The camping essentials - I've found a bargain which you all need to know about thread...

Recommended Posts

So my local Millets has been closing down for a while now, so has some decent discounts. Anyway spotted a travel towel today, cheap cheap, has anybody used one? You know they come in a tiny, compact pack but claim to be super absorbent!

Yeah I had a couple of those towels when I travelled round Australia a couple of years back - they do what they say! Definitely worth a purchase, but make sure you wash it before you use it for the first time otherwise it dyes everything it comes into contact with as soon as it gets wet.

I think they're really good, always take them on holiday. As well as being small they also dry quickly so you don't have to worry about them being damp and smelly in your bag.

Just back from Tesco, they have twin packs of plastic sporks for 50p that also have a serrated knife edge on the outside of one of the prongs (does that make it a knorkoon?) Also, twin packs of plastic over-door hooks for £1, which are useful for hanging your bag, coat, hat or whatever on whilst you relax in the long drops, safe in the knowledge that your kit isn't lying in a puddle of something you'd rather it wasn't.

Or just put it in the lock ups and donate your quid to the charity running them.

Hmm only if you don't care about a cow breaking its leg in said hole after the festival!

I bought a bargain duvet and 2 pillows from Argos today. First purchases of this year, got me properly excited.

Anyone reckon these will be any good? Sounds like a great price, but almost too good to be true? Don't want it to fall apart before I've even found my camping spot.

I bought one a few days ago and it arrived today. To be completely honest I am really pleased with it. Obviously the quality will not be as good as the £50 equivalents buts its good, it's feels good, it looks good and will do the job nicely for me. If it lasts just this year that will be fine.

Just purchased pillows from ikea. Rolled up so easy to pack £1.30.

Thank you for this. I need to provide beds for 8 Mexicans. That's their heads sorted.

These could come in handy for the bar treks

You can stack and carry them.

The only downside is the size but you might be able to fit the paper cups inside.

I have some of these but the pint size version that I *erm* acquired from a popular Aussie pub ;)
