One thing I've learned about people in crisis is they have abandoned all the healthy and organic foods for "the bad stuff". Guess your health isn't so important when your health is important.

What did people in Washington do when the Governor ordered everyone to stay at home on Monday? We'll Tuesday there were huge numbers of people packed shoulder to shoulder in the Costco parking lot waiting for the store to open so they could strip the shelves.
Here, it appears they are living off peanut butter, pasta, and soup.
No wonder they need TP.
Plenty of beer and wine though.

Can't find RV toilet paper anywhere. The virus is not causing diarrhea, how did the run on toilet paper get started? Makes no sense. Saw on Ebay that some had toilet paper up for bid. This is crazy.

Make it yourself. Buy two ply paper, unroll the roll and separate the two plys.
Otherwise just use the standard household paper. The RV paper is a rip off anyway. You're just paying more for less because it says RV on the package.

This has not been mentioned. Many folks these days don't know how to cook for a family. Now with restaurants closed they have to shop and cook.

Before the CV what %age of them ate out at least 1 to 2 or more meals a day?? That's why shopping is crazy. Those who ate out have to shop. What is disappearing from the shelves? All the easy to fix stuff hotdogs, pizza's, cereals, pancakes, soups etc. Not much of that stuff is that great for your health but few seem to care.

Some of the folks might know how to cook but are just to spoiled or lazy to.
This is a different society than you and I grew up in.

All the stuff we buy(excluding TP and peanut butter) has been fine. Produce, dried beans, whole grains all look normal.

Some of the odd things may be because their kids are home and they have to make them lunch and provide snacks.

Agree that some people do not knowing how to cook regular meals. There's also a portion of homes (living places) that lack much of a kitchen or storage for food. Thus they may not be able to prepare a real meal, even if they knew how.

Just prepared food for thought....

We are seeing crazy stuff here too, in Oregon. I was in Safeway first is last week and some little old lady is such a cart filled 1/2 with hamburger and the rest with other assorted cuts. Chicken and eggs are seeing a run too. To my knowledge, there is no shortage of cows and chickens so what is the run on these all about. Then you have the hoarder mentality to deal with and the people who want to fight over the last 3 dozen eggs when you only want a dozen. We eat primarily organic and my wife has Celia disease so that knocks off the gluten products (BTW, the bread wall, entire wall, was empty) so we have a bit of an easier time finding foods, but pay a lot more for it. Stay tuned, as it is going to get worse before better.

Portland Oregon seems to be the destination city for those who can fit into society across this country. I have lived here for 30 yrs not to much of anything surprises me anymore. Think about a city who proudly states "Keep Portland Weird" and it can be really weird at times.

Whoa whoa whoa!! Eggs are getting hard to find? That's bad. It means more people will figure out that duck eggs are 10 times better than chicken eggs. They are usually available at the end of March until the fall. I'm already looking for a place around Hot Springs to get some duck eggs, but I might have a hard time finding them if everyone else is also looking for them. That is bad news indeed.

I mean, wait, no, duck eggs aren't good. They are nasty! Don't buy duck eggs.

It took me 5 stores with none and then getting up at 6AM, to fight off the other seniors, to get a dozen eggs.

This morning the DW, who is a bit to young for senior hours, dropped 2 of them. Arghhhh.

They did have quail eggs, how do they taste ?

Quail eggs are good, but are a bit more "Earthy" tasting than chicken eggs IMO. They're also pretty darn small, so you'd need like, a dozen for an omelet. They are more of a specialty item than a cooking staple for me. Duck eggs on the other hand can be used exactly like chicken eggs and are basically the same size. Maybe a hair bigger. Try your local farmer's market for eggs. Even if they only have chicken eggs, it'll be better eggs.
