5 Useful Camping Hacks
1. Water-Proof Match Holder
Wet matches typically mean the difference between a yummy campfire-prepared meal and eating bologna sandwiches. Make a simple water-proof match holder out of a Mason jar and sandpaper. Place the jar lid on the sandpaper. Trace around it, cut out the circle and hot glue it to the bottom side of the lid. Fill the jar with matches and you’re good to go. I just love this camping hack!
2. Emergency Medicine Cabinet
You never know when someone might get an allergic reaction or need a remedy for common ailments like heartburn or diarrhea. Make a mini medicine cabinet out of an inexpensive plastic pill container. Fill each section with over the counter medications. Essentially, whatever you think your family might need.
3. Kitchen Organization
Keep your camp kitchen totally organized with a cheap see-through plastic shoe organizer. Use it to store all kinds of cooking utensils and food prep supplies. Hang it somewhere within easy reach, to keep bugs at bay.
4. Light-Up Cooler
A super-simple way to keep track of what’s in your cooler, once the sun goes down, is to add several small glow sticks in with the contents. Seriously, how much easier does it get? I am sure you will remember to do this useful camping hack!
5. Tent Floor Comfort
Purchase enough large interlocking foam floor tiles to cover the floor of your tent. Not only does this make it easier on bare feet, it also makes sleeping a lot more comfortable. Save money by looking for the tiles at yard sales or on eBay.
