I meant what you will be naming each of them since they will run into thousands if not lakhs.

As others have opined, lockdown acted as medium for separating the needs and wants for many of us.

I believe this period this should promote DIY culture in absence of electricians, plumbers etc. for small repair jobs.

First purchase for me post lockdown would be a hair clipper to avoid monthly visits to salons. It would be minimum 4-5 months before things start getting normal.

P.s. Slightly OT, tried searching this forum for this advise on hair clippers but could not find any post; it is better to get a hair clipper instead of using beard trimmers for cutting hair. Trimmers turned out to be a mess to clean after wards. Planning to get el cheapo hair trimmer online.

They outsource delivery to courier services and I have received 2-3 couriers in past 4 days.

Let the lockdown end, I have to decide finally whether to keep my new generation Amaze or sell it. It has been a headache experience for me till date. If the issues are resolved fine. Else, I am thinking of buying a new car soon.
May be Aura or i20 or Glanza or Dzire.

Can you elaborate the issues with Amaze? Also, is it petrol or diesel?

Well a dishwasher for me. Lockdown will end for sure but work from home is here to stay. Companies have tested blood now and so did my wifey.
God bless my poor soul.

Edit: Planning in advance, will also like to buy robotic mopper.

I actually had to venture out because our home Mixie had conked off. The reliance store was open. We were in and out with a new mixie in 10 mins. They were following social distancing. They were screening for temperature, lots of alcohol based sanitisers. The Q at billing was paced out as well. I saw them doing brisk business of Routers and dongles and Aircons.

Long story short, my first purchase is done. 😀

I have posted it in Amaze thread: https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/offic...review-19.html (Honda Amaze : Official Review)

There is a problem with suspension noise on bad roads which irritates me.
Also there is a huge cost cutting I will post the pictures soon.
Hyundai has best fit and finish i think and no problems like noise issues, etc.

Voted for nothing at all. Looking at the above list I realised I am pretty much sorted and have everything I need. While there are no limits for the wants, for the first time, I want to save some considerable moolah for myself during this lockdown period. With the way things are going, we never know what happens next and it is always good to have some savings lying around to keep you covered when the time comes.

If at all I spend on something after this ,it will be on dining out (foodie here ) and lots of fuel, both of which, like most of us here, I can't really live without

In addition to what I said previously, a RO water filter.

Need a poll on RO water filters. Which are the real fit and forget ones.
Because if such a thing is available, will buy it, junking our present one. Our current one is our third brand.

I'm getting the livpure installed. It's a subscription apparently, and way cheaper than the 20 L bottles we've been using.

I had ordered a dining table from Amazon before the lockdown but still not delivered, as expected. So that is the only thing I sm waiting for.

My kids will have online classes from June, so laptops for them will be the purchase that I will do.
