    Hey Everyone,

    Just wanted to give you all a heads up at some awesome buys for OOT bag supplies.

    We went to the Christmas Tree Shops (owned by same company as Bed Bath and Beyond) and got most of our things for our bags and only spent $69.00. I got hand sanitizer for $0.45 each, Chapstick for 3/$1.00, Aloe for $1 each, Shout Wipes 4/$1.00, first aid kits in plastic box for $1 each, and tissues 10/$2.00. We bought our bags and mugs off ebay and the bags were about $2 each and the mugs were less than $1/mug. So far I spent about $7.50 per bag and have tons of stuff in it. If you don't have a Christmas tree shop near you, try bed bath and beyond because they have similar section.


    I was thinking of buying small photo albums with palm trees on them from AC Moore for $1 each and maybe doing T-Shirts for everyone but I'm not sure yet. My budget was about $10-15 per bag so I have the room but I'm not sure if my guests would use them.

    Good luck shopping!

        WOW good deals!! I'm going to have to do a search on that store to see if there is one near my area.

        Would you happen to have the name of the ebay seller that you purchased your mugs from?
