Travel wash for socks, thermals, t shirts. Do it every day for your first three days if you got three pairs of socks and your sorted for the week. first pair will be dry by day four regardless of heating system in your accommodation. It does not take long. Take hand warmers with you a lot cheaper than in resorts. Would try to get balaclavas invade very cold.better to have them and not need them, than need them and not have them.
Multi pack of mini chocs you can never go wrong!

Thank you all for your comments. Lots of ideas here and good suggestions. I will try to borrow but may end up having to buy most of it. If I am going to places like TK Maxx how do I know what is good quality and what is not (especially regarding the jacket)

Ian, that's your opinion & only yours also if they don't smell why did you say you would put them under my pillow, or was that just to keep them warm & the bacteria alive
