    Hello Ladies!

    I've been inspired by some great OOT bags on here, so I took that into account when doing me own. I'll be having a Destination Wedding in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Apart from the items listed below, I'm also adding sudoku/puzzle book & gum to each. Below is a group picture of the items I'm
    including and how much each cost. BTW, my colors are fuschia, purple, and red. I'm using tote bags in purple, pink, and blue (for the single guys).

    Let me know what you think!

    -reusable purple tote--in background ($1.50 ea) -got them in purple/pink/blue

    -Chapstick ($0.57)

    -flip flops ($1.80 each) using 2 different coupons codes & a sale day

    -travel candle--the last picture w/yellow lid ($1 ea)

    -face/body wipes (1.00)

    -tissues ($0.25 ea) came 4/pack

    -banana boat spf 30 mini ($1.00 ea)

    -Gold bond lotion ($1.00)

    -shout stain remover wipes ($1.00)

    -antibacterial cleaner ($0.50)

    -tylenol ($0.33 ea) --package came 3/100

    -spanish for dummies ($1.00) --only bought 4 of these for guests that need

    -love birds container carton to stick small items in ($1.00 ea)
    -puzzle book ($1.00 ea)

    I just really wanted to thank everyone for coming all the way to Mexico (and using up $$ for flight/hotel and vacation days) just to be part of our special day...and I thought an OOT would be a great way to do so!

    They are not my favors though. They are just a welcome bag.
    For my favors, I wanted to give something that would be fun, reusable, and have roots in Mexico since that is where we'll be.

    For women: handpainted maracas
    For men: lucha libre masks (a huge sport in mexico) and also makes for great photos!

    Thanks for reading!

        Hi! I got the totes from jiffyshirts.com. They have some really cute totes for cheap, and no minimum! The websote was on a thread from another BDW briode on here.

                Thanks a lot for posting. We've been in OOT mode lately and trying to brainstorm all that we want to include. This list was very helpful, especially since you provided prices - definitely a good thing to know!

                  Sure! I got the $1 travel candle from Michaels.
                  Waldbaums for the 50 cents antibacterial gel
                  jiffyshirts.com for the totes
                  Old Navy for the flip flops--on sale for $2.50 and then i used 2 coupon codes ($1.80)
                  dollar tree for the puzzle/ sodoku books
                  Filene's basement for the chapstick (they're going out of busniess in NY and everything is on sale until 3/6)
                  All else was bought at target--in their dollar section--or their travel section.

                    Averages out to about $10 a bag. Not bad...

                      Great finds!! I had no idea Filene's is going out of business here! Is it just Manhattan stores?
