A shopper has defended her giant stockpiled grocery haul using Coles and Woolworths buys, saying you always need to ‘be prepared’.
The Western Australian woman, called Losalio Leota, shared a video of her humongous supermarket shop stored in her spare room at home, comprising a range of food items, toiletries and medical supplies.
‘Turning our spare room into a store room,’ Losalio posted alongside the clip, adding the hashtags ‘re-arranging’, ‘be prepared’, ‘need another shelf’ and ‘OCD’.
‘Don’t come at me,’ she added in the caption.

The stockpiled haul included the likes of body wash, laundry powder, endless rolls of toilet paper, dish soap, toothpaste and disinfectant wipes.
But it wasn’t just cleaning products Losalio had stocked up on for the future.
The Western Australian woman also had another Kmart shelving unit packed full of tinned fruit and veg, dried pasta, soups, jams, noodles and baked beans.
Losalio had a third shelving unit, this time full of large storage containers filled with flour, oats and sugar, as well as medical products like Band-Aids, Dettol and Vicks VapoRub.
Finally, she also had countless boxes piled up inside the room, and she said she needs to make space for her cleaning products.
While some were impressed with her organisation, it wasn’t long before commenters accused Losalio of being ‘one of those panic buyers’ (some of her supplies pictured)
While some were impressed with her organisation, it wasn’t long before countless commenters accused Losalio of being ‘one of those panic buyers’.
‘Be prepared for what? The supermarkets don’t close, even in lockdown,’ one commenter wrote.
Another added: ‘Be prepared? I’m not being mean, just genuinely asking’.
Losalio defended herself underneath the comments, writing that she lives in a small rural town, Port Hedland, and this shopping was for her own ‘personal preparations’.
‘Growing up, my parents did it, so I just carried it on in my own way,’ she said.
She added that she doesn’t panic buy, but just buys two of something every time she sees an item on special.
‘I’ve just escalated from a small pantry room to a spare room turned into my own personal store room,’ she said.
Some were impressed with the haul, describing it as ‘goals’ and ‘inspiring’.
‘Very clean and organised, good on you sister, each family’s wants are different and that’s okay,’ one commenter posted.
Another added: ‘It’s always good to have a backup supply of food, especially in these times’.
