    Tracey...... You're not a trend setter here.......... I think we all do it.... not the first to do it and not the last. It's part of the trip ritual.

    we bought Pool Float Floating Water Hammock Lounge and they were very useful on Arashi and Palm Beach.

    I'm going to have to show that to Jon. He doesn't really love the papasan. Are those ends hard to inflate just with your breath? That's the plus about the papasan.

    No, not at all. I did three of them at once. At the end of the trip we left them for our local friends to use in their pool. Time to buy a new ones for ourselves

    BTW, KMart have a great deal ( only on blue ones) - $8.49

    Just found another useful thing for the upcoming trip. Not sure how good it is, but reviews are great.

    After purchasing the condo in March of this year, we started buying things we know we'll need and we did not plan on going until Jan. Now that we added Dec. for a week, I lugged down the large duffle bags to the basement where we have everything on a table and started packing the stuff to see how much we can take in December and what if anything will be left for January. Right now I have two full duffle bags and haven't gotten to the box of stuff hubby has set aside which should fill a large suitcase along with what I haven't backed into the duffles. After everyone leaves after Thanksgiving, I'll haul it all up to the living room and repack and see what else I can buy to take in Dec. and then again when we go for 12 weeks in Jan. I plan on figuring out clothing and packing it up once the weather gets colder here.

    This is probably the first year I have not done this, usually guilty as well. I am so behind my usual schedule as I am getting closer to my trip date. Have a 3 day weekend plan on deciding what to bring, start packing, do my ED Card and all that fun stuff. Yes, I actually do have fun packing and planning but can't believe I haven't started yet! Have updated my excel sheet with a few new items and deleting other stuff so guess that counts for something

    I don't need to have a trip planned to shop for an Aruba vacation. Year round I buy something that would be "great for Aruba"!

    Sometimes I have too much new stuff. Is that a problem?










    Hoping for a 30th anniversary trip to our favorite place.

    we stored 2 pool noodles in the timeshare storage box.
    well, we gave up the box and now cannot fit our noodles in our rolling duffle bags

    so we ordered these! https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...F7TA5CPX&psc=1
    QUOTE=Traceyd14;323441]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.[/QUOTE]

    Admitting you have a problem is the fist step to recovery......!

    But anything related to Aruba couldn't possibly be a problem.
