Re: COVID-19, toilet paper, hoarding, and emergency preparedness

So, what happens to the surplus toilet paper in the summer, after normal life resumes?  Will there be an outbreak of TP trees?

Toilet paper, if kept properly, has an expiry date of 937164 weeks and two days.
Store in a cool, dark place. Toilet paper rolls will not breed if kept away from
wild trees. Every few months, check for evidence of dust bunnies: if found,
remove the dust bunnies with tweezers and store in separate cages according to
nationality.

Re: COVID-19, toilet paper, hoarding, and emergency preparedness

We need more articles like these:

 

Man who bought $10,000 worth of toilet paper and hand sanitizer denied refund.

Brothers who hoarded 17,700 bottles of hand sanitizer forced to donate to charity 

Costco will not allow returns on high-demand items like toilet paper, water and more 

 

Helps spread the message that get-rich-quick schemes often quickly turn into get-poor-schemes.

 

Meanwhile, my local big-box store still does not have TP available for online ordering.  When I searched today, "Baking Paper" (parchment) was suggested as an alternative.  Not the same thing.  Not at all.

Re: COVID-19, toilet paper, hoarding, and emergency preparedness

Anecdotally, I am hearing stories of more localized shortages. Usually in places more rural, outside of large cities that still suffer from acute shortages. Put it this way when your rural grocery store suddenly starts seeing multiple high end sports cars and "suburban utility vehicles aka Range Rover and Porsche Caymans) in the parking lot. Well, you can guess they ain't your local Amish farmers. Yes, I grew up amidst an Amish farming community, have family in those areas but not allowed down to the co-op to pick up my seed corn or hay seed due to the states local lockdown policy. Hope no one has a barn collapse or need help with a chicken coop, cause we can't help our farming nieghbors. We often help with birthing heifers and problem foals this time a year as well. Good luck, neighbors.  I would if I could but can't.

 

We see the same thing here at our local groceries as well but easier identified by the up to date City of Chicago parking permits overflowing with "supplies". In case your confused. I have ties and live in two differing states.
