    Yep, you can do them all in one day!  I did like 16 within a 1/2 hour lol.  I had perfected the method and got tired of it by the end, but I got it done.  Once you do the first order, you just go back into your portfolio and re-add them to your cart and do it all over again.  (hint -- you CAN actually skip all of that extra stuff (their effort to sell other stuff to you) by adding it to your cart and then clicking back to your homepage.  They ended up just delivering all 16 orders together at one time anyway.

    Can you do this all in one day for example 10 orders of 1 t-shirt, 1 tote, 1 postit, 1 pen? Or whatever item is 'free' that day. So when it's delivered you get 10 boxes with one of each item in it. Is that how it works?

            So this is a stupid question but what bag did you use for the Oh Shit Kits, or where did you get them?  I like the presentation and wondering how I can duplicate.  I have seen lots of BDW brides do this and have always wondered how.

              Not stupid!!  It is actually just a ziplock bag!!  I can't remember what size I purchased -- maybe the quart size?  But it ended up being perfect!

                Your bags turned out GREAT!  You've motivated me to start paying more attention to my local ads etc. for coupons!!!!  I love that show by the way "extreme couponing"! haha! 

                Have you decided when you'll give the bags yet?  I think the welcome party is a great idea!!

                  Thanks!!  I try as much as I can to get great deals.  Monday I found a $5 off coupon for Physicians Formula makeup, printed 3, and got concealer, eye liner and eye shadow for a total of $1.70!  My friend that got me started introduced it to me right as all of those little things were matching up, so it was a perfect way to get me excited about starting!

                   

                  I haven't decided about when to give the bags yet :oP  Part of me thinks it would be nice to give them as people arrive, so that they will get more use out of them, but part of me also things it would be nice to wait just 1 day and have a nice present for them when they leave the party.  Thanks for your input on it though, I think the welcome party would be nice too.  I guess I'm just torn because I also think it would nice for them to be able to use everything starting on the first day?  Ahh!! haha

                    Thank you!!!  It certainly beats buying bags when I already have them at home.
