        I've been to a few all inclusive resorts and Bubba Kegs definitely get my vote! My FI and I took them on our last trip to Cuba and we used them the entire trip! If you are tanning on the beach, the last thing you want to be doing is getting up every 10 minutes to get a cold drink! We took the larger ones and we actually had people offering us things in exchange for them throughout the week! hahaha! Now that we are home we still use them....especially if we are camping or at a friends cottage.

         

        If I recall, I think the regular price is around $10 at CT so if you get them on sale they can be as little as $4-$5. This was our main purchase for our OOT bags so didn't think that was too unreasonable.

         

        As for packing them I'm still trying to figure that out....but I read that you can check a box instead of a suitcase as long as it meets the baggage dimensions. This way you only have to pay  extra baggage fees one way b/c you can just leave the empty box there.

         

        As for Dollarama they have some more great finds now in stock!!! The other day I saw tubes of sunscreen SPF 30 & 60 for $2. They also have Self Laminating Sheets in the back to school section (8 in a pkg. for $1). I am going to be using these to make personalized luggage tags; I ordered premium business cards for free from Vistaprint that I will fill out with my guests info, seal them in the self-laminating sheets, hole punch the top, and use ribbon in my wedding colours so ppl can attach to their suitcases. I figured this was the cheapest way to do luggage tags (until I saw the ones on here 4/$1! haha).

         

        Does anyone know what stores in the US carry the Shout wipes or bug repellent wipes? I'm assuming WalMart or Target....but my Mom is going to go down so don't want to send her on a wild goose chase! :)

          Shout wipes are for sure at Target, they are in the "travel section" near cosmetics in the 3 packs or you can get boxes of 12 usually on an end cap, in the detergent and laundry aisles.  I can't recall if I saw them at walmart but for some reason I don't think I did!  Works out to the same price whether you do the 3 or 12 pack (I was calculating on my phone in the middle of the store lol) so whatever she finds let her know!  I totally forgot to look for the bug repellent wipes so I will be hunting for those my next trip.  Our superstore had the kids ones so they are available in Canada but I will be looking for them Friday when I go over the border!

            So I know this isn't OOT related....but you ladies are so great at giving advice I couldn't resist:

            What did you put in your invitations instead of traditional inserts?

             

            I was thinking just RSVP and Reception info as I already gave out Accommodation info with the Save the Dates. Thoughts?

                Not sure what you mean about "traditional inserts"  check out my thread with my invites.

                 

                Also, to keep the Canadian OOT thread OOT specific we created a "Canadian Brides" thread as we all rely on one another so much! Be sure to join us over there!!!!

                  You don't think travel mugs would be used more?? I found some nice red and teal metallic ones at Canadian Tire for 5$ on sale....I was thinking of just getting some for our wedding party but there is only 13-15 people going...Thoughts? Tumblers or Mugs? For everyone or w. party?

                  Thanks!~

                      Hi girls, the backs are all black or all white, there's nothing on them. They were not dollarama, I think it might have been called a dollar giant but am not certain, will get back to you :) I found them in Toronto. They also had them in 4/1 in all black. quote name="torilynnsmith" url="/forum/thread/38128/canadian-oot-bag-info-where-to-shop/1780#post_1654896"]


                      These are awesome!!!! Great find!!! Can you post a picture of the reverse side or is it the same?!



                       


                      Shout wipes are not available in Canada as far as I know.... I find they are a little pricey on ebay and it isnt even so much the price but the shipping charge basically doubles the cost.... If you have Chance to cross the border you can get them at Target or Walmart for about $3 a box I believe (12 count).  The tums rolls can be found at Walmart for sure, not sure about costco, they may not have the roles may only have the larger containers.



                       


                      Glad we could be a help to you!  I would be happy to send you the bag topper template for my Wedding Week Survival Kit, just PM your email address.... I haven't been emailing many templates anymore but because Nova Scotia holds a special place in my heart I will for you!!!
