5 GENIUS Camping Hacks Using Dollar Tree Items


The next time you and your family have an extended camping trip, don't break the bank! Here are 5 Dollar Tree items that can be re-purposed for camping.

1. Use Cake Carriers to keep your paper plates from blowing away.

Although they might be a little flimsy to hold a heavy cake, it is perfect for storing paper plates and napkins on the table so they won’t fly away on a windy day or get dirty.

2. Homemade Charcoal Grill 

Planning to grill foods on your camping trip? Make your own charcoal grill using a foil pan, cooling rack charcoal. 

3. Make campsite scrubbing easy with Bath Mitts 

For convenient campsite scrubbing, cut pieces of bar soap and place them in these cute bath gloves or microfiber wash clothes (found in the car section). Then just get the gloves wet when you are ready to wash and you won’t have to worry about dropping a slippery soap bar in the dirt.

4. Keep Bugs of Food with Shower Caps 

Use these shower caps to cover your plates and bowls to keep pesky bugs away. You can also keep your dirty shoes in these shower caps when packing up to keep any mud or dirt out of the car. 

5. Pool Noodles on Tent Lines 

A way to keep everyone aware of those tentpoles is to grab brightly colored pool noodles and cut a slit down one side of the noodle and cut them into smaller pieces (can make them as big or small as you want). Then just place them on the tent lines so that they are easy to spot during the day.
