Dollar Store Camping Hacks

Homework, soccer practice, business meetings, PTA assignments, baseball games, project deadlines. Long deep breath…

Does your school year ever sound like this? Busy, busy, busy!

Is your family in desperate need of a vacation? Everyone has been working hard for the last 365 days and now it’s time to relax!

But is your budget, or lack of budget, stopping you? (Sorry about all the questions. But I’m trying to get you thinking! Ya know?)

Camping hacks all for under $1! The best camping hacks that help me have a much more comfortable camping trip! All supplies can be found at the dollar store!

Back in the day when I had no real clue what a budget actually was, summer could quickly become a frustrating time. We felt like we had this beautiful weather, but couldn’t go and do anything because we didn’t have any money. Now that we are out of debt, we love finding ways to save money on vacation. Just the other day I posted on my Instagram Story about a killer deal on a Disney vacation!! 

The key is planning! Start saving now for your vacation next year. You will be surprised on how quickly a small $10 weekly savings can add up!

I could write an entire article on how to budget for a vacation when you don’t have any extra money. Would you be interested in reading that? Let me know down in the comments and I might get that together for you if you want!

    I would be very careful with the hot dog sticks! The handle is not very long which means your kids will be very close to the fire. Most sporting goods stores have longer handles on their sticks!

    Love your ideas! I found with the picnic table clamps that all picnic tables are not created equal so sometimes the clamps do not fit. To solve the problem I use a twin size sheet. The elastic allows for multiple sized tables and prevents the wind from blowing off the sheet.
