That from a clothing point of view, we were caught on the hop when our total lockdown happened. Foodwise, not so. I had a bad feeling from mid January. Already having two Brexit boxes, I slowly built them up further each week. I must admit though, I still got caught out regarding flour, yeast and bicarbonate of soda! Being busy doing that and sourcing things required for mask making, I completely forgot about clothes. Brexit boxes are still getting added to.
From a clothes point of view, we buy only what we need, rarely what we want and make do for a lot of the time. Our clothes go year to year only being replenished when required. We are not fashion conscious, comfort beats looks every time. Buying new underwear happens more often because items nowadays, seem to shrink at an alarming rate with frequent washing!
Not wanting to be caught on the hop again, autumn, winter and spring clothing has been looked at. Replacement items went onto a list. Yesterday and today we went shopping. Two items from Friday were returned for refund today.
New pyjamas for both of us, underwear for both of us (now put away until required). A couple of jumpers and lounge pants for me. I have never had any before but I know they will be comfortable and keep me warm in the months ahead. Coats, hats, gloves, shoes and boots all still fine from a few years ago.
Are you prepared just in case?
