We thought we wouldn't see this trend again until the zombies came up from the valley. It's worse, the democrats are coming here, voting and bringing the threat of closing down the country for three more months!

The costco shelves are almost barren of TP and paper towels...AGAIN! We have one costco to serve all of northern AZ, two of the largest counties in this state with a combined population of about 385,000 people. The costco rep said their new store policy is to stock up the stores closest to their 'distribution centers' with the better paper products and the rest receive their cheap kirkland brands.

AZ, I am not sure how to respond. I guess there could be 'some' Democrats moving to Arizona but WHY would they?? They get everything FREE in Kalifornia. Education, schooling, welfare benefits, etc. And myself and others stuck (temporarily) in Kali are paying for them. What reason would Democrats have to go to Arizona and start over again?

People are leaving Kali in droves to get away from this Democratic bullshit. Did the whole Country turn Democrat since Sleepy Joe won the Presidency? I think not. Some of the election winners are confusing, Kelly? an anti-gunner in a gun free state? how did that happen.

I don't have statistics but people are leaving Kali to get away from shit. Those that have or want the shit are not leaving. Why would they?

Our Costco has been out of TP and Towels for weeks! I believe it is the media promoting the coming riots after the election that has caused hoarding again. crickets...crickets..still waiting for the riots which never materialized! Too much media.

So, next year I will be a proud REPUBLICAN who will see you in Preskit Smile

P.S., I will bring you some TP!!

Paper goods come straight from the vendor, same as bottled water, soda, dog food, and others. It started when rumors of European lockdowns first hit.

Yeah. We buy as needed and the Commie pricks that are hording it are leaving us in a predicament. We are running low and none in Costco for the past couple weeks now. So help me God if I have to use my socks...

Like ammo, we now keep a reserve pack of paper products on hand. Anymore its turning into good practice if you have the room.

Flagstaff has a Sam’s Club. I heard they were limiting customers to one case per sale. I don’t go there, too much like WalMart.

Walmart (wallyworld) doesn't offer a frequent flyer card, but they should. If so, my wife would get a gold card. She's heard of the pandamic, she's a nurse. Doesn't matter, she does her daily running and WW is prime on the list. Tomorrow will be an early stop. Along with Krogers. Every damn'd monday no less.

Guess she can enjoy it the way she wants. I'm sleeping in. Doesn't matter, if she gets covid, so will I. She'll just have more fun getting it.

But back to basics. If you walked into a wally world and they had cases of 22s on the shelf, you'd buy in big. Until you have a few cases of TP or Bounty you should do the same. I'm not suggesting you buy at high prices or a lifetime supply. But enough you won't suffer.

With the idiots they seem to have elected, you can expect prices to start rising. If you can afford it, buy some supplies. Not getting cheaper and your savings account isn't paying anything. You don't need paper towels, cloth will work. You might not need TP, but no one will want to be around you. Frown

AZ, I’m guessing you shop at the same Costco I shop at, Prescott. I was there last weekend and we were getting low on paper towels and good TP.
So I got a case of each. (I have half a case of Kirkland TP, but Charming is preferred).

I got lucky. I hadn’t planned this, but seeing that shelves are getting wiped out again nation wide, I’m glad we did.

As far as the Kalifornians invading our state, it really is happening. They bought a home in Kali thirty or forty years ago. They have paid it off, and bought it for $50k. They’re wanting to retire somewhere it doesn’t get too cold, is dry, and easy on the lungs and arthritis.

So they list their house, and sell it for a million dollars. Move here, buy a half a million home that is quite nice, and spend the other half a million golfing, and trying to adopt the same shitty laws and policies that they had in Kali.

Under the obama era, the area lost Sam's Club and two major grocery stores. That left the remaining grocery stores overwhelmed. The local economy was doing very well under President Trump, then the ccp crud hit which has had a serious effect on our mountain communities in spite of the fact that we've had relatively low % of crud cases and deaths. But now they're reporting a "surge". Seems to coincidental with the election, doesn't it.

We're not opposed to people moving to AZ from oppressive east coast and west coast states because of government, crime, taxes, weather, etc. We applaud them for making the decision. So become Arizonans! We live in a nice rural county development of six and seven figure homes. Most are selling to new residents with cash. When we introduce ourselves to many complain about AZ compared to BFE where they came from. Their politics are still primarily liberal. It makes my wife cringe when I tell them to leave if they don't like it.

We're natives of AZ. We've seen it go from Barry Goldwater red, to obama purple and now (potentially) biden blue. The majority of voters in Yavapai County voted for President Trump. 15,000 people crammed into our little airport to see his recent rally. Unfortunately, Maricopa and Pima counties will determine the future of AZ. There are approx. 70,000 votes from around the state yet to be counted. We'll see.

For the first time in our lives, we're talking about moving out of AZ.

TP hoarding chaps my ass.....

Then again wifes got two cases here, think I'm going to order some ass washing things to bolt on to the Kohlers, cut that paper need down big time...

Ideally, hoarding never happens...

But, by this point, it should be clear that hoarding and shortages are not an uncommon occurrence.

I think the appropriate response is to adapt and overcome?

We stack deep anything that we consume on a regular basis that doesn't have an expiration date.

Publix has unobtainium! Non-stick Reynolds Wrap in stock now! I only bought one; left several for you guys. Also picked up a 6-pack of Charmin.

I heard a blip on the radio news today that Kroger announced it is limiting purchases of TP, paper towels, wipes, etc. I guess that makes it official, the hoarding is back on.

Visited AZ/ Flagstaff many years ago, thought it was a awesome city. But wondering is the current liberal influx in northern, ? Or southern AZ ? Or state wide?

I live in rural Va, not many if any liberal transplants in my area, Va's worse problem is NoVa, Va Beach, Ricmond.

No. If you don't have 3-4 weeks of all necessities backed up in reserve you haven't been paying attention.

You should have a cushion of 2 weeks in normal times in case of natural disasters.

How many threads have we had declaring a need to stock up and prepare?

Yeah, I don't mean to sound flippant, but you should have seen this coming.

I made it a point to stock up right before the election, expecting a Trump landslide, the election being considered a 'done deal' (whether or not buyden conceded or not) by Wednesday morning, and the inevitable leftist riots taking place.

We have several months of dog food, toilet paper, and paper towels, and I made sure to buy a butt-load of Ravioli and Ramen soup for 'just in case.'

Now, we aren't "hoarding," in that we didn't buy 30 cases of TP, but we have enough to last ourselves to April or so without buying more.

Took a trip to Costco this evening. JACKPOT!!!! Limit of one pack per member per day, so I caught my limit. They had four pallets there. My wife may make a trip tomorrow, but I don't think there will be any left. My socks are safe for now.

Elk, while socks are recyclable and mine don't have holes in them...that's a whole other dilemma, my feet would get cold. At least they are crew length. Imagine someone with anklets!! Poor S.O.B. in that situation!
