Just got me OOT bags in the mail!

 

Cheaptotes.com http://cheaptotes.com/cgi-bin/image/templates/bb041.jpg

3.49 each in orange

 

Ordered on Sat. delivered on Fri. (5 bus. days)

 

Pros: perfect color! quick delivery! nice gusseted bottom/ wide base!

 

Cons: material could be thicker/stiffer - picture depicts a wider bag (like a boat tote not book tote)

 

Overall, I am happy that I upgraded the bag in leau of personalizing the .99 bag. While both would have looked nice it's just one less thing to DIY. Still the best value on line without having to carry high minimums.

Oriental Trading company has a special right now if you order $75 worth by Jan. 25, you get free shipping!

 

I'm buying the 10" fans, personalized wedding pencils, white baseball caps, & palm pens.

 

Just FYI, you want to avoid those shipping costs!

Scented candle tin

Beach safe container
Cactus lollipop

White bag with red beach chair design - $10.00

Kleenex tissues
Lip balm
Flip-flop notepad
Wrigleyâ€s gum
Beach theme disposable camera
Sun block
Breath mints


Canvas beach tote with wedding cake design - $14.00

Sun block
Tums
Flip-Flop floating candle
Extra gum
Deck of cards
Lip balm

I think I'm going to mix and match some of the items from each and go from there.

They contain:

Welcome and Tnank you letter

Wedding Day itinerary

1 Pashmina (thanks Glenda!)

1 Hand Sanitizer

1 First aid kit

1 Roll-up plastic beach safe

1 Deck flip-flop shaped playing cards

2 flip-flop shaped notepads

1 Seed Bead Pen

1 Fiesta Maraca Pen

1 Travel Dramamine (10 tabs)

2 2-pk Extra-Strength Tylenol

2 2-pk Immodium

1 Kleenex packet

1 Chapstick

1 Travel Coppertone Sport

2 Shout wipes individually wrapped

1 Rolaids

1 Spanish/English Dictionary (It's awesome and from the Dollar Store!!)

2 Custom Koozies (will post a pic when they arrive- still anxiously waiting for them!). They have the same design as the bag, but are silver metallic on red.

 

The total cost for each of my bags is (gulp) $24.61. This includes everything, bag and all. I don't think I should have added this up! But, I only had 10 so I wanted them to be nice. We'll also buy some snacks and maracas when we get to Cabo, so they will end up being pretty close to $30 by the time all is said and done.

Sarah, that's actually pretty good - that's what I expected to fork over for my OOT bags - and at least it's a cost that is gradual ... you're buying things as you find them.

 

What's the roll-up safe? Sounds cool.
