She says any of the stores she shops at (Aldi. Kroger. Walmart. Randazos) all have signs limiting purchases all over the store.

As for fresh, she only finds plentiful stock at the farmers market.

I know that I have 3 Walmarts within 20 minutes of me in here in TX and all have/or did have signs talking about limited stock on canned vegetables.

Haven't been in there since I first saw the signs so don't know if they are still up.

ETA: from her:

"Theres a lot that say limit. Usually 6 sometimes as low as 2 on things like milk now. Low stock is the biggest issue right now. Boxes and stuff lined up one deep to make the shelves look full but are far from. Empty spaces left and right."

I also haven't heard anything about this from anybody I know living in that area. I do know that there are no issues in this part of the state. The closest thing I have seen to an issue is that so far this year Hormel corned beef hash has not gone on sale below $2 a can rather than the 99 cents I usually buy them at twice a year, and Spam has only been 99 cents once this year instead of twice.

2.2 pound containers of good flavorful chicken bouillon powder is available at many retail stores that cater to Hispanics & places like near wholesale stores like Smart & Final (used to be Cash & Carry) often stock it.

For LTS, simply freeze the containers. [IMG class=inlineimg]https://www.survivalistboards.com/images/smilies/wink.gif[/IMG]

Another awesome tip! Thank you!!!!

If possible you should really try to make a connection with an independent restaurant owner, or better yet their sales reps. When the warehouse needs to clear a slot to make room for a new item they will sell at cost or below. Or some of their bulk prices are just better on a regular basis i.e. chicken breast 40lbs case at .82/lbs.

I don't even get a second look when I do my big yearly shopping trip at the wholesaler.
They probably think that I run a BBQ joint.
