Yes. Today they were out of toilet paper, napkins and all kinds of pinto beans, garbanzo beans and white beans. They had black beans. They were also out of rice and almost out of hand soap. They had four people restocking the shelves and were still out of some items. They had hand sanitizer in boxes at the manager’s counter.
I'm presently home bound at the moment. So I'm going by what folks tell me as they go out and shop. Bleach and other disinfectants are scarce. People are noticing prices climbing on most everything as they run out. Purrell is getting to be unavailable all together.
1 & 2 for me. My daughter is moving to Palo Alto and her new roommate couldn't find TP. I got some for them and me. I just got back from Safeway, did some shopping. Except for disinfecting wipes, they were good.
I'm impressed to hear someone had hand sanitizer left at this point! Out of curiosity I looked on Amazon. There was some, at outrageous prices!
Price gouging is illegal in some states. That is inexcusable.
I saw a lady in Dollar General with a large shopping cart stacked over full of toilet tissue.
I find this to be especially hilarious as TP is NOT an essential in the worst of times unless you live in the woods. Push comes to shove, a wash cloth or other fabric can do, and it is renewable.
I read explanations from four mental health professionals who basically said it was because people felt they had control with TP. I don't even know what that means. My daughter figures it is people who are really hunkering down for a long stay indoors. I don't know, just seems crazy.
I remember keeping a copy of the Monkey Wards or Sears catalogs in the outhouse. Have to say I prefer TP over a page in the catalog. And the old rag clothes material only works well in more humid climates. In the desert, it's a different deal.
