The idea of buying a bunch of camping supplies for your next camping trip might sound daunting, but that’s exactly what one man did in a single day, all for a mere $30.
And it’s not just anyone buying these supplies: anyone can do it.
And not just any person, either.
This man has a full-time job, a mortgage, and a car.
But the cost of buying supplies in a timely manner, and getting them to you in the shortest amount of time, is not for everyone.
Read more about the cost-cutting tactics this man used in his quest to build a fully-functional camping store.
Here are a few tips to get you started:First, find the camping supplies you’ll need.
You’ll probably want to buy everything you need.
Make sure you’re not just getting the essentials: the essentials of your survival kit, like an umbrella, a compass, and so on.
You may also want to purchase some things you’ll use more often: a stove, a sleeping bag, and, perhaps most important, some extra water.
The cheapest supplies are usually available at hardware stores and online.
But you’ll want to search for products that are more expensive.
For example, if you’re going to be out camping and want to make sure you get the right stuff, go to Amazon and see what you can find.
(You’ll also want a GPS to help you find the best prices.)
Next, pick the products you want to put in your backpack.
The first thing you want is a waterproof case.
There are waterproof cases on the market, but you’ll probably need to buy one yourself to protect your backpack from the elements.
Next, you want a case that’s weather-resistant, like the one this guy built himself.
Make your own waterproof case for your camping supplies, or use the ones you already have.
(He also has a guide for you to follow.)
Next up, you need a tent.
It might not be the cheapest tent available, but it’s the most functional.
You can make your own tent, or buy one made for you, or make your friends one for you.
You could also go with the cheaper option, but this guy made his own, and he recommends it.
Next, you should have a tent pad.
Most tents are made of plastic, and this guy didn’t have to make one.
This one, he made himself.
(And he recommends buying a waterproof tent pad, too.)
Next you need something to hang your supplies.
This guy used the spare bed from his job, but any sturdy tent or sleeping bag is a good idea.
This is the one he built himself, and it’s sturdy enough to be useful for years to come.
Finally, you might want to grab a flashlight.
If you have a car, a flashlight can be invaluable, but most cars won’t have one.
If not, you can make one yourself.
If that’s not an option, check out these tips:The final thing you need to do is to figure out how much you’re spending.
This might seem like a daunting task, but for this man, it was a mere two weeks.
He made his money by buying the supplies he needed, and then putting it all together to save time and money.
