    Ummm...Shahlo, if your FI is in the states...get him to go into Target or Walmart, they have the Johnson & Johnson kits. I'm pretty sure I paid 99 cents/each.

          I told him the same thing, so he is going to try and sneak away from his meeting and do some shopping for me :). Hopefully, he'll be able to. Ah, so jealous of brides in the states they have it so easy there when it comes to shopping

                hahaa!! I was so jealous of the US brides, that I planned a weekend shopping trip in Buffalo. They manage to score all kinds of coupons and stuff, I saw that some of them bought them 2 for 1!! I'll be doing another cross border shopping trip before the end of August though, it's definitely worth it.

                  I do Buffalo shopping trips too!!!! I am hoping to go the end of this month, just waiting to get a better idea of numbers! Our TA has been away since we booked our trip... ahem not impressed... so no one has been able to book their trips.  My FMIL called FI yesterday saying we need to figure this out.  She is back now but needless to say FI is not impressed at all!!! Oh well, there has to be some drama right?! We have until end of august to get deposits down... I just hope people start booking soon!!!!

                    Saw these at the dollar store too. The quality isn`t bad it does what it`s suppose to do so I think I might buy them eventually

                    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 :)

                      The nice thing about the first aid kits from Dollarama is they always have them!! It's not seasonal or anything so it is 1 thing you do not have to get it when you see!!!!
