I wonder if everyone's else's August list has changed due to COVID. For example, instead of shopping for school supplies, I'm shopping for extra masks for whenever the kids go back to school in person. I usually do batch baking in advance because I'm busy on school nights with sports and other activities. Those things are on hold for the foreseeable future, plus my husband is working from home and helps with the cooking now so batch baking seems unnecessary. I'm instead restocking a few things I stockpiled at the start of COVID because there have been some rumblings of possible fall and winter shortages.

I'm prepping in readiness for winter in case shortages here in the UK. We have the triple threat of covid resurgence, recession and brexit to contend with.

I’m going to likely work remotely this year and my desk space is small. Without enough room for a bigger desk, I am adding a three shelf rolling cart to the desk area, and replacing the lamp with a smaller desk lamp thus increasing my work surface area. I hope that will be enough! I also ordered supplies to make a fall wreath for the front door from a craft store rather than shop in the store for them. I’m making my own potpourri and herb vinegar to give for gifts this winter. Nice reminder of summer and easy to ship, no extra shopping required.
