Maybe you want to be able to relax by the fire after you've had that 4th burger that you knew you shouldn't have had but you did, because freedom. The Endless Summer Outdoor Gas Fire Pit will help with that.

Or maybe you want to have your neighbors over but you don't actually want to interact with them (thats me). Hey, Walmart has you covered for that as well. Check out this Gazebo Pop Up fort. It not only protects you from mosquitos, but puts a barrier between you and Frank, the neighbor that talks just a bit too close for comfort and wants you to know about all his lawn care secrets.

Enjoy the outdoors by using Alvantor 10' x 10' Instant Canopy Screen House Beige. It's pop up style and easy to set up, so do-it-yourselfers can put it to use quickly. This instant canopy has UV 50+ protection canopy to keep the sun off those who are inside. The mesh walls offer the perfect air ventilation. It has two zippered doors for simple entry and exit as well. The bug-free canopy provides protection from insects on all sides. It is the best choice for picnic, barbecue and party in the backyard and park! This pop up screen gazebo has plenty of space, light-weight and fold compact for easy transport.

Below is an example of the posts that will be accepted in this thread. If your post does not mimic a similar layout, mainly linking your items (have fun with your post in general though), we will ask you to repost. Please keep any off topic banter to a minimum.

Be sure to post links of the items directly from Walmart's website and make sure the items you choose do not pass the $400 total (before taxes).

I'd like to start with an upgrade to the seating in my backyard, with the Yaheetech Set of 3 Wicker Chairs & Table. To compliment our new seating, I'd like to stare into the depths of my new Ktaxon Hexagonal Patio Fire Pit. Or set marshmallows on fire over it. Either or.

Thanks again to Walmart for this opportunity!

-Mike

My wife, Heather, is an ultra-marathon runner. Her adventures have taken us and our Subaru through the national parks and beyond. She's the mother of nine children (including two sets of twins). She works as a nurse taking care of women with serious mental illnesses. She works hard every day, and well... She deserves to kick back and relax! If I won, I'd get her some comfy outdoor furniture to help her lounge around and take a much needed rest while we grill up burgers. This would do the trick: https://www.walmart.com/ip/Outsunny...ir-Set-with-Zippered-Cushions-Brown/729454885

My wife and I would so love to replace our 13+ year old grill with a pellet or akorn type unit, get a gas fire-pit, or some new outdoor furniture (perhaps the plastic/resin wicker stuff or polywood adirondack chairs). She loves being outside, and wants to make it more enjoyable.

How would you spend $400 at Walmart to help spruce up your backyard for a 4th of July BBQ?

I would spruce up my newly retired parent's backyard with a new VEVOR Pop Up Gazebo 11' x 11' with Netting Outdoor Canopy Gazebo with 4 Sandbags ($185) and Walnew 4 Pieces Patio Furniture Outdoor furniture Outdoor Patio Furniture Set ($120) decorated with Way to Celebrate Patriotic 100-Count Indoor Outdoor LED Globe Lights, with White Wire ($20) so they can finally relax outside, enjoy their garden, and play with their grandchild. Finally what better way to light up and highlight the new backyard furniture than adding Mainstays Solar Stanford Pathway Light Set (Set of 8) ($33).

What is the 4th of July without some awesome fireworks for the little one as she'll love the 144pc Morning Glory Sparklers ($25) and personal favorite 250 Bang Party Snaps Snap Pop Pop Snapper Throwing Poppers Trick Noise Maker ($9).

I don't know about y'all but when I think of a 4th of July Celebration I think about celebrating independence.

What better way to celebrate independence than turning our former oppressor's logo into ashes?

I would start by purchasing a British Union Jack and some lighters.

Since Britain has invaded 178 countries out of 200...

513534


(countries invaded are colored in pink)

I think the majority of the world's citizens would also enjoy this cathartic experience.

After the inaugural proceeding of our celebration we typically let off fireworks.

Unfortunately, Wal-Mart.com does not sell fireworks so we'll have to make our own.

We'll just mix 20 parts of ammonia nitrate with 1 parts of aluminum powder.

This will create an effective binary explosive commonly known as "Tannerite"

With the mix created we will carefully set it on top of a Union Solder, represented here by a Nutcracker.

One of the boys usually ends up losing a digit in these festivities and you DO NOT want that to get infected.

To help prevent infection I make sure to have plenty of Amoxicillin on hand.

But them doctors don't always just give it out.

Luckily, Wal-Mart does. Here is a 30 count of 250 mg Amoxicillin tablets for $10.

While we're bandaging up whoever drew the short straw we will typically will continue the celebration by breaking out the karaoke machine.

No one sings Reba as good as I do!

Even though hamburgers and hot dogs are traditional at a 4th of July cookout, we locals have our own tradition, Turkey.

Specifically deep fried turkey.

We can get a fryer and a turkey at WalMart.com. Make sure to pick up 1 gallon of Franks Hot sauce for the Turkey.

Trust me, you'll use it.

Don't let the 1.5 star rating on the turkey fool you, our community has been enjoying this delicacy and tradition for over 70 years.

Finally, if your guests are getting too hot in these summer days you can quickly cool them off with the inflatable truck bed pool.

As the reviewers have mentioned, this makes the truck into a mobile hot tub time machine.

Since the great Sam Walton founded Wal-Mart, we have been shopping there.

I hope you are able to celebrate our country's independence in your own unique way and create new lasting memories for those around you for years to come.

Hopefully this post encourages you to see how much fun one can have with a $400 Walmart gift card.

Happy July 4th everybody!

My wife and I have taken to outdoor movies. We would go all out in making a small outdoor paradise for streaming those summer blockbusters (looking at you, Jaws).

First up, the screen: https://www.walmart.com/ip/Jumbo-12...er-Projector-Screen-with-Stand-Legs/632530501 ($100)

We'll need some audio to hear all the screams of terrified beachgoers over the fireworks: https://www.walmart.com/ip/6-5-Indoor-Outdoor-Waterproof-Speakers-Black/10298570 ($70)

Some luxurious seats to prevent fanny fatigue: https://www.walmart.com/ip/Walnew-Z...ow-2-Pack-Double-Gray/173104488?selected=true ($80)

Bugs aren't fun when, so some torches and bug juice will be necessary: https://www.walmart.com/ip/Mainstay...-Torch-with-Fiberglass-Wick-12fl-oz/197240844 (x4 - $12)
https://www.walmart.com/ip/TIKI-Bra...ed-Torch-Fuel-with-Easy-Pour-System/313056843 ($14)

A little mood lighting never hurts: https://www.walmart.com/ip/Mainstay...rd-AC-powered-6-Volts/459785495?selected=true (x2 - $22)

And you can't properly enjoy a movie without ridiculous amounts of butter-laden popcorn: https://www.walmart.com/ip/Nostalgi...es-10-Cups-45-in-Tall-Red-KPM200CART/29765881 ($100)
