Since nobody’s hording from the health and beauty isle, I figure we’re probably three weeks away from knowing everyone’s true hair color. That said, I am frankly thinking that there is very little in the way of actual hoarding going on at all, even on toilet paper. Oh, I know… Certainly, there is some of […]
