Installing Stretch/Testing with absolute minimal bandwith useage

I am running Stretch that was fully updated/upgraded less than a week ago. I have the flash drive used to do the original install of Stretch. I have not _intentionally_ purged any files from cache.

I wish to install Stretch on two additional machines. I am near my internet data cap and wish to make *ABSOLUTE MINIMAL* usage of available bandwidth.

The purpose of this is to test the _installation process_ itself. That eliminates anything resembling cloning. A secondary benefit will be learning more about how Debian does things.
