Welcome to LPF Weekly Deals! It’s been a little while since I’ve compiled these, but with preparing for some upcoming travels and a big move, we’re thinking even more carefully about which items are truly worth their space. These are our favorite, tried-and-true travel gear and home life items that have stood the test of time. With 8 people in our home or when we travel, we try to only purchase items that are really worth their cost (and their travel weight). I hope this helps you, too!
REI’s biggest sale of the year is an amazing time to pick up some high quality gear at an affordable price. Here are some favorite items on big sale:
- Keen Newport H2 Sandals – we love these for our kids, toddlers, and even Dan. We use them all summer long for every activity from hiking to beach to pool and more.
- Keen hiking boots – we love their waterproof hiking boots for all our kids
- The best kids hiking backpack that we also love for travel (and the smaller size is great for younger kids)
- The women’s hiking backpack I love
- All Smartwool!! We adore their base layers and socks.
- Prana outdoors clothing (I love these women’s pants)
- All Hydro Flask items are 25% off!
- REI Co-op hiking poles are all 30% off
- A lot of women’s athletic clothing and men’s clothing is 25% off
- Lots of sleeping bags and mats are up to 25% off, including these super warm and packable kids’ down sleeping bags
- Up to 25% off hiking pants and shorts
I’ve also shared lots of other favorites in the below blog posts. Some of the bigger ticket items (like our favorite child hiking carrier or the best little satellite GPS device) would be a great opportunity to use the 20% off REI Co-op Member coupon, as well.
- Summer travel essentials
- Hiking Gear for Moms
- Camping Essentials with Kids
- Winter Packing List (it’s a good time to purchase winter items on sale ahead of time!)
- Kids Hiking Pack Checklist
- Squalane + vitamin C rose oil (soooo many of you have tried and loved this)
- Reef safe mineral sunscreen (I always use this one under my makeup)
- Resurfacing night serum
- Squalane + antioxidant cleansing oil
These bikes almost never go on sale, but they’re currently up to 25% off!
Our favorite bath and skincare items are on sale! They are our favorites because they are super gentle (even safe for teeny babies), have clean ingredients, and smell amazing. They only have sitewide sales a couple times a year so that’s always when I stock up. Here are some of our favorites:
- Our very favorite sunscreen (that they also have in a mist form)
- Sun stick (great for faces)
- Hair & body wash
- Everyday lotion
- All over ointment
Rumpl Outdoor Blankets & Mats – 25% Off Sitewide + EXTRA 10% Off
We adore our Rumpl puffy blanket – it’s warm and super easy to clean for taking outside, and packs down small. I perhaps love the Everywhere Mat even more – folds down super small, waterproof underside, a cinch to clean. Perfect for summer adventures. Plus, you can stack my code PASSPORTFAM10 for an extra 10% off!
I’ve been using these workout videos for months and I love how easy it is. You can filter by type of workout or length and it’s just so simple to have an easy option at home. For only 79 cents, it’s 100% worth it to have the option. You can also turn off auto renew so you won’t get charged again! Seriously no catch and it’s awesome.
My very favorite sunscreen is having a rare sale! I’ve been obsessed with Sunglow for a little while and they’re having an awesome sale this weekend. I also love their plant-based insect repellent.
I’ve talked many times before about how much we love our Beddy’s zip up bedding. I will honestly never again do bunk beds without these – they make life so much easier. I also really love them on mine and Dan’s bed in the back of the RV so they don’t slide around and make a small space look neat and tidy.
They’re having a sale of buy one, get one 50% off for Memorial Day so it’s a great time to purchase if you’ve been considering them.
I’m definitely a bit of a helmet stickler – my kids have to wear them any time they’re on their bikes or scooters and I like to get ones with really good protection. I love this helmet for my older two kids that has MIPS protection. For myself and my 8 year old, I love the style of these helmets – so cute and functional!
We really love the Gabb phone and watches to be in touch with our kids when necessary and helpful, but while not providing them a bunch of access they don’t need. These devices allow our kiddos to call and text, but don’t allow images, Internet, etc. (More about our experience with the Gabb devices here.)
They’re currently having a sale to get $50 off a Gabb device through 6/6/22. You can use this link or enter the code PASSPORT at checkout.
