Lockdown Budols That People Are Still Buying Online Today

The lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic seemed like a lifetime ago. Remember that time when we thought life would never be the same again? But setting the dark side aside, it left us with some new habits that we didn’t know we’d pick up for the rest of our lives. Even though the world has now opened up its doors, it seems like the lockdown has awakened our introverted selves and some of us would really rather shop online, still. I did some interviewing on this, and apparently, online shopping in the Philippines is an innovation we didn’t know we needed even if we can now get up and go out. What are people still buying online, you ask? I listed a few!

One lockdown budol that proved to be more than just a trend is toilet bowl cleaners, specifically these toilet bowl gel cleaner flower stamps! I remember netizens calling them “very Jolens,” lol.

Home Decor

Spending more time at home made us stare at empty spaces, at some point, which is why many people were urged to make home improvements during the lockdown. By now, everyone’s probably done with the bigger projects, but there are little things that we still need to replenish, like scented candles. Scented candles not only elevate a simple space and give it a classy touch, but they also welcome us to the wonderful world of aromatherapy. Shop scented candles here!

Fitness Equipment

Among the lessons learned from surviving the pandemic is to keep a healthy lifestyle–and that we can do so without leaving the comfort of our own homes and even with tiny spaces. Yoga mats became our best friends for they gave us the support we needed in whatever workout we might have ventured into. While some people might not be able to start their fitness journey during the lockdown due to circumstances, it’s reassuring to know that reliable yoga mats continue to be accessible via online shopping whenever they’re ready.

Walking Pad

Unfortunately, not everyone has the luxury to roam around their neighborhood for a quick jog. This, however, should not get in the way of those who want to incorporate exercise into their daily routine! Especially now that the lockdown paved the way for more remote or hybrid job opportunities out there, so more people have opted to retain the work-from-home lifestyle. Without the daily commute, a personal walking pad comes in handy to help us stay on the move. Shop foldable walking pads here!
