Lol, I had people looking at me all funny cos I got about 40 coconut milks.
But iv always naught like that when they are half private as I save about $500 a year doing it that way.
They go on sale for half price regularly and when I do I bulk buy cos we go through almost one a day. I felt people eyeballing me yesterday lol.

When it was 2 mills per person it was so painful we changed what we eat because I didn’t wanna come to the shops every second day.

I really hope people don’t act like idiots again.

We have 4 boys and 1 girl.
Plus my husband and I so we will all have a smoothie a day. Or cereal/granola with coconut milk. Chia pudding. Curries. We use it a lot. All of us would use at least a glass a day of it.

For the smoothies, use over ripe bananas , raspberries and coconut milk, my kids said it tastes like cupcakes when they were little.
Plus you’ll get the benefits of super ripe bananas which they usually won’t eat.
I use the frozen raspberries and I get “ready to rot” banana boxs from the grocer for $5-$10 and freeze most of it.
When organic raspberry bags are on special I will bulk buy them too as they are the same price as normal
I’m one of those people who have super low grocery bills (we spend about $180-$200 a week) and this is the sort of things I do to feed kids healthy diets on a budget.
I also make my own granola. Tastes way better than the store bought stuff.

Coco quench is the best in my opinion it’s thicker than most of them.

Funnily enough we were out of toilet paper yesterday so I stopped by the shop in the morning, got a pack for the kids toilet and a pack for our ensuite toilet, like I always do - 5 kids go through toilet paper incredibly fast. My husband stopped by at the same shop after work (not knowing I'd already been) and there was no toilet paper on the shelf.
We're in WA btw.

my friend said she got the last packet on the shelf at Coles (WA) We had seen each other in the morning and she said she had to pop into the shop to get some tp, not knowing all this was going on. She asked staff where all the tp was and she was told what's been announced that morning

It’s happening all over the country, not just in Vic. The supermarkets acted quickly this time to put purchase restrictions back in place.

Because panic buying began again in Victoria following the spike in new cases.

Yeah the restrictions are nationwide. My friend works for Coles and they were told this, this morning. After work, she'd gone into Aldi (traitor I know 🤣) and she said people were walking out with bundles of toilet paper. We're in Perth

Well, if the rest of the country is dumb enough to follow suit, that doesn’t say much for the amount of common sense & decency we Aussie’s have, does it?

I’m in SA and there’s no restrictions. Did Foodland and woolies today. Shelves full, no restrictions.

Idiots that can't follow the rules do not make good Australians. Everyone is keeping their borders closed because of your ability to spread disease

ANSWER

Any other states that have reintroduced restrictions have done it to avoid people panic buying and stripping the shelves bare. Even if it hasn't hit the other states, people tend to save things for a rainy day (or so to speak)

I suspected it would happen so I grabbed a couple of extra bits and pieces with my last shop. Not excessive just a couple of extra tins of tomatoes and flour etc.

Yes, it has! The supermarket staff were telling me today people were coming in to buy 'just in case'. That's panic buying, people! STOP IT!!

We're going away next week so now I'm packing loo paper & most staples we need in case people go insane again & we can't get any there. It's ridiculous.
