Small but important items like tea bags, instant coffee powder, milk powder or condensed milk, sugar biscuits and of course most important water should not be forgotten.

Crockery and cutlery should not be very expensive one, so that even if it is lost or damaged it won’t be missed. Crockery items like plates, glass, cups, cooking utensils and more should be packed. Cutlery spoons and knife, forks also have to be kept. Other items to be packed can be barbeque tongs, can opener and vegetable peeler.
