Love spending time in nature of the outdoors?

It can be a hassle sometimes on planning your equipments and belongings prior to your trip.

The typical normal campers would bring almost their entire house along with them for their journey, but you’re no regular camper -- you’re extraordinary!

Here are some tips and tricks to up your game in the outdoors to make your camping experience a bit more pleasant and convenient. 

--------------------------------------------------

Basic Essentials

It’s always convenient to bring basic camping essentials with you at all times; you never know what and when you’ll need it. Make sure to limit the items and only bring what are necessary and store them in a small Tin (if not having a proper container) to bring with you.

--------------------------------------------------

Microfiber Towels

Have you ever heard of microfiber towels? Its super convenient as the material dries up very quickly after a wipe. Its also very thin in size so its easy to pack. Micofiber towels, if you don’t know, now you know.

Pillowcase & Clothes

Having to bring a giant pillow to fit your backpack just so you can lay your head in comfort while you sleep sounds like a huge burden. Plus, it would take up a lot of space in your storage bag. Here’s an idea, bring only a pillowcase with you and fill it up with your clothes to make a pillow for sleep. It saves a lot more space and will be easy to store.

--------------------------------------------------

A Cup for A Champion

This stainless steel cup is wonderful! It can be your official cup to drink or even eat in throughout your camping adventure. You can heat up your coffee if it gets too cold or boil food in it just by sitting it next to the campfire. You can find these types of cups in most convenient or hardware stores around.

--------------------------------------------------

Spork

You’ve probably stumble upon one this type of cutlery before. It would be wise to take this Spork with you as you want to minimize as much things as possible, instead of bringing both fork and spoon. You can easily find this item at most kitchenware and convenient store’s available. There is also a Swiss Army Knife with a Spork being one of its feature functions. You can include it in your ‘Basic Essentials’ storage container.

Instant Lantern

If the flashlight is not bright enough for the darkness at night, instead of bringing an entire lantern, simply place your light source beneath or aside of a filled-up water bottle or jug and the light will expand to a wider range creating an instant lantern.

--------------------------------------------------

Egg Bottle

Planning to cook some eggs for breakfast after a night of wilderness, but worried that it might crack on the way hiking to the camping spot getting there? Its all good, just crack a couple eggs (as many as you want...) and store them in a bottle prior to your trip. That way you don’t need to worry about them getting cracked on the way as they are fragile.

--------------------------------------------------

Bucket Shower

Poke some holes through at the bottom of a bucket, attach some strings to make it able to hang on a high area, and you have an instant outdoor shower.

--------------------------------------------------

Sand Paper (Light Matches)

Bring sandpaper with you as it can be reliably handy. It can act as a substitute for the match box incase it gets damaged or wet.

--------------------------------------------------

Deodorant (Combat Itchiness)

Mosquitoes can be annoying sometimes, especially when they bite. Do you know that Deodorant fights against itchiness? It reduces the amount of itch from the mosquito bite you are experiencing. So don’t forget to bring your Deodorant with you as it is multipurpose. If you don’t know, now you know.

--------------------------------------------------

Sage Leaves

Place some Sage leaves in your campfire and the smell is sure to ward off any pesky mosquitos. Sage leaves can also be used as a natural mosquito repellent for you. How cool is nature!

--------------------------------------------------

Tic-Tac Boxes (For Seasonings)

Those Tic-Tac boxes are great for storing seasonings. You can use them to store your salt and pepper, chilli flakes, cooking herbs and such.

--------------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------------

You can work DIY magic into nearly every aspect of camping. Its all up to your hands and your brain, that determines your survival skills. The outdoor nature is great! Let us know if you have any comments or suggestions to add, or simply share your camping experience and we hope you find these tips helpful. Have fun and good luck!
