i merged the 2 existing timeshare storage threads into 1.
also moved it out of airline/airfare and into the "general category"
Thanks for all the ideas.
i quickly repacked in my mind for things that I would leave there, now you guys have given me more ideas.
I really appreciate it , really!!!
there is a new Timeshare Storage company on Aruba
Lock N Roll Aruba Timeshare Storage
The owner of this new company is Liliana Garcia, formerly the timeshare liaison person at the Renaissance Ocean Suites.
Every year I say to Dh...we are going to take some good/large pans with us and buy a storage bin...every year I do not do it and b@#%h about it afterwards.
This year I think I may actually follow through and get one. Mostly I need it for cooking supplies since the TS's stuff is not nearly big enough to cook breakfast let alone a big meal for 8-10 people.
A question....is anybody from the forum utilizing these services and what do you think of it ???
ARUBA....HOME AWAY FROM HOME
My question is the cost. We only go once a year and about the only thing I can see keeping there is snorkel equipment, although I'm sure we will come up with some other things. Can I justify the cost?
Saw a post on Facebook that one couple are also planning to leave grilling tools. I could see if you cook a lot leaving things like that and foil. I don't know current prices but I've seen cost of the bin around $40 one time fee then $75 a year. Don't quote me on that..lol. If you go a couple times a year I could see it more about convenience and not having to pack and carry things and less about any cost savings.
Maybe Act1966 should build a shed out back and let us all start storing bins there
paul and i always have a debate re: timeshare storage and if it's worth the $70 or $75 p year and the $20 or $25 for additional delivery/pick ups for more than 1x a year. we fly SWA which has 2 checked bags FREE per passenger.
currently in our timeshare box we have:
2 full sets of snorkel gear
3 cans of aerosol sun block
his and hers flip flops
2 thick pool noodles (that fit although they have the permanent curve in them now)
aluminum foil, saran wrap, ziplock bags, lock n lock containers, 2 real large tervis tumblers w/lids.
shampoo, body wash, spray powder
napkins, paper towels, coffee filters
a lock n lock container with splendas, sugar, ketchup, mustard, mayo packs
1 lb dunkin
our dilemma is that we really have no need for the container and we really do not like paying the $
we were fortunate that dear friends stored our container when we had left timeshare storage, but we felt it was unfair to be a burden to them
and went back to timeshare storage.
all of our crapola....yes crapola can be brought from home and/or picked up in aruba.
that is our debate/dilemma. do we quit or do we continue?
ok...so I am like you Andrea...my biggest problem is that Dh loves to cook while in Aruba. We do not eat out as much as we used to. I would rather not spend the money going out to eat even thought many of the restaurants have great food. BUT...Dh makes the best sauce (being Italian) so we don't usually go for that while on the island (or home either), Steaks I can get home, Seafood is really the only thing that calls to me so we do do that a few times. The only other places we go to are Peanuts because I love their peanut sauce with the chicken satay.....So, I need to bring a nice size pot and skillet. To keep and not lug back and forth. I think that alone would be worth the money to buy a bin.....such big and important decisions I just don't know how to deal with them...teeheehee.....
Will work on it while I decide whether to vote for Trump, Hilary or just join the French Foreign Legion !!!!!!!
