Where to find household items when Amazon, Walmart, and others are out of stock



  costco-coronavirus-out-stock-shopping

Online and physical stores are seeing disruptions in inventory, but there are plenty of other online retailers to choose from.


Jessica Dolcourt / CNET

Even if you have been working at home for a few weeks now, chances are that you still do not have everything you need . Or maybe you have polished your culinary chops during quarantine but now your knives are dull and you are tired of cooking rice on the stove but you haven't upgraded kitchen tools yet. While most aspects of your life fall into a comfortable lockdown routine one thing is still frustratingly tricky: shopping online.

That's because a month and a half in quarantine (for many), Amazon's and Walmart's online inventory is still sold out for some popular items, and Amazon has shipped non-essential goods sometimes delayed for weeks.

It's time to expand and we have shopping suggestions for all your needs. While you may miss the convenience of a one-stop shop like Amazon – especially if you are a Prime member – trying an alternative online store and going directly to the manufacturer's website can be more effective in the short term. (And if your local grocery store seems low, here are six other places to shop for food .)

With gyms across the country closed, many people are developing their own home workout routines.

Facebook Marketplace connects buyers and sellers like Craigslist does, but with the added benefit of profiles so you can see who you're dealing with.


Angela Lang / CNET

Just because there's a pandemic doesn't mean you don't want to try to make a deal. Normally, I would recommend steep discounts on items listed through Amazon Warehouse Deals but you should also consider second hand marketplaces.

Arranging a personal transaction through Craigslist or Facebook Marketplace while practicing social distance can be challenging, but if you meet in a public location you can transfer payment to the seller using PayPal, Venmo or Apple Pay and they can leave the item on a bench, table or sidewalk for you.

Some things you should never make yourself, such as hand sanitizer. [19659003] Angela Lang / CNET

eBay : Shipping varies by seller.

Mercari : Similar to eBay.

Bonanza : similar to eBay.

Ebid : auction market only.

Facebook Marketplace : local pick-up.

Craigslist : local pick-up.

While it may be tempting to follow the DIY route if you cannot find the items you need in stock at local stores or online, your homemade replacements may not be the same quality as commercial products. Handmade face masks may not protect against the new coronavirus and homemade hand sanitizers may ultimately not be effective against germs . What you can and cannot make, however, are these 11 tasty dinners with staples in the pantry .
