An Expensive Endeavour - Filling Up My Bank

Consumables. Love em' or Loath em', you
need them.

This is the current state of my alt's GBank, which I try to keep consumables in. Right now, its a mess, but parts of it are starting to show promise. See - I have this crazy idea. I want to completely fill it with the things I'm going to need for T8, so that I keep the alchemical juices flowing as I spend all my WoWing hours in Uludar.

When I started to make a list of the things I'd need, I figured it would be short. Then I started to consider the consumables I use when it really matters, items I need to bring gear up to snuff, and little things I forget - and it got big. So without further delay, I present my goal for being stocked on consumables:

(I'll admit, I jiggled some of the numbers so that this would all fit nicely in the bank - the presentation is probably as important to me as the function)

The price will vary by server, but Icethorn is what will hurt me the most (unless I decide to level my 70 Warlock whom is an Herbalist (but dosen't have epic flying, which would be hella painful).

Will I get it done? I'll certainly let you know if I do. I just keep thinking that prices for consumables will be sky high when the new raids come out, so it should be worth it. And for the things that I'll probably just grind out (Meats) or save up (Enchanting Mats, Ores) - this has given me target numbers.

What about you? What are your plans for materially preparing for the next tier of raiding?
