Coronavirus. My Top 5 things to Stockpile

With all the media coverage about Coronavirus and stories on the internet about people stockpiling toilet roll and hand sanitizer I though I would share my thoughts as to what I feel we should be prioritising and keeping quantities of at home in the event that we should have to self quarantine for 14 days. I have put a great deal of thought and consideration into this list and think you will find it useful but that does not mean I am encouraging anyone to start panic buying these items. We all need to remain calm. This list is in no way meant to replace advice from the Government or the World Health Organisation. The list is in no particular order.

Be like Bob


You are going to need all the coffee if you are going to be quarantined with a houseful of kids and your husband. Think of all the extra meals your going to have to make and clear away. Better add 2 spoons per mug mamma’s!

All the Coffee


Which leads to my next item on the Coronavirus stockpile essentials list. It’s going to be pretty much like school holidays except you can’t leave the house to escape to the park for a few hours. When the cabin fever starts kicking in throw the kids a few snacks and head off to the kitchen cupboard for the next item.

Snack time


Self explanatory really. Will help with the cabin fever and if you run out of food it will help wash those snacks down.

Dry shampoo

With all the snack making and coffee/gin drinking you will be doing there’s going to be no time for frivolous things like washing your hair. Just because you’re on lockdown doesn’t mean you should let that mum bun get all greasy! You don’t want to run out or you may have to actually wash your hair (talc is an emergency option)


Forget about pasta and rice. Chocolate has everything you need to survive the coronavirus crisis. It’s got milk and sugar and some other stuff which I’m sure is just as good for you as pasta and tinned tomatoes. Plus if you have the misfortune of being in germ jail on shark week the other house members will need to throw chocolate at you from a distance until normal services resume

So there you have it guys. My top 5 coronavirus quarantine essentials. Please note at no point did I worry about fecking bog roll or hand sanitizer. Wash your hands with soap and water you dirty buggers!

Let me know if there is anything else you would add to the list.

Love and peace xxx
