OOT Bags...done! With Pictures!!!

Recommended Posts

Hey ladies! I'm finally done with our OOT bags! Yay! Ours aren't too fancy, but that's what I love about them.  Let me know what you think! We still have 6 weeks until the wedding, so I still have time to add stuff if I want :D

 

Bags: Purchased at Michaels in a pack of 15 for $5

Sign on Bag: Coral and Teal cardstock I cut and printed

Brochures: Vistaprint - 25 free, shipping and handling $12

San Diego Tour Book: 25 Free from San Diego Chamber of Commerce

Orbit Gum: Pack of 12 for $8.88

Directions: got directions provided by our coordinator and printed them on 1/2 sheets of presentation paper on my own

Little notebook with matching pen: Got 10 for $1 each at Michael's

Sunblock: Got 10 for $1.97 each at Walmart

Hand Sanitizers: Got 10 for $10 at Bath and Body Works

Motion Sickness Relief: Bottle of 100 tablets for $3.87 at Walmart

Excedrin: Bottle of 300 Tablets at Costco for $9

Baggies for medicine: 175 bags for $3

Baggies for Swedish Fish: 100 bags for $4 at Michaels, Ribbon from Michaels, Made labels myself, Swedish Fish 1.9 lb bag at Target for $4.44

 

And I may add small packages of tissues too. 

 

So rounding up, each bag with goodies included cost about $7.75 for each.  Which I think is pretty darn good!

Love the simple bag idea and it will travel easily!

My ideas for contents are to think of what you usually end up buying from the hotel-room mini-bar & hotel gift-shop (if you ever do). That way, you are saving them some money by already providing them with it. We always end up buying at least one snack, at least one large bottled water and then from the gift shop we usually will buy a couple magazines or something to read and sunscreen, mini liquor bottles aren't a bad idea either...although I don't know if hotels allow that. 

good job on everything!

I found them at Michael's in the jewelry section. They are 2 x 3 inch bags.  If you ask any of the ladies that work there, they will guide you in the right direction :D

I was going to suggest the exact same thing for these baggies.  If you have a Hobby Lobby nearby their jewelry supplies go on sale quite often and usually at half price!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
