    How you are all managing the ‘bathroom commodities’ situation. :D
    None to be found over my way. It’s looking grim. :headbang: :eek:

    We buy our toilet rolls (in a pack of 48) from a hospitality/packaging shop. They also stock cleaning stuff etc in bulk. Keep it fairly quiet!

    Bought a 24 pack of T/P yesterday, not because I am hording, it's that my brother is a supervisor in a supermarket and he gets a discount. It saves me buying any for a couple of months and works out at 33p a roll.

    Wow. That’s cheap.
    We don’t buy in bulk. We get the double rolls when needed. But....

    We have been buying these for the past 3 years - better quality, better price and 400 sheet rolls. We have saved heaps and only buy every few months.;)

    The only thing you can't get around here is hand sanitiser, had to get mine from an E shop at £9 for a 50ml bottle :eek:. Only need it as I'm jaunting off on holiday this morning and want to protect myself at the airport. I'm a smoker so my hands will be going near my face.

    We have a double problem in our household. Hubby is due for CT scans this week. If things aren’t good then that will mean chemo again. We have to be extra careful with germs and bugs, hand sanitiser is a must if we have to go down that path. And chemo means....you know what I mean...:rolleyes: four ply.
    We went over to the coast last weekend to visit with our boy and on the way we popped into a little community craft shop and lo and behold, a little hand sanitiser thing that clips onto a handbag with a bottle of it in the pocket. It cost a fortune but at least we have that one. Aldi had hand wipes at the checkout so I bought those as well. We don’t usually use hand sanitiser but they are great when you are on the road. Soap and water has always been our cleanser of choice. And dont use the hot hand drier. That’s a no no.

    There seems to be a few wholesalers in Bathurst - may be worth giving them a ring to check availability of what you need - in the quantities you may (hopefully not) need.

    I just noticed that you are in NSW....certainly on the ball aren’t I.
    If worse comes to worse we have a place here too. Thanks. So far we are OK.
    IGA had two 4 packs left on the shelf on Thursday so another lady and I, shared. Then had a chat and solved the problems of the country. :rolleyes:
    @Phil the Searcher is that photo on your avatar, Forster Tuncurry?

    Close, Gran Canaria. (6 confirmed cases but at 6pm last night Wales had 34)
    That would mean I get a longer holiday :D

    I was very lucky, when the family moved in before christmas they came with a box of 48 rolls that daughter in law orders over the net, I was still using the box after they left and surprise one morning, another box was delivered, My local Aldi has had empty shelves the last few times I've been in there. As of this morning after the new measures announced yesterday there has been panic buying of everything and massive queue's at the checkouts, im hoping there is food to buy on shopping day this week.

    I’m not keen on plane travel, mostly the cramped conditions so at least it isn’t a long haul flight. About as long as from Sydney to Perth. Have a great time and spare a thought for us :sceptical:

    Here the shelves are bare.. no toilet paper, no hand sanitizer, no flour, no rice, no pasta, no sanitary wipes ( Like Lysol wipes), very little bleach and other cleaners, very few canned goods..it is crazy. We do have about 25 acres of toilet paper in its raw form on our property so will maybe have to get to work!!
