Coronavirus Preparation: Barter and trade

*** This post will be updated frequently as we learn of businesses who have restocked the essentials. ***

In the wake of the coronavirus social distancing, people everywhere are stocking up with the supplies they need to survive for the next month or longer. However, there are also several families out there in need of the essentials to get them through the next days or week. Here at Local Savvy AZ, we want to do something to help. Introducing the Coronavirus Prep Barter and Trade. This is a way for you to get something you need and help someone at the same time!

Here’s how it works:

  1. Comment below listing something you have and something you need. You can also comment on our social media handles on Instagram and Facebook.
  2. Next, look at the list and comment as you see posts with items you have that someone needs, and others will do the same for your post. When you find a connection, comment on the post and connect directly with that person to facilitate the exchange.

Play nice. Be kind. First come, first serve. Local Savvy AZ is not responsible for property.

It’s very hard to watch everyone struggling to find their everyday essentials and we want to do something to help. People are in need of baby formula, eggs, diapers, milk, canned food, water, toilet paper, paper towels, etc. so let’s all get together and help each other out!

Hi Bill, I can help you with some flushable wipes and some sanitizer wipes. I am also at high risk and am not left my house in over a week. I may need Lindsey to intervene with the pick up and delivery of these items. Please let me know if I can help you with these or if you have already received the items.

Safeway at 83rd Ave and Camelback has plenty of diapers and formula

Moto Lee
Member

Not sure if there’s still a diaper shortage. I have little over half a box of pampers size 5 ( not 100% certain since pampers only have sizes on the box ) and half a box or Huggies size 6.

Those were purchased back in 2017/2018 and My youngest outgrew them. I forgot about them until now.

I’m in Scottsdale area and willing to meet at public places.

Moto Lee

Forgot to mention. I’m not looking for trade or money. This is free to those in need.

Hello,
I am in Gilbert. Have diapers in a few different sizes if anyone is willing to meet me out here at the Sams Club. I need nothing in return. Full disclosure they are from my baby shower September 2018 but are unopened, were kept inside, and my daughter just can’t use them because she is allergic to most brands. Have sizes 2,3,4 and 5. Different brands and box sizes.

If you need to clean you can use the following items to make a natural cleaner. Mix together the water and vinegar in a spray bottle, using a funnel as needed. Vinegar is naturally antibacterial and antifungal and will naturally clean your home. To clean mirrors and glass you may use rubbing alcohol 1/4 cup to 1/2 part water – put in spray bottle and wipe down using neeas paper.

Jaime Sanders

Any one know of which stores have toilet paper available in the Tempe area?

Eva Quintero

Most stores will stock Tuesday night for Wednesday’s sales. However, you may need to get there early.

If anyone needs baby formula, I was told that if you call the number on the back of can, they will send you a case of formula during this time. Not sure of what brand, but worth a try, and only if needed.
Hope this helps.
