Stock Up on Outdoor Camping Equipment before Spring Hits
Outdoor camping equipment coupon codes are absolutely awesome. I say this as a girl who grew up in the wilds of West Virginia (don't judge!) and thus spent a lot of vacations camping — in actual tents, no less! A two-person tent for my parents and me, sleeping bags and pillows, portable grills and picnic tables, plenty of lawn chairs, bug zappers, battery operated lamps, coolers, and scads of other items: they filled spring vacations, long summer weekends, and fall holidays. As long as the weather was warm enough and our sleeping bags were cozy enough, it was all good. The nighttime air didn't matter so much, because there's nothing better than cuddling up in a plush sleeping bag, all bundled up in long johns and sweats — and I'm absolutely not being facetious! A lot of kids are about to start going on their spring breaks, and before you know it, May is going to arrive, quickly bringing summer with it. My point? It's the best time to start stocking up on camping equipment — even the frou-frou kind, like comfy air mattresses! Whether you're a couple going for a romantic little rustic holiday, a group of friends heading out for some fishing and bonding, or a family looking for a lovely vacation, camping is a great way to do it and you should start buying up the necessities post haste.
Your Camping Checklist
Different people need different things when they head out to spend some time in the great outdoors. Naturally, the outdoor camping equipment coupons you use depend on what you need to have to make your little camping adventure comfortable. If you have a camper or a trailer, your needs are pretty well met, although you'll still need a few of the essentials. If you're going to rough it all the way, you'll definitely need the basics, such as:
- an appropriately sized tent, whether it's a multi-person or a pup tent;
- sleeping bags, pillows, and extra blankets (air mattresses are considered luxuries, but they are comfortable);
- a portable grill, charcoal or otherwise, for cooking or plenty of hot dog and marshmallow sticks if you want to roast everything over open flames;
- camp chairs;
- lots of bug repellent;
- flashlights and lanterns;
- and toilet paper.
That last one is definitely a big deal!
And where can you use your outdoor camping equipment discounts? There are a variety of great stores, but I recommend taking a look at the equipment available at stores like Sierra Trading Post, Sears, and KMart first. Sierra Trading Post can help you find a lot of specialty items, but you can get your basics for fabulously low prices at Sears and KMart. Take advantage of the promise of spring and stock up on all the items you'll need now. Once the weather starts to get hot, you'll be glad you have it!
