Welcome to Ask the JamFam, where we ask expert culture writers, seasoned couch-sitters, and members of the JamFam the most pressing chilling-adjacent questions on our mind.
During quarantine, we're all picking up new stuff for our homebound reality. But what purchases have added the most value to our lives? Our panel of writers sounds off:
Vikram Murthi: A snug, comfortable mask
Brianna Holt: Eye bag strips
Alphonse Pierre: An electric shaver
Larry Fitzmaurice: Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Dayna Evans: I've bought so many items of clothing since we've been in quarantine, including a pair of fancy French wooden clogs. All of this would rule if I had literally anywhere to wear them. Instead, I go check on them in my closet once a week. "You guys doing okay in there?"
Winston Cook-Wilson: Chino shorts
Corban Goble: A karaoke machine
Joanna Rothkopf: My fanny pack
Otis Blum: Trader Joe's Chicken Soup Dumplings
Hunter Harris: Not technically a purchase, but I moved into an apartment with a private patio and a roof deck. When eye SAY it changed my life ...
Paul Hinkes: An Ice Cream machine!!!
Morgan Baila: A standing desk and a Theragun. I have back problems and these two items help me stay comfortable while I'm working from an apartment in less-than-ideal sitting/standing situations.
