Now, what are some things that you would need to keep in a camper? Basically, all the same things you need in your home. It is your home away from home, after all. And since we have spent all our money on the down payment, I am left with a teeny, tiny supplies budget.
Thank goodness for our local facebook page: Beg, Barter, Buy, and Sell in Brazoria County. This is an online garage sale site for our area, where I can sell our unused items and purchase other things we might need.
So this weekend, I have been selling a few things that we no longer need, the kids have outgrown, etc, and have found several things that we need for camping.
Here is my list:
- Queen sheet (we only have a king size bed at home)
- 2 pillows
- Queen comforter and sheets
- 2 twin sheets
- 2 blankets
- 2 pillows
- BBQ utensils
- pots and pans
- bath mats
- welcome mat
- laundry hamper
- one of those long lighter thingies to light the stove and oven
- toiletries (toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, dishwashing liquid, extra shampoo, etc)
So I have been browsing the site and came up with many things on the list for a very, very inexpensive price. The rest I am hoping to scavenge some things in our closets, long forgotten, and what's left, I will be taking a trip this week to a few of our resale shops to look through their selection. One of our resale shops usually has a pretty extensive selection of kitchen items...but I have never noticed how much plastic ware they have.
Plastic....it's how you roll in a camper!
