Your pandemic purchases, rated... there are worms

It’s that time again, the one where we dive deep into the shocking depths of Twitter to find you raving or repenting about your latest buys.

Emojis repeated (potato, snail, worm and gnome)

Have things gotten worse since last time with, you know, the ducks? Let’s see. Here are your pandemic purchases, rated.


Tweet about potato bought in lockdown

Starting strong. Pretty inexpensive and with arguably huge effect. Extra flair in the face-confetti (in case the massive spud with 'MISS YOU' on wasn't enough). Dan also has half of his dinner sorted, and for free. He's a lucky man. Iconic work, Tiff. 8.5/10.


Tweet about snails

No better time to arrange some extra company, and snails are pretty low maintenance when it comes to money and time. Plus, the one on Courtney's thumb is showing the attachment levels we all dream of. SAVE THE SNAILS. 9/10.


Tweet about pogo stick

Make Riley our leader. Great form of exercise, just the right amount terrifying and only a 67% chance of breaking something. Great odds. 7/10.


Thank God. Just as you were all doing a little too well, Claire came through and saved things. Utterly terrifying. Would say send him back but we worry about the repercussions. Good luck sleeping Claire. 3/10.


If not done, like Courtney's Snail escapade, to save the worms from people's stomachs, then what for? Worms don't hug you back George. Pensive 4/10.


Don't think this needs explaining, does it. Here we have this week's 10/10.

If we've got you feeling inspired to spend, why not help someone out who is in serious need right now? That, is a proper pandemic purchase. Become an 11/10 pandemic spender.

What Tax Bracket Am I In?

Money is often so unnecessarily complicated. Case in point, tax brackets. No, we’re not talking about a basketball tournament here, we’re talking about how much tax you’re going to pay on your income (spoiler: probably a lot 🤡).
