Unless you're going to spend considerable time offshore, I wouldn't worry about buying in that much quanity. Especially if coastal cruising. I plan my resupply stops around ports with a Super Walmart that is nearby. Generally, I need stuff about every 2 weeks, such as bread, eggs, fresh meat and fruit. As well as restock the distilled water (for human use), beer and other drinkables.

An even better reason not to have cardboard onboard is having to get rid of it (though you could burn it in the grill), and the amount of extra space it uses.
