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

We had a consumables shipment and used it to stock up on favorite soups, contact lens solutions, bargain sizes of shampoos, conditioners, deodorants, body wash, comfort foods, Dr. Pepper (seriously!), dishwasher tablets (very difficult to find here), and certain cleaning supplies that we like to have. Pet owners also have a hard time finding quality dog and cat foods and kitty litter. - Sep 26, 2017
We used our consumables allowance well. Things like hand sanitizer, a good vacuum, good broom and mop. - May 30, 2017
I actually planned ahead, but here were things I'm glad I did because of higher prices here: granola, nuts (besides peanuts), specialty ingredients, and organic cleaning & laundry products. As noted, you can find just about everything here (except a lot of variety in cosmetics, household goods & cleaning products), but it all comes at a higher price. - Sep 30, 2016
Mexican food products? - Nov 21, 2013
Full use of any consumables shipment is recommended. More bug spray, bathing suits, toys and children's books. All are hard to come by, of poor quality and expensive here. - Apr 25, 2013
