Hi Deb'sters!

Ok, while you and I are less stuff types of people, I've started to look into containers because of a couple of reasons, one getting daddy to part with his tools, might be a battle no mortal man can win. Second, I like having tools, while dad might be too old get under a car, I can still do an oil change for a fraction of the cost and hassle of Jiffy Lube (and I always feel kinda bad***** being a gal that can get her hands dirty). Third, we have one, but whether it's still "seaworthy" or up to date on it's certificates or whatever, I'll have to see, also I have some contacts in shipping/moving so I might get a real deal. Finally, I need to crunch the numbers and see if it's cheaper to bring items vs paying the island premium on goods.

Though, I agree that most people (especially my parents!) can use downsizing, so good post!

Thanks, Danni! Listen, tools are useful and valuable, and we are going to parcel post ones we really need, ones that are expensive.
