Why Does Amarillo Insist on Panic Shopping Due to Snow?
It never seems to fail. We find out about snow and we have to run out and buy up everything? Why? I don't get it.
Are You Guilty of Panic Shopping?
We have had snow three weeks in a row. Why do we continue to do this? I mean, yes it may be crazy a couple of days but that is it. No reason to buy out the stores. We do it all the time. This week was no different.
I went to Market Street on Monday to buy groceries. I thought on a Monday afternoon it would be great. The weather was nice. Yes, we knew the weather was going to get bad. It was only going to be a couple days. I just wanted normal groceries.
The store was crazy. I couldn't find some things I needed. It was hard to find plain, normal spaghetti noodles. I found one of the very few boxes and brands left.
Oh and don't get me started on garlic bread. My daughter wanted plain garlic bread. We didn't want the kind with cheese on it. It was hard to come by just a small box of garlic bread.
The shelves were empty. I finally found regular garlic bread but I had to buy the BIG box so now I have garlic bread for awhile.
Another thing on my normal shopping list was Gatorade. Just a bottle or two. The shelves were empty.
So Amarillo do better. Every time it snows you don't have stock up for the end of the world. I promise you. Just get what you need on a daily basis. It shouldn't be the end of the world feeling every single week.
We are going to be ok.
