🐓 The Chicken has Landed 🐓

My market finally had chicken this AM. Cooking will be much easier now.  The store was pretty well stocked except for paper towels and pasta, however there was a little of each.  My only issue was there were no lo-salt tomatoes or beans.  Cleaning products, including dish liquid were pretty much cleaned out.  The store wasn' crowded and everyone was masked and respectful of social distancing. It is so much better than WalMart, which is a zoo.

If this pandemic has taught me anything it’s how to cut my dependency on Walmart.  Since I’m over 65  I can shop my local Publix between 7-8 am on Tues & Wed and it’s pretty well stocked and no crowds. We are all masked and stick to the 6’ rule. I may continue this even after all the restrictions are lifted.

I went to my local Trader Joe's yesterday during their senior hour.  Plenty of chicken, ground beef, et.  They are so well stocked when you go first thing in the morning during their senior hour.  The downsize is that it's best to go there early and wait for their 8AM opening, since a line forms quickly.  However, the long line isn't as bad as it sounds, considering social distancy.

I'm good for about 3 weeks at least.  Just pray that we don't have any power outages that would impact my freezer!!!!!

I never was a big WM shopper, and now have zero desire to go there. My Aldi and small grocery store have supplied us well for seven weeks and I plan to remain loyal to them.

Hard to believe dish soap would be hard to come by. Glad when I shop I buy half dozen of everything we use a lot of so I won't have to go back to the store. If things ever get back to normal I'm going to start buying other things by the case. Already buy toilet cleaner & tp by the case.

@QVC kitty 1 Your post set my mind on chicken and I just ordered delivery dinner through a GrubHub. Thank you.
