Packing List/Time Share

Hi everyone. Hubby and I ownes a time share at Aruba Divi, and last yr was the first time we stayed since we bought it in 2010. We bought everything at the grocery store, however I learned during our trip that most ppl bring things with them from the states. Anyone have advice or a packing list on what they bring, etc; condiments, paper towels, spices, zip-lock bags, etc.....any advice would greatly be appreciated.

Leaving in 24 days for 10 days of paradise.

Thanks, Shari

Cooler (soft)



, coffee filters

.zip lock bags for ice cubes for cooler,

corkscrew (we all have our favs),

floaties (buy at Walmart, target) used in ocean

lots of sunscreen

plastic wine /liquor glasses for poolside

crystal lite for (lemonade) for our vodka drinks - just one of our fav drinks

I also bring squewers (spelled that wrong) as we BBQ shrimp ,scallop,chicken etc shishkabobs on BBQ (our 3 bedroom condo has a private BBQ)

Get creative

I wouldn't bother with paper plates or cups (too much room in luggage)Just my opinion.

I have started packing this stuff for our July trip

Have a great time !!!!
