Budget Friendly Pool Essentials


Can you believe its May already? I feel like we are on the fast track to summer. Don’t get me wrong, I am DEFINITELY not complaining. I love summer! I especially love the sunshine, and I really especially crave the sunshine now that we live in Oregon. The weather here is no joke. It rains practically 9 months out of the year. The other 3 months are HOT and rainless. We wind up with a drought nearly every summer. Oh, and did I mention we don’t have central air? We finally got smart and when this backyard pool went on clearance last winter for just $60, we snatched it up. I haven’t set it up yet, but as soon as its consistently warm out, I am going to fill up that bad boy, and I won’t be getting out until September.

If you’re planning on hitting the lake, the ocean, the pool or even just your own back yard, you’re gonna want some summer fun essentials. I found a few fun deals, all under $30 to make your summer a little sweeter! These are perfect for the beach or the pool, and they won’t break the bank.
