What condiments can I keep at room temp for several days prior to moving?

We're moving out of our house prior to it being rented but will probably stay in the area for a number of days to take care of some business. We'll be staying with a friend and I'm sure among several people I can find room for any frozen items. But I have, as any proud CH does, way too many condiments. I keep almost all of them in the fridge as I actually have more room there than elsewhere. I'm sure not all of them need to be there. I'd appreciate any advice of what does or does not need to be refrigerated. And I imagine something that has already been open may have different requirements than unopened. I'm talking hot sauces, ketchup, mustard, horseradish, etc. Also opened jars of capers, sundried tomatoes, Kalamata olives. The things that need to be kept chilled that won't fit in our friends places, I suppose we can use a large cooler and just keep replacing the ice. It's also going to possibly be in the 90s (ugh) a little of that time. I'm guessing you're going to say keep it all chilled which is fine but figured I'd try to cheat where I can. Thanks in advance.
