Minsk - Post Report Question and Answers

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

Paper towel, maple syrup, honey, and nuts. - Oct 2021

Household items: Clorox wipes, Lysol spray or other favorite cleaners. Paper towels and toilet paper, as the quality is not as good here (not a must, but if you have room/weight you may want to put some in your shipment). Grocery items: Mexican food items, such as tortilla chips and salsa, refried beans, etc. (tortillas are available here); chocolate chips; brown sugar; powdered sugar; favorite cereals; canned pumpkin; extracts (vanilla, peppermint, etc.). - Apr 2019

We shipped everything we wanted, or have ordered it since arriving. I would suggest good winter coats, good winter boots, and US foodstuffs you can't easily find in Europe or that tend to be expensive here (peanut butter, shortening, Mexican-style foods, etc). - Oct 2011
