I read over what I've written and I think who would have believed it 3 weeks ago!
I felt like i won the lottery when i found a bottle of softsoap last week in the darkness of the shelves. :)

as to tp, who would have figured a ww2 soldier in his mre would get a packet of tp and i haven't been able to buy tp or paper towels in my store in 4 weeks!

Really 4 weeks!!!!!!! The panic buying locally didn't start here until the day the President issued his guidelines and the same day the Governor then the Governor did the same and that's been a few days shy of 2 weeks. Up through last week I could still find single rolls here and there and I tried not to be a pig but now this week I'm starting to worry that this shortage may be a long-lasting one.

yep, some people figured out the tp thing before i did. i guess i would have failed surveycomet. :LOL:

i was a moron on disposible clorox wipes. saw a news story about the bacteria in reusable bags and bought some wipes to clean my bags. chose 1 can of wipes instead of the 3 pack because i asked myself do i need a 3-pack. next week no wipes and been that way ever since so i should have bought the 3 pack. :)

tp - governor and mayor say no need to hoard, newspaper story cites tp manufacturer says there are no shortages and plenty of tp to go around, but shelves bare so someone is lying -- people who claim they are not hoarding or the tp industry for claiming no product shortages.

I want you to know I disapprove of hoarding but I am seriously considering getting up early and buying another 4 pack of tp tomorrow morning (they were about a 1/2 short of closing when I bought mine this evening). In my defense, my experience of Charmin is a roll doesn't last very long.

Me too. I'm mildly frustrated by feeling hoardish myself, when really I'm just trying to keep somewhat close to what my normal grocery shopping was before this.

Edited because my keyboard is not as smart as my phone and didn't capitalize for me.

Another victim of coronavirus bookstores and publishers - Bookshop is a new e-commerce site where you can buy print books directly from 350 independent stores. The NY Times reports they have seen a surge this week in sales to the tune of $380,000 up from an average of $28,000 a week in February.
