Cheap Picnic Tables
Affordbale Tables for Picnic and Camping
For those of us who enjoy the outdoors, tailgating and camping, a cheap picnic table is a must-have accessory to have. This is the kind of gear that everyone should have in their car since they are lightweight and take very little space. Small and portable tables are great for camping, or even the short road trip, but they also double as affordable extra tables for when you have big get-togethers with friends and family.
The portable ones are great to have in the car or RV for those on-the-fly moments when you have found the perfect spot for a break. Most of these are collapsible, folding picnic tables that really take very little space once broken down.
Featured below is my selection of tables that fit the bill for being affordable and useful.
Salt and sand can't hurt this folding table which is low and simple and quite perfect for beach use.
if you sit in the sand and stretch your legs out under the table, you have a steady and clean lunch platform!
Our stops along the way - Picnics create solid family bonds.
When I was a kid we did a lot of road trips. Most of these would be over the weekend, sometimes just over the day. This was during the 70's and at that time there weren't as many fastfood stops along the way as we see today. That of course was a good thing because you had to bring along your own food. So we would make an effort to find a calm spot with some nice scenery, pull over and set up our temporary lunch camp - which sure beats going inside a grease parlor.
Mom was a good cook and always had more than enough food ready for the gang at every stop. We would break out the folding camping chairs and tables and set a proper table, with cutlery and napkins (that always blew away).
Three-in-one toss game
It was just the way we liked it, without any stress and it offered a good opportunity for family activities after the meals such as a game of backgammon, or toss games of all sorts.
It is good to see that this type of table is back in popularity.
