You are quite right Lisa, - I think I may have mentioned them - I know Merced Mike also carries a comprehensive 1st aid kit and it really doesn't take up that much room.
Also if I stay at a nice hotel and have forgotten a personal toiletry item - I acquire at the hotel. I plead guilty to forgetting a tootbrush occasionally - Chinese hotels are really good at supplying spares
