Filling a camper

Now that the camper is tucked away at home, we are ready to go camping. My husband will be working graveyards all of Spring Break, except for the last three days of it. Those three days, we are planning to take a quick trip back to Jellystone for the camper's maiden voyage.

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
  • towels
  • BBQ utensils
  • silverware
  • plates
  • bowls
  • cups
  • pots and pans
  • potholders
  • toaster
  • 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.'s how you roll in a camper!
