When did everyone start purchasing things for their OOT bags? I was at Big Lots (a closeout store) today and I found so many things for awesome prices, but I didn't know it they would be good in 22 months or not. So I ended up buying 10 packs of travel tissues with exotic flower prints for $1.00 and 10 mini notebooks for $2.00.

I had the same problem in the beginning.

 

I casually purchased things as the months went by, but refrained from buying stuff that would go bad.

I invited 140 guests and bought about 100 of each item. Now that my guest list is more tailored, I figure if I have left over I can sell the stuff.

I think you are supposed to throw out things like sunscreen after a year, but I'm sure there are somethings you could start buying if you have an idea of how many are going to come.

I started buying last month because I was reluctant like you but I just look at expiration dates and try to buy things that I know I can get more of if I need to. I started with pens, sticky notes, and hats from Vistaprint and recently my mission has been getting the Staples deal on mini Purell hand sanitizer (those expire in 2011 so I think I'm good haha!).

If you know about how many people are coming you can start buying just check the exp date if it might go bad by your wedding.

Our wedding is a year away, but i have started buying for our OOT bags. I figure if we get a little at a time it will be less of a shock to our bank account. i am holding off to buy snack, lotions, Meds and other things that do expire or evaporate.

I have some time before our wedding, but I bought the one cent hand sanitizer from staples also. I figured if they go bad I can always buy a regular size and refill all the small bottles that I have. I was able to buy 100 of them. If you are able to refill the mini bottles I say go for it and buy them when they are on sale. (lotions, soaps, hand sanitizers)

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
