On my third try this morning I scored two packs of toilet paper. The wife is going to be proud of me when she gets home from work today.

National rationing is not happening. Our (Cleveland) stores are chock full of toilet paper.
Does this mean that that there is a greater need here because we are full of - - --?

Around here, if you don't get out looking in the morning, you will find none. Advantage - Retiree.

The store had a limit of two per customer. Which is fair.

I buy it every time I see it. Now we're running out of bathroom(s). Don't care. Who knows how long we'll be short?

This toilet paper thing is just crazy. I'm a mini prepper type and toilet paper has never been that important to stock up on....I could understand this a little bit if it was a stomach flu, but it's not. I think I told y'all the story that I was coming out of a dollar general in Columbus ga and a yickyack came running out of the store with toilet paper, yes a shoplifter, that grabbed the toilet paper.......I heard that some yickyack called 911 and told them that he was out of.... yes toilet paper.... I mean gosh....


plenty of it around here though....can get it in the big stores like sams but most everywhere else it's available....

Wife heard this explanation. There are two grades of toilet paper, commercial and home. People have largely quit pooping for profit, and home use is subsequently up 40%. So that's part of it.

Perhaps businesses can save money during this time by not having to buy the toilet paper...
