1. Store Matches in a Mason Jar
Before you leave home, transfer your matches from their cardboard box into a mason jar. This will ensure they stay dry in the case of rain! Be sure to buy strike anywhere matches and glue a piece of sandpaper to the lid before you leave!
2. Gallon Jug Lamp
Bring a gallon jug and a headlamp to make an easy lantern for your tent or picnic area. By filling the jug with water and facing the headlamp inward, you can create a ton of ambient light.
3. Pre-whisk Eggs
Mealtime can be crazy when you’re cooking over a fire! Save some trouble by whisking your eggs at home and storing them in a plastic container. This also saves you from having crushed eggs in your cooler.
4. Toothpaste Dots
Rather than bringing a whole tube of toothpaste, you can create lighter, more portable, toothpaste dots. Be sure to allow enough time to dry before you head out on your trip.
5. DIY Fire Starters
Don’t struggle to get the fire started! Fill empty toilet paper tubes with lint from the dryer and light with a match to get your fire going.
6. Prepare Salad in To-Go cups
For an easy campsite lunch, prepare chopped salad at home before you leave. Store the salad in plastic to-go cups to keep them fresh and dry in the cooler!
7. Store Snacks in Plastic Containers
Rather than bringing bags or boxes of snack foods, transfer your snacks into plastic containers before leaving. This way your snacks will stay dry and fresh, and they wont get crunched!
8. Store Plastic Cutlery and Napkins
To keep your picnic area more organized, you can keep your plastic silverware and paper napkins in a recycled drink holder!
9. Collapsible Trash Can
Use a collapsible mesh laundry basket lined with a trash bag to keep your trash accessible and contained!
10. 2-Liter Toilet Paper Holder
Keep your toilet paper dry by storing it inside a repurposed 2-liter. Just cut off the bottom and excess plastic, pop in the TP, and pop the bottom back on!
