Should be able to store whole listbox in session:

 ListBox1.Items.Add("hello");
            ListBox1.Items.Add("hello1");
            ListBox1.Items.Add("hello2");
            ListBox1.Items.Add("hello3");

            Session["myListBox"] = ListBox1;

            ListBox listnew = Session["myListBox"] as ListBox;

            foreach (var item in listnew.Items)
            {
                Response.Write(item.ToString());
            }

concerned of memory ? can do this:
   StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();        
        foreach (ListItem i in lst)
        {
            sb.Append(i.Text); sb.Append("|");
        }
        Session["Items"] = sb.ToString();
        foreach (string s in Session["Items"].ToString().Split(new char['|'], StringSplitOptions.RemoveEmptyEntries))
        {
            lst.Items.FindByText(s).Selected = true;
        }

thanks for quick response this is the coding i have in my cart.apsx.cs file

   if (e.CommandName == "ADD")
                    {
                                               
                    int index = Convert.ToInt32(e.CommandArgument);
                    GridViewRow selectedRow = GridView1.Rows[index];
                    TableCell ProductID = selectedRow.Cells[0];

                    TableCell PName = selectedRow.Cells[1];
                    TableCell PDescription = selectedRow.Cells[2];
                    TableCell Price = selectedRow.Cells[3];
                    int Quantity = 1;

                    ListItem item = new ListItem("Product Name: "+PName.Text + "  " +"Product Description: " + PDescription.Text + "  " +"Price Per Item: £"+ Price.Text + "  "+"Quantity: "+ Quantity);
                    ListItem item1 = new ListItem(Price.Text);
                         

                   
                        ListBox1.Items.Add(item);
                        Session["Cart1"] = ListBox1;
                    }
                 
                 
               
}

Hopefully the Session[cart1] = listbox1 should store the listbox into session,
what i cant work out is how to reteive this listbox from another aspx page called checkout from the page_load method.

From Page2 (where want to access the listbox from session)
public partial class Page2 : System.Web.UI.Page
    {
        protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            ListBox listnew = Session["myListBox"] as ListBox;

            foreach (var item in listnew.Items)
            {
                Response.Write(item.ToString());
            }
        }
    }
