Wow, the posts I come back to after a long weekend AWAY!!!!!! Sorry Ladies, this is going to be a long one!!!!
Thanks luvmoo, I think I will just hold off until we cross the boarder again (I am sorry you cant get across but glad you found the ebay deal) as they are a little cheaper and since we are going anyways I should practise my patience!!!

I am not going over the boarder at all before the wedding so this was my only option if i wanted them in the bags..
Also.. i went to the dollarstore ( i heart dollarama lol) as i was looking for more advil.. of course they did not have any, BUT!!!! they had mentos.. on for 2 for 1$, and they don't expire until 2013! soo i bought 2 cases of mentos and i will put one pack of mentos in each bag.. I thought that was a nice find
*sigh still on the search for my last 15 bottles of advil hahaha..
Great finds Natalie!!!!!! The tide hanging pockets are cool!! We have a rexall here but I have never been in.... off there this afternoon!!

I also found these at Rexall for .99...Just in case I don't have enough of the ones I bought at Michaels....not as cute and colorful but will do for last minute bookers:)
So, I took a bunch of pictures this morning because I'm going to pack everything up that we have so far and move it to the basement for storage. My FI and I are going to Europe for the month of September, and I need to switch focus from wedding stuff to trip stuff (as promised!). All of our written/printed materials will be winter projects I think...but I'm just glad I started shopping early to catch "warm weather stuff" while it's in season/on clearance.
These little photo albums were $2.99 at Superstore and are covered in woven straw. We'll keep the plastic covers on until they go into the bags, but you get the idea. You can put a little photo in the front cover...which we'll do...and use the book for our welcome letter, maps, schedules, photo sharing info, etc.
More adult OOT bag stuff...
The Advil nighttime were pretty much free (paid taxes only) from couponing, the advil and tylenol were from Dollarama, the waterproof bandaids were on sale at Superstore for $2.49 a box and will be divided up...the two pack of Purell (for my MIL 'cause she doesn't like strong scents) was $1.50 at Superstore, the asprin was around $1.80 at Superstore and the antiseptic wipes/bug bite wipes were free from my family doc.
Everything looks awesome! I want those passport covers, I went to three different Michael's' looking for those lil sewing kits and did not see the passport covers at all. Eek!
I have all my aloe from Avon and all my chapstick, and I have been working on putting labels on stuff like the dollarama first aid kits - what sort of label have you guys been using for your chapstick? When I print on a regular label its like.. I dunno.. too matte for my liking? I want something shiny but I don't want a clear label - does this exist? lol
Check out ebay, amazon and other online sites like OT and such. They have passport covers too!!!
Also the dollar store had them for $1, I think I may have posted it awhile back but they are in the section with the headphones, CDs etc!

Are you guys looking to get one for each guest? I don't think any of those colors were very manly.. so maybe only the women would want them.. hum.. oh well. No passport covers for me this time around. Too bad you can't order from their website.
I saw someone post the cheapest place they found the Tide sink packets was at Shoppers drug mart - how much were they there?
I never thoguht of emergen-C but think I may add it to our bags 1 gatorade 1 emergen-c each person!

I was orginally thinking of ordering some individual gatorade powders from ebay but this is a better deal! They were 15.99 for 30 packets. They were in the exercise section.
I would LOVE to get all your couponing tips!!!! Maybe you should start a MJKH couponing thread and let us know so we can follow you in there!!!!!!

Every time I go to use a coupon somewhere I hold my breath...'cause it just all depends on who is ringing you in that day! Websaver.ca and gocoupons.ca are good resources...and with the Imodium coupon, I just started searching online, only to find that the company had one on its' website for $2. The Puffs coupons were in that extra flyer that come with our paper on a fairly regular basis. As I see relevant coupons and discounts (such as those for Old Navy, etc), I'll try to link them into this thread if people are interested...?
WOW!!!!! Amazing deal, I wont be near a la vie en rose until next weekend but I hope they still have them!!!!!!

I bought Wet Bikini Bags for my wedding party off of AVON a while ago but figured I should probably get some more for my guests however they were no longer available. But low and behold I am shopping at LaVie en Rose and what do I find? Blue and white wet bikini bags for only $1.00 Each!!!!! They are super cute and such a nice material - nothing is going to leak from these little guys. I bought twenty of them and they had a whole lot more in boxes in the back. They said they were clearing them out - so if you need them - call first and go and get them bc they are super cute and such a great, light wieght gift to put in the OOT bags.. I bought them when I was in Windsor, but I am assuming any LaVie en Rose will have them??
Hope this helps!!
