Stop wasting bandwidth with vagrant-cachier

If you have done any kind of Puppet manifests / Chef cookbooks development using Vagrant chances are that you’ve been staring at your screen waiting for the machine to be provisioned for really long periods of time, specially when you need to destroy the VM and start over.
