Hoarding doesn't always work. I was talking to a woman recently who always kept a large stockpile of toilet paper in her basement from long before the virus hit. Whenever it was on sale she'd buy it and stash it in her basement. She was buying it faster than she was using it so she'd built up quite a reserve. She had a pipe break right over her TP stockpile, soaking it all and ruining it and now she's got none and is relying on napkins until she can find some more TP. If you're going to hoard, you need to find safe places to stash it. You can think you're prepared for anything only to have God prove you wrong.

Personally, I think every store should make "stuff" limited- there's no need to have 1200 rolls of tpaper, how much can one family S*** in one week, no more than before all of this..  Woman Wink

Oh, some of them try to sell part of their stash to make some extra cash....But when no one is buying, and like you said they can only use so much, thats a lot of money in a budget tied up in TP.....

Yes disinfectant wipes no longer seem to exist.

Don't know how the schools can open consider they rarely disinfect anything, cleaning only is sweeping the floor and dump trash once a day. 

Mass transit and school buses even worse.

Re: I'm Done Trying To Find "Stuff."

About two weeks ago I was wheeling my grocery cart into my building and I saw a sign taped to the door.  We have a big one about Covid do's and don'ts,but this one said (by my memory)

 

"We have been notified that a resident or residents in your building have tested positive for corona and are self quarantining at the direction of the Dept. of Health.  We have deep cleaned all public areas" and it goes on.

 

That was a strange feeling.  It reminded me of 9/11 and the anthrax scare.  I kinda felt, now this?  There's really not much more I can do.  There's no hand sanitizer anywhere and hasn't been for weeks.  You'd think they would ship it in to Covid Central, but then maybe it makes more sense to send it to other areas of the country.  But it seems to me there's absolutely no rhyme or reason to these shortages in different areas.  It's all just random.

Re: I'm Done Trying To Find "Stuff."

I am not into buying a lot of cleaning products.  

 

“Cleaning” to me means a solution of Lysol or Mr Clean, so there are bottles of such under the kitchen sink, and you will never find this house without 4-5 bottles of bleach.  

 

I buy bleach wipes for quick daily wipe downs in our bathrooms, and trucker daughter carries them to clean in the big truck after each run.   

 

I hate needing something and not having it, but the one thing I hate even more is shopping.   I look at shopping as time wasted that I can’t get back, so when I have to go to the store, I make it count.  

 

The goal is for me to walk out of that store with everything my family is going to need for months, so that final checkout total might be anywhere from $300-$700, but it gives me a lot of peace to live my life without needing things that now cannot be found.

@stuyvesant, The hand sanitizer situation is really perplexing isn't it?  But according to articles in the Wall Street Journal and CNBC, a big problem is the hand sanitizer is one of the medical products needed here that is impacted by the tariff situation with China.  The makers of Purell has actually requested it be removed from the tariff list a while ago, but no action has been taken by the administration at this date.

 

That is why so many distilleries started making it.  But they are giving high priority to health care professionals and first responders.  

 

In the meantime, people need the hand sanitizer for when they go out to get groceries, etc.
