They want you to ration? Do the opposite! 🙂

    I was lucky when toilet paper ran out. I had enough to get me by. There have to be people out there that will not run out for years. That is hoarding and it is not good.

      I can’t see how it’s bad for them that can afford it…

    Ha! Cut off the places like DC. Already they’re putting stores out of business by not prosecuting shoplifting. At some point they break, and then comedy ensues. It always ends in tragedy.

    Yup. Although, quite frankly, if you still insist on living in a Deep Blue Marxist shithole like the District of Criminals, you DESERVE to suffer the effects of Marxist policies that lead to situations like shortages and rationing.

    Bulk buying now make sense not just from worries about supply shortages getting worse but because of INFLATION. A benefit of being a geezer is that you actually HAVE seen it all before.
    Watch everything climb in price while the value your of savings melts away…14,15,16 % mortgage rates. If you see a sale on something you use a lot, shamelessly empty the shelf. Getting a good freezer and filling it NOW is well worth it.

    IMHO, some people view a supermarket like some natural resource like a rainforest of something. They have this mentality that you can’t take too much of something-you have to leave some, as if it will then replenish naturally. The truth is, of course, that there’s usually more out back, and if a business wants to set customer limits, they have every right to do so. Then there’s the fact that if you have that roll of t.p., that doesn’t automatically mean you’re not going to share. I would rather have stores sold out and resources in private hands than under the control of a business with nothing but a profit motive.
    All that said, I’d still leave a few of whatever item I stock up on. I just don’t buy the bullshit that you have to feel guilty about stocking up.
    Panic buying isn’t as smart of buying well beforehand, but it sure as hell beats not bothering to stock up at all.
