    I am done with my OOT bags. I actually gave them out to everyone last weekend. I wanted them to have them before we left so it would get them excited and also so I wouldn't have to lug them down to Mexico with me!

    Here are some pics and where I got my stuff.

    Oh and sorry the pics are so bad, I'm using my camera phone because my digital is broken.

        We just bought these bags at Walmart for 5/each. We may do an iron on transfer, but it's something I have to look into as these are meshy bags.

                i have actually seenthe 1st one in person at walmart in bellingham wa and they are great! we are going to buy them at the end of the season hopefully on sale since our wedding isnt till nextyear, i think the 1st one is better also because ithas a drink holder and could potentially seat 2 i thik they were 8.99 at walmart, it might be cheaper to buy them there instead of paying for S&H too online

                  After going to wallmart last night and buying the above bags, we started to worry that our "fillers" would look really pathetic in a bag that size. So we went to the dollar tree to see what we could find for fillers. We found tons of filler, but we also found bags!

                  So I'm returning the Walmart bags, and using the dollar tree bags, and now I can spend more filling the bags.

                  Here's what I bought at the Dollar Tree:

                  The bag - $1

                  footballs - $1
                  Click the image to open in full size.

                  Mini bottle of generic tums - $1
                  Click the image to open in full size.

                  Mini Tylenol - $1
                  Click the image to open in full size.

                  After sun lotion - $1
                  Click the image to open in full size.


                  I also have these:
                  Candels $1 from Michaels
                  Click the image to open in full size.

                  Hand make soaps - Peir 1 98 cents each
                  Click the image to open in full size.


                  I am also going to add SPF chapstick, a cup like the following only with our wedding logo - this cup is from the bar we met at, they have hyper color cups so we want to copy them and go with hypercolor cups with our logo

                  Click the image to open in full size.

                  And then some snacks and a Puerto Vallarta post card, and that should be it!

                  I'm so happy you all told us about the Dollar Tree. We hit the jackpot there last night. We got all that stuff for CHEAPER than the wallmart bags alone!

                  Here's what it looks like so far:

                      Those bags look great! You may already know this but if you are putting postcards in them you should order them through vistaprint, they always have free postcard offers if you sign up for e-mails through them and you can upload your own pic if you want to, a lot of time they will have uploading for half off.
