Hmmm.... I'm heading down next week actually (3/5-3/12), So I don't see any reason why i can't help kick this thing off by leaving stuff for the next group.


I guess the big question would be if i'm going to be the official first person, what should i stock the thing with to begin? To be honest, i'm not sure how much stuff I'll have, but I don't forsee having any problems throwing spending a little extra to give us a proper starting point on the kit that could be reusable.


Maybe a nice plastic tote..... index cards? marker? Some tape? (Hey! maybe even a Lime Green Mickey to secure to the tote to help with identification?)

Yes, you can kick off the #1 Pay it Forward!!! Thanks!!
But, please just leave non perishable items you have left over. No need to "stock it", as we are just trying to not "waste" items that we could give to another DIS family.
If you decide to get a plastic box, that is fine, just not too big. I am picturing something like half the size of a regular plastic tote. Maybe something solid colored. Or, just a regular cardboard box that we can tape up. Another poster who participated in this last year used a fabric grocery bag and tied the handles together and attached the incoming families name to it....that would also be great!

So, how does that sound everyone??

Obviously I'd leave any non-perishable items I had left over, but at the same time, I'm not sure how much I'll have. I'll probably be doing a lot of eating out and stuff, so I'm not sure how much stuff I'll be buying.

My "stocking" idea was more along the lines of simple stuff to facilitate the passing of the box between families. IE... A reuseable tote to put stuff in. Index cards to write the next family's name on. Tape to attach the index card to the box. Was thinking taping the LGM chip on it would also help with indentifying and marking the box.

At the very least, it would provide everything needed to pass it on to the next family without having to worry about tracking down tape/paper to put the next family's info on.

Great! Thanks, that sounds wonderful, I appreciate your willingness to help get things going.

As we move forward, it might be nice if we get updates from people on the status of the box.

Unfortunately, yes. Also, nothing will be refrigerated. But, we have left ketchup and mustard packs from fast food restaurants that we went to during the week.

ok cool. I'm sure I'll find loads of things to leave though. I usually hate being wasteful of anything I don't need but someone else might.

The unfortunate thing is that Mustard is one of those things that should be refrigerated after opening. Since there is no telling how long it'll sit in the room waiting to be picked up, or how hot it could get.... it's better safe than sorry.
