Not a trolley, but I've seen one man with a car boot full. I was going to call him a rude name, but then I decided not to because he might have been to one of the cash and carries mentioned above and not unloaded since, or he might be a volunteer delivering many people's shopping. You never know.


or he might have got agressive and given you a knuckle sandwich

Thwere's only 2 of us so when we last stocked up with a 9-roll pack, when they were on offer, the "crisis" passed us by. Well, almost - we were offered a pack in a supermarket last week, so we took it, then dropped it off at my daughter's house on the way home (her 4 year old is now using the look, she runs out fast!)

We never have less than 18

Chrohns is a disease where frequent, extended sessions of diarrhoea mean that a stock of soft loo roll is an essential item

Down to my last one now.

I shall go to my local corner shop and take a pack from the huge stack of toilet rolls which have been outside on the pavement every day ever since this pseudo-shortage began.

Restocked as of this morning at Morrisons (Rubery), plenty in stock.

Couldn't get kitchen rolls however, the kitchen roll shelves were full of - toilet rolls!

popped in at Aldi in Streatham just to have a look and they had tons of them. But no bread flour, infact the shelf for flour was almost empty and very small in area, I suppose Aldi people dont do much cooking?

When heinz tomato soup is on offer (50p/can) we buy 3-6 months worth, expiry is normally a year.

You've used 30 bog rolls from?

That's about 2 years worth for us.

I guesstimated :mrgreen: We have at least 35 left, it does really depend what you buy too.
I did a mini survey sometime back, as economy varies dramatically.
Lidl "simply" six pack is a good buy, but take a close look at the quilting, if none no good! they sometimes swap suppliers and it can be a bit naff, ripping all over the place before you get some sheets off.
So when in stock I bulk buy, but I have been doing this for several years, My shopping habits have not changed at all since lock down.
Its probably that that a lot off shoppers shop everyday of the week?

I used to have all sorts of problems with my guts. In the end I spent months keeping food diaries until I finally discovered the culpirt.
Soya.

To make it worse for a while I thought it was dairy so I swapped it all out for soya...
I can tolerate small amounts with no issues, but eat enough and it takes the best part of a week for my guts to recover. No idea what it's doing in there.
It's hard stuff to avoid too, gets into everything.
