Amazon, for shielders
I wanted to share with you a tip I learned through the last round of shielding.
Amazon.co.uk has been something of a life saver to me. As someone who deals with Autism and living alone for the first time I decided certain things I would bulk buy. These things are;
- Toilet Paper;
- Washing up liquid;
- Washing tablets for the washing machine;
I decided to do this because it works out cheaper and it can last you a long period of time. We then fell into the pandemic. I had to shield. Amazon has been a god send for me. Being able to bulk buy cheaper then going to the store has been a life saver. I know that if I am unable to goto the shop I will still have my essentials.
For anyone who has to shield for any lockdown, look at the Amazon for your country and see what deals you have available to you. It can be a life saver.
Before I leave I would also love to ask that those who shield remember, you are not the only one who is struggling. Make sure that you are courtious to those you speak to on the phone. They are quite happy to talk to you especially if you tell them your a shielder. If things go wrong the customer service people are not the people to blame. You maybe stressed but they are also maybe shielding and working from home.
Why not ask the person at the other end of the phone, "how are you holding up in this pandemic". People are shocked that you ask them, but they will be thankful.
