Yes!!! It's not called Dollartree yet, it's still Dollarama, but when I bought my cups there I noticed that the bags said dollartree! It's by the huge supercenter walmart, over by the petsmart and bulkbarn. They had lots of great stuff there :)

I think normally they are like $25-$30 for the pack so it's a decent deal if you have coupons.

I was not able to find any cheaper but if you check out ebay they might have good deals. I bought tiny little ones to attach to my place cards and they were super cheap for 100 and shipping wasn't too bad. (they are all really small though- 1inch or less)


What seller did you use on ebay for the smaller ones? They definitely don't have to be big! Yeah I never thought of using the ones attached to garlands. Good call!

It's avon care deeply aloe gel 150ml tube I think I paid $35 for 20 tubes and shipping was $10! So it worked out to like $2 a tube! The ones that you can get at dollarama for $2 are 106ml so the avon ones are quite a bit larger. I figured since I'm giving them 1 per family/couple/single the bigger ones are better if someone gets really burnt and needs to apply it multiple times a day


I definitely can't find jass123456's aloe tubes :( Are you able to copy and paste the link? Thanks!

    I looked through this sellers store and it doesn't look like she has any available.

    However, they are available on the avon site for a pretty good price! http://shop.avon.ca/..._en/default.asp

      @ Dazeydawl- For your bags, are you putting one of each item in every bag? So for a bag for a couple, are you putting in one tube of Tylenol or two because there are two people? I'm going to do the same thing and give one bag per couple/single. Just not sure if I should be doubling on some things.... kinda sounds like a dumb question but do people really need two things of tylenol or maybe I'm just being cheap.... LOL

        Lol I don't think your being cheap!! For me it depends on what the item is. I did get the travel tubes of Advil for $2 from dollarama that have 10tabs so that will be one per bag, same with Kleenex aloe tums hand sanitizer. I will put 2 lip balms in the bags going to couples same with alot of the moist wipes and insect repellant wipes that will be per person, but most of that stuff came in boxes of like 36 or 48 wipes so ill just do the math and figure it out.

          You're definitely not being cheap - I'm doing the same. Only doubling up on some things. The way I look at these bags is the "OH SH!T - I don't have...." until they can buy some...I'm not supplying them with everything they need. Its just to tie them over until they can get what they need. And maybe they would only need what is in the bag, and no need for more.  At least that's the way I'm looking at it. LOL :)

            Definitely not being cheap!! These bags are so much time/effort!!!! I'm giving those $2 dollarama advil bottles one per couple/family and one to singles (they will probably need it more anyways hahah). They contain 6 advil I think! I got one for each guest of the mugs, lanyard/card and maybe some of the snacks, but honestly don't over do it! :) They will totally appreciate whatever you end up giving!
