I'm not exactly sure where the term "budol" came from. As far as I remember it was a term used for a crime, mainly scamming. The first time I heard this term was in the 80s when the budol budol criminals were striking. When online purchasing became a norm during the pandemic, it became a term used for impulse buying. It progressed more because of the double digit date promos made by Lazada and Shopee.
Since we're taking a lot of precaution by not going out, the things I need to purchase have been done online. It's not only SM that's "got it all for you", but you can practically buy anything online, even a house! To be honest, I was really wary about buying stuff online. I was forced into it when we had to purchase groceries during the circuit breaker in SG.
Anyway, I've babbled long enough. Here are some of the budols from the past few weeks:
|Walis tingting with bamboo holder|
|Magic hose and a hose organizer|
|Fabric to make a window curtain|
|Mail box, my neighbor said they'll stick it to the gate anyway.|
|Cordless vacuum, best buy ever.|
|Proper doorknobs, really hate those that nip you.|
|Birthday decor for Mom's birthday.|
|The air fryer (Sweetie's budol)|
|A nice faucet for the washing machine|
|Air freshener auto spray|
|The cheese door stopper which was an indulgence|
Sweetie was so surprised I only bought fabric to make a curtain. Told him I have a lot of fabric. Just need to unbox them. It's surprisingly hard to buy some home items like tabo and dustpan. I don't know why the shipping fees for basic home items are so expensive! I'm still hunting for a shop that doesn't charge so much to ship those. Or maybe it might be better for me to order through SM when I do my groceries.
I'm still learning a lot about buying home & living items online. Any tips/recos will be welcome.
