I think the idea behind the TP is that if supplies are interrupted, whether through infrastructure problem or through being quarantined without anyone to bring you stuff, TP will be something you definitely wish you had plenty of.

I frequently run into this problem anyway. Everybody in the house seems to think I am the only person who can buy tp and they don’t even bother to ‘remind’ me.

The rest of the world is stocking up on toilet paper but Americans are stocking up on bullets.

It's the coronavirus, not a zombie apocolypse. 😂😂😉😷🔫

 

What's the first thing we learned in kindergarten? We share.

I won't need guns and ammo.

I have stocked up on food, however. No waste there; what we don't need for coronavirus in-home isolation, will be eaten later.

I live in a bordering city to Kirkland, Wa. The TP obsession is just insanity. TP, Clorox, hand sanitizer, Tylenol, ibuprofen, cold and flu OTC MEDS,  ALL GONE! It took me DAYS to get into Costco for my weekly shopping run. Target is empty and you barely see a handful of people in the store.
 

I just don’t get the obsession with the TP. You would think they would stock up on protein bars and other food? 

Honestly, no one is thinking in our area. Everyone is too crazed and freaked out, you can literally see it on their faces. No one wants to talk to anyone. 
 

I'm concerned for our elderly since I work in senior care, but still though... I can’t understand this panic. I take a ton of precaution near our elderly but when I’m out and about I just try to wash my hands more, that’s it.

I personally feel that this has been circulating for a long time in our community but we just haven’t tested for it. I know in my community a ton of us were sick at the begging of January with similar symptoms to COVID-19 but no one batted an eye then. 
 

If the production lines do slow down, you would think they would stock up on other necessities like baby diapers, wipes, feminine hygiene products, formula, non perishable foods, and the like?  Still plenty of those, and plenty of natural cleaning supplies LOL!

We have done TP as well, but also pet food, dried goods, frozen foods (mostly meat), pasta, canned tomatoes (for pasta sauce), flour (hubbie bakes artisan breads) and wine. We did get one can of Lysol spray.
