    FYI - for those still looking for advil 10cts as I know I havent seen them at Dollarama in awhile now, The Bargain Shop had them by the cash when I was there today for $2.69, so a little more than the $2 at dollarama but probably cheaper than you would pay for shipping etc.

      I recently did a trip to the US and they definitely have them in the cleaning supply aisle at Staples. Didn't see them in Canada though.

        Hey Guys...

        so i was at the dollar store ( Dollerama) tonight,looking for ribbon.. and OMG! they have these "aqua Bottles" that are collapsable water pouched basically.... they have built in straws.. and they are like a giant version of those pouch looking juice boxes? hard to explain so i am hoping you guys will get my description. anyway... they look awesome!! and would be perfect for the OOT bags because they fold into like nothing, and would be great for peope to fill and put in their bags for excursions or just for needing hydration when they are out and about... and when they are empty they collapse flat.. they come in Green and blue. and they are in the same section as the famous first aid kits!!!! and only 1$!!!!!!!!!!. I was going to take a picture but i had left my iphone at home hahaha...  i am still debating on how i can sneak em in my bags with the FI not noticing...  hahah if i make it to the dollar store soon i will snag a picture of them and post it for you guys.. but i thought it was a neat idea!

              Thanks for the Staples tip in the US having the little advil and stuff, I will check that out labor day weekend when we go down to Maine :)

               

              Hmm... not sure if this is all over Canada but here the Superstore has like a.. warehouse thingy here like.. it's called Atlantic Cash & Carry but it's basically like a mini costco of superstore stuff? You can get stuff in bulk or just buy one and you don't need a membership. I went there today because we needed bulk items for a dinner we are doing tomorrow and it's like the last place I thought I would look for OOT stuff but they sell like boxes of the Tylenol regular strength and extra strength 10ct tubes ($1.89), that's the individual price but I saw a case out there too so I'm sure it would be cheaper if you bought the whole case (I dunno how many were in there) they also sell tubes of Motrin and tubes of Reactin.. I forgot to check the prices of those because I was looking for Advil.. I also bought a box of Tums there, 18 inidividal rolls inside the pack for like ten bucks. There was a couple of other things there that I already have.. so if you have this in your area or know what I'm talking about.. lol.. put it on your list of places to check out anyway.

                Thanks for the heads up Annie!  If I don't find anything in the States this weekend, I'll be definetly heading out to Cash & Carry!

                 

                Luvmoo - I know exactly what you are talking about.  My work gave them out to everyone recently.  They would be perfect for excursions...I'll have to keep that in mind!

You're awesome!!  I love deals!!!  I can already feel that I totally won't be able to stop or help myself. LOL.

                      Are you doing some sort of Mug?  let that prevent you from the colapsable bottles as they just wont get used as much down there( though very cool)
