What to bring (in the car) for a three month stay - apart from Marmite

We leave mid December for our first three month stay and I am planning to bring quite a lot of kitchen things, my laptop, toiletries and an assortment of clothes.  We have rented an apartment overlooking the golf course and will not need towels or bedding.  Any advice will be greatly appreciated!

Chapatis! 

Crunchy peanut butter from Aldi. (Smooth is readily available here). 

Curry paste jars (in Carrefour and Spar but pricey).

Oatcakes!

Antihistamine/hay fever tablets (one of the few things that are pricier here).

Aldi (UK) do a box of 160 tea bags - although Tetley tea-bags (40s) are stocked here by Mercadona.

Marmite available at Iceland Waitrose overseas supermarket in Vera near the fountain roundabout. In fact lots of your favourite brands are stocked there!

Have a great trip down and enjoy the area with it’s special climate.

Many thanks - I did not get any emails so was surprised to find your very helpful suggestions.  Taking it all on board - have discovered Ian has been stockpiling Cheerios (Honey) and Gold Blend - not my choice.   I am pretty sure I will find Lavassa coffee out there so was only taking one.  I had not thought about hay fever tablets - pretty sure I react to  tree pollen - will take a few packs just in case.

Just getting into this site - it seems quite new - a great idea - thank you!  Really looking forward to some warmer weather - have been spending endless  hours painting new fence in temperatures between 6 -9  - that is until rain stops play :)

I suggest warm slippers  and cosy PJs for lounging in at night. It does get quite cold in the evening even with heating on.

Enjoy your trip
