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

With the inclusion of the Navy Exchange, you can find just about anything you need here. - Oct 3, 2017
I am glad I did not have many consumable items shipped to post. There is not room in the house to store them. - Jan 15, 2017
Most items are available locally. We did bring a large amount of peanut butter with us, only because we like a certain brand. Greeks have excellent food, but they don't tend to like things "hot spicy" so if you like spicy foods, bring plenty of spice packets from home. - Dec 20, 2016
You can find most things locally for a price. The Pharmacies have terrific prices and no prescription is needed, but kid medicine is very different, so stock up on acetaminophen, ibuprofen and cold medicine; also Nyquil for adults. - Sep 7, 2013
Pretty much everything is available in Athens, but I would say electronics and car parts are very expensive. - Jul 14, 2012
None. - Jun 30, 2010
Bikes-I was told not to bring them, but there are plenty of trails for mountain biking. - Jan 6, 2009
Ink jet cartridges, cereals, soups, and more clothes. - Dec 27, 2008
Ingredients, larger children's toys like Little Tikes playhouse sorts of things, diapers. I did bring a lot of dry goods with me. - Jun 20, 2008
