What to Shop For Online During Self-Isolation


With the recent government restrictions, many of us are currently in self-isolation. This has completely turned our routines upside down. Adjusting to such a massive lifestyle change in the midst of extremely stressful circumstances is tricky enough to navigate as it is, let alone if you have children home from school. Fortunately, we live in the age of online shopping and home delivery. 

The trick to getting through this time and thriving is to recreate your routine at home. Here are a few things you might need to successfully get back into your routine and maintain your lifestyle in self-isolation.


Home Gym Equipment 

With all gyms and fitness studios currently closed and our government urging us to stay at home, it would be easy to put your fitness goals on the back burner. We think you should do just the opposite. Physical activity is essential to maintaining your health and boosting your immune system, which is now more important than ever. 

If you used to hit the gym every day, invest in Weights or Kettlebells. Do you miss your yoga or pilates class? Get a Yoga Mat and Resistance Bands for workouts at home. Many gyms and fitness studios are putting their classes and training tips online while they are closed, so there is no excuse to not prioritise your health.



Don't forget the kids needing their activity. How about this kids punching bag boxng set?



We all know that a healthy diet is essential for overall health and a thriving immune system. We also know that in self-isolation it’s all too easy to reach for UberEats and indulge in comfort food every night. Not only is this bad for your health, but it isn’t great for your wallet either. In these times, limited trips to the grocery store are preferable, and nutritious, healthy meals are a must. 

With extra time on your hands, this is the perfect opportunity to learn to cook and teach your kids about healthy meals. Now is the time to finally commit yourself to meal planning and prepping for your family. Our number one recommendation for meal prepping is to invest in a Slow Cooker. Check out our Kitchen Collection for everything you need to become an at-home Masterchef.



It goes without saying, especially right now, that a clean home is a healthy home. Staying on top of cleaning can be difficult with a full house at all times. This is made even harder by the current shortage of cleaning products available. The solution is to get something that is easy to use and reusable. Check out these Microfibre Cleaning Cloths that you can use on virtually any surface in your home.

Home Office

The work from home struggle is real. For those of us lucky enough to be working from home, productivity can be hard to find. One way to encourage productivity is to set up a dedicated home office or working space. All you need is a corner of your home that is strictly for your work. Get yourself a nice Desk, a comfortable Office Chair, and set up your dedicated workspace to inspire productivity.


Offline Entertainment

With all this time at home and not much to do, we’re all probably spending a little too much time online. Whether you’re spending your evenings binging Netflix, gaming online, or scrolling through endless news updates, all this screentime is likely detrimental, both for your health and family life. It’s time to put down the electronic devices and connect as a family. Check out our Outdoor Games Collection for games like Giant Jenga or a Basketball Set. They will not only get you and your family away from screens but also get you outside, spending valuable time together.



By keeping up with your health and fitness, dedicating areas of the house to work, and reducing your screen time as a family, self-isolation will be more manageable and less stressful. Here at Later Gator, we offer multiple methods of paying later, including Afterpay, Zip, Laybuy, Openpay, Latitudepay, PayItLater and Splitit. This means that you can get exactly what you need to make self-isolation bearable now and pay for it later.

Stay safe and healthy!
