Let’s Get Hygenic

Like many a bride who has come before me, I’ve added “bathroom courtesy basket” to my ever-growing list of crap to accomplish before tying the knot.

While it may seem a like a frivolous detail, having been to weddings both with and without the BCB, I find it to be very useful and a nice gesture by the bride and groom, without being very time consuming or expensive.

I found a few grey woven baskets at my local Marshall’s (aka, my own personal heaven) and filled it with goodies from the travel section of my local Wal*Mart (aka, my own personal hell).

In case you’re wondering what’s inside each, here’s the breakdown:

In the Men’s BCB:

  • Baby Wipes
  • Tissues
  • Febreeze
  • Lint Roller
  • Anti-Bacterial Hand Gel
  • Q-Tips
  • Mouthwash
  • Mints
  • Visine
  • Wisps Mini Toothbrush/Paste
  • Floss/Toothpick Combos (um, LOVE these)
  • Axe Body Spray
  • First Aid Kit
  • Gold Bond Powder
  • Tums
  • Advil
  • Shout Wipes

In the Women’s BCB:

  • Baby Wipes
  • Tissues
  • Febreeze
  • Lint Roller
  • Anti-Bacterial Hand Gel
  • Q-Tips
  • Mouthwash
  • Mints
  • Visine
  • Wisps Mini Toothbrush/Paste
  • Floss/Toothpick Combos (um, LOVE these)
  • Hairspray
  • First Aid Kit
  • Tampons/Panty Liners
  • Tums
  • Advil
  • Shout Wipes
  • Hair Elastics
  • Bobby Pins
  • Makeup Wipes

Also, those comically large clothespins will hold a sign for each with a witty little saying about only taking what you need and not being a BCB hog.

Are you working on BCBs? What’s in yours?!

    @HourThyme: LOL, we did have the condom debate – but we are having a few kids there, no balloon animals! 😉

    @lovelyduckie: Yay!! 😀 Nice choice!

    @Blonde17Jess: Great call on the sewing kit! I plan on adding a few last-minute things too – safety pins and the like!
