Butter and cheese for the freezer.
Bread flour..yeast. Plain flour, self raising flour. Raisins for scones.
Sugar, tea bags, coffee, coffee mate.
All sauces and pickles.
Tins of everything..fill the freezer with meat and veg and fish.

Toiletries of all descriptions.
Toilet rolls by the 100.

Basically brexit part two.
Hubby reckons Tesco will be sending the driver round here so they can fill their shelves.

Stocks of some stuff is already unavailable.
Hand sanitizer is like hens teeth.

Hubby has always called me a war bride because I stock up when stuff is on offer, comes in handy at times mind.
