    We're getting closer to our summer trip, and as I'm thinking about what I need to pack, I thought it might be fun to have a place for people to post when there are sales on things that people might typically need to take on their WDW trips.

    Things such as:

    Pocket Bac from Bath & Body
    Crocs shoes
    Bottled Water
    Personal Fans
    Mini Backpacks
    Running Shoes
    Wet Ones
    First Aid Supplies
    Etc...

    Please be sure to post the store, item, sale price, and valid dates for the sale.

    Thanks!!! :thumbsup2

    Crocs (Crocs.com)-
    I watch the outlet everyday on Crocs.com, google for discounts and free shipping codes. I find late morning and early afternoon is when new colors are added. DD now has about 7 pairs of crocs for this summer and I paid $8 plus free shipping at the most for each pair (some I bought last winter, some this spring-not all at once!) Even have 2 pairs put aside in the next larger size.

    I found these journals in the Dollar Aisle at Michaels for $2. I got the Mickey Heads from Home Depot and peeled them off the backing and glued them on the front. I can't decide which I like better :goodvibes The insides are made up of lined paper (wide ruled) and each journal has 100 pages. Great journal to take notes in during our trip for only $2 !!!! Guess I'll have one for next year now too :thumbsup2

    The blue Mickey is a little bumpy because I tried hot glue first and it was too chunky. A glue stick worked best!

    Thanks! I thought about getting some ribbon and tying it through the grommet on the front to add a little more flair. I'll post pics if I do :)

    Activities for the kids while traveling:

    I am going to buy window markers for the drive. I plan on using a coupon for 40% off at Michaels or AC Moore.

    I picked up a cranium game and 20 questions at our local $5 Below store. (I picked these up in the fall, but our store constantly stocks items like this.)

    Misters at Walmart - 7.97

    We will be at Disney for 10 days so will need to do a load of laundry; I am NOT going to pay the airlines for a second bag! I just got Purex Complete 3-in-1 sheets, which have detergent, anti-static, and softener in them... for free, by going online to the Purex website.

    Joining in ... AC Moore has 50% coupon for today only.

    Last week it was good for all week so I printed copies for each of my family (including my 1year old) and we all bought small toys for the trip -- drawing pad, Toy Story 3 activity book and Toy Story 3 Color Wonder Set.

    I was happy to see TS products since this will be big (at least for us) this year with the movie next month and Disney in July.

    Where to begin?

    I went to the dollar section at Target, and bought tubes of 15 glow "bracelets" for $1 (perfect for night time events)

    At the Dollar Tree (a local Dollar store) I found 2 packs of Glow Necklaces, 2 packs of Ponchos and collapsible umbrellas

    I haven't gone yet, but if you have a Brick and Mortar Disney Outlet nearby, call them next weekend. They tend to have sales on the holiday weekends. Last Easter, I got kids T-Shirts for $2.50 each: bought 1 for each day of our trip, and gave Sophie a brand new, never before seen shirt each day of our vacation.
