    OK after a couple weeks of hard work and a lot of help from my amazing mom and bridesmaids we have finally finished our OOT bags. Thank you to everyone who has posted ideas, photos and suggestions! I could not have done this without you! OK so here is the breakdown.


    I hope you all like them! And if you have any questions Please feel free to ask!


    Bags: I was able to get these for FREE from my TA because the resort was giving them as promotional items. I was a little nervous when she was telling me about these bags but they turned out to be really nice. They do have the resort logo on the other side but it was not a big deal to me...especially since I am saving a ton of money! I also designed a patch that my mom and I ironed onto the bags the iron on paper totaled around $15.00 and then we bought a t-shirt material that was $10.00




    Manicure Kits -$.50 each at Walmart on sale after x-mas

    Men's Manicure Kits -$.50 each at Walmart on sale after x-mas

    Travel Size Brush - $.50 each at Walmart on sale after x-mas

    Change purse- $.50 each at Walmart on sale after x-mas

    Bath Salts - $.50 for a pack of 4

    Lanyards - $6.00 per pack of 10 at OfficeMax

    Badge/ID holders - $5.00 per pack of 10 at OfficeMax

    Hand Sanitizers - $.38 each at Bath and Body Works on sale

    Hand Sanitizer holders - $.17 each on clearance at Bath and Body Works

    Razors - I just went to Target and got a couple packs of the cheapest disposable for both men and women

    Silly Straws - $2.00 per pack of 10 at Hobby Lobby

    Gum - $2.00 for a pack of 3 on clearance at Target

    Journals - $.50 each at Michael's - they had a bunch of designs available

    Ear Plugs - $3.00 for a box of 10 Pairs at King Soopers

    Lolly Pop's - I found a huge bag of these on clearance for $3.00 so I put 10 in each bag

    Pens - $7.00 for a pack of 20 at Sams's Club

    Aloe - $1.00 each at Target

    Wisps - $5.00 for a pack of 16

    Chewy Bar snack size - 48 in a bucket on sale for $10 at Target

    Aspirin - Pack of 48 individually wrapped from OfficeMax

    Sunscreen -$1.00 each at Target

    Lotion -$.68 each at Bath and Body Works

    Emergen-c - a package of 90 for $19.49 at Sam's Club

    Alkaseltzer - Pack of 48 individually wrapped at Sam's Club ( I cannot find my receipt for this! sorry!)

    Activity Books - I made them on my computer and I had these printed and bound at OfficeMax and would NOT recommend it. They did not give us a price quote and with the bindings they ended being $12 each! We definitely learned our lesson with that one. Looking back it would have been just as nice to print and bind them at home.

            Those bags are stuffed full! I am debating on whether to do OOT bags or not, they seem like such a great idea, but may add up quickly!

                  Kelly -- yes they do add up! I would definitely recommend waiting until the end of the season or after x-mas for the sales. I accumulated everything over time as well so it didn't seem like it was that much but after adding it all up it was around $850 total for everything!
