Glow in the dark tent stakes…. so nice to not trip over when stumbling to your tent in the dark! 61OcF3XGdNL._SL1200_ or glow in the dark rope for that matter! 71Nrj2EcY+L._SL1280_

Save up those tic tac containers to use for your seasoning (a weekly pill box would work too!) tictac_04_large

speaking of coolers…

throw down some cooling racks to keep it organized. (I hate digging trying to find something!) f082eceb36c6050838c3c8714208accb

Okay..this is crazy expensive (or at least for this cheap broad) but I had to share this bunk bed...it’s pretty freakin cool! 81F+tDaGa+L._SL1500_

Those cheap shoe/pocket organizers are AMAZING! I have one in my tent AND one by my “kitchen”

I also sewed up a fun one for the kids (they each got to decorate their pocket with puff paint) and then they get to keep their water bottles, cups and if we wanted to give the kids treats or glow sticks we would stick them in there!

We always try to pack as light as possible…so this 12 in 1 tool is amazing. 31MrvcY0N0L

  • Scissors, screwdriver, magnet
  • Can opener, wrench, fish scaler, nut cracker
  • Jar wrench, wire stripper, wire cutter, bottle opener, knife

 

I do this everytime! Throw some water bottles and a few gallons of water in the freezer. Use them instead of a block of ice! When it melts you have water to drink! water-final-with-words-and-happy

 

 

The only reason I envy men…you go girl literally

–we own one…we fill it up in the river or lake…lay it out in the sun and heats up. Then just hang up on a tree. It’s great to rinse of kids before bed and to wash hands!

Or clean out a laundry detergent bottle for a hand washing station! laundry-detergent-water-dispenser-225x300
