Hi purple box buddie I dont really know to be honest, first thoughts some wine glasses and proper plates and knives and forks for the studio, the little Christmas ornaments that Peggy put on our tree for us came home with us and will be going back with is so maybe those, there wont be any leftover wine so thats no good US hair straighteners I think, toiletries?? its very exciting isn't it. Share with me whats going in yours, I may get some ideas

We-ell, I did think about trainers and gym clothes but then Richard slapped me across the face and I came to my senses!!! Sooo I'm thinking an airbed (should the kids not wanna share a bed ), a games console and Baileys. I'm not very imaginative...

The game console is a great idea - as is the Baileys

Now lets see if that illusive tag fairy gives out a Loving my Purple Box tag

It really is a good idea, im just glad you guys mentioned the savings offer, makes a difference. Im already compling a list of what to put in it when we go back. I have even thought about buying a cheapy US laptop to leave in there for our visits, especially as the internet is going to be free to DVC owners, it all helps

Jules - I agree about no leftover wine but we do have an unopened bottle of wine in the box so we can have it there the day we arrive. For some reason there seems to be a full bottle of gin too!

Hi, Mousesavers code still working today. I've got a list as long as my arm - as well as the g+t, I've put down US hair straighteners for my dd, a water filter jug + filters for taking water to the parks, Yankee candles, Disney mugs, glasses etc, 1st aid stuff, decent coffee, laundry things (laundry balls, stain remover, tumble dryer balls, maybe a collapsible hamper for dirty things), toiletries (shower cap, nail things, soap, crystal deodorant, tweezers, cotton wool etc), pens, pads, scissors, sellotape, post-it notes, maybe some Disney dvds, and the list goes on. Also like the idea of cheap US laptop.

Signed up for one the other day(thanks for the mousesavers $50).
Was planning ahead and looking at the expiry on opened toiletries. While most are use within 12 months have found that Imperial Leather shower gel and handwash are 36 months.
Also, do you think it will be better to buy crockery etc in Walmart or to bring a cheap set from home?

Can't wait to try this out.
Marie

I'd buy it in Wal-Mart - it's bound to be cheaper and you might get a funky Disney design

It's a great offer I am sure they must have had a flurry of people sign up. I saw the idea last year but the sign up fee put me off. I was having a look at their website forum and they have some photos of decorated boxes, they look great. I have a list of things I want to store and the function in the website to keep a track of what is stored is great.

A big thanks from me too. I also signed up at last

I had been thinking about this but the discount just sealed the deal. Thought I'd missed my chance but I signed up about 10 mins ago and got the $50 off. I'm not going back until June 2009 so I've got plenty of time to gather hints from everyone else and plan what's going in it

Thanks for the tip on the discount everyone These boards are great.
