Camp Packing -Time Saving Hack for Weekend Campers

This post contains affiliate links.

I’ve been talking with some friends about going camping for a few months, but we never put anything in stone and were kind of wishy washy.  Well, we decided to go this weekend.  I only have 4 days to get ready, it’s the week before spring break and I already have a ton of stuff to do before the kids are home next week.  Luckily, I have this little camp packing hack that saves a ton of time.

Does your family like to camp? Here's a great camp packing hack that will save you tons of time so you can take those last minute trips!

Camp Packing Hack That Saves Tons of Time

First, I have a ton of these bins in all different sizes.

Depending on where you live and how long you like to camp, your bins will be different.  You can have more, less and different sizes!  I keep everything stored in these bins.

I have a couple of bins of items we always use when we camp, little items that you need.

  • flashlights–  We make sure each of our kids has their own.
  • lanterns
  • lighter
  • toilet paper
  • paper plates
  • silverware
  • bug spray and sunscreen
  • Card games

You get the picture.  I pack it up when I leave camp and I don’t get into again until I go back to the campsite the next time.  I just make sure to make of list of anything that needs replenishing for next time.

In my next bins I have items that stay near or in the tent.

  • tarp
  • sleeping bags
  • air mattress
  • air mattress pump
  • extra batteries (for the pump)
  • clothes hamper (from the Dollar Store, it folds up nice)
  • clothes pins

I usually just have to make a menu and pack up food and we’re good to go!
