"A lot" is not the same as "enough". ;-)
I would calculate more "tight" - people tend to bring way too much. I regret not having tried some of the packages and ziplocs along the way. We would have survived with our breakfast (even though oatmeal-packages can be found, just don't like them), less bars and for dinner check what was left behind in the bear box.
I collected a little toothpaste and two smaller empty (Thai sauce mentioned on the tag) Nalgene bottles from two different bear boxes, just because I thought useful little things for the future. Unfortunately we had a bit too much food ourselves, carrying even food for the following hike - where we met the couple that was so wise to try backpacking along the Juan de Fuca Trail before hitting the WCT the following week (which is harder in the middle than any West Coast Trail section with the many ups and downs - so perhaps they gained again a false impression but learned on the first day: we packed too much food).
