    What would we be taking on post covid ?

    I have been lucky enough to work from home so will be asking if I can continue with WFH, enjoying the family time together and have re-connected with a lot of people after a long time

    Continuing to learn as always

    Maintaining an inventory of 12 months worth of dunny paper and 18 months of baked beans.

    Isn't that the wrong way around?

    With a 12 month supply of baked beans, you're going to need at least an 18 month supply of dunny paper.

    It's ok - mostly for the bio-gas supply.

    I believe social distancing is in order. In fact I'd make it an exclusion zone to be on the safe side.

    reduced expenditure.

    We've never really gone hard on frugal living before, and during iso it has happened organically simply by not eating out or paying for entertainment.

    Cheers,

    I will ascertain where the products I purchase are manufactured. No guessing where I won't be purchasing products from!

    Post Covid is years away but post quarantine, first recover health and fitness (kids also).

    Longer term - do plans sooner rather than later, never know when this starts again.
    Or
