    Awesome! Thanks so much for this site!! So helpful. I think I'll get the small first aid kits on sale for about $2 each and add some Pepto into them.

    http://www.first-aid...medications.htm

     

    It's got name brands at super affordable prices. I'm going to order Advil, Pepto, bandaids and such from here. Hope it's helpful!!

      Can you tell me about your travel mugs, or do you have any photos?  Where did you get the made?  Were they a pain in the ass to pack?  I really want to do this but these are my concerns.  

      Thank you!

        The stickers are being shipped today and I should have them by this weekend. I'll post a photo once I get the sticker on the mug. I have not done the whole process yet but I'll let you know how it goes. I did check and they will fit in my carry-on with all of the other fragile stuff I'm bringing to Mexico. I feel like it will go smoothly, but I've never done this before.

          These are all amazing ideas!  Thanks so much to everyone for sharing!  Has anyone had any issues getting any items through customs?  We're getting married in Mexico and I've heard bad things about shipping items, so I'd like to avoid that.  However, I'd also like to avoid getting anything taken in customs.  Thanks!

              I'm starting to make a list of items I'm going to be including in the OOT bags, so I can purchase them over the next year.  Are you all doing one OOT bag per guest, or are you doing one per room?  I saw someone post earlier about doing a separate kids bag, and this is an incredible idea, so I'll have to find some items to put in those as well.

                I found some watches on eBay for $1 - $2 each. not only are they available in lots of colors, they're WATERPROOF. they also have some that glow and kid sizes.

                 

                just wanted to share in case anyone is working on bags now. : )

                  sure! and now that I think about it, it's probably more relevant for the girls than the guys. we ordered a couple of the kids' glow watches for Christmas, and they were great! they came with a spare battery, too. just be sure to order pretty far in advance. they're shipped from overseas and will take about a month to arrive.
