Pitchers and Ice Cube Trays

Get a two-quart pitcher or a two-pack of ice cube trays for just $1.25. This is essential to hold your summer lemonade and keep it cold.

Grilling Tools

Summer is the season of grilling, so now is the time to purchase essentials you don’t already have. Choose from spatulas, tongs, bamboo skewers, reusable condiment dispensers, corn cob holders, deli baskets, grill brushes and scrapers and more.

Disposable Dinnerware

When hosting a summer party, the fewer dishes you have to wash, the better. Get napkins, paper towels, paper plates, foam plates, foam bowls and plastic cups at a bargain price.
