Please, for crying out loud don't buy all the toilet paper

Stop buying all the toilet paper. Seriously, knock it off. It’s not necessary.
Across the state—in large and rural communities alike—grocery stores’ entire toilet paper aisles are empty. Not a single four-roll package remains for people who need it. So who has it? People who likely already had enough.
Contrary to popular belief, we do not have a toilet paper shortage. According to the Washington Department of Health, there’s nothing causing additional use of toilet paper and producers say there has been no cut in toilet paper production.
Consumer overstocking is to blame.
