I must admit: I stocked up on non-perishables to see our family through a potential period of 2 to 3 weeks of quarantine. But now the stores are running out of paper goods like paper towels and toilet paper! Why are people buying up entire stocks of these items?
I know some people probably are buying multiple packs of toilet roll, but at the same time it's not like they put thousands of packs on the shelves. Even if each customer only bought a single pack they would probably clean out the stock pretty quick.
I think it's just that on a normal day not everyone will buy toilet roll, but now everyone wants a pack just in case... and of course the d***heads who are actually buying 10 packs.
It is frustrating being a non-panic shopper though, and I can't even get a new pack of toilet rolls when I am genuinely low on them. Same with hand soap, I ran out in the bathroom and was lucky just to get one to replace it (triple the cost of the ones I normally buy).
Hand sanitizers are totally unobtainable where we are in central Florida. I have a bread machine and sufficient flour to bake about 5 loaves (provided we don't run out of electricity! ) Sugar and pasta is still freely available.
