    my dermatologist says it is a marketing ploy.
    he says the ones with zinc oxide in it last years.
    the ones we had left in aruba were still within date when we used it.

    the sunlotion i use every day rarely lasts very long, so it goes empty way before expiration.
    the no ad lotion (#15) that i use daily and just bought expires in Jan 2017.
    if weather is good here, i may get thru the rest of october with it

    And doesn't sunscreen expire? Or is that just a marketing ploy to get us to throw away the unused sunscreen & buy new each year?

    I'm a little curious. Are you folks who use storage staying for extended periods of time? DW and I stay in our timeshare for two weeks once a year and never felt the need for storage. We manage on one checked bag each and buy what we need or borrow it from the timeshare (pool noodles, etc).

    We have used this company since their second year in business and we actually have 2 bins and my kids keep telling me to get a 3rd but I am not relenting just yet!

    Lou and Joanne are amazing to deal with and very reliable. The bins are always waiting for us upon our return to Aruba and pick up at the end of our trip is very easy. You just email them about 3 weeks prior to arrival and I usually arrange pick up at that time too. We love the bins!! When they pick the bins up at the end of our trip we pay our storage fee (cash only) and we get a receipt.

    We store our floats so we don't have to bring them every trip, flip flops, collapsible cooler, all our ziplocs, saran and tinfoil. We put in the bin any leftover plastic cutlery, paper plates, napkins, etc. Tide pods, leftover shampoo, shaving cream, hair spray, etc. We leave extra toothbrushes, hair brushes and razors and various spices (salt, pepper, etc)bug spray and leftover sunscreen. Many of these are in large ziploc bags and in our cooler. Its amazing how quickly you fill up these bins. I keep a list of what I have stored and a list of what else to bring next trip. I don't think I would last without these bins.
    happiness is going to Aruba with your adult kids because they still want to come with their parents
