Do you want one consolidated site, or will you take different sites?

For things like snacks and travel advil, tylenol, etc, try minibus.biz 

The prices are pretty good, and there are some things on there that may surprise you!

Still looking for the candy, playing cards and bags.

@brendaray2009:  why don’t you just go to the dollar store?

  • For candy, snacks, and water, I suggest Costco/Sam’s Club to avoid shipping costs.  I spent no more than than $0.28 cents for each item.  Using coupons, it was:

Sweet:

  • 7 Kisses ($0.15)
  • 3 Wether Originals ($0.12)
  • 4 Hershey minis ($0.17)
  • Above 3 items in a 2 by 2 inch favor box ($0.10) – bought w/coupon
  • 1 bag Sweddish Fish ($0.10)
  • 1 bag Cape Cod dried fruit ($0.15)
  • 3 twizzlers ($0.07)

Salty/more filling:

  • 1 bag of Chips ($0.24)
  • 1 bag pretzel ($0.20)
  • 1 granola bar ($0.2)
  • 1 Trail Mix granola bar ($0.28)
  • 2 Water Bottles ($0.28)

I was worried about there being enough items in the bag, in retrospect I could have culled the list.  I bought the bags with coupons at Michaels/ACMoore – 40 to 55% off for 4 sets of 13 bags (I think about 20-25 cents). Stuffed the tops with tissue paper from The Party Store.  Created paper tags with leftover paper from the invites/programs.

I had advil in the bathroom baskets, but they weren’t used.

Try this site for cancelled casino playing cards!  Sure would make an interesting topic! http://www.casinosupply.com/Cancelled-Casino-Playing-Cards_c_412.html

I had cancelled cards before.  It is cool to see the different casinos!

Since you are getting married in December, try and scour after Halloween sales for candy.  I have bought candy after major candy holidays for as much as 75-80% off!

@glacier_gal:  I really like this site, and the advils and such are cheaper, as low as 44 cents for the tylenol and Advil.  I personally don’t like buying OTC medication at the Dollar Store.  The one near me NEVER has what I need anyway!
