    Inspired by Stephanie, I made these first aid kits.

    I’m still waiting on my lip balm labels to arrive.

    My imodium packets (including template)

    A powerpoint with my cover image (from Stephanie), advil packets, and drug safety sheets is attached. Feel free to “borrow” it.

    If it isn’t clear from the picture, the packets are 4x4 squares of paper. I folded them & taped them to make a little envelope.

    I will add the pills when I get to Mexico, because they need to be in their original container for customs.

        I thought I'd just add what all I am putting in our OOT bags

        First aid kits
        cup with guests names painted on them
        small combo master lock for luggage with safety tips
        3 riviera maya postcards
        OK magazines (from my subscription)


        left to buy/make

        water & snacks we buy when we get there
        spanish to english phrases
        tote bags
        photo share card
        welcome letter
        things to do in RM brochure

        I just did an estimate of what I've spent per pag. This is assuming I'll make 16. I still don't really know who many guests well have. I'm doing 1 bag per room.

        total per bag
        OOT bag 3 postcards per person10.63 (with 52 leftover)
        OOT bag cups 3.2.25
        OOT bag first aid kits (14) 151
        OOT bag 96 immodium 10.63
        OOT bags advil 5.31
        OOT bag SPF chapstick (30) (ebay)7.57.47 (with 14 leftover- will probably give 2 per person)
        OOT bag misc printing 201.25
        OOT bag totes 161
        OOT bags master locks (16) 362.25
        magazines 0
        kleenex 4 .25

        I'm at about $8 per bag ($128 ) & I still need to buy snacks to add to it. Crazy how fast it adds up. The locks were the most expensive, but I really like them. I can program the combo to be anything. I really wanted to do what I could to keep our guests stuff safe.

              Here is what I have so far. The locks haven't come in. I also haven't bought the actual bags. I wanted to keep the contents small so it was easy to pack.

              I also have the welcome letter & more paper stuff to print. I will probably throw in post its & a pen.

                Ohhhh....you used Brain Candy!! <laughs> I LOVE that!!! Very cool.

                I have a question....where are you getting your tote bags? I was looking at the ones on Oriental Trading POst. They are cheap, but upon looking at them...they are VERY small. Where are you getting yours? I only want to spend like, a dollar on them...but I don't want teeny tiny ones either.

                  I haven't found any yet. I'm waiting until the spring when there is more likely to be cute, cheap totes in stores. I only want to spend a dollar, too.
