My first thought was to raid Swamp’s Cartel and Emporium, but then I remembered the ‘gator guards.
This is a fun game. I tried to get myself out of prepper mindset and go for comfort items. Things that might not have a long shelf life, but that’s okay because you figure you’d consume or barter those things in short order. About half successful.
First the cart. Since you only have one, you want to make sure to get one of those big old metal ones, not those new plastic things that they made skinnier to fit down narrow aisles full of paralyzed shoppers who stop dead in the middle of the bread row.
First stop, case of beer (bottles), six packs of Coke, Mountain Dew, Dr. Pepper. Big bag of dry cat food that I’m too cheap to buy usually. That would probably mostly fill up bottom rack. While I’m there, a few catnip toys and the froofy gourmet cat food that her majesty prefers. (No, it’s not all about the cat.)*
I’d also get some baby formula and rice cereal, just in case. Hard candy, chocolate bars, chocolate chips, brownie mix, baking powder, extra oil, spices like vanilla beans, whole nutmeg, peppercorns, cloves, mixed spices like lemon pepper, Adobo. Truvia, coffee coffee coffee (whole beans). Jello and pudding mixes.
Kitchen scissors, ice cube trays, paper plates, bowls, and cups. Batteries, flashlights, lamp oil, still more matches and disposible lighters. Surf wax for coating cheese.
Hard cheese. Eggs. More cheese.
Peroxide, Rubbing alcohol, vitamins, protein powder, disposable razors. Puzzle books, coloring books, trashy romances.
The problem I see here is that I’m counting on my shopping cart being bottomless, like Mary Poppins’ satchel. And overestimating my ability to get all that stuff in the time alotted.
I’d take the cart, too, though.
*The cat, of course, thinks differently
