Approved Shopping List

During the first yearlong shopping ban, I was allowed to buy:

  • 1 hoodie
  • 1 pair of workout capris
  • 1 outfit for multiple weddings
  • 1 pair of boots
  • a new bed

During the second ban, I was allowed to buy:

  • 1 pair of shoes
  • 1 used paddleboard
  • 1 roof rack for said paddleboard
  • 1 piece of carry-on luggage
  • products my friends create and sell, as I want to support their work

I was also allowed to replace things. For example, when my only pair of jeans ripped in the inner though, I threw them out and replaced them with one new pair.
