My Favorite Summer BBQ Essentials

*Disclosure- I received the mentioned product courtesy of the sponsor for the purpose of this review. All opinions are genuine, based on my experience with the product, and have not been influenced by promotional items.


Did everyone have a great weekend? I know we did! I was so thankful for warm (and dry!) weather, good friends, and spending time with my family. On Saturday we hosted a cookout at our house, and enjoyed watching the kids twirl around sparklers in the yard.

Sparklers

Teens and Fireworks

 Followed by a trip downtown to enjoy the city firework display! 


On Sunday we went to my niece's house for another BBQ and swimming! 


One of my favorite things about summer is getting together with friends and family, spending a lazy weekend eating good food and enjoying each others company. When I am hosting our cookouts, I don't want to spend a lot of time or money on our preparations. That's why I like shopping at CVS/pharmacy for my summer BBQ Essentials. 


CVS has everything I need to help me save time and money on summer entertaining. The CVS/pharmacy Total Home line of products are high quality, yet affordable, and I can get all of my Summer BBQ Essentials in one stop.

Total Home Paper Plates and Party Cups, aluminum foil and storage containers make serving and cleaning up after guests a breeze. 

Total Home Sanitizing wipes keep areas germ free. I also like to keep sunscreen on hand, as well as insect repellant so I can spend more time chatting with my guests instead of swatting at pesky mosquitoes all day! 

Easy to access snacks are always a hit too! CVS/pharmacy has an amazing selection of party favorites from Gold Emblem to choose from! CVS Gold Emblem Beef JerkyGold Emblem Almonds, and Gold Emblem Sour Cream & Onion Potato Chips are all excellent options!


If you are doing any summer cookouts or picnics this year, CVS/pharmacy has all you need to make outdoor entertaining a success!

You can find all your summer BBQ Essentials at your nearest CVS/pharmacy or at www.cvs.com.

What are some of your BBQ Essentials?

  1. I'm glad you had a good 4th! We did to. Our neighbors light off enough for everyone to watch. LOL

    It's good you got a lot to review from CVS. The timing couldn't be more perfect.

    1. We have so many trees in our area, view stinks, so nobody lights them in my neighborhood. Glad you could poach off your neighbors though :)

  2. Sounds like you had superfun, especially the kids! You don't have pool in your cassa?

    1. No pool here. Our yard is too uneven and there are too many trees. Cleaning it would be such a pain! We do use the neighbor's pool on occasion though.

  8. Lots of drinks! For sure and watermelon and corn on the cob. What is a bbq without them??? Looks like you had a great fun time! - Jeanine

  9. Looks like a lot of fun. Paper plates and disposable cups are such a necessity for cookouts. It seems like you can never have enough of them.

  10. Meat, meat and more meat! LOL - Chicken, Ribs, Hot Dogs, Hamburgers and some Salmon Steaks for good measure! :-)

  11. I missed out on 4th of July this year. They don't allow fireworks inside city limits (where my house is located) and I had to get up early the next day for work so I missed the local downtown one.

  12. I laid around, not as fun as your pad haha pools are fun as long as you don't own them, they are such a pain in the butt to maintain.

    ReplyDelete
  13. July fourth sounded like a blast! I'm definitely planning on doing more barbequing this summer. I had no idea CVs had such a selection!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I definitely have to have paper plates, plastic cups and cutlery so that clean up is pretty easy. I will have to look for Total Home products at CVS. They are new to me!

  15. It looks like you guy had a great time. CVS has some great deals on things for sure.

  17. Looks like you all had a great 4th of July! Paper goods are definitely the way to go when entertaining to make clean up easier!

  18. Love being able to find a good beef seasoned fajita and marinated chicken. In the new area we live in we can't seem to find it. Boo. Total debbie downer. Looks like you had a great holiday!!

  27. What a good time! I really wanted to swim and enjoy the fireworks but our families were so split up this year and I had a fiction story with a deadline. So, I just stayed home with the dogs and wrote.

    ReplyDelete
  28. We hardly ever eat potato chips, so I enjoy getting a bag of them when we have a barbecue. It's so convenient to have a shop around that has all the things needed for a great event. CVS certainly fills that bill.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Looks like everyone had a great time! What a great spread of food and snacks!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I always have to remind myself to check the propane tank before i have a BBQ. I have ran out more then once. I always make sure we have plenty of good food and snacks.
