    What section did you find the wrist coils? I've never noticed them!


    No problem!!! I have never seen them anywhere here in Canada but if I do come across them I will let you know!!!

     

    I was at walmart today and checked out the travel section, they have men and womens "travel kits" they are plastic zipper bags with a deoderant, toothpaste, travel toothbrush, razor, shampoo, conditioner and maybe a lotion in them  they were under $5, thought that if someone was looking at putting these items in their OOTs this would be a great purchase for them!

     

    The other thing I saw was a 52 pack of individually packed wet ones.  They were $1.27 or something which is even cheaper than the dollarstore (they have 24 packs for $1)

     

    I am sure some of you have read in the key hard holder thread but Walmart also has the stretch key rings for $1.97 for a package of 6! This is probably the best price I have seen.  I was going to buy them online but I think it makes sense to save the shipping.  They come with 2 hot pink, 2 navy, 1 green and 1 brownish grey colour.  I would love to just get navy and green ones but that's probably not possible.  If some was is interested in the other colours let me know and we could go together on it!  They also have retractable badge holders as well as the badge holders all very reasonably priced.  I know this was one of the things I expected I would have to get online so I was excited when Janine posted about it in the other thread!!!

     

    I think that is all I had to share today!!

      They are in the section near the post it notes at my walmart, there are name tag holders etc. around them.  I think I would have missed them had I not been looking for them!  Here is a picture Janine (Jbean) took that was a HUGE help for me!!!!!!

                Tell me about it Tori. I am so frustrated with shopping here. I don't know why we are so far behind in shopping here. I found such great beach totes on Amazon, but shipping was $70.00 I can't justify spending that much on shipping costs.

                 

                I finally went to the dollar store today (YaY for me) and found first aid kits for a $1.25. Here is the pic: IMG_0166.JPG

                I don't know what the quality is like, but the price is quite nice :)

                    My FI is in the states till Friday, i can barely wait for him to come back so he can go and look at them. The price is so amazing :), the walmart ones are close to $4.00. If he is ok with them I am buying these :)
