Copenhagen - Post Report Question and Answers

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

No need to ship anything. - Feb 2022

If you have a specific brand or item that you can't live without then ship it. Otherwise, I was able to find everything I needed with the caveat that you sometimes had to ask around to find it. - Jun 2021

Most can be found on the local market, or you can order from Walmart. If you like peanut butter, order it from Walmart! You will only find a very small jar of Skippy on the local market, and you will pay almost $10 for it. If you have a favorite toilet paper, you may want to order it as well. The local paper is very thin and like sandpaper. - Jul 2016

With amazon/Walmart and a DPO, almost everything is possible. - Feb 2014

Just specialty items/brands that I like to use. - Aug 2011

We shipped extra toiletries, some packaged food, baby items and our mattress. We were glad we shipped all these items and would do so again. - Jul 2011
