Thread Name: BS: New rules for Grocery shopping
Subject: RE: BS: New rules for Grocery shopping
The line at my local COSTCO was 60 yards long this morning, so I went to the nearby supermarket. There were many empty shelves, but the produce was decently stocked.. and meat area also. I was going to buy pre-cut stew beef at COSTCO, but was able to get 2 chuck roasts at the supermarket..(Giant)... plus potatoes and baby carrots. Will make stew tomorrow. That, plus a sale on some frozen dinners and some other stuff has us pretty well ok for up to 3+ weeks..(got milk 2 days ago, and glad I did.... that area was bare. I had also bought canned tuna last Winter, so that's ok... and I have frozen 4-5 loaves of bread.

   I DO have a decent supply of some high-quality paper towels and lots of tissues. Comes from a habit of stocking up during sales, so I had just shopped when the panic started.
   It remains to be seen how well stores are able to re-stock in the next couple of weeks, but I think that limits MUST be imposed, as some people simply can't manage to haunt stores for hours to be first in line when trucks arrive.

   Gonna be an interesting Spring & Summer.... :>(
