I went shopping at Walmart today. Milk, Stax potato chips, frozen burritos, and dog food were on my list.


Amazingly I got one of the last 36 lb. bags of dog food. The 55 lb. bags were gone. There were still a few tubes of the chips. There were no burritos but there was exactly one beef and potato chimichanga left in the freezer section so I snagged it. Milk was a lost cause. The dairy case was empty except for a few small bottles of non-dairy creamer.


OTOH the wine section was completely stocked. So was the produce section. Bread was all gone but there were buns, taco shells, bagels and various pastries.

Doesn’t bother us. We could probably live for a month just on our freezer and pantry. Another week on the food in my camping box. Then there are a few 5 gallon buckets of rice and beans and other dry foods we have squirreled away for a rainy day.
