So, I had a pretty successful day of shopping...did great with coupons and found a few other wedding-related items I thought I would share.

 

Not planning on luggage tags, but found these cute bright initial tags at Homesense for $2.99 for a couple of key players in the wedding:

Found these super-size bulletin boards at Homesense ($39.99)...they've just come out in the last 24 hours (it's kinda scary that I know that!).  Plan to use them at the ATR for posting table seating arrangements or displaying some of our favourite photos.  I've propped them up against the door so you can see how large they are.  Not sure which colour I'm keeping yet:

Couponing...so much fun!  Free box of granola bars (coupon was on the back of a cereal box), free box of dishwasher tabs (mail-in rebate) and here's the story with the Aveeno.  London Drugs had the body wash on sale this weekend for $5.99.  In their larger "savings flyer", they had an offer of, "buy an aveeno product, get a free lip therapy product".  London Drugs has a highly competitive coupon policy, and is one of the few places in Canada that allows you to "stack" coupons (meaning, if you have three different coupons with three different UPC codes, they will accept them all)!  So, I had three DIFFERENT coupons where when you buy 2 aveeno items, you save $3.  Which means, I buy 2 aveeno products (2 X 5.99 = 11.98) and they accepted $9 (3 coupons X $3 off) worth of coupons for those two items.  So, long story short, for $1.49 I got one bottle of Aveeno body wash AND a free lip balm.  They were all out of balms, so they gave me a raincheck.  I had enough coupons to buy 16 bottles of body wash and get 16 balms for free.

Now, my next mission is to get the Dollaramas on board here with couponing...they told me that they will be accepting them soon, but couldn't tell me when.  I have 8 coupons for $1 off Hawaiian Tropic products, which means I could be getting those bottles of HT sunscreen they've had for quite some time for $1!

Apparently many of the Dollaramas out east have been accepting coupons for a while...the exception is the coupons that you print off online...I don't think they take those.  Although I did read a story of a woman who used the $3 online coupon for Polysporin to Go, and used them at Dollarama for the $2 item, and they allowed her to apply the overage (difference of $1 in her favour) to the rest of her purchase.  OMG...that would be sweet.

Oh gee, I totally forgot about this break-thru as well.  I have been looking for CLEAR plastic scoops, tongs and pinchers to use at our AHR for the candy bar.  The clear scoops have eluded me for MONTHS...I have looked at dollar stores, department stores, kitchen wholesale stores, at home and during my trips to the states.  I walked into Peppers (I think they're all over Canada) and found them...four sizes with the largest being $2.99.  I nearly kissed the girl behind the till...she said "yeah, I've heard they're hard to find".

I originally wanted to doo white oakleys for the boys TOO!!!!!!  How much did they end up costing you?  FI was not keen on the idea....

 

We have decided to buy their outfits and "oomf" up their OOTs but I would still like to do some sort of gift!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
