In addition to toilet paper being gone from shelves...
Our local grocery store has never looked like this in the meat department.
We are out of yeast. Yep: yeast! I guess people who still have them will pull out their old bread machines and start making bread again... or so they think/plan...
I am wondering how much of what people buy will end up going stale in the back of cupboards, in closets, under beds, in basements... wherever people are stocking the stuff they're buying.
I also wonder if the sale of freezers is booming.
Acini di pepe is apparently not a popular pasta. We're clear out of all types of pasta.... except for a mountain of acini di pepe that no one has touched. It is sitting on the shelf, forlorn, sticking out like a sore thumb! (Tomorrow I will go check the expiration date on them.)
Our only other store in this small town is Walmart and it is in a worse state. I have an elderly diabetic in-law that my lady takes care of and she can't have the saturated fats from the high end steak that is left on the shelves. Even the dry beans and rice are empty.
My step daughter in the NE told me there's no meat where she shops. It's crazy out there. We eat mostly vegie so we are spared that much. Tomorrow I'll find out if there are any even vegies left...
Sunday morning I went to the grocery store and all the potatoes in the produce section were gone. All the beef except for pricey cuts of beef and prefab beef patties--gone. Chicken--all except frozen--gone. Pork--gone. They still had ham hocks and hog jowls.
And of course, toilet paper--gone. Even with a limit on quantity.
