    I just bought 50 mugs at Dollar Giant/Dollar Tree (similar to the attached photo). They are mugs with plastic handles and you can add your own paper inserts. Only $1.25 each and then we are going to make some fun labels that go with our theme as well as a party picture of me and my groom. They might not work as great thermal mugs, but they are a great price!  We were originally going to order bubba mugs but as I spoke to a lot of my guests it didn't really sound like a lot of them were actually interested in using mugs.  So why spend all that money on them just for a few people that would like them.

        Just FYI for everyone out there poking around the dollar stores, I was at Dollar Tree in Kalispell, Montana this weekend, then came home to Calgary and learned that Dollar Tree has recently bought out Dollar Giant up here. So some of the stuff you hear about at Dollar Tree is now showing up at the Dollar Giant stores in Canada. Apparently they are working on a whole re-branding for these stores.

            May not be affordable, but I just saw these at Shoppers Drug Mart, for $10.00. I think they had a bikini one too. 

             

             

             

            Also, Dollarama's newest canvas bags look like this:

              While I'm at it, I also got a few other things which I know I shared in another post, but may as well share here too. 

               

              Dollarama now sells condoms, 12/$3 [60% off of what they sell for at Shoppers]- I plan on putting them in our survival kits.

               

              I ordered ZigZags on ebay and they came in without any duty or anything from this seller: 

              http://www.ebay.ca/itm/250945318696?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649#ht_739wt_1163

               

              The zigzags, after shipping, came to $20 for 50 packages.

               

              I ordered a bunch of stuff from oriental trading too. 

               

              -our favours: cookie cutters with recipe card

              http://www.orientalt...t=cookie cutter

              [they have sea shell ones too, but my fiance thought it looked like a tree so we didnt go with them, but they are cheaper]-->http://www.orientalt...t=cookie cutter

               

               

              -Heart shaped note pads 24 for $2.80

              http://www.orientalt...=heart note pad

               

               

              -inflatable duck coasters 12 for $5

              -http://www.orientalt...nflatable ducks

               

               

              -Beer Coozies to give out on our excursions 50 for $21

              http://www.orientalt...ave and to hold

               

              For Oriental trading, all of the above and a few other things, totalled $30 shipping which includes all border/duty/brokerage fees.

                  Just found at Walmart: 3-packs of rolls of tums for $1.97. Works out to less than $1 per roll.

                    I saw them at Superstore this past week. I think it was 1.99 for the regular and 1.12 for the tropical/ fruit one. We bought them :) lol. I am not sure if the dollar trees in Canada have them, but when I was in the states I found 4 packs of Trident Gum for $1! They had the regular mint kind and a fruity kind :)
