24. Same, but slightly different, here.

We have no choice but Walmart. We have opted for free curbside pickup after ordering online. We started not getting produce or meat there at all, nor wine since their choices are so slim. But nobody here wears a mask--nobody--and so we don't want to go to actual grocery stores. So far the produce has been fine from them, we only get chicken or ground beef, and we each found an acceptable wine so that is all we get now. If they are out of an item we either adapt the recipe or skip that recipe plan entirely. It takes us 5 minutes to pick up an order that would take over an hour to shop for in an actual store. We have been out in public exactly one time in the last 16 or so days, and that was to take trash to the dumpsters (no trash pickup either, small town). Since it's Walmart and we opt for their store brand if it is something like mushroom soup to go in a recipe, we are spending less on food.

I think a lot of people are discovering this sort of thing now.
