You need to get to the shops a little bit earlier and you will get bread and bog rolls.

I know but some of us are night shift workers and can't get up early enough.

Aldi still has a 4 item policy so take 2 loaves and put one in the freezer.

Some of the supermarkets are relaxing their policy on how many items you can buy.

Hope that doesn't mean that some a*****les don't take the p*** and stock up again by buying way over the top.

There is some sort of normality in the shops again but there's still a little way to go from what I saw this week.
It's not too bad though.

They are still saying don't panic buy.
Are they sure they are actually filling up the shelves at all?
Every week I go in sainsburys now, the exact same products from the exact same shelves, in the exact same area... Are empty.

Worra surprise 🙄not.

Nee dettol wipes, nee sanatiser, or bread or milk..

Is it a free for all in the morning just for those items?

Maybe some shops could have used their brains and thought "does that customer really need 20 loaves of bread, 200 bottles of sanatiser, and 30 bottles of milk?

Has that person or anyone bought that many items before this pandemic, or are they taking the p**s and being selfish and thinking of themselves?
