Better get stocked up now for the Holidays
If you are able, you should buy your food for the holidays now. Might be a good idea to prepare for more than that actually

Kroger is going on strike starting tomorrow (or so I heard) so shelf stocking might be a problem and the teamsters won't cross a picket line so who knows if the stores will be resupplied and shelves restocked.

add to that...

The teamsters union is calling for a nationwide shutdown from November 26th thru the 29th. 4 days.

Most major stores have 3 days worth of supplies in their stockroom and that is it.

Might not be a problem at all...might be a real problem for some.

If you can, plan accordingly

Re: Better get stocked up now for the Holidays
Going tonight to hopefully get ahead of the masses and get the last few things we need for Holidays.

Still going to load up on more of the basics as the "darkest winter" they keep telling us is coming is almost upon us. Better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.

I'd take what they are saying to heart. They are warning those with eyes that can see that they are going to cause a calamity. If you go hungry, that is your fault for not heeding their warnings.

bump

It's important that people know about the strikes.

I will bump every so often to make sure people are aware this is coming.

Like I said, it might be nothing of consequence for some...it might be a big deal for others

Kroger strike is true - at least in Houston - where the epicenter is.

Yes

Teamsters Union is calling for a nationwide shutdown from Nov 26 thru the 29th. 4 day shutdown

Right at Thanksgiving so there will be few grocery stores getting restocked right before the holiday.

Plan accordingly

Re: Better get stocked up now for the Holidays
good advice..

i got cans galore of food all through the summer...lots of rice, pasta, spices, etc..

i have a small freezer and i dont usually holidays traditioonally but im good or i got a lot of lunches bought for the next year.

dont forget all the other stuff, TP, razors, soap, cleamning stuff, etc...three hundred emergency candles, boxes of matches, etc

you are going to use this stuff in the next year, and prices will probably be higher so if you got the money, at least get a couple months worth..

stay safe and prepared GLP

Or you could just get a "head" start on switching to cannibalism. I'm sure your neighbors could give you a "hand" if you're having trouble on the grill. Just don't break a leg, the bones could splinter and ruin the meat. Better to saw as needed, but the best way to carve a caiman is to pop the joints and ligaments, and slice through the cartilage with a filet knife. ohyeah

So here's the thing about 560, Jimmy Hoffa boys, NJ, were taken down by the feds in the 80's which led to the Mob war in NYC. Frank DeCicco (Gambino family) was killed by a car bomb in Brooklyn in 1986.

The Five Families — the Luccheses, the Gambinos, the Genoveses, the Colombos and the Bonannos. And the slaying of Gambino head Paul Castellano (fat Paulie) in 1985, was the work young John Gotti.

Trump was big in those days, he was building casinos in Atlantic City. Just sayin.

Re: Better get stocked up now for the Holidays
Agreed - had this thought myself.

We did a major stocking up on general everday fare last week.

This week I got in the holiday wines we like for special dinners.

This weekend I'll be shopping for the special holiday meal foods we like - at least, those we can get in advance.

Variety on specialty foods is apt to get slim. I expect staples to continue wide availbility but not always on the shelf... like earlier this year... if you wanted just "soup" you could probably find soup, but if you wanted a particular brand and type, you may have to hunt... or wait.

"Wait" doesn't work with holidays. So the smart folks are looking to acquire asap those classic holiday favorites. I already made sure to get the gluten-free turkey gravy mix that is sometimes difficult to find. This weekend I'll be looking for condensed milk for the pumpkin pie, and gluten free crust. Takes up valuable freezer space but man, it just isn't thanksgiving without pumpkin pie.

Snow? If you want to have a big natural fridge/pantry that will last long into the summer, you need to make a dug-out and get big blocks of ice from a nearby river, or lake and just put them inside the dug-out. That's what people used to do here in the pre-fridge era. Anyway, such a dug-out can be quite cool even without the ice.
