My current to-get list is:
guaifenesin
sea salt for fermenting the veg we have
chem-free seeds for growing fresh sprouts

In addition to those things, I'll be doing my normal shopping in the next couple days. We'll see what's left when I get there!
I've got enough loratadine to get me through mid April, so might go today to see if I can find some. Hmmm, I wonder if they will extend tax due dates?
MD has already extended some tax due dates. I hear that the Feds are contemplating extending due dates for individuals. We are supposed to hear more next week.

Among other things, I stocked up on stir-in fiber. Food supplies seem plenteous now, but who knows what will happen over time. Some of the emergency foods are low in fiber, and the hubby would probably stage a starvation protest instead of eating beans and legumes more often. So, I will add fiber if that becomes necessary.

Celery and carrots are high in fiber. It's easy to sneak them into soups and stews, and generally they are a welcome addition to even picky eaters.
Flour and yeast were sold out when I placed my last order. I am trying a different strategy. I asked for one of 3 separate brands and types. Bleached, unbleached, etc. Hopefully I will get SOMETHING. I did the same thing with the yeast. Ordered 3 different types.
Flour
Pasta
Spaghetti Sauce
Cereal - Frosted Flakes and Trader Joe's Oat cereal
Almond Milk
Bisquick
beef hot dogs
JAS, I have seasonal allergies every season. I get a 365 pill bottle of generic Claritan or Zyrtec once a year from BJ's. With the annual coupon, it costs $14.

Nothing. We now have enough of everything to survive three or four consecutive quarantines (or one long one). I would not mind a few trips to the grocery store to fetch perishables, but I can live without them. We could get an extra freezer, but that might be overkill...

I found some at Dollar Tree today. Each box had 14 pills, I got 4 boxes so I'm good til June. I don't have a BJ's membership and it's not close to home, anyway. Dollar Tree is 3 miles away. I went right after my nearby dinner shop and the store was empty, so I didn't have to wait in line.

The only thing that I would like to have more of is rice. Otherwise, we are going to be quite comfortable.

Besides, panic-people buy crazy stuff. There's plenty of organic, vegan, healthy stuff left. hahaha. I bought 2 weeks worth of vegan frozen meals for work for the next two weeks. (and there was plenty more left.)

I have three vehicles completely full of gasoline. I am required to work if I am not sick. Public health & safety, etc. yada yada.

I have one husband, two college kids and a cat at home. They are not allowed out under any circumstances. Period. Apparently, I had to clarify that Starbucks runs are not ok. No joke.
You're stuck in a house with Starbucks deprived people? I tip my hat!

Stocked up on some frozen vegetables and fruits. Otherwise, I was already pretty stocked up on cleaning supplies, paper products, and pantry goods a while back. I did a big extreme couponing shop at the beginning of the year.
unsweetened apple sauce to put on all of the pancakes that I will be eating when the bread runs out, lol. A childhood favorite, no not seen as a hardship by me.

I found 4 large bottles in my emergency supplies. Good to know what I can do with it. I also like pancakes with peanut butter and maple syrup.

There was a short discussion regarding the inadequacy of my coffee grinder. I told him that he's going to have to deal with it, and there would be no mobile ordering.
That's what happens when you live with a barista. (We have some great coffee at home. I'm just out of reserve coffee, etc.)
CQ, apple sauce is also the logical side to any pork dish. that does not already include pineapple, lol.

I like honey on my pancakes.

I'm really looking forward to getting to the bottom of my freezer...it might take a couple of months, LOL.
Applesauce with pork chops must be a regional thing. I have never heard of it. I don't have any pork chops anyway LOL. It is a good substitute for sugar and eggs in baking though. i remember doing that during some diet years ago.
It is also a very Midwestern thing.

Pork chops with apples and stuffing. Yummy.

Oh man. I grew up on honey instead of syrup. Great idea for breakfast tomorrow!

There are things on my list I still haven't been able to get. Flour, honey, oranges are the most important.

No flour in Southern CA either.
Target and every grocery has honey again. Plenty of oranges here as well.
Beer, avocados (I CANNOT live without them!) and fruits. I have a pretty good pantry to deal with just about anything else.

I wish I could post photos of grocery shelves in the stores I have visited over the past few days. I was finishing up some merchandising resets before they got canceled. They were all health and beauty department, hair care in particular, so there was actually product to move around (for now). Anyway, completely empty TP shelves, packaged deli meats, soups, etc. Ridiculous.

I wonder how long it is before they buy all the shampoo and conditioner? I guess I had better go grab a couple bottles of laundry soap, too.
