What are your "take to the room" staples?

I have been trying to come up with a list of the must take items for a weeks stay at DVC. I am interested in having others add, so I can come up with the UBER list. We susally drive and buy fresh stuff at Publix on the way in ( I am not counting that stuff).The publix at Hilton Head has a great "timeshare" section in the front with small ketchups, mayo, mustard... Anyway:

salt n pepper grinders
mustard
mayo
coffee
coffee filters
cream
cereal
peanut butter
laundry detergent
sunscreen
rice
butter
shampoo
spaghetti noodles
olive oil

Instead of laundry detergent, I bring the Purex 3 in 1 sheets. They're very portable and you don't need seperate fabric softener sheets. I can't really take credit for this suggestion because someone recommended them for a DVC cruise I recently took, and now we are hooked.

We have 2 Owners Lockers that are filled to the brim with things we 'need', in addition we always stop at Publix for deli meats, cheese, bread, fresh fruit, lettuce, wine, etc. From home we bring fresh ground coffee, because it's what we like...we use it in our mini Keurig that's in our Owners Locker.

Not to hijack this thread, but the topics are related. Do you mind me asking what you store in your lockers, esp. since you have 2 of them. We are thinking about getting one, but not sure what other folks keep in theirs. Thanks!
