Memorial Day Weekend Sales

There are Memorial Day weekend sales hitting basically every store in existence right now, so it's an ideal time to grab some warm weather essentials. Whether it's grilling must-haves, outdoor furniture, or a new summer wardrobe, you can likely find it discounted at the moment. Shoppers can expect to find items for 15% to 80% off this weekend, according to Wallet Hub, and I'm here for it. This is what I'm going to get.

Pretty much every furniture or outdoor site is going to be offering some kind of discount this weekend on outdoor seating, tables, and everything in between, so you have to pick and choose carefully. I’m specifically looking at this wood seating set, which is a steal at 69% off. The original price is listed as $1,103! Reviews are a little bit mixed, but one reviewer suggests sealing the wood, which should make the set last longer.

Intex Pool

Intex Pool

$137 from Target

Literally every summer I buy a few pool toys and some sort of pop-up pool for the backyard. And every year it all gets ruined somehow from leaving it out in the weather. Okay, maybe that’s my own fault, but I doubt this stuff is meant to last that long — which is why I might as well grab it on sale. I’ve had variations of this Intex pool over the years, and it's always a lot of fun for backyard splash sessions. And saving $82 off the original price means I can buy more pool toys.

Exped Backpack

Exped Typhoon 15 Pack

$64 from REI

I always hope to get some great family outdoor adventures in during the summer. Often these are fails, due to whining, tiredness, hunger, boredom, you name it. I'm still trying, so I’m getting this top-rated hiking pack on sale from REI, which currently has a huge anniversary sale going on with 30% off tons of items. Even if it ends up just stuffed with the dolls my kid brings everywhere we go, I'm sure I'll get use out of it.
