My DH is finally on board with my prepping but I looked around and ordered items as I went along without him knowing about it. Now he likes it when I pull out surprises.People will wake up and realize just how much of the goods we purchase come from china. I try to get my DH to understand this but he refuses to believe it. There was something yesterday I suggested he get extra on and he said there is plenty in the warehouses. I just shake my head. He will be upset when he can't replace things he uses in all the things he does around here, but he will not go hungry, because I've got that covered.
He took his tractor to be repaired two weeks ago but we've not heard anything from them. He bought it in October 2019.
My Target doesn't have much shoe-wise either. Gonna have to try to find a real shoe store that's open, if there even are any left.Lots of small air conditioners at Home Depot yesterday in Ohio. Kroger’s only had shrimp rings and the small one was $14 bucks! No shrimp in the frozen food section. And lastly, Target....my wife and daughter dragged me in there. Holes everywhere in clothing and shoes. Normally there would be tons of summer items for sale, not much at all. Food section looked well stocked.
The Farm Raised garbage - they dye it pink so it vaguely resembles salmon and tastes awful! We only buy wild caught and even then you really have to read the label because most of it is really farm raised, just wild caught which sounds like a totally oxymoron to me.Our Kroger looked “fairly” normal on Sunday , finally.
Except for the beef section. It was very poor on selection and what was there, was too pricey.
Chicken well stocked.
Pork, was pretty good and stocked but higher prices...They still have those piles of Smithfield bacon lol... no one wants their crap.
Frozen veggies is still the last bastion of emptiness. All that’s left are the expensive and organic brands that I can’t agford to fill the freezer with. It’s like the toilet paper isle was, all over again! Weird.
Adding: salmon has been at a good price but I can never remember which ones are no-no’s.... which ones are supposedly full of toxins? I bought it anyway.
It is expensive but worth it. I have been happy with Ed Kasiloff over the years and also buy from Vital Choice. Our area has no fish except that awful farm raised.The Farm Raised garbage - they dye it pink so it vaguely resembles salmon and tastes awful!

Prefer Copper River Salmon, but not at the prices these days. I'm totally not a fish eater unless it's out of the water, cleaned and into the frying pan. Rest of it just tastes, well, fishy (which means it's old).
Shoes: went to my shoe store for more diabetic socks (Xelero brand) but company has just gone out of business. Decided to get another pair of new balance diabetic rated extra wide tennis shoes.....owner said he was really worried about supply now cause 99% of tennis shoe components are from China and Vietnam. Even New Balance (which I thought was all American made) is sourced components from Asia. Said Brooks brand looks to have best supply chain.
