In hindsight, in preparation for lockdown , I wish I had bought more elastic ( for making face coverings ) and more flour for baking.
What might you have bought more of had you known how lockdown would pan out ?

baking soda, not for cooking but for deoderising my cats litter tray, I managed to order some online yesterday but was only allowed 4, I normallly buy 6.
I think, if you have enough inner resources, then you can live in isolation for long periods of time and not feel diminished by it.

Not much really. Yes elastic but I've been able to get plenty on line. Paracetamol is still in short supply for relief of knee pain. I organised a delivery of organic vegetables every Thursday just before lockdown and that has really helped to make the most of the food I have in my freezer. I've got no Magnums at the moment lol ... just as well hahaha!

Can’t think of anything I particularly need and haven’t got - but before lockdown, I did buy a multi pack of magnums, T65KBK - they are still in the freezer, unopened - I’m saving those in case of need for Lockdown2 this Summer!

It has to be very hot weather before I fancy ice cream - I have scoffed all the crisps, though - they are my weakness so I am glad I didn’t buy more!

Apart from flour, that has been panic bought by the selfish minority, nothing springs to mind that I cannot get at my local Sainsbury's.

Been this morning with a list of about twenty five items and got everything on it.
A perfect martini should be made by filling a glass with gin, then waving it in the general direction of Italy.
