States are reopening. There's going to be a second wave and I still can't find toilet paper!

This is crazy!

1. You can buy a huge package at Costco.

Was there the other day. I just couldn’t buy that big package, besides I have a bidet.

7. Bidet is the way to go, really.

Wish I had one.

10. I have a little travel bidet. Just a squirt bottle with a special stem and nozzel. Works

great and was only about ten bucks. I got it when I had a hip replaced and never stopped using it.

22. This is the company I brought mine from

Www.properwash.com

I am trying to stay away from Amazon and buy from this family owned business.

The bidet attachment is easy to install and you can also get a portable one for $6.99. My husband and I keep our personal ones in our travel bags and use when we are away from home.

2. Lots of TP at my local store.

Charmin, Cottonelle, generic-Kroger, etc.

Different for different parts of the country, apparently.

3. My guess is we've got 2-3 weeks to get prepared for the shit to hit.

You might want to google "washable + ass wipe"

Try office supply warehouse shipping companies or restaurant suppliers who will drop ship you a ton of tp.

I'm SUPPOSED to have a freezer and generator delivered this week which will be promptly filled from a local farm. I'm buying my next 3-6 months of meat ASAP.

Get ready for a big hunkering down.

4. If you are a senior or disabled you can go in Costan hour earlier and they have TP, PT, and kleenex.

I even got Kirkland sanatizing wipes!

Oh, you would have to check your Costco's hours and days for that. From my experience it is safer to call them.

11. Aldi?

Our Aldi has had TP for several weeks now. Find out what day the truck comes and go the next day.

13. Which Store Are Checking? Some Stores Are Better...

...for example, my Target gets wiped out, but Smart & Final not only has TP, but it has the good stuff. That's right Charmin double ply, not that single ply that breaks at the most inconvient times.

15. Likewise, I foresee a second wave of contagious

people who will be even sicker than the first bunch that needed hospitalizations.

I see this next lot as idiots for trump, and the chronically uninformed, both groups think they are invulnerable to death by Covid 19. They will get sick and waste days denying they are sick whilst they heedlessly spread the disease far and wide.

By the time they seek medical help if will be too late for most. This will tax the whole hospital system nationwide. The shortages that were prevalent from the start still exist and the piece meal supply chain cannot cope with a new surge in demand. There are fewer healthcare professionals now than when the virus first identified. And don't expect Trump to raise a finger to help anyone.

How much more can these selfless folks give, especially to the morons who deliberately risked their own lives and put everyone else in jeopardy because they were stupid.

16. I took a rainy Friday off just to restock

My wife and I donned our masks and hit our favorite Asian market, Aldi's, Big Lots, a Dollar Grocery and Publix. Our freezer and pantry were both nearly empty, so we had a lot to get. Plus we have been ordering extra non-food items from Walmart.com. It was good to get out on a rainy week day when most people were at work.

We both anticipate a big wave coming in the next 2-3 weeks, so we're relieved don't have to go back out for a few months.

17. Republicans seem to think that, even if/when there is a second wave...

... caused by premature "re-opening" efforts, the inevitable deaths from that wave are "worth it" as long as:
1) hospital capacity isn't overwhelmed (so they can claim that there's no "crisis" );
2) an ongoing lack of testing can keep the "official" number of COVID-19 cases artificially deflated (so they can claim that there's no crisis); and
3) they can claim that they successfully saved the economy against a non-existent crisis (no matter how well or poorly that economy actually performs).

...but i always forget to check out the tp! Beans and flour are back!! We live so far from town that we always stock up so we are about where we would normally be at this time pre covid.

24. It's still scarce here in SE PA, but can be found

Have to be there at the right time. Sometimes they mostly only have the big products.

You won’t believe what I found at Target today - a big bottle of hand sanitizer! It has been months! Not Purell brand, but seems as good.
