Yesterday I went to Publix and every last case of canning jars was gone. No metal lids, either.

Gatorade was lined up to make it look like there was more than there was. One line of drinks in a row. Looks good from a distance, but I could definitely tell stock was low when I got close.

@notmycircus Strategic gatorade stacking... the Wizard of Oz curtain of the supply chain!

@rapunzelsoldierfish Yep, I actually overheard a manager there talking to a shelf stocker in that section recently. They were telling this employee about the Gatorade situation and how to spread out the product to make it look like the shelves were more full. Nonoise

I went food shopping today for whatever I could buy ahead of time for Thanksgiving dinner.  There were 3 bags of stuffing cubes left and very limited cranberry sauce/fresh cranberries.  I'm sure they'll get more, but if you need things for your dinner, shop early.

One of the supermarkets I go to decided to rearrange all of the supermarket shelves to hide what they don't have.  How creative!  They didn't do it in a logical way though.  Who thinks big bags of flour should be grouped with the condiments?  Only large size packages of Gold Medal flour.

Tonight I went to Walmart to get a few things. Made a few observations while there. 

The water aisle looked like it had been raided. Not much left.

The coffee creamer in the dairy section was almost all gone. All that was still there was CoffeeMate and the Walmart brand. 

No car backseat organizers available. I wanted one to contain the constant mess in my car.

Self-checkout appeared to have no bags at any register. So I went to a regular checkout line. They had a few bags. The bag corrals looked empty or barely stocked overall.

BRING YOUR OWN BAGS.

@jofrance funny / sad.

Weird, here. Our fuel prices have been dropping. Food is higher but not exorbitant, yet?

My post on Facebook this evening:

 

“So today I came across a Dave Ramsey video where he talks about the supply chain issues. Then Access WDUN shows up on my newsfeed with an article about the National coin shortage. Then I turn on WSB’s Mark Arum and he’s talking about food deserts. A lady called into his show saying that she makes a SIX-FIGURE INCOME but is rationing her food and wasting nothing anymore.

I sense there’s an elephant in the room and the lights are finally turning on.” 💥

 

 

Whatever is headed our way in the next couple of years is quickly coming to light. We ARE headed for hard times. It’s shocking to me how openly it’s being discussed now.
