    Am I the Only One? (trip prep)

    Well we are just over a month out and my Aruba obsession has kicked in to high gear. Am I the only one who finds themself compulsively shopping for their trip? Every day in looking for things that I just have to have for the trip...sundresses, insulated cups, a new bathing suit, and miscellaneous other gadgets or comforts. let's face it, I don't need any of this stuff but it happens to me every trip.

    The papasan floats are so easy and convenient. Great purchase. We have them and use them almost every day.

    I took Andrea' s advice and put in an order on eBay for sunblock, definitely a good savings.

    I also need a new waterproof camera since we ruined ours last year being careless. This time we are buying a protection plan!

    not yet for me, or i should say sort of not.
    i have bought numerous kindle and audio books and i do not expect to be doing all that reading or listening.

    i too also bought some neutrogena # 30 sunblock 6, spa 30, for $18 on eBay.
    we have been preoccupied with our family visiting.

    The first step is admitting you have a problem.

    I don't buy a thing at this point for my trips outside of sunblock if we are not at the Ritz as they supply it there.

    I'm 5 months out and am already hitting up the summer sales for my trip. I'm also obsessively going over our budget for each day (which I know will change once there). Also making daily itineraries, which again, I know will change. I think my hubby is getting just a tad irritated, lol

    Just printed out our 14 Day AUA Packing List yesterday. In full-preparation mode now, constantly scanning flyers for deals on anything we need.
