We buy crating material from local suppliers, not much at one time but every other week or so.
 This time last year, 3/4" CDX ply was about $25 a sheet, from Lowes. Today, $45 a sheet. Same with 2x stock.

Thin mints are not good if not frozen. They go to the freezer immediately. Want to see chaos? Be on an aircraft carrier and announce that there is a tri-wall(1 cubic yard cardboard box) of free GS cookies on the hangar bay.

I have a friend who is a small residential contractor. He and his brother have been planning to do a small subdivision. Just while they went through the zoning approval process (which took, IIRC, a bit less than six months, he said the costs of building materials has skyrocketed.

I know someone who wanted a new 2+ car garage last year. They are capable of doing their own framing and construction. They took their material list to menards a year ago and got prices - $13k for everything above the concrete slab.
They got the building permit, prepped the ground, poured the slab, and went back in June and the same material was $26k, exactly double.
Pandemic, fires in lumber land, Midwest derecho storms, all working against you.

It obviously took a lot of bread to get these working right.

That's the toaster my folks had when I was a kid.  I thought it was perfectly normal.

Is de-googling the same as rooting, or are they two different things?

De-Googling means your phone isn't being tracked or data-mined by Google. A lot of apps don't work without Google.

Rooting means having administrator privileges on the phone's operating system.
