Not go camping very often. This saves a whole
bunch of money in camp fees. However it is not
the perfered method. I really like to camp, but
funds have been tight this year.

In response to "peanut butter jars". If you heat up an
ice pick and put it through the plastic lid to make a
small hole you can put a regular size straw through the
lid and it makes great drink containers for kids that are spill proof.

Go on a trip with family, and they usually buy the fuel, food, fishing supplies, ATV fuel, entertainment ect, and we provide the RV..Cook with micro instead of stove, saves propane @ 2.49 a gallon. that or over the campfire with the Dutch oven.
Hunt for RV/Camping supplies at yard sales or flea markets.
Fix almost everything myself. (truck/RV/ATV related)

FUll time camping in 2007: 143 days & counting......

We burn the neighbour's dog poo from our lawn in the campfire, good heat and really not noticeable sitting upwind.

Joking. But we do bring our own firewood from home for our campfires. A fellow camper goes to a neighbourhood cabinet making place and gets hardwood nubs and pieces for free by the boxfull... they are great for campfires too... great coals for marshmellows, etc.

Cheap camping

We camp overnite at Wally World. When we eat supper, most have a Mc Donalds, and the dollar value menu! Use their rest rooms, too.
That's pretty cheap!!
