Preparing for a Camping Trip

April 7, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 


dv1603002My previous post about getting organized when preparing for a camping trip comes in handy for all campers, not just those with small kids. As part of your preparation, read this great checklist.

Still, you might figure out you need a few more supplies. When planning for big purchases, it always pays to shop around and do all your research so that you buy exactly what you need and pay as little as possible for each item.

I am a huge fan of couponing and buying secondhand myself, but more importantly, I like to feel confident when making a purchase and not feel like I’m getting ripped off. This comes into play when planning to purchase new camping supplies, whether it is for a large item or relatively small one. Check out the deals at Camping World for your next shopping trip.

The list shown above will help you make sure you have everything you’re going to need while camping. It’s also a great resource to use as a buying guide for things you still need to purchase. It’s mandatory, in my opinion,  to work off of a checklist since it will help you stay organized while also preventing you from over-spending or going on a mini-shopping spree for things not on the list (easy to do in an excited moment when you are at the store checking out all the cool displays).

Happy shopping and best of luck finding some great deals while preparing for a camping trip of a lifetime.
