By me in Orlando all the water is already gone. When Costco got a shipment today it was gone before they even finished unloading. So what do you do if you can’t find water bottles? This is what we did when we couldn’t find anything for Matthew
*Get gallon Ziplock bags and fill those up about ¾ of the way. Get the ones that zip closed really tight. Then stack them up in a box. Weird squishy water bottles. Also good for making ice blocks for freezer that can be melted later if needed. For that only fill ½ way or the bag will explode.
*Fill every cup you have with water. Cover tops with saran wrap to keep little bits of dust and whatnot from getting in the water since it’ll be sitting before you use it. Don’t have many cups? Buy a thing of disposable ones from the store.
*Go to the dollar store and get buckets, Fill and cover those. We bought 3 1-gallon buckets and those are for the animals but they’d be fine for people too.
*For someone like me there are old gatorade bottles hiding around my house. Gather up water bottles, fill them.
*Rinse and reuse other containers. Your milk won’t last if the power goes out. Finish it up, rinse the container and fill it.
*Tupperware. Fill and close it. Can also be frozen to make ice blocks. The more ice in the freezer, the longer things will stay cold if you lose power.
No one is stocking up on ziplocs, cups, saran wrap, or buckets that I noticed. Plenty of all those still left on the shelves while the water section was empty.
