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

We don't lack for anything here. Whatever we deem too expensive locally, we order through Amazon and Wal-Mart. I believe consumables are still offered. We utilized that once, but it wasn't really necessary. - Sep 2, 2016
Juice, maple syrup, EVOO, bubble solution for the kids. Fresh juice is good here but sours quickly. Boxed juice tastes like a box. You can get Ocean Spray here but it is expensive. - Jun 9, 2015
100% pure maple syrup. - Apr 6, 2015
More specialty baking supplies, gardening supplies, toys to give as gifts (toys are REALLY expensive here). A good gas BBQ would have been great-getting a regular BBQ here to heat up sufficiently takes a lot of work-things don't burn well with less oxygen in the atmosphere. - Jan 1, 2014
Dog food, toilet paper....I ordered food from Amazon often, which was wonderful. We didn't do a consumables shipment and were able to find most things. - Jul 22, 2013
Toilet Paper, paper towels, canned soups, cereals, peanut butter, dish soap, laundry soap....basically, any American item that you really like. You will not find it here -- or if you do, you will pay much more for it. - Jun 22, 2013
We went shopping for everything we wanted as part of our consumables allowance. Buy anything you need from paper products, medicines, food etc. - Jul 20, 2012
Detergent, canned items that you like, warm clothing, heaters for the house, transformers for electrical items. - Feb 9, 2012
Toilet paper, liquid detergent and fabric softeners, brown sugar, chocolate chips, spices and sauce mixes. - Aug 7, 2011
I was thinking of a Westin Heavenly Bed the bed GSO provide is rock solid hard and killing my back. - May 27, 2011
Detergent. Lots of it. Your favorite american snacks and if you have pets, pet food and medicines for fleas. - May 26, 2011
Food items that can't be found here, shoestrings (yes shoestrings), some school supplies, household items such as towels, bathroom rugs, shower curtains, etc. Those are sold here, but very expensive. No Wal-Marts here! - Mar 14, 2011
Nuts, cheddar cheese, TP, your favorite canned foods, and sports gear. - Aug 25, 2010
None, you can get everything. If you want -- Asian spices maybe.. - Jan 7, 2010
Cereal (primarily because of the cost), chocolate chips, crackers, generally taste-specific items. - Aug 21, 2009
