    Has anyone here made pre travel packets. I'm trying to find an envelope or folder that is smaller that holds only the size of a brochure??? I don't want to send a full folder out.

    A10?

          I'm wondering if I can get a lot of these items in Cabo at Costco/Walmart, etc?

           

          Any advice would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks!

          we brought 2 suitcases from Portland, Maine to Mexico..and unfortunately for my husband, his daughter and mother (because you fill out the customs sheet on the plane 1 per family and we weren't married yet) he had the "red light" and if you get the red light you get your luggage searched.  So his family had 3 checked luggage and 2 carry-on's well 2 of the checked luggage was gifts.  The customs agent was pretty cool though and asked if he had receipts for the items he explained to them that he was getting married and didn't think about bringing receipts, he asked how much we spent on all the items and my husband told them around 300 no more the 350 (but we all know it's more than that especially if you've started buying the gifts) they continued to check the luggage and when they got to his mother's he started cracking jokes to his mom so the customs agent could hear about how he was touching her bra and underwear.  The customs agent tried not to smile quickly closed the suitcase and told my husband to bring receipts next time. 

           

          But from what I hear they are really strict about people brining in stuff from the US only because they think that people are going to sell it. But if you legit have things with personalized labels and such that shows it is for a wedding it seemed like they were pretty cool...well at least this guy was.

           

          We bought all our stuff online and the dollar tree believe it or not..better deals.
