Thread: shortages.

  1. #1

    shortages.

    so many parts are in short supply.
    two examples from the camper/rv industry.
    1. certain nuts that hold the steering together can't be located by one of nations best factories.
    they built the camper, and had to set a number of them aside, waiting for these nuts.
    2. very large high end furniture manufacturer closes factory. because of just in time delivery practice, there is no warehouse full of chairs and sofas available for rv manufacturers to use in coaches... a good side of this is that some small companies are losing the big dog competitor and they are ramping up as fast as they can.

    but, it looks like we will be having more shortages... in food isle at grocery store, auto parts, seeds, tools... i guess a lot of this stuff is problem with letting china having too much sway..

    guess i'm going shopping in the next few days... stocking up on some fan belts and filters wouldn't be a bad idea...

    So right RR. Each week I look at the grocery ads in my little town. No sales on canned goods. In the stores, not much in-stock. Ms. Foster likes a specific soup. Wally had two, Ingles had two. No chicken noodle for me. Many empty spots. I was listening to a podcast a few weeks ago. Someone from the food industry stated that the can liners are done in China. Slow shipping from there. He also said that little things like the plastic tops for ketchup bottles, etc come from China as well and the US producers aren’t getting constant shipments. However, the one gallon dried bags of soup were in stock, as were the small pouches of tuna. BTW, Wally has their own brand of tuna pouches that has a longer shelf life. Good stuff. I tried the single serving pouch of Starkist Chicken Creations. Not good. A friend suggested purchasing glass jars of products where possible. The jars can be cleaned and re used by-vacuuming the air out. Good for dried goods like pasta, beans, etc.

    had a patient, who works for Pepsi as a delivery guy, said that due to aluminum shortage Pepsi has had to shut down production of at least 6 flavors, and he expects more to shut down in the near future.

    So as we see packaging products disappear, we will see less in the stores....aluminum, steel, wood, plastics, etc.

    Grocery stores?
    Don't go there very much anymore.
    Been finding price and availability from Amazon Prime Pantry.
    Gas is cheap but it still costs me some to drive to the store.
    I buy flats or such of whatever I buy at amazon prime pantry
    Looking at the sales and cost leaders at the grocery special emails I get, I am paying less at amazon and shipping is free.
    Amazon is what it is but I'm taking advantage of the least cost options.
