I am in the process of deciding which of our household goods will stay and which of them will go to Japan. If they stay, it will be in storage. My large furniture and all the horse stuff is staying. I was thinking though, I have a lot of pantry supplies that I would like to pack and take with me. I just bought a new jar of peanut butter and I won't be able to use that before I leave...ugh! Anyone know if it is a problem to pack up non-perishable stuff and ship it to Japan?
