    Hi, Ladies!  I just wanted to share my findings for great OOT bag stuff.

     

    1308244512684.jpg  Cute, right?  Only $0.50 each and they come in yellow, blue, green, pink, purple and orange. But they are pretty thin and I had to rummage through all of them just to find 15 bags without tears, stitching mistakes, and bamboo sticks poking out or mangled.  Still it was worth it and only took me 7-10 minutes.

     

     

    1308605531898.jpg For $1, with lots of color options.1308605539811.jpg

    These bags are on the thin side but certainly strong enough to withstand a week-long vacation, and I would just buy a few extra in case of any accidents

     

     

    We also got spf 30 chapstick at $0.50, wet wipes at $0.33, shower poof at $.50, small pack of tissues at $0.13, hand sanitizer at $0.33, and a flashlight at $0.64.  We also got pool toys, leis, glow toys, bubble wands, sunglasses, water floats and more for the kids, all at $1 each.

     

    Just a ton of great stuff for cheap, but most are not name brand so if you care about that stuff then you should look elsewhere.  Also, look at different Dollar Tree's because they all stock different items.

      I too bought a bunch of my "first-aid"/personal items at Dollartree!  huge money saver.  I also purchased the multipacks of razors cuz who hasnt gone on vaca and forgot their razor?  They have a multi-pack with multi-colors which was fun for the girls.  And larger tubes of spf30 suntan lotion for only $1 each.

      I have found that Staples was sucessful for me for the large box of individually packaged Tylenol and hand wipes.

          Great idea Beaches, just proceed with caution. I took those razors last time I went to Bahamas because the colors were "soooo cute" I shaved my legs and bikini area and was cursing out those cute cheap razors for two days! I didn't know cheap razors were so bad because I usually get the pretty pastel Bic ones from walmart...Never again!

                    i agree...sometimes the cheap razors look so cute, but can really do a bad number on your skin!  not worth it!
