I have a list going already for our trip in mid-July. We're not going to pack some stuff that we would ordinarily pack to keep the weight down in our luggage and just buy the stuff when we get there. We're going to be on the cruise, then in Vancouver for a week, so it will be nice to be able to use what we're used to. Here's our current list:

shampoo (for those that don't want to use the h2o, or who we prefer not to, like DS12 who needs 'man' shampoo now ).
conditioner (as above)
liquid hand soap (I don't like bars)
body wash (I need unscented)
body wash poofs
kleenex (bad allergies -- hotel kleenex is like sand paper)
air Freshener
lysol wipes
cottonel wipes
wrinkle release
beef jerky
luna bars

I am gluten intolerant and my 16yo niece has von Willebrand. Finding something that I CAN eat and something she WILL eat 'right now' is usually challenging when away from home. Its best to just bring some stuff and if we don't use it, we don't use it.

We're renting a car for the day on Sunday and going to Wal-Mart, Target, and the liquor store that is really close to Target that is open on Sundays.

If we weren't going to be gone for >2 weeks, we'd probably either pack little versions of these or do without (like the lysol and air freshener).

Always on our list is Downey Wrinkle Release, small can of air freshener/neutralizer for the bathroom, and foaming pump hand soap for the bathroom. I hate picking up a bar of soap to wash my hands.

We took granola bars, cracker packs (like peanut butter sandwich crackers) and fruit chews- mostly for the kids but we ended up snacking on them also, especially when we went on excursions. Nice to have snacks in your bag. And pop-tarts- for the same reason. We also had reusable water bottles (like ones you would take to an exercise class) that were good to fill with ice and a drink from the drink station, instead of the little paper cups provided.

I like some of the other ideas, our only cruise was last summer out of NYC, we drove into the city, so didn't have to worry about a flight before boarding. I've got a running list for next years cruise, since we will be out of PC.

We got those REAL LIMES to add to our Tequila and something else (honey got it) to make margaritas in our cabin with. You can't bring fruit on, so this solved that problem. I had plenty left over too and continued to use them with ridiculous sentimentality after the trip. ("Aww you were on the Dream with me" squirt squirt)

In addition to beer & liquor, I am planning to pick up a good supply of 5-Hour Energy. I believe my wife is planning to buy beach toys as well.

Moral of the story... When replacing forgotten toiletries, don't try to save a few cents on the razor, because those Disney princess bandaids that look so cute on your 6-yr-old daughter don't look at cute dotting the legs of a 38-yr-old woman!
