As regular readers will know, we love to camp. It can be a great budget way to take family holidays and last-minute weekend getaways but it can be expensive at the outset to get started and buy all the equipment.
If you're thinking of camping this year, or if you're a seasoned camper and need to upgrade or replace a few items, then you need to check out this weeks' special buys at Aldi which go on sale today.
The first thing you're going to need obviously is a tent. Aldi have two great offers to choose from with their 5 person tent at amazing value at only £79.99 it comes with a 3 year warranty. They also have a smaller pop up tent which sleeps 2 for £19.99 - perfect for festivals or trying out canvas in the garden.

For seasoned campers, or those spending more than just an overnight away, you'll want to think about an electric fridge to keep your milk and BBQ food safe and chilled. I know these can cost a fortune because we've looked into them, but this one from Aldi at £39.99 is great value. The electric cool box works from either the mains if you have electric hook-up, or via your 12v car socket. It's deep enough to hold 2 litre cartons or will hold up to 12 1 litre bottles.
