Trust me, I’m not a hoarder



By Naomi Fisher 

There’s a big misconception hovering: “Everyone is hoarding because they are afraid the stores will run out of supplies.”

Nothing could be further from the truth.

Yes, we are taking food and supplies allowed.

We are taking what our homes can contain. 

For the simple reason: 

We are BEING good citizens.

We are TRYING to honor the “stay at home” edict.

But we NEED the food and supplies in our homes so we don’t have to go shopping so often.

That’s funny because when all of the paper goods permanently disappeared from the shelves, the stay at home order wouldn’t have gone into effect for another week and a half…


Well if they would buy enough for a week or even two there would be enough food left in the store for other people , think of the elderly also help out , I buy a weeks worth of groceries but I buy a larger package of meat and make two weeks out of it so I don’t have to go to the store everyday or even every week
