CANADIAN OOT BAG info...where to shop!

Recommended Posts

FYI - For those who are looking for 2-packs of advil/tylenol and pepto. Amazon.com has them for $12 for 50 2-packs. It works out to .25 cents for a 2-pack!

 

Not sure what the shipping would come to but it might be worth it.

Check Amazon Canada, amazon.ca - they don't have as much as the US site, of course, but it might have something!

Idea for OOT Bags. I was at Dollarama and found 20 lens cleaners for a dollar. They are like wet naps. Good for sunglasses and cameras. I use them for my glasses all the time and even cleaned my ipod with one the other day after some fun with a 3 year old and sticky fingers. They also have the dry cloths.

I ordered these totes for everyone, but for parents and wedding party I also got bigger totes from this site for $3.40 each

I cannot wait for them to come! I have been shopping and looking for these for 3 months!!! I am so excited they are finally ordered.

Also ordered insulated mugs from discountmugs.com. We got acrylic outside with double insulated stainless steel inside.....here they $15 each without set up fees. I ordered them with art, set up fees, shipping etc...they are going to be less than $5 each. So I am happy about saving money and the FI is ok with that because he does not think it is too extravigant:) Win win! Woohoo...less than 6 weeks to go!
Hi Raykel,

I was wondering how much is shipping from discountmugs? I

I ordered my mugs from discountmugs.com as well. Shipping was reasonable.

 

Shipping from Oriental Trading on the other hand, is ridiculous!! Their stuff is super cheap, but you must have the same billing address as shipping address so you can't even have them shipped to someone in the US for you.

Once you get to the actual international shipping page it's like $25US extra just for shipping... for a $15 purchase, it's so not worth it!

 

I have shopped from Amazon.com a few times now and their shipping has been very reasonable.. not sure why it would be $150?

 

I am back to square one on my wrist coil keychains for the key/tip holders as the place I've been trying to order them has twice now cancelled my order after I've placed it saying they're out of stock! (Actually I just got an email as I was typing this from the owner of the company that health issues are affecting the operation of his business and now I feel bad for complaining to him about this sad.gif)

 

I've seen some crappy ones at the Dollar store, but does anyone have any suggestions on where I can order these?

Amy - you completely just answered the question I came on to ask everyone, about the shipping/duty charges from Oriental Trading Co.! I was looking there this morning myself for a set of carabiners because that's what I wanted to use to attach my keycards to my mugs and I seem to have lots the ebay user that I had been comparing with.

 

What company is it that you've been dealing with to try and get the coils?

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • 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.
