Hi all,
I'm trying to figure out some must haves for my move to stx next month. What are somethings you brought or wished you brought with you?

Now that you mention it that sandwich seems foreign to the islands. I would take some some general medicines like cold, allergy, vitamins, etc. These things are light but really cost you an arm and a leg down here. If you are bringing a car have someone go over it back in the main land.

Charlotte,

I just shipped another container down and I put in 2 cases of dukes. The container should be here this week. I will be happy to give you a jar.

Thanks Tammy, but I now live in Charlotte, N.C. and can get it when I want. I did live in STX for 6 months last year and should have taken some with me then.

Hey Bill (and everyone else :))

Don't forget that CVS (www.cvs.com) will ship to the VIs - Stateside prices on everything - vitamins, deodorant, shampoo, toothpaste, make up, swiffer cloths, sunblock, dryer sheets, even cereal 🙂 etc, etc, everything you get in a drugstore back in the States (I know some areas of the States do not have a CVS and if you moved from those areas you won't know what CVS is) and right now they have free shipping and $10.00 orders over $50.00 - gotta luv that - just bought $100.00 worth for $80.00 - did 2 orders of $50.00 each to take advantage of their offer - and shipped via Priority Mail free 🙂

I wish I would have brought down more sunscreen.

The stuff runs about $8 a bottle down here . . .

Hey piaa!

How did you get free Priority shipping? The CVS website claims only Standard shipping is free with a thirty dollar order and fifty dollar orders get ten bucks off. Priority shipping is listed as $12.95 per order so splitting one $100 order into two $50 orders as you did would save twenty bucks but cost $25.90 for Priority shipping.

Hey there,

I just clicked the order in - it always arrives Priority Mail - I never choose an option for shipping - I just go with the free shipping (and it turns out to be Priority to the UVI's 🙂 )

For what it's worth, CVS confirmed my order today and it is also being shipped for free by Priority Mail.

We received our priority mail shipped CVS package yesterday, chock full of nuts (so to speak), popcorn, and other amenities... We ordered jam as well, which was well-packed.
