So buy lots of paint (mound resistant).....
You can't take paint in your container.

I wonder if you can paint it on lining paper before you come over and then just paste the paper directly on to your walls.

Vitamins, books, sheets and duvet covers (why are they so expensive here??? I find it odd that Sheridan is cheaper in the UK than it is here??), make-up (if you use it YSL touche eclat in particular, is $80 in Myer!!).

Vacuum cleaners were also expensive if I recall along with camera's. Since the exchange rate though doing funny things I could be wrong.
