Brainstorming thread for consumables you like to carry, and why:
(Magic Item)

Level 1+
Scroll of Comprehend Languages (25gp) - Hand it to the Arcane caster if you can't use it. 25gp to avoid a combat is well worth it.
Antitoxin (50gp) +5 to Fort saves vs. poison
Antiplague (50gp) +5 to Fort saves vs. disease OR two immediate saves if infected, taking the better roll
Potion of Cure Light Wounds (50gp) - Healz
Potion of Enlarge Person (50gp) - So cheap for so much win
Oil of Bless Weapon (50gp) - Makes a weapon count as magic vs. evil and incorporeal, makes your weapon good aligned, automatically confirms crits vs. evil creatures
Potion of Touch of the Sea, poured into Potion Sponge (52gp) - Swim speed 30 ft for 1 minute. The sponge takes a full round action to "drink" but makes it usable underwater. For someone in full plate this could be a lifesaver.
Potion of Air Bubble (50gp) - Touch of the Sea will usually render this moot, but suffocation is a hell of a way to go
Wand of Cure Light Wounds (750gp) - BYOH
Wand of Mage Armor (750gp) - Good for monks, casters, or anyone fighting incorporeal stuff

Level 4+
Potion of Cure Moderate Wounds (300gp) - Moar healz plz
Oil of Daylight (750gp) - Darkness kills
Potion of Darkvision (300gp) - Deeper Darkness kills deeper
Snapleaf (750gp) Immediate action Feather Fall AND Invisibility

Level 7+

Potion of Fly (750gp) - Things start flying around level 10, which means you'll start needing these around level 7.

One of my favorite consumable magic items is elixir of spirit sightsee invisibility and ghost touch in one shot for 1000 gp. (The source is admittedly obscure.)

Snapleaf deserves kudos cos it falls within the 2 prestige point limit, as do the stunstone (poor man's glitterdust) and the feather token (tar and feathers) (which is an actual glitterdust).

For more mundane stuff, count me in on alkali flasks and liquid ice.

Speaking of the 750 gp limit for 2 prestige, a lot of people don't know that you're allowed to get a single scroll with multiple copies of the same spell on it by spending prestige. So you can get a scroll with 5 copies of a level 2 spell (150 gp each) or 2 copies of a level 3 spell (375 gp each) for 2 prestige.

Just don't ask me where I learned this. I think it was a forum post on the Paizo forums by Mike Brock, but I couldn't give you a link without some serious digging.

I'm a huge fan of the Skeleton Key (85gp)

Many door locks have a similar design and thus can be unlocked by a similar key. A skeleton key may be tried on any standard door lock that uses a key, even if you don’t have the Disable Device skill. You use the key’s Disable Device bonus of +10 rather than your own total; you cannot take 10 when using a skeleton key. The key only gets one roll for any particular lock. If the roll fails, the key is unable to open or close that lock. Inferior skeleton keys may only have a +5 bonus.

HERE is a link to Mike Brock's response on the scrolls. With his response highlighted. For posterity purposes.

On a side note, I was under the impression that you are limited to no more than 4 spells per scroll... but after some quick research, apparently, I'm wrong and there is no limit.
