US Shopping List- Kitchen & Misc

This post, and the last one, is for those of you who email me and ask me what to bring when you move to China. A reminder that some of these things are sold here, but are either too expensive or are just not good enough.

  • Running shoes/inserts
  • Dryer sheets
  • Zipfizz
  • Crystal Light
  • Slim Fast powder
  • Gel packs for running
  • Transportable dishes with carry handles and lids
  • Almond extract
  • Mint extract
  • Birthday cards (especially boys)
  • Scotch tape
  • Hair Straightener (I have tried 3 Chinese ones, all stink. Will use a large converter just for this!)
  • Modest swimsuits
  • Clothes including undies
  • Flax seed
** here are some items we stocked up on over Christmas. Since then, American Airlines has limited international travel to one free bag. So these items are no longer cost effective to bring with us.
  • Chocolate chips
  • Brownie mixes
  • Cake mixes
