    Yeah. We didn't get a chance to go in the weekdays. Have to go today or tomorrow early in the morning and get few things. I am running out of veggies.
    Are you all stocking up veggies? If so, for how many days?

    Bought few fresh veggies which has longer shelf like carrots, beets, chayote squash, onions , sweet potatoes, frozen veggies, few tomatoes etc.

    But honestly speaking I have no space in my already filled freezer. Wondering how everyone is storing stuff.

    I have had an extra upright freezer in the basement for many years. It’s coming in especially handy now.

    Many of the older people and long term NRI's, with home/garage might have a freezer in the garage, with enough space to store a whole ______. :eek: [you may fill in the blank]

    I didn't go yesterday. The corona cases are increasing everyday in my county and state. 560+ in the state and 59+ in the county. So, very scared to go out. One 12 year old got affected and getting treated in the city.
    Cases going down in your places?

    I already ran out of veggies... upcoming 2 weeks will be worse they confirmed in the news. I am in CA.

    I am scared to go out. Good thing I brought some frozen chicken, paneer big pack in the freezer I should be good.

    I am planning to wait for 2-3 weeks once it goes down I am planning to head out.

    I didn't go out yet. I am in GA. Cases are increasing rapidly day by day. I am running out of veggies and groceries. But very scared to go out. Many of my friends are going out for shopping and bought the necessary things. I am so scared. Don't know what to do. It doesn't look like the numbers will go down in 2 or 3 weeks.

    I am in CA and very scared to go out. There are 230+ cases around me with 2 confirmed deaths. I tried Costco Instacart, the delivery was quick but they haven’t updated my final bill yet (I couldn’t get everything that I ordered). I have to wait to see how they do it. Have any of you ordered groceries online from Indian stores? If so please share the links.

    I am also looking for online shopping for Indian stores. In my place, online shopping is not available. They have pick up option through email order. I didn't try it yet.
    Did you get Costco instacart on the same day?
    And did you touch and use the products on the same day as you receive? Few of my friends have put the box on one side and leave it for a day or two. They are not touching it. After 2 or 3 days, wiping it again and using it.
