Five Below - OOT Bag HEAVEN!

Recommended Posts

Just an FYI that Five Below is an excellent place to acquire items for OOT bags. The best part is that everything is $5 or less! They have everything from beach bags and towels, to name brand sunscreen and travel toiletries for almost unbeatable prices. The downside is that they're only located in PA, MD, DE, VA, and NJ. We just have our immediate families traveling to Jamaica with us for our wedding (3 couples and 3 singles), so I'm preparing a total of 6gift bags to distribute in a few weeks just as a Thank You for making the trip and so that they have things with them that they may not otherwise, or may accidentally forget rolleyes.gif

 

Here's a list of the items that I came away with:

 

Toothbrush

Toothpaste

Gum

Banana Boat After Sun Lotion

Wet wipes w/ aloe

Tissues

Tide Liquid Detergent Travel Sink Packs

Nail file w/ carrying case

Crest mouthwash

and my favorite item - Banana Boat Sunscreen Lip Balm w/ SPF 30!

 

I did a search for this store in the forum, but came up empty-handed, so I apologize if someone has recently mentioned this store!

I am planning on stocking up for the kid's bags at Five Below. I can't believe how they can sell some of their stuff for less than $5!

I love how you added the Tide! Great idea, too bad we dont have one in GA!

 

On a sidenote, one thing you may want to remind guests about is that the nail file cannot be on/in the carryon bags! It will get confinsicated :~(

I didn't even know that existed: Tide Liquid Detergent Travel Sink Packs

I wonder where I could find it. Probably Walmart right? Have you ever used it before? I find liquid detergents sometimes leaves stains on clothes.. so I wonder how the travel sink packs will work.

Actually that's not 100% accurate, if it is the metal kind, it is allowed in both checked and carry-on bags as long as the metal sharp part is less than 4 inches. (I work for an airline)

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.

    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
