    Here's the link: TheFinalCost.com - Canadian total shipping fees calculator (brokerage, duty, customs)

    Happy shopping
    Thanks! That is EXACTLY what I was looking for. Wonder how accurate it is.... hmmm?

        Hey Suzy

        I just did this for the mugs I bought on discountmugs and they were about $25 short on the final price (customs fees were about $50!)....good tool for a rough estimate though!

            Awe thanks, I would LOVE to take credit but it was NOT my idea!! lol
            I do apologize but I completely forget which B2B I stole it from - but it was someone on here, she got the window decals from VistaPrint and I totally stole the idea but found labels online! Saved me a bunch though! and I was able to personalize each one!!

              Actually I didn't post the website, but I can tell you what I actually paid...
              my order was $111 USD including shipping for 32 blank mugs, ($24 of that was shipping) then at my door I paid $35 CAD to UPS, your brokerage charges all depend on how much your order is, and mine was pretty low so I didn't end up paying very much!

                I'm on the hunt for inflatable pillows. Not the travel wrap around the neck ones. Just square or rectangle ones. If anyone sees them at a dollar stoe, walmart, etc please let me know.
                Martha has a good article on turning a hand towel into a pillow case and using an inflatable pillow inside on the beach. Thought this would be excellent in the OOT bags.
                Thanks ladies!

                  After my vacation I decided that the "brush the sand off your feet" paint brush idea was awesome! I always had sand on me and didn't want to get my towel all dirty. So I have decided to include them in my OOt bags. I got 3, 1/2 inch in width and pretty soft ones for $1 at Home hardware. Yeah for home hardware!
