's supply doesn't take up much room.I use just one tablespoon (I marked the measuring lid) of liquid laundry detergent, so a year's supply is 2 1/2 large bottles. Stuff like that.Reader99Living lightly
