Morning! I remember seeing a post awhile back about some people buying coolers during their grocery stop, using them in their rooms, instead of renting a fridge, and then leaving them for another family. I have been trying to tell dh that maybe we should try it when we are staying at ASMo in september for 8 days. But he really isn't buying it. I have seen picks of the fridges, and they look really small. We need to get at least 2 gallons of milk, plus other bigger things for our little ones, and I would like to get it all at once. Anyone have experience with this? Are there plenty of ice machines around? How often did you have to dump out water and refill cooler? What did you transport ice in or did you actually take cooler to machine each time? Where did you keep cooler at in the room? Tons of questions, sorry! TIA for any help!
