    As people are to distance for weeks they need to stock up to reduce their regular contact routines.

    the message is buy more and go shipping less often

    That means the weekly shoppers need to get a few weeks worth and the monthly bigger shoppers a couple of months worth.

    The shops can't keep up because everyone did it at the same time, there are shortages.

    telling people to shop for the same amounts means they have to shop on the same regularity defeating the idea to reduce contacts

      You are lucky to have the ingrdients. We can't get flour or yeast.

        A lot of people have 3 bathrooms these days, including myself, but in these times of shortage, perhaps you could do with less for the sake of others so they get their share too. You are not going to use 3 bottles at once even when you have 3 bathrooms.
        Eh, you stick to your 3 bathrooms and I’ll stick to mine 😊. I know what’s required to keep our household safe and clean. As I’ve said, 3 does not constitute stockpiling in my book. 33, absolutely. Let’s not fall out over 3 bottles of bleach. Lots more pressing matters to deal with in the coming weeks. Take care.

          That was not the message when the stockpiling began. and is still not the message. it was easy to avoid crowds when shopping and it was easy to get deliveries. The problem is everyone is now buying stuff whenever they see it, even though all the supermarkets (and toilet roll manufacturers) have said there is no supply chain issues or shortages.
          The problem is people panicking because they read BS on social media.............there is an extrfa £billion of food stored in homes across uk and still the shops keep filling their shelves, That is not a shortage!!!!

            Has anyone considered what we would do if there was NO toilet tissue available?

            Not everyone in the world uses it but still manage to keep themselves clean........ think about it !

                Our daughter has been to Aldi today, said the shelves were well stocked plenty of meat etc, the only two items they did not have was Pasta and yes you’ve guessed it Toilet Rolls!

                    Wonder how many will be willing to shop after the highest risk group in the country has been in for a shop?

                      Highest risk of suffering is NOT the same as highest risk of conveying!!

                    Wouldn't bother me as I do that when I collect my prescription. However my next big shop is a home delivery in 3 weeks. I just double down on washing my hands before and after each shopping trip and wear gloves.

                        On the subject of toilet rolls, I suppose we have got to see the funny side:

                            I am tempted by the Easter eggs on offer but am watching my weight so am being good.
                            I absolutely agree.

                            We have shopped our normal shop, but also a bit less frequently.

                            It is definitely making us look at what we already have and question whether we need any more. If you wait long enough the supermarket shelves will catch up with the over demand and soon they will be fully stocked all the time. Apparently, it has been reported that there is an extra £1 billion of stock piling in people's homes particularly of food. Sooner or later the demand will go down as people use all this up and then the supermarkets will have too much on the shelves as the stock control catches up.
