Just got back from Walmart (*shudders*). They have Coleman 50qt, 5 day coolers and Igloo 60qt, 4 day coolers, both for $29. they're the kind w/ wheels and telescoping handles. Also manged to snag an off-brand, small 1.5L camelbak for $13. It was hiding WAAAYY in the back on the shelf in the clearance section. Looked s if someone was trying to hide it for a later purchase! sadly could only find the one, so may have to get another off-brand through Amazon (thank goodness for prime shipping!) or in store. Now we just have to get the grub and booze!
Oh, and I noticed the CVS stores around me had some cheapie folding chairs that are BOGO free at $12.99 ($6.50 per chair!!)
Rite-Aid currently has a lot of their name-brand sunscreen buy one get one free. I think it expires tomorrow, but includes aloe vera. Also, their travel-sized items (shampoo, etc) are buy one get one free, as are their Citronella insect-repellent candles, which might be handy for campsites.
Target has solar pathway lights for $2. Expires tomorrow too.
Bought a 12x12 EZ UP Siera II on SEARS.COM. If you order before 5am tomorrow morning, there's a 10% discount on top of the sale price of $90. PLUS, if you enter the code SEARS2011 when checking out, you'll get ANOTHER $5 off. So, a canopy with a list price of $125 cost me $82.42.
thatdailydeal.com/ - Daily deal for today is a flashlight. I got this in a previous daily deal before Roo... love it! even has a green light and UV light, strobe, compass (helps when setting up camp), etc About $13 with shipping.

Can't decide if I'd like that or not, doesn't seem like it would provide that much shade despite it being 14x14, and it seems like it would be more difficult to hang up blankets/sheets as wall to provide any more protection.
A neighbor had one like that last year. A few of us tried to make one campsite with a big common area (4 cars, 12 people) which worked perfectly with the exception of the canopy above. Doesn't exactly match up well with the EZ Ups and such.
