Meggers....Yep, WalMart!!  I'm on the Westcoast but I picked mine up from walmart for $1.00 each.  Not too shabby!!!

So as far as bringing centerpieces down.....I am VERY concerned with my luggage allownace and with the OOT bags and the few decorations that I have, I am starting to cut into my luggage allowance....should I jsut splurge for the extra bag???  We are allowed 44 lbs(20kg)  total!!  It can be in 2 bags but your total weight allowance is 44 lbs.  SOOOO for the extra it's $12 per kg for each bag each way!!  So I am thinking I am going to need the extra bag arghhhhh I hate haveing to do that when we could slpit it up but as far as just being orgainized it might be better to jsut paay the extra.....although...that's $240 for a 44 lbs bag each way!

 

Just wanna put this out there....BAGGAGE ALLOWANCES WITH AIR TRANSAT/NOLITOURS SUCK!!!

I hear you Bailey! That's why I had a plan, lol. My cousin and I are going down 2 days early before everyone else so I had to schedule a flight for us to take down there, but we come back with the group. So...I searched until I found an airline with a reasonable ticket that allowed at least one free bag. Yay- I ended up getting a one-way ticket to Jamaica for $175 and am allowed 2 bags (50lbs each) and a free carry-on and personal item! My cousin says she only needs 1 bag, so I now have 3 free bags and a free carry-on. My mom is part of my group that is staying for 3 nights and they get 2 free bags on American Airline, 50 lbs each- so I'm taking one of hers too! I now have 4 free bags & a carry-on! I'm bringing stuff down in those big totes that I plan to just leave there.

Bailey~ I am flying Transat also and I know there are some upgrade options that might help!! You can do a semi upgrade for about $79 round trip that allows more baggage (10K). It also includes some drinks and things! Here is the link http://www.airtransat.ca/en/info/option-plus.aspx?ExitID=62&ContentType=voyageur

 

You can also upgrade to Club Class, which gives you 88lbs check in and 22lb carry on! Also unlimited drinks, extra food etc. This is the one we're doing.


They have something new called "Kilo Flex"too that if you let them know in advance how much extra you're brining it's cheaper! (I think $8 each way)

 

I think upgrading your class is the way to go that way you get a lot more for your money than just the extra baggage, and it's cheaper!!

I was missing in action for a bit and missed waaay tooo much!!!

 

Well I guess I'll jump into the latest topic aloe..... believe it or not I found some aloe at our grocery store, I had no luck with target or walmart, so I would try your grocery stores they have a fairly small travel section but thats where I ended up spotting some!
