On one NSW page, one desperate shopper asked fellow locals if they’d be willing to swap one hard-to-buy grocery item for another.
She writes: ‘Needing a tray of turkey mince and chicken mince can swap toilet paper. No I am not kidding.’
It wasn’t long before a fellow local was willing to take up the desperate shopper on her offer, who added: ‘I feel totally ridiculous.’
On another Buy, Swap, Sell page, another wrote: ‘I need toilet paper. I have most pantry staples and food in freezer, will swap anything.’
The desperate moves come as both Woolworths and Coles take unprecedented steps to make sure there’s more stock on shelves during the coronavirus outbreak.
