What household or grocery items do you wish you had shipped to post?
Hair care. - Apr 2021
Cleaning product, dry food (beans, pasta, legumes). - Apr 2021
Alternative flours or special dietary items (paleo, sugar-free, gluten-free, natural, organic, etc.) are difficult to find. There are lots of soda choices, but with sugar only, no diet or "light" options, although there is a low-calorie beer available. There is a grand siesta for most of the grocery stores, from 1-4pm, with abbreviated Sunday schedules; factor that into your plans, or you may not get the eggs that you need for the week! (This is the voice of experience...) Also, avoid Caba Market: eggs are on the shelf so long that they are black inside, stale bread for sandwiches. - Jul 2020
Items that we shipped in our consumables included brand-specific hot sauce, Dr. Pepper, Gatorade, Cranberry Juice, Grapefruit Juice, hair products, and brand-specific potato ships. - Aug 2017
Any specialty food items. A KitchenAid or something similar. Lack of diversity in the market means we end up making a lot of things from scratch! Anything for holidays, especially Thanksgiving (canned pumpkin is a must!). - Sep 2014
Tennis balls, guitar stings. - Jun 2012
