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)

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
