    behavior modifications post-covid

    How will your behavior change in the post-covid world, near term and long term? I'm speaking about skiing stuff, but also everyday life.

    Everyday stuff: I have discovered free grocery store curbside pick-up. There is a supermarket near me that will do your shopping for you for free. Just select your groceries and pay online, then show up at grocery parking lot at appointed time and they come out with a cart and load it in your car. This service saves you an hour wandering around the store looking for everything. And no charge, whereas delivery to your house usually includes a fee. I guess the question is will they still keep doing this after the covid threat is over? Anyway, nice while it lasts.

    skiing: I'll keep packing my own PBJ sandwiches for lunch. But near term, as in next season, there could be fewer apreski beer parties with friends.

    I've had a near death experience from Viral meningitis in 2006 ,since then I've been a bit of a mild germaphobe. Public bathroom door handles were a bit of a sticking point especially with no towels and only a hand dryer . Winters are Ok I can slip a sleeve down and grab the handle . I've seen a few foot type appliances that you can pull the door open with the top of your foot ...Great idea!. I think I'm going to carry a rag or paper towel with me going into public bathrooms . If there isn't a can, I'll drop it on the floor.

    I keep my masks on my dashboard of my vehicle so the get full sun . I do use gloves half the time and have re used them after hand sanitizing .

    My wife keeps orders going every couple weeks with different markets so she can get items that one store may not have.

    If you can find a way to invent a mask that you can drink beer through somehow you'll be on Shark Tank with 5 offers!!
    " We're all in this together" ....Some more together than others .

    Iíve mentioned here recently that I quit drinking for a month, which I havenít done since boot camp over 20 years ago. Lost 10 pounds or so, which I needed to do. Since starting up again, Iím drinking less generally and exercising more regularly. Hopefully that continues.

    Investments aside, our cash flow was unaffected, which was plain dumb luck. We normally spend an above average amount on dining out so that $ has been going toward some new clothes, furniture, electronics. I think Iíll be going out less even when all restrictions are lifted.

    We are in the same boat! We used to do fine dining quite often and that has not happened. We also traveled a lot and between the two we have spent less. But that has translated in to new purchases and we are still ahead!
