We're Going Camping
Jul 13, 2018
When I tell people I coupon shop, they tend to think only of regular weekly shopping trips. Sometimes, there are special trips I make that have to do with our lifestyle. Traveling and Camping is something we do. We travel all across the country in our RV, and camp for pennies on the dollar. We fix breakfast, pack lunches, and grill dinners in many state parks. We've stayed in Washington DC, Virginia Beach, Yellowstone park, Grand Teton, and Gulf Shores Alabama. Right now we're planning to swing down to Tennessee and do a 10 day waterfalls tour. To be followed up by the ultimate waterfall tour next month in Niagara Falls NY.
One thing all these trips have in common is a tight budget and savings plan. My grocery shopping is part of our trip planning. I start weeks before a trip and add any sale and coupon items to a special box in my family room. It is full of things we need for less to "Party up" along our travels. It may be a pasta kit, or Hershey's chocolate bars, it might have jello cups, or paper goods in the box. Anything that is on my final prep list that I can buy ahead of time and save money.
Here's my list. I don't often share my family exact shopping lists, but this one will show you how I plan out convenient foods. All these items either can go in the cooler, rv fridge, or rv shelves. It's a simple grocery buy that typically lasts for a 10 day trip. Take all your coupons! Digital phone coupons, newspaper, printable coupons and some ibotta rebates. They all will help you get everything on this list for the exact same budget as your normal weekly shopping. Hope this helps you to plan a trip for your own family faster and cheaper.
