With the lockdown restrictions implemented in New Zealand, it’s quite easy to give in and go panic buying for groceries (remember the toilet paper frenzy?) I must admit, once the cases started going up, I was tempted to rush to the supermarket and stock up. Thankfully, we realised that most people would go to the shops RIGHT NOW (we were right) and we’d rather wait out the crowd since we still have stocks at home anyway.
Nowadays, our pantry and freezer is much fuller than it normally is, but I think it’s still quite far from “hoarding”. We’re basically making up for the usual takeaways we can no longer have haha! We also still have our shopping list when we go to the supermarket so we don’t just get everything we see. We haven’t really bought any other miscellaneous items as well, apart from an office desk that we got just in time before the lockdown. We really needed it though, since both the Mister and I are working from home. We’re lucky that our companies allowed us to borrow our monitors and take them home, so we didn’t have to buy new ones.
So yes, I could say that we’re still doing well minimalism-wise. No unnecessary purchases so far 👍 Oh, and here’s a snap of the few things that we cooked up while on lockdown (from the top-left, clockwise: banana choco chip ice cream, pasta from scratch, oatmeal cookies, nasi goreng, and nut butter dark chocolate cookies).
How about you, what have you been up to during lockdown? Keep safe, everyone!
