Weirdly I bought a 5l bottle of Vinegar from Costco before all this panic buying started (literally the week before).They may have removed limits but at my local they have still not got any stock of Vinegar (the white kind for cleaning), my preferred laundry liquid (am very sensitive to some of the perfumes so there is only two brands I use). There is still no toilet paper, no tissues, no anttbacterial wipes (only useless baby wipes), no liquid soap (except Pears brand), no hand santiser, no pasta on the shelves - just easter eggs in the spot where they should be. Apprently if you want TP or Tissues you have to luck being in store when they personally hand out a few packets each day.
I keep reading that things have normalised but that doesnt appear to be the case in the inner suburbs of Sydney based on my and friends experiences (all living within 8kms of the CBD).
I still think they need to use the data they have to allow those of us who have not bought any of these items in last couple of months first dibs.
We sometimes have a random pumpkin growing in our lemon tree - its hangs down so its quite weird shape but that just depends on if the vines grow or not from the previous season, we dont do anything other than fertilise the lemon tree with some citrus Boost & Feed.I have a self-seeded pumpkin plant taking over the backyard. Reckon it's left its run a bit late though.
Haha mine is growing in the same garden bed as my lemon tree!We sometimes have a random pumpkin growing in our lemon tree - its hangs down so its quite weird shape but that just depends on if the vines grow or not from the previous season, we dont do anything other than fertilise the lemon tree with some citrus Boost & Feed.
Used this for mum in law last week - very good. I wish we could amend the order like the old days because she wanted to add to it so I had to cancel order and was lucky to get similar slot for new order. I blame the Spam.Woolworths has increased the "Priority Delivery Hubs" from 41 to 150. List of stores https://www.woolworths.com.au/shop/discover/community/news/is-your-store-a-priority-delivery-hub (some CBR stores listed in NSW).
These stores will be open to the public from 9am to 6pm (instead of 7am to 8pm of other stores) and won't be running the 7-8am weekday "Community Hour". (hours for WA stores slightly different)
Outside those hours, they'll be picking delivery orders.
Customers who have been approved for Priority Assistance will be able to place orders 6 days out, pending window availability.
Normal delivery customers (ie, not Priority Assistance approved) will be able to place orders 24 hours out, if there are any delivery slots remaining after the Priority Assistance orders are in.
They'll be monitoring orders and cancelling as needed to prevent people placing multiple orders and hogging all the slots.
Funny, I tend to bulk buy when things are on sale - I got an amazing deal from Amazon on washing liquid and fabric softener about 9 months ago. Still not even halfway through what I bought, and storing it is a little issue in my one bedroom apartment but in times like this I could not care less.During shop small, I always end up filling the garage with toilet paper from chemists as I just run out of stuff to buy. The other half cracks the sads and moans about how much TP is scattered around. Needless to say... haven't heard so much complaining for the last few weeks
They're making you work hard for it then, was there a treasure map too at the store entrance?Checked in at the local Coles after having my venesection today.only liquid soap was 1 dispenser of dettol hand wash.it was hidden under a jumble of empty boxes.Win.
Ditto, and we usually buy TP about 100 rolls at a time. Guess when we just started to run low? Yep, just as soon as the panic buying started. On self isolation at the moment and no delivery slots for 3 weeks so fingers crossed we'll make it over the finish line......Funny, I tend to bulk buy when things are on sale - I got an amazing deal from Amazon on washing liquid and fabric softener about 9 months ago.

I heard from a friend that a Woolies store where his son works deliberately keeps the tp in the stock room and not put it out on the empty shelves? Much truth in that?