I got a pair of Sunski sunglasses last year and have loved them. I have a fairly narrow face and have never in my life been able to find sunglasses that don’t slide off my face constantly. While they have plenty of regular sunglasses, as well, they also have some narrow & lightweight ones specifically for small faces and they actually work for me! This is the pair I got last year, and I just grabbed anther pair.
We’ve had a Craftsy subscription for about 3 years and it’s so awesome. There are soooo many different options for online classes for adults & kids – drawing, painting, sewing, cake decorating, paper airplane making, yoga, and so much more. I love having this in my pocket for school holidays or rainy days. Definitely worth less than a dollar to have the option!
H&M is my go-to for my kids’ clothes. The Euro cuts work much better on my narrow kiddos, and I like that they have a “conscious” line, as well, and have times when you can bring old clothes to recycle. They rarely have sitewide sales, so it’s a great time to pick up summer essentials or to get ready for fall and school clothes.
30 % Off Target Clothing & Swimwear
Target is having a huge sale on clothing & swimwear for the whole fam. Perfect time to get these summer items if you’re looking.
Backcountry is doing a big sale with tons of outdoor gear items included. It’s a great time to look for items for summer season or thinking ahead to cold weather.
Brooklinen makes our favorite sheets/duvet sets. Dan and I have these on our bed and they’re truly the best sheets we’ve ever used (and we’ve tried quite a few). They’re super well made and high end without being astronomically priced, and I love the story of how this husband-and-wife team got their business started.
I adore the empowering children’s clothing from Piccolina that is also soooo soft and well made. The Trailblazer Collection is my favorite. They’re having a 30% off sitewide sale!
Old Navy is having one of their biggest sales of the year. So many huge deals on clothing, swimsuits, pajamas, and more for everyone in the family.
They’ve hugely stepped up how cute their stuff is in the last couple years, but here are some recent favorites we’ve purchased:
- Printed maternity leggings with pockets
- Maternity moisture-wicking long-sleeved shirt (I hesitated on getting this but I LOVE it – it’s sooo comfortable)
I’ve shared about these kids’ hydration backpacks so many times because they really are fantastic. There’s almost nothing more important to us to take on a hike with kids. They help us go farther, stay healthier & happier, and minimize whining for snacks & water.
My oldest two have now upgraded to these bigger backpacks now that they’re capable of carrying more without whining or passing off their pack, but these are fantastic for shorter hikes or for any kid who doesn’t want to carry more. (My 11 year old still uses his just fine when not using his newer one.) They’re number one on our list of kids hiking gear and we gifted our 4th kiddo his own for his 4th birthday this year (he was over the moon).
If you’re looking for some super classic and always-in-style sunglasses, Ray-Bans are #1. My dad has a pair that’s probably 60 years old (literally!) and they look as good as ever. If they had a narrow option, I’d for sure choose these. A ton of them are on amazing sale on Zulily!!
- We adore this peacock wallpaper in our primary bathroom
- Beautiful mug
- Knotted headband
- Pretty dish towels
- Wrapping paper
- Candles (that smell amazing)
- Marigold art print (or this London one)
- Gorgeous puzzles
- AirPods case
We love the promptly journals and they have a whole variety of special ones. While the blank journals are beautiful, my favorites are the parent-child connective journals (to write back and forth) and the childhood history journals.
I always feel silly paying a lot of money for yet another streaming service but at this price, it’s a no-brainer. Such a great deal.
I got this bag about 3 years ago and it’s been my go-to for summer ever since. It’s absolutely enormous – it fits at least 4-5 full sized beach towels, and has side pockets for all the things. The best part is that it has a zipper on top!! I cannot stand when big beach bags are open on top and then tip over and everything falls out. This keeps stuff contained, but still lets out any sand or debris from summer. It’s on super sale right now so you might want to grab a couple!
A bunch of other places are having great sales. I’m including my affiliate link to each store below. That means that if you make a purchase after clicking any of the links on this post (even if you purchase something on a site to which I did not directly link), I’ll earn a small commission. This does not change your price.
I never want to encourage you to make purchases you don’t need/want, but am very grateful when you use my links for purchases you’re already making. I hope this is helpful in sharing some of our favorites that are genuinely useful to our family, and hope they’re helpful to you, too!
