We have learned to bring both regular and recyclable trash bags when we go camping (you’d be surprised how much of your camping debris is recyclable). When the quantity in the box gets low, you can save space in the camping box by securing the remaining bags with a rubber band instead of keeping them in their cardboard box.
We keep a standard set of spices/seasonings in the camping box in these spice bottles from The Container Store. We then keep them together with a zippered mesh bag so they don’t bang around in the box.
Zippered mesh bags are also a great way to organize other small things you want to keep together in the box. We use them for our different insect repellants, as well as our small flashlights. I hated digging around looking for flashlights in the past.
We got a small plastic storage box from Ikea to keep our misc. small tools and utensils organized within the larger camping box. We keep a dedicated pair of scissors, sets of utensils and measuring cups/spoons in the box, and organize them with rubber bands or carabiners. Other small items include bag clips, a can opener (we’d be screwed if we ever forgot our can opener when going camping), coffee scoops, etc.
We keep other random small items together in a plastic pencil case.
Ta da! The finished product, ready to store in the garage until we are ready to load it into the car for the next camping trip.
