      I am guessing for 20 people it will cost about 145 for the bag and contents.

        We are doing 30 bags and included 1 towell per person so our's are a bit more. I have spent a little over $1k, but this includes specialty items for my 3 non-BM's and 3 mother's bags & 1 Gma bag. More than I wanted but I think people will enjoy them.

          I am trying to keep cost down. So we have been using store points to purchase most of the contents. We get points at a drug store and our superstore grocery store. So far for the 20 bags we have spent about $70 (which includes the bag and a travel mug per person among other things)

                I have absolutely no idea how much I spent on my Oot bags! LOL. I also had a problem saying "when" so my bags were pretty full. If I had to guess, I would say about $400.00

                    Thanks for the input! I just wasn't sure if there was a standard we should be aiming for. I want the bags to be mostly-full, and I don't want anyone thinking I was a cheapskate either! I was originally thinking of spending about $15 per bag, but I think when I'm done, I'll have spent more like $25 per bag. And, we're doing about 20 bags... mostly for couples, but we have some single guys, some single women, and a few children to buy for as well. So, I guess that's $500 budget... that will have to be appropriate! :)
