Sadly, not really, anyone who we’d normally ask for that sort of thing is higher-risk than we are and similarly isolating.
Here, everyone seems to have the same idea re going early or late… we tried that but our city stores are small and always packed, now that they’ve done away with capacity limits. Sigh.
Keeping a stocked pantry is definitely part of our issue as well. I have never in my life had so much food in the house, same for the cat food stash. I keep worrying that everything’s going to go to shit again or the supply chain issues that happened a year ago will return. That is probably ridiculous and I do not need to keep a stash of EVERYTHING and stocking up on EVERYTHING when I see it’s available. Our supply chain is much better but there’s still random stuff we can’t find sometimes, staples like tofu or certain fruits or veg. Like, we couldn’t get any green onions for a few weeks? WTF?
I do try and keep a stash of stuff Boyfriend eats often, as he is way less flexible around food than I am. I could do a better job of forcing myself to use what I have as I don’t mind making substitutions when necessary.
We’re bad about takeout too. We try to limit it to once a week but lately we’ve been failing at that for no reason other than “fuck it, everything sucks, let’s order something delicious.”
