CANADIAN OOT BAG info...where to shop!

Recommended Posts

Anyone looking for mugs that aren't worried about baggage weight or have a small group, there are those freezer ones (the kind with the coloured liquid inside) at Zellers for I think it was $1.69 each. They were in turquoise, pink or green. I would have loved to get them but I'm already overboard in weight and with 50 guests....LOL.

Well as you can see my wedding isn't for awhile so I'm going the slow route and getting the free pen with every order I put in. I think someone else suggested you sign up for their emails and I recommend that as well. I've been doing a lot of printing through them and its all for free other than shipping. Sorry I don't have any insider tips other than to sign up for the emails and just place small orders and get a pen with every order(I'm doing the same thing for hats). Sometimes after you place your order they will give you additional deals with the shipping included and I got an extra pen for only a few dollars. Hope that helps you even a little bit.

I was recently at the big Dollar store on Douglas St in Victoria and picked up $1 crossword and sudoku books, plus I noticed they also had the $1 first aid kits and some other great stuff in the pharmacy aisle.

I'm currently looking for Spanish for Dummies, playing cards, bubble bath or bath salts, and individual packets of alka-slezer immodium or pepto. If anyone has any ideas on where to get this stuff I'd be greatly appreciative.

Also, I have yet to buy my actual bags...I've been looking on some American based websites and found some great tote bags, but with the exchange rate, etc the cost is slowly creeping up and I was hoping to spend only around $5 per bag.

Thanks in advance and I look forward to sharing!
Hey Beach Bride,

I have a very cool family doctor who I get a long with great. I asked him if he had any sample packets of immodium, tylenol etc. He said he'd hook me up with what he had, whenever I'm ready. Also, for the things he didn't have, he suggested asking at thte pharmacy that's in the same parking lot. They know who he is so, I might try to name drop and see if they'll help out. If these aren't an option, you could try asking at the pharmacy if you can buy induvidual packets or boxes of them. Good luck!

Very true! I'm a new Avon Rep (not even quite sure what I'm doing yet, LOL) but I ordered some stuff from Avon as well.... they now have 79cent SPF lip balm, I ordered 40 as well as Aloe Vera (150 mL, decent size!) and they are $1.99, also ordered 40. They have some great OOT fillers. Check it out AVON CANADA I also ordered my earrings for the wedding day and was pleasantly surprised, they are super cute and were $9.99!

I bought my bags from Dollar Giant, some paper pads and stationary from Micheals, pens from Staples, and hand sanitizer from Walmart and candies and some other random items from Costco

Punkie569 - I am glad to see another bride that is getting married the end of 2010. It seems so far away but the time will just fly by. I find it helps with the budget to start buying now, doesn't seem to be as big of a shock to the wallet!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
