I didn't know that Supercheap would match BCF prices - thought they were under the same owner. BCF had an awning side wall for $62.99, or $42.99 for club members, and one in stock. But that was "on hold for a customer" (I'm a customer, I'll take it) but they couldn't find it. At SCA, the similar article was $99.99, but they discounted it $47 to match a competitor price, then another $10 for club membership. And when I went to pay they found I had a $10 loyalty credit. So, $32.99. I won't tell you where in case someone cops some management flak.

One of our neighbours actually buys her toilet paper in bulk annually. She  got her pallet of over 600 rolls in just before the panic buying started. So she'll be right for the bog roll apocalypse.

They are a family of 5 with 3 teenagers.
As someone also putting up with 2 teenagers and a 20yo, I can understand. I'm sure someone must be eating ours the amount we go through....
I normally buy a 24 or 20 pack most fortnights to maintain safe stock levels
Lucky I bought a pack before the shelves were cleared. Next shopping might be interesting. Might have to buy a ream of a4 paper.....or a few lettuces.....

Perhaps supermarkets should be installing these.

Aldi have some screw in tent pegs at the moment, $10 for 20 pegs, look identical to me (apart from colour) to the ones bunnings normally sell for $20 for 15. https://www.catalogueau.com/aldi/aldi-catalogue-special-buys-week-13-2020/#8

Bunnings seem to have pulled theirs from their website at the moment which they seem to do when ALDI has something comparative for cheaper. But here is a link that shoes their normal price https://pricehipster.com/product/AsKAVNQ_Gi3Dog4pH_lY6Q~HJ1Ki6pa~au
