Summer Must Haves On a Budget

Summer is here!! And I am so excited… because that means warmer weather, sunshine and bbq’s. So I thought I would make a list of some of my favorite summer must haves with links for all of you!

I checked out the Target dollar spot this week and was impressed. Some must haves there (although I can’t link them) are… I am loving the outdoor light options for under $5 and the plastic dinnerware in awesome summer colors/patterns! I also couldn’t believe the deal on this straw bag!! And I like to have a first aid kit with me for any summer trips to the park, pool, etc. This one works perfectly.

I found the cutest and most reasonably priced patio chair cushions with Walmart. They were under $100 for the set and are so comfy and well made. They also dry so quickly.

My favorite summer candle so far is this delicious Tommy Bahama candle I found in Home Goods for $10, basket included!!

gazebo4And lastly; I saw this cute idea (pictured below) on Erin, @cottonstem’s instagram and fell in love. What a cute idea! She purchased some fun summer toys/necessities for her kiddos as an end of year gift. So practical!  If you aren’t following Erin @cottonstem, run!!! Some items I found for the kids to recreate this were; bubbles, a beach towel, new flip flops, sidewalk chalk and sunglasses. Most of the items I found on Amazon or in the Target dollar spot.
