Finding Affordable Packaging for your Wedding Favors

Finding Affordable Packaging for your Wedding Favors

With all the costs associated with a wedding, it is no surprise that when it comes to wedding favors, many brides often forget that the packaging needs to be included in the favors budget.

Now more than ever couples are looking to cut costs and pull money from wherever possible. This applies to your wedding favors too. Whilst you may find the right favors at the right price, finding the right packaging at the right price can be a different matter entirely!

Take a look at some of the packaging choices available to you:

Plain card boxes Specialist favor boxes Tins Bottles and jars Bags Cellophane wrappers Plastic boxes Tulle nets Novelty containers – miniature pails, bird nests, plant pots etc.

There are probably a few more that I haven’t added to the list, but you get the general idea! Wedding favor stores will often carry a good range of packaging for the favors you buy from them. If possible try to buy your packaging from the same store as your favors as you may qualify for a discount on the total cost.

The internet has opened a world of choice for wedding favors and packaging.  Specialist wedding favor boxes are probably the most expensive choice. They come in a wide variety of designs and styles, but are mostly only suited to confectionary favors and very small items. However, if you research the market well you will probably be able to buy them in large quantities for rock bottom prices. If you need a lot, then try to pick them up wholesale, failing that, check out sites like Ebay for cheap favor boxes.

For a modern look to your favor packaging, consider tins or bottle or jars. These are available on the internet in bulk quantities and you will probably be able to purchase them wholesale too.

Florists stores will often have a range of novelty items that would suit wedding favors.  Items like miniature metal pails, woven birds nests, clear plastic boxes and miniature terracotta plant pots can all be found at online florist stores & again look for wholesalers for the best prices.

It is always a good idea to have bought your favors before the packaging, to avoid any size issues! The best advice is to shop around, look for discounts for quantity & seek out wholesalers for the best prices Also make sure your packaging is suitable for your choice of favor, it matches your wedding style or theme and that if needed it can be easily customized to suit your wedding.

Thermos Food Containers Advice

Thermos Food Containers Advice

The very first thing you may desire is often a container in which to pack the lunch. It doesn’t need to cost a good deal of dollars. For adults a smaller cooler makes a great lunch box. Fred uses a medium sized cooler. He is commonly gone for 24 to 48 hours, so he needs a good deal of food to preserve him going. For children and teenagers, you can often locate affordable lunch boxes and insulated lunch bags at yard sales and thrift shops.

Small children often prefer a plastic lunch box with cartoon characters on the side. I suggest you buy these as cheaply as possible. They only last for a year or two before the children drop them or the latch breaks. At to a piece, buying brand new boxes has never been a good investment for me. I have purchased them new when I desperately needed the thermoses that came with them. After the plastic lunch box broke, I purchased replacements from my local Goodwill. I continue to use the same thermos year after year.

If the art work on an older lunch box is shabby, you can easily replace it. Use rubber cement to glue down a new picture (cut to size) and then cover the picture with clear contact paper. I’ve done this, and it lasted almost 2 years, until the lunch box cracked and became unusable. Amy D. describes the process in detail in the first book of The Tightwad Gazette.

For older children insulated lunch bags work best. They don’t have the juvenile connotations of plastic boxes with matching thermoses, so older kids usually don’t object to carrying them. I like them because they don’t break when they get drop-kicked across the living room by a budding football player. Since they have soft sides, it is easier to fit more food and odd-shaped containers in them too. They usually have zipper closing and shoulder straps for carrying them. I buy the largest ones I can find because I find them easier to fill. Many modern insulated bags have several extra zipper pockets and sections on the outside to carry little extras like napkins, spoons and salt or pepper packets. My boys like these but they aren’t really necessary. Purchased brand-new, insulated lunch bags cost between and . If you wait until back-to-school-sales you may find them cheaper. Over the summer they can often be found at yard sales. Insulated lunch bags usually do not come with their own thermos, so you will have to use some you already have or buy them separately.

The Thermos
Which brings us to the next item you need for lunch packing: a thermos. If you have a thermos left over from older lunch boxes then use it. Whenever you can use something you already have it saves you money. If you don’t already have a thermos, then try your local thrift stores and yard sales. They can often be found for 50? to . Objectionable artwork can sometimes be removed with fingernail polish remover. If that doesn’t work, then cover the picture you don’t like with another picture you do like. Trim a piece of clear contact paper to fit neatly over the new picture and press it firmly into place. Be careful when you wash the thermos. Don’t soak it in the dish water for hours and hours. This will help preserve the new artwork.

If you absolutely need to buy new thermoses then the greatest selection is in August, right before school starts. I prefer wide-mouthed thermoses, sometimes referred to as insulated food-jars. They come in a standard 10-ounce size, and look exactly like regular lunch box thermoses on the outside. Inside however, their mouths are large enough to put chunky foods inside, like casseroles and beanie-weanies. They are also much easier to clean because of their wide mouths.

I have also seen small cold-only thermoses. They usually hold about 4 to 6-ounces, or about 1/2-cup. The lids go into the freezer overnight, and then chilled food is placed inside the thermos in the morning. By lunch time, the food is still fresh and cold. This works well for homemade pudding, jello, chilled fruit, yogurt, and the like. I used to try to use these for hot things too, but it turned out they only work for cold things. Live and learn.

Plastic Bags & Resealable Containers
In addition to the lunch box and thermos, there are a few extras you will need. These include small resealable containers and plastic flip-top baggies. If you have any small leftover yogurt tubs, the kind with resealable lids, they are excellent for lunch boxes. If you found a sale on 8-ounce containers of store-brand yogurt, it would be worth it to buy a dozen or so. Eat the yogurt. Wash and save the containers for lunch boxes. If this isn’t possible, then you can buy reusable Glad, or Zip-Lock containers in 8 and 4-ounce sizes. They last a long time, and are just the right size for jello, canned fruit, pudding, cobbler and salads. By the way, there is no rule that you must to fill a container all of the way full. You can fill a container half full of jello, yogurt, or pudding and send it to school just like that.

Sandwiches, popcorn, fresh fruit, veggies sticks, and boiled eggs go into flip-top baggies. I let my boys throw the bags away when they are done with them. Store-brand bags cost about 1/2? a piece, and save me having to wash any extra plastic bags. The plastic containers come home for a good sudsing everyday.

When it comes to expanding storage life of dry goods, you can’t beat a vacuum sealer IMHO.
