As people around the world run to stock up on essentials such as cleaning supplies, non-perishable food, and toilet paper amid the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), Jax Taylor has a slightly different idea of what to consider a necessity.
On a more serious note, Jax went on to explain that the house he shares with wife Brittany Cartwright is now "basically a costco/compound," using the hashtag "better safe than sorry."
When a follower asked if he was "planning on not leaving your residence for weeks," Jax explained that he was simply getting prepared for almost any situation. "You never know, but we are ready for anything, unless I smoke to [sic] much weed, then I have enough food for like a week."
While people are struggling to find household basics, Jax shared how he found success in stocking up his home. "Go to remote areas and hit up the grocerie [sic] stores, that's what I did," he explained to a follower who revealed they were having trouble finding toilet paper. "Was a bit of a drive but I got everything I needed."
When a different Twitter user challenged his logic by saying that "people are going out and buying unnecessary amounts of items," Jax retorted: "We are buying things we use anyway, it doesn't go to waste."
"Most things we are buying don't have expire dates," he continued. "And btw these are the smart people, to each his own, don't worry about what others are doing, do you and just be happy and safe."
Jax isn't the only Bravolebrity to include an unlikely item on their shopping list of essentials amid the health crisis. Southern Charm matriarch Patricia Altschul made a trip to Costco earlier this month and left with a shopping cart full of multiple packs of Charmin toilet paper as well as three bottles of Veuve Clicquot. She captioned the post: "Getting prepared in case the corona virus hits."
