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

Honestly you can get almost anything here, but it can get a little expensive. If you cook with SE Asian ingredients you can cut back on grocery bills. - May 2, 2017
I really did not miss much except specific microbrews and a few specialty items or perhaps some pet supplies. - Oct 24, 2016
More nuts, chocolate, and my favorite detergent/soaps. Anything imported is expensive and you don't know what the importers will want to buy. - May 18, 2015
Stock up on summer clothes, tank tops, sandals, flip flops. It's hot! Most Western style clothing is either too small (in the open markets) or too expensive (in the chic boutiques). But there are plenty of tailors who can make clothing to fit. - Feb 13, 2015
More consumables like shampoo for which I don't want to switch brands. - Aug 13, 2013
Laundry detergent, dishwasher detergent, baby food, diapers. - Aug 6, 2011
More consumables, a car, and my own furniture. - Oct 9, 2010
Bicycle and bicycle parts if you need them. - Feb 27, 2008
