    I know, hey?? We bought all our first aid kits and bottles of hand sanitizer this weekend there, and we found most things to not be a dollar, lol! Kinda annoying...

      So excited about this thread! I haven't read a whole lot, I mostly just skipped to the last 10 pages and they are filled with great ideas. I am totally ordering the mugs from Factory 21 on EBAY. They are gorgeous!!


      I ordered 2-50 packs of 2 pill tylenol from Ebay today (33.00 with shipping). I am still on the hunt for totes. I am also looking for the burlap/tan coloured totes. Might have to wait until the end of next summer, but hey, my wedding isn't until the end of next November. :)


      I'll have to check out Dollarama for all the great deals you ladies are posting. Also, we just got a dollar tree here so I am definitely going to check them out!



      I am starting now so the pain of spending so much doesn't come all at once. Buy things slowly. I am worried about packing it all in a suitcase.


      Anyways, just wanted to say thanks! If I come across any deals I will be sure to post them!

        I need to start shopping too, but I can't seem to get a more exact number of how many people are coming.  Why can't people answer for heaven's sake!  I guess after x-mas I can start harassing people lol!

              To Jreist:


              Wow! Love all the goodies that you've compiled - your guests are going to love you!


              Question: I looked into the travel mugs and the price is great from Factory 21. How much did you have to pay in taxes and duties when they were delivered?

                How are you guys planning how many you're bringing?  What I mean is I have as of now 12 people who actually put on a deposit.  I think I'm going to have about 30 people but I have a feeling my numbers won't be final until may or even june while I'm getting married in August.  Thing is, I have someone who spends their winter in Florida but they come back in March and I would've like to get some US stuff shipped to her to save on duties and shipping.  So what should I do?? Order for 35? 40?  It's probably my pregnant brain but I'm at a loss!

                  Hello ladies!


                  So I thought I would share some of my OOT finds. I went out today, hit up three different stores and the best finds were at LIQUIDATION WORLD.


                  I found Calgon "morning glory" hand cream---------- .49 cents a bottle





                  These cute lip glosses (also at LW) they come in flavours like cotton candy, cherry, red velvet cake, french vanilla frosting etc... they were in a package of 7 for ------------$5.00. I bought them only for the ladies



                  Then I found after sun "aloe" for --------- $1.00 each




                  Then I found these cute 30 pack of cleansing wipes for face, hands, body for --------- $1.00 each




                  I also went on the hunt for the burlap jute bags at Dollarama, I managed to find 6 in a crazy trip around the city looking at 5 different Dollarama's. I figure they are likely out of season so I'll have to take a look closer to summer.


                  That's it for now!
