10 Budgeting Tips for the Frugal Minded :)

Recommended Posts

We are doing OOT bags for each person.  We found some online for very inexpensive - 40 for $35.  Not sure about everything that we will put in them, but we will place the itinerary for the week (any group events that we will plan), itinerary for day of the wedding, information and map of the resort, information about what to do in the area, etc...Since we are doing OOT bags, we will not do favors at the wedding.  Our resort will give them to guests at check in.

Thanks for the ideas on the OOT bags ladies.  We're getting married at the NOW Jade resort in Puerto Morelos and I want to bring as little with me as possible but I want something sincere in people's rooms when they arrive.  So many choices... I was thinking of having luggage tags made and used as favors/place holders at the reception, but again I want people to actually use them later!

So this may be a little off topic but has anyone ordered or seen wedding dresses at Costco? Apparently, Kristie Kelly makes an exclusive Costco line. My mom was in Costco the other day and she said the dresses were really nice and were approximately $600-$1000 plus an additional 40% off.


Unfortunately, this is a traveling vendor who may not be coming to Montreal's costco anytime soon. :( I'd love to just look at them and try them on in person. If anyone has any experience with this vendor, please do share.

    • 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.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • 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!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
