CANADIAN OOT BAG info...where to shop!

Recommended Posts

Thought I would fill in my fellow Cdn brides with some info.

 

1) Last night at Costco I purchased a product called: Health Balance: Diarrhea Relief. I read the ingredients and compared it to Immodium, which was also there. Same ingredients. It was 9.99 for 84 caplets. Inside the box were 14 packets containing 6 tablets each....I will include the ingredients + directions in the bag with each packet. I love it....and no shipping from the US. 

2) I just went through my flyers and spotted some good deals. Here they are: Giant Tiger: has an item called a "water wallet". They come in different colours, appear to be a hard plastic case, have a seal/lock sort of thing and come on a lanyard thingy. They are on sale for $3.97. They also have some casual ladies sandals on sale. They look like a cork flip flop - for $5.

3) Jysk has an item called "moon lanterns" on sale. They hold a tea light/candle in the inside and are surrounded by glass. I already bought these and they are fabulous. They come in about 4 colours (I bought yellow). I'd say they stand about 8 or 9 inches tall. On sale for $3.99.

4) A liquidation type of place called : Smart Deals Canada has pashmina's listed for $5..and it says compare at $34.95??? The picture looks good. Think I'll check it out.

That's my update for now! LOL

I used the same stuff from Costco instead of Imodium!  Definitely a way better cost effective way of getting the "Diarrhea Relief" meds in your OOT bags.  I just typed up the instructions, recommended dose etc and printed them on regular mailing labels - then I stuck those on a little "meds instructions" card in my first aid kits!

Hey Ladies,

 

Just wanted to let you all know, if anyone is looking for tumblers there is an amazing deal on at Walmart in the seasonal section. 4 tumblers for $1.50. You can then purchase sitckers to customize them as you please. Ps. www.weddingstar.com has some amazing stickers that can all be personalized.

The tumblers come in 4 different colors: Red, Green, Yellow, and Turquoise! They are an amazing deal! We bought 12 packages (48 tumblers) for $18 + tax.

In case you are looking for some travel sized games that aren't regular playing cards, Superstore often has card games on sale for under $3.00 (e.g., Mad Gab, Monopoly Deal, Trivial Pursuit, Scrabble Slam, etc).  I've bought a few of these for myself, and next time I see them on sale I will be picking them up for my OOT bags (since I have a lot of family and friends who love playing games).

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
