Look for Less: Summer Picnic Sets


It’s officially summer which means that we’re knee-deep in outdoor activities. In our books, there’s nothing better than hitting the sand or the city park for some warm-weather R&R.

So when we found this Coral Picnic Tote from Kim Seybert we were instantly taken - a sturdy canvas bag packed with a full picnic setting for two in poppy coral. Then we saw the price tag: at $260, it just wasn’t in the budget. Being the CheapChica’s that we are, we never stop watching our wallets no matter how carefree the days might be.

We were still debating our purchase when we discovered Target’s new FEED USA collection. Launching this Sunday, the collection features homeware, accessories and plenty of picnic-ready pieces (our favorites include the $30 Striped Throw, the $13 water bottles, the $17 checkered Stoneware Pan, and the $10 FEED USA Burlap Bag.)

And, every purchase helps to feed needy children and families throughout the U.S.

So while we wish we could afford Kim Seybert’s beautiful picnic set, in the meantime we’ll be making our own with FEED. Saving money and helping others, all in the name of having a good time. Does it get better than this?
