Camping is fun! Not only do you get to explore the great outdoors, but you can also take a peek at what wildlife does in their natural habitat and sleep under the stars. Immersing yourself in nature around you is a wonderful feeling and one that cannot be had in the hustle and bustle of city life. But how can you make the most of your camping trip without worrying about carrying too many items or running out of room?

Below, we will provide you with some awesome DIY camping packing storage tips and tricks that will help you be best prepared for your next camping adventure.

Do Not Overpack

Oh yeah right. That is likely what you are thinking right now. How can you possibly go camping outdoors and pack light at the same time. The answer is simple and easy.

You do not want to have too much stuff with you because remember, you will have to move it around and carry it with you. Those extra items can become quite heavy and a burden if you aren’t careful.

When you go camping, only pack the minimum number of clothes you need. This could mean one pair of pants, one pair of shorts, and a couple of shirts. To help you keep clean, always bring a way for you to wash your clothes. This way, you can eliminate the need to bring seven outfits and you simply just wash the ones you have.

Keep Your Food in Air Tight Sealed Containers

One of the biggest mistakes that you can make is bringing along food with you that is not sealed or in an air tight container. Remember, you are out in the wild, which means wolves, bears, racoons, and other animals are out there. If you have open or easily accessible food, these animals will find it and they will take it, eat it, or destroy the campsite in search of it.

Food is a necessity so you must bring it with you but do pay attention to how it is stored. You should make sure that the food cannot be smelled through the packaging and always keep your trash stored away from your campsite.

Utilize Waterproof Containers

Waterproof containers are your best friend – believe us. They will not only keep your valuables safe, but they will protect other items as well, especially if it rains or you have to hike through some water to get to your destination. Having waterproof containers will provide you with the peace of mind you need.

Similarly to food, you want to make sure that you keep lotions and other highly fragranced items at home. Even storing them in a waterproof container can be problematic because if the animals smell the scent of the item, they may want to investigate.

Camping Storage Tricks and Tips

It can be hard to find storage when you are camping or hiking but it is possible to keep your items safe and organized. As we mentioned, you can utilize waterproof containers and pack light.
