Help Helping out parents

I am helping stock up my parents (both in their 60s) and could use some suggestions

so far
HBA- 1-2 years
TP- 1 yr
Dishwasher Tabs- 6 months
Laundry Detergent- 2-3yrs.

They are really picky about food, did manage to get some pasta. What are the high value items you would like to take off your shopping list for a while? I am hoping it will give me some ideas on what to tackle next.

Thanks for your help

Find out if they take vitamins regularly or if they should be taking them and just can't afford them. That was something I never took until I started couponing because they are so expensive!

just look in their cabinets you will know from that what it is that they use on a regular basis.
I stockpiled my grandmother for almost everything hba including neosporin, bandaids, bayer asperin, coq10. cat food, the list could go on forever. the best way I found was to actually go through her cupboards and find out what she used. especially with picky eaters just make a day of it with a pen and paper, write down the things you know you can get right now to stockpile and a list of things to look out for stockpiling in the future when you can get them free or CHEAP

Lightbulbs and soup might also be nice, especially in this weather.

Even picky food people are usually happy about flour, sugar and other staples.
