As I explained there, I would delete the VM once done for the day (set of
days where you're working on a functionality).
Given the nature of minishift, and if caching is properly configured (which
by default is not), and the time it takes to create a new VM, I would
destroy every time you move locations, that means, you go to a conference,
day one, create a VM, use it, stop it. Day 2 start, use stop, day 3, last
day, start, use and delete.
I would recommend you to stop the vms, for which desktop integration will
help to remember, if your not going to use minishift.
Also, virtualbox reserves the memory and cpu you set, which means that if
you forget to stop it, it'll be used, all of it. Xhyve on the contrary,
just use what it needs and when it needs it.
Hope this helps.

This is the workflow I typically advocate:
I use profiles and the image caching (which you showed me in Barcelona).
And the core of my question is "how often do I use minishift delete"?
Every day? Every week?
