Eliza is setting up her new house in Sydney. She was in a hurry to get it done as quickly as possible, until a friend of hers introduced her to the phrase “buy once, buy well.” Eliza’s been trying to follow that mantra and take a bit more time to consider the various items she really needs in her home.
Geraldine's been thinking about trading in her car for a new-ish second hand model. That was until she went to the car yards to find that there’s very little stock available. Eliza thinks her mum deserves to buy a new car!
Also this week, the politics of Covid-19.
And the various podcasts and articles Eliza's been reading about the US election.
