Note: you can only claim when the expense is directly related to work (earning your income) and you spent the money yourself with a record to prove.

However, there are personal expense like coffee, tea and toilet paper are not claimable as well as setting your children up with online learning course, teaching them at home, buy equipment like iPad, desk. As those expenses that are indirect related to earning income.
