As we seem to be moving steadily towards a hard Brexit I’m thinking about what household items I should start to stockpile ahead of March 29th 2019. I think we should be fine here for most food stuffs, you might not get your first choice brand but maybe we should be buying Irish or European products as much as possible in the run-up to the Big Day. One of my concerns would be for cleaning products, toiletries etc., many of which come from the UK. It might be helpful if retail outlets had “UK” and “non-UK” items separately displayed.
Spare parts for utility machines could be a problem but it’s hard to predict what will breakdown next! Car parts for some models might also be an issue.
I’m assuming that big stuff like the electricity interconnector and the gas pipelines will continue to operate. Although I note that the government is already moving our strategic oil reserves from Wales to Continental Europe.
Have I left anything out?

Doesn't a big stash of toilet paper go without saying if your prepping?
No. Leaves, or rags that can be reused after washing . There was clean life before tissue... same as with sanitary protection. Rags, washed. used each month
This applies to normal life, we are going to continue having what used to be unusual weather e.g. snow in March like today and severe storms so having some stocks is a good idea - but use and replenish - don't store rotting food.

Anyone know where on internet we can get sensible advice about what we will face in six months' time?
Will there be massive queues at the ports resulting in food and general supply problems? Home heating oil? Situation with North/South rail travel?
