I hit up my local Walmart a few times a week - I always need something.  Well I have been obsessing over OOT Bags and looking at numerous websites and forums on here....

 

Well, last week I was walking through their Accessories Department where they keep their Tote Bags & Purses & I found these tote bags!  They were only $.88 a piece!!!!!!  They only had 4 at the store I was in, but then I went on a "BAG HUNT" with my BFF - calling local stores & sending friends to them.  We now have a total of 46 bags!  I only needed potentially 40, but figured the extras would be great for groceries!

 

They are perfect for our wedding since our colors are Navy and Emerald Green and we are doing a nautical theme with starfish, anchors, etc.

 

I had already bought acrylic tumblers with straws from the Christmas Tree Shop last month for $2.99 a piece & they too are blue with green and other fun colorful anchors/nautical steering wheels/palm trees, etc.  I have also been designing/using a VistaPrint anchor template on a lot of their items...so these bags were it!  I think it was fate since I had found a lucky penny that day in another aisle at Walmart and then proceeded to this department where I found the bags!

 

Here is a pic...I will post the other goodies I have so far (from VistaPrint) as well as the tumblers, etc to go inside it very soon...SO EXCITED!

 

They are a non-woven 80 polypropylene recyclable bag.

            So cute, We are getting married on a cruise ship and one of our colors is navy blue haha. I ended up making tote bags with anchors and the ships name on vistaprint for FREE yeaaaa just paid for shipping for each one. But I am also obsessed with the anchor motif on vistaprint for everything I make on there haha. Not to be a stalker or anything but I just noticed you are from Clifton Park my fiance and I moved to Charleston from Delmar, NY and of course our first winter here and there wasnt even that much snow to get away from this year!! hhehe 

             

            Happy Planning!

            No luck!  We just don't have as cool stuff as you American brides have in your Walmarts.  I'm happy for you though elissae! :)
