International Sportsmen's Expo and AZ Boat Show

Get your outdoor adventures started at Arizona's largest fishing, hunting, boating and travel consumer show.  The International Sportsmen's Exposition and Arizona Boat Show (ISE), is back, has moved to the vast, 386-acre WestWorld of Scottsdale event center, and more than doubled in physical size to spotlight the products, destinations and services of more than 300 exhibiting companies.

The Valley's top marine dealers more than 15 of them--will present 40 boat brands and 120 sport, recreation and fishing boats. The Arizona Boat Show will also spotlight kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, flyboards, marinas and marine-accessory exhibitors.  

In addition to hundreds of displays with gear and adventures, outdoor enthusiasts will be treated to a variety of new show attractions, all free of charge. Check out the Action Water Sports' giant "Rail Jam" pond for pro wakeboarders and stand-up-paddle-boarding demos. Test the latest-model UTVs and ATVs at the new Offroad Test Track, presented by Kawasaki and other major brands. The new Lowrance Electronics Learning center will teach anglers and boaters how to use marine electronics, classroom-style and with real units. A 40-ft.-long, bass- and catfish-filled aquarium tank serves as center stage for pro-led fishing and kayaking seminars. Attendees can also get fly-casting instruction from local experts, and samples of rattlesnake sausage from The Sporting Chef, Scott Leysath. Audubon Arizona will offer wildlife-watching seminars, and the Arizona Taxidermy Association's State Championship will showcase stunning artistic displays of fish and game in natural settings. The Adventure Theater offers hourly seminars by local and national fishing, hunting, camping and outdoor experts, including Dan Kidder, Gear Guru and host of the show's Outdoor Product Showcase, which features outstanding new gear and daily giveaways.

There's plenty of hands-on fun for kids, too, including two catch-and-release fishing ponds and archery and casting games, courtesy of Bass Pro Shop. Plus a climbing wall and zipline (fee).

Deal Diva Alicia Markham shows great finds at the one dollar store.

1. Greeting Cards: Everyone who's been to Hallmark knows a greeting card can set you back as much as six bucks. But it doesn't have to! The dollar store has you covered. They have greeting cards for every occasion at less than a dollar.

2. Plastic Utensils Why spend more money on something that is just going to be thrown away right after use?

3. Paper Clips at Office Depot: a pack of paper clips can run you $2.49. Get'em for $1 a pack at Dollar Tree.

4. Storage Bins: Bins used for storage don't need to be anything fancy. You throw the old Christmas lights in and toss it in the basement. At the dollar store, you'll find bins for a variety of uses.

5. Tampons/Sanitary Napkins: As long as women still have to pay for these, they should purchase them at the dollar store. Feminine products can set you back six to ten bucks elsewhere.

6. Aluminum Foil: You should always get your aluminum foil at the dollar store. The price per square foot will always beat any other retailer.

7. Wrapping Paper: At other stores, wrapping paper can be 5$ per roll, but at the dollar store, a 20-foot roll is a buck.

8. Cleaning Supplies: Buying cleaning supplies at the dollar store is a good way to keep to a budget. The supplies have all the same ingredients (though maybe a bit diluted) and get the job done.

9. Double-Sided Tape: This can cost around five bucks at Staples, you can find at a fifth the price per inch at the dollar store.

10. Mailing Supplies: The dollar store sells padded envelopes in pairs of two and a ten-pack of mailing labels.

11. Seasonal Decor Holiday decorations are crazy expensive these days. Rite-Aid sells some of their Christmas decor for as much as $60. But never fear, the dollar store is here. They may not have as large a selection, but you sure won't be busting any budgets.

12. Craft Supplies: Even if you're not into crafting, it's a good way to keep kids busy. The dollar store sells plenty of beads, crayons, paintbrushes, coloring books, glitter, and more!

13. Socks Socks are basically disposable clothes. They always get lost in the dryer or develop holes quicker than you want them too. Therefore, dollar store socks are the way to go.

14. Hair Ties Hair ties are like socks. You buy 50, and suddenly you have two. They got lost so fast, you might as well save on them. Hair clips and other accessories are also very cheap.

15. Bathroom Supplies: This includes shaving cream, mouthwash, toothbrushes, and loofas.

16. Mugs/Glasses: This a good way to store up on mugs and glasses for cheap. Just make sure they're dishwasher/microwave safe.

17. Picture Frames: Back in the day, people actually posted pictures on walls instead of social media. If you're into that kind of thing, a variety of picture frames are sold at dollar stores for a fraction of the cost.

18. Pots/Vases: You can find some pretty pots and vases for planting flowers at the dollar store. Why spend the extra cash if you don't need to?

19. Books Barnes and Noble sells new books for over $20. The dollar store also has popular books for a fraction of the price in hardcover.
