We scoped out the whole store Wednesday after work, Labor Day advertisement in hand. The sale didn’t start until Friday.
We circled and made notes. Tried clothes on. Tried every camp chair in the section. Laid on sleeping bag pads.
Took the cheesy picture in the white water kayak billboard on the top picture.
Then we went home and debated… Do we need a lighter lantern than ours run by 3-DD batteries? Do we need a second thermos and if so, what size? Does we want winter car glamping with this blow up mattress like my brother just got?
Friday I went back, list in hand, and snatched up everything I could find (and no more, that’s the key to not spending your savings). Even though there was a giant bananagrams!
We ended up getting the 40oz thermos, one pair of hiking pants each, a kayak carrier for our car (in anticipation of getting single kayaks!!!!!!) and a couple other items (who doesn’t need a plastic egg holder?).
And… we got an Alcove…for glamping this winter. Had to do a dry run, of course in my new hiking pants!
Now we get to use our new items on actual Labor Day weekend to try them out!
What did you buy (or wish you bought)?
