Leave your smokes at home!! They are only $15-$18 per carton here! By the pack in a gas station they are only $2. And you can each take 5 cartons home, duty-free! Load up! I was gonna quit smoking tillI moved here...now I smoke twice as much! Haha!

Where are you coming from where they are only $30/carton? Most places in the States are about $35-$40 per. In Canada they are like $9 a pack! Yikes!

Here:

Gas has been at $2.45/gal for the last 2 years here

Milk - $6/gal

Rum...$3 per bottle at K-mart!!!! Woohoo! So, even though we pay thru the nose for some things...we don't CARE!! Haha!

Tam,

I always buy my cigarettes at the airport before i leave the states for the Caribbean.
And on my return to the states I buy again at the airport. Duty free. Just show your ticket that you are leaving.

Just a suggestion.
