What I packed for Self Isolation

Updated with things I wish I had packed and things I didn’t need.


All but one of the shirts I am bringing is black. I don’t have to worry about matching clothes indoors but it would be easier if everything “goes.” Do I need shoes? Guess just trainers for walks and the garden.

  • Jeans
  • 2 leggings
  • Shorts – for warmer weather
  • 5 tshirts
  • Jumper
  • Pyjamas
  • Undergarments
    • Honestly I only really wear three bras
  • Socks
  • Trainers
  • Dressing gown


  • Toothbrush & toothpaste
  • Soap & shampoo
  • Hair dye & gloves
  • Make up
  • Nail file
  • Menstrual supplies


Or should I call these tools?

  • Laptop
  • Phone
  • A Nintendo
    • Can’t find my Minecraft cartridge!
    • Animal Crossing <3


I picked three big difficult books and have audio books for ‘easy’ relaxing books.


I write about scrapbooking without big fancy supplies so should be able to hold myself to it.

  • Summer 2019 onwards book
    • Scraps I need to put in it
  • Animal Crossing / Nature book
    • Animal Crossing Stickers
  • Stationary
    • Pens
    • Pencils
    • Glue
    • Photo squares
    • Scissors
    • Tape
    • Mini paper cutter
  • Extras
    • Stickers
    • Coloured paper

What should I have packed for isolation?

It’s been four weeks since I left home. I did ok. I’ve not read any of my books and I had to get my family to drop off a few more clothes for warmer weather. And a nice shirt for a video interview.

  • Thin hoody – too many tshirts
  • A second pair of shorts
  • Photos for my new room
  • Coloured tape for scrapbooking
  • Hair dye application brush
