Was just at Publix this morning; certain types of packaged cheese, packaged (not deli) cold cuts and sausages


Just got back from Publix. No shortages or empty shelves except Italian Parsley which was in the back unstocked. I do not go down the cat & dog aisle so I don't know. I order my dog's food online & he eats green beans & watermelon on the side.

If your seeing shortages in paint it’s because the binder (glue) that is being used is a very cheap one and not quality. Products that are primarily Poly Vinyls, Esters, Vinyl acrylics are being used. That’s way the majority of SW products are not available, even my company’s products that use them are in short supply, inexpensive ingredients. Try a higher quality product that uses 100% acrylics. Price does not equate to quality in the paint

Kellog's Cracklin Oat Bran. Can't find it anywhere.


I just got home from making a grocery run at my nearby favorite grocery.

They had exactly 1 box of the Cracklin Oat Bran.
Weird, huh.

The only shortages I've seen are of cashiers at big box and grocery stores and waitresses at restaurants.

No paper products at Costco today. Paper towels, TP, napkins, ... nothing.

Now, I have no use for napkins and I have about 3 years worth of TP (not unusual as I am a rather accomplished prepper), but I do go through paper towels and I'm down to about four of the big packs, so I figured I'd swing in and pick one up whilst I was in town. Nope.

And, to top it all off, now you have to order and pay for (using a card) your $1.50 hot dog at a "kiosk" that is located about six feet away from the counter...where the cash registers used to be. Neither I nor the fella in front of me was too happy with this development and he made the comment that apparently it's too difficult to count out $1.50. Makes much more sense to spend thousands on card readers. Roll Eyes

I'm beginning to question my membership there.

That's nearly revolt-worthy all by itself.

I can in the fall and cannot find Mason jars. I've looked all summer at Walmart, Target, large chain grocery, and farm and home stores. They're all out and say they don't know when they'll come back in stock.

The bread we have used for years is just not on the shelves. Also a cookie is seldom in stock. Wife likes coke In the small glass bottles. None available.
The worst thing is the lack of help in the grocery store and restaurants. Wait in check out line every trip to store.

Interesting how different folks can view the same change. Our Costcos have and SAMs clubs have changed over to the food court kiosks at least a year ago. I love them. Walk up tap hot dog combo picture on the screen, tap pay, tap my credit card (or just hold my watch near the machine), grab receipt, literally 30 seconds total max. There are 4 to six kiosks instead of two registers and the two previous register people are now pumping out twice the food twice as fast and are able to keep their gloves on and not handle snot covered cash in between making orders of hot dogs and pizza.

And the SAM's club pay by app is the bomb. I walk around the store scanning items with my iPhone as I drop them in the basket, press the pay button in the app (phone already has credit card stored), walk to the front door where they scan my phone and scan a couple of random items in my basket and I am out the door.

One of my grocery stores has a sign at each checkout counter apologising for their change shortage, and asking customers to pay with exact change if they can.

I don't recall specifically, but I've noticed that regular type stuff I want to pick up, is empty on the shelf, as in, how in the hell would that be missing, it's always there, except for today.
