      hello!!! im from canada and also making about 20 bags! there is a thread on here called something like canadian oot bags where to shop

       

      Ive found alot from dollarama.... advil $2.00 (if you dont want to spend that much try asking around if you know any nurses for fee sample packs) kleenex 10 packs for $2.00, moist wipes 24 for $1, binaca 3 pack for $2, i got my bags from ingreetings.com.... they are natural canvas totes and for 21 of them with shipping it was about $43 so about $2 a bag. Ebay will be your best friend!!! look for items shipping from hong kong as usually its free shipping. If your close to the border at all you can set up a US shipping address which saves money as well. For personalized items theres 4imprint.ca and many places to ship to canada but yes higher shipping rates.

        Hello! I'm in the early process of all my planning, but I've also started on my OOT bags. I'm also making about 20 bags! So far, my best find was my tumblers from Dollarama. Clear double walled platic with screw top lid and the straw that doesn't fall out.... $2 ea. My mom bought the exact same cup from a Shoppers for $8. It might be only $6, but I'm giving everyone (2 cups per bag) a cup. It adds up so fast!

         

        I'm still working on my logo, but I will be getting vinyl stickers to put on the cups.

         

        My MIL works in a medical office, so I'm relying on her to get my tylenol samples and tums.

         

        I also bought some mini first-aid kits from Dollarama for $1.25 and Sudoku & Crossword books from Doller Tree for $1.25.

         

        Haven't figured out where to get my canvas totes yet. :S

           We purchased our canvas totes from cheaptotes.com

           

          They were really super cheap but yet decent quality.  The shipping was a bit expensive, but I was okay with paying it because the totes were so cheap.

                  Thanks for sharing ladies, I've been looing out for the tote bags and Canada's selection is so much smaller. I'm thinking maybeb a shopping trip to the US is called for?! Hehehe

                    I don't know what their prices are for online shopping, but I love going to this store.
