I read an article in the April 24th issue of the Wall Street Journal that examined the way that the pandemic has changed not just the experience of grocery shopping but what we buy. It reminded me of a joke I heard recently: I have discovered a new restaurant—it’s called the kitchen. But I don’t think it’s going to be in business for long.
This has been my experience living in downtown Portland, Oregon. I have taken up cooking at home again and I’m enjoying it.
The article says that consumers are cooking and cleaning more while spending less time and money on grooming and makeup products. For the time being, this virus has changed our personal lives.
