      After a trip out to Costco this morning, we were ready to do a quick trial of our snack packs which will be given to our guests at the resort (along with their welcome brochure, key card holder, travel candle and personalized postcards from Vistaprint).  This is what is going into a pack for the families with children...the other kits will not include the push pops/mini m&ms.


      So, here's the breakdown:


      Lindt 3 pack on clearance at Safeway this week for .85

      Dove family-size chocolate bars on clearance at Safeway this week for $1

      Push Pops, Mini M&Ms, Jolly Ranchers were from Dollarama (2/$1 or $1)

      Blue Diamond tin of almonds on sale at Wal-Mart for $2

      Packages of nuts and box of Caramilk bars (FI's favourite treat) from Costco 

      Mints and gum from Great Canadian Wholesale Club


      There is certainly no shortage of food at our all-inclusive, but we thought since everyone has a minifridge with water, beer and soft drinks refilled daily, it would be nice to have some treats for late at night.




      Just like the wedding survival kits, we had the oversize postcards printed thru Vistaprint, clipped the corners, used a bone folder (see foreground) to score the card to get a nice clean fold...and staple!  We won't be assembling the kits until the afternoon we arrive in Mexico to try to protect the chocolate from melting and to have the kits look as nice as possible when they are delivered.




      Last projects with two weeks to go...wait for the final Vistaprint order and assemble key card holders.

              Here's our last official project...the key card and tip money holders.  Cards are double-sided business cards from Vistaprint with some helpful Spanish words/phrases on the back side.  The plastic card holders were ordered from ebay and the bright pink and chocolate brown stretchy bracelets came from Wal-Mart.




              Now just to finish the packing...tomorrow is my last day of work and we're leaving in 4 more sleeps! : )

                  Wow your OOT bags, baskets, and goody bags are amazing!!  Koodo's to you for putting so much effort into them.  I've been trying to come up with ideas for our OOT bags/favours but don't think I can fit anything this elaborate into my budget, but you do have some awesome ideas that I may have to snag :)

                  Hope you have a wonderful wedding!!
