My roommates and I bought a SAUNA, that is certainly my weirdest quarantine purchase. How about you?

Most random - got a beer tap for my home office that you can re-stock with pony kegs.Β 

Weirdest - I ordered a custom branded beer bong one day when I was drunk.

I am starting to notice a theme here.

Yeast and then I proceeded to make a million bread products. Buns, bagels, desserts...no wonder I gained weight.

Bread-making was an early quarantine craze for sure. Had quite a few friends do the same thing.

It's theraputic in a way and takes a lot of time and isn't too expensive so why not eh. I still make bagels from time to time.

I bought 2 kittens. Then I gave them to my roommate when I moved out last month because it turned out he liked them more than I did and I didn't want cats at my nice new apartment. I was their owner for only 7 months. Trial and error, fuck cats.

At least you made sure they got a good home/owner that cared for them instead of just abandoning them.

I have a heart sometimes. Besides, the dumpster was full that day.

In my brief stint of Covid unemployment, I got really into fountain pens. While making 0 money, I spent way too much on a product that I really had no current use for, being unemployed.

Freaked out during the fitness equipment shortage and bought some cheap cheap cheap bands and they took like 3 months to come in and couldn’t be worse quality. I deserved it for overreacting.Β

I was in college at Oklahoma state still at the time, I went down to Waco, TX to visit my GF down there. Ended up getting stuck down there for two weeks. Long story short my best friend also lived down the street from her and was dating one of her roommates. So we bought a pool. Straight up an above ground pool. We set it up in my friends backyard and had one of those real good times. Honestly looking back it’s one of the best weeks of my life. Dollar general had beer discounts every day so the pool parties were fun.

A sauna??? I'm guessing you live in a house, not an apartment. I've lived in apartments for too long, this needs to change.


Also, my weirdest purchase during the quarantine was UV lightbulb simply because it was on sale, no other purpose. All of my other purchases have been reasonable, like stereo cabinet, mattresses, curtains, shelves I made, office chair, desk work matt, a little glass bong, and a bunch of art supplies. So yeah it's been pretty nice quarantine for me haha

Strangely enough PMAisTheOnlyWay, I live in an apartment LOL! It is one of those small 1 person saunas that we managed to fit on our outdoor patio.
