When camping, those words don’t often go hand-in-hand. After happening upon a cute mini-camping kitchen online, I immediately knew we needed one.
And so I searched the corners of our house to come up with a handy, light-weight ‘shell’ to neatly house kitchen essentials like:
- paper towel
- ziplock bags
- pairing knives & boards
- flippers and tossers, basters and smashers
Here’s what I found:
- an old wine crate (funny finding one in our house? Originally housing kids paint & art supplies, it’s about to be re-purposed)
- a cupboard hanging organizer
- a few drawer sorting boxes
- a couple of tins
It all neatly tucks into the crate for easy storage. The only additional weight is the light crate and shelf, so really we’re not adding any significant ‘loadage’ to our haul — something to consider when putting one together of your own.
For cooking outdoors, it’s not only convenient but also time-efficient to house all your high-frequency go-to items in something as functional as this … it means more time in the hammock and less time running to-and-fro!
