What household or grocery items do you wish you had shipped to post?

I don't ship groceries. Bring some tortilla chips! - Mar 23, 2017
More colby jack cheese. Motor oil. Spare car parts. - Apr 23, 2016
Just liquids, especially cleaning products and personal care products. - Mar 28, 2015
Anything liquid. Pouch and Amazon work for everything else. Also whenever we would travel, we would fill our bags with meat that we would freeze and then just put in our checked luggage. Any of the goods in the local stores are very expensive (US$70 for a pair of shoes made in China; US$200 for a dress that sells at Target for US$30.) - Aug 31, 2014
American comfort foods. Toiletries and cosmetic products. Beach gear-- towels, chairs, beach umbrellas, a cooler, a tent, boogie boards or surf boards. Plenty of books and DVDs. - Jul 11, 2013
More canned meat. - Apr 24, 2013
More cleaning supplies and anything you want to eat or use over the course of your assignment. Don't plan to buy ANYTHING in Angola. - Aug 3, 2011
Lots of sunscreen (1 bottle=US$30) and bathing suits for the kids. - Apr 15, 2009
