Getting ready for camping tip # 3- Pack in STATIONS

Just like I use stations in my home, I am using them with my camping organisation.

A station is where you place all the items you need for particular tasks together so they are there in one spot.

I am using these 8.5L decor buckets as they are waterproof (ish), and will keep a lot of the dust away. And they are a great size without being too big.

Pictured are our personal hygiene bucket and cleaning items/misc kitchen bucket. To give you an idea what we have in them I have copied my lists below the photos. Other buckets we have are things like kids distraction items, cooking utensils, dry foods, wet weather gear. At the end of the trip I will just tidy the buckets, replace what we have used, and store them ready for our next trip with a list of the items inside.
