    Hi Ladies!

    So, I'm thinking that one thing I'd really like to include in our OOT bags is some sort of pouch that will hold a room key and a bit of money for tips, all on a wrist strap.

    I have two options for pouches:

    One has a zip seal and is solid on one side, and is a little bigger than my other option. It costs $20 for 50 of them. The other is clear on both sides and doesn't seal, but I can get them from my office at no cost. Ultimately, it's $20 so no biggie.

    I figure I will line the pouch with a piece of paper printed with our logo so people can hide the contents (plus, more logo - yay!).

    Here is a photo of the one that seals:

    And this is the other:

    I found the wrist straps at OTC ($3/23)

    So, which would you prefer - the clear one that doesn't seal that will have the logo on both sides, or the one that seals with the logo just on one side?

      What a good idea! If I was the guest I would like the one that seals - it looks like you could fit some cash in there too - that way people wouldn't have to take there wallet/purse - great for the beach or by the pool!

        I do like the one that seals better -- and I think it would be better for your guests -- if you can swing the cost.

        Buit the second option is also good -- especially b/c it's free!!

          I like the first option! We have one that is more hard plastic with a snap but same idea and it's awesome!

            That's a great idea! I would have loved to have one of those while we were in Jamaica! I would go with one that seals, that way they might even be able to take it in the pool to tip the guys at the swim up bars...

                  What a great idea! I like the one that seals too, so that I wouldn't have to worry about my money slipping out.

                    I vote for the ones that seal, so that your guests can put cash in them if they want.

                      I would also go with the one that seals. Im also doing something like this. Im interested in seeing what you decide on.
                      Where did you find the sealed pouches?
