    Good news: driving on the highway, there was a truck in front of me. FreshCo. On the way to a store. So they are stocking stores. Yay.

    More good news: in the poll, nobody chose "what is coronavirus"

    They have changed the rules to allow them to deliver 24x7. Hoping that will help the stock situation!

    As I have been on here for years and couponed for 30 years I do have a pretty decent stockpile ,so I don't need to buy toilet paper or paper towels ,I have 2 canisters of Lysol wipes also

    But I didn't have a variety of frozen meats as I have been sick and had a cold last week before all this started ,yesterday I was able to find chicken breast strips at freshco

    So I will wait for more meat as I will use up some I have fish,half a ham ,pork tenderloin ,Maybe go out and try to get chicken next week .

    I only buy what I need, so basically my regular shopping and a few extras (things I normally wouldn't buy, like candy/licorice, pop, chips) as comfort foods.

    When I am at the stores, I keep my 2m or more from people, avoiding them like the plague. I use self checkout when possible, and if a store doesn't have self checked out then I scan the items myself and tell the cashier to simply operate the till.

    I went on a mission yesterday to grab a few more things we would need if we were self isolating. Our bread machine broke a month or so ago, we had been waiting to replace but we decided now was the time as if need be we can now make all out own bread. This meant I also needed to pick up more yeast just to be safe (that was an adventure, I went to 14 stores to find it).

    Also just grabbed odds and ends as I was in stores, including Tylenol since they say if you get Covid-19, do not take Advil, which is our normal go to and we have in the house. I think we are stocked up now but I must admit this is causing my anxiety to go off and even this morning I was questioning if I needed to run out and grab anything today.

    We added a few extra frozen veggies and potatoes to our purchases last week but not a "coronavirus shop" For the most part we keep a decent stock of items in our home because we shop south and only go out every few months. Weekly shops tend to be perishable items or the stuff we've run out of.

    We are doing more frozen items too. And some canned items. Less fresh in case we get a power outage and things spoil. For milk, we bought the Tetra pack instead of the refrigerated, since it lasts longer.

    When the eggs are done, we won't get more until the next sale.

    We should stay at home and not go out, cut off the transmission of the virus, coupled with the efforts of medical staff, we will definitely be able to eliminate the virus.

    Well, i did my weekly grocery shopping this morning. I have most things already but needed things like milk, ground beef, lettuce, etc. Anyway, the Maxi in my town opens at 7 AM for seniors. So i was there at around 7:30 AM. there was only a handful of people there and everyone was keeping their distance. As you walked into the store, a person was stationed there and you had to wash your hands and take a sanitized buggy. All the workers are wearing gloves. all the cashiers are behind plexi glass. And only debit or credit cards are accepted. No cash. Bags are provided for the groceries and you have to bag your own. I also brought my own Clorox wipes and hand sanitizer.

    Then i stopped in at Metro which opens at 8 AM. Before you even got into the store, there is a Security Guard posted there and he asked a bunch of questions which are also written on a large cardboard thingy outside. When the security guard is satisified with answers, you can go in and are greeted by another person who directs you to wash your hands at one of several washing stations. Then you get a sanitized buggy. As at Maxi, the employees all wear gloves, and some with direct contact wear masks. Plexi-glass at cashiers station and you bag your own groceries.

    We have a special phone njumber for grocery delivery. But the wait is approximately 1 week. So if i order like today, i would have to wait until exactly 1 week from today for my delivery. Which to me doesnt make any sense. I know the grocery stores in my area are hiring temporary workers.

    I give kudos to all the workers there and personally thank them for working. They are providing a service to all of us at the rist of their health.

    I was surprised at the clearout of No Name popping kernels when I went today to get a bag. Air popping must have become popular in the past month as only once in the past two years do I recall a stockout of this item. There were microwave popcorn products and a few Jiffy Pop pans still on the half-full shelves. No popcorn for me (though why I did not get a Smart Foods popcorn bag with my pop I don't know; I went for Easter chocolate).
