Camping Gear From the Dollar Tree

Yep, you read that correctly. I am a fan of the Dollar Tree. There’s a lot of junk in there, no doubt, but there’s a lot of treasure. You just have to know what to look for. Did you know you can find a bunch of stuff that’s great for you camping kit there? Well, it’s true. Some of the gear I’ve picked up in the last year has included –

– Metal buffet serving spoons. They’re the perfect size for camp cooking.

– Metal buffet spatulas. Ditto on being the perfect size.

– Mini cutting board.

– Paring knife with plastic sheath.

– Mini colander.

– Metal can opener.

– Purell hand sanitizer wipes.

– Pocket packages of tissue.

– Plastic toiletries containers.

– Jif To Go peanut butter

– Reynolds Wrappers aluminum foil sheets

– Cream of Wheat instant farina 3-pack

– Advil or Aleve travel packs

Mostly kitchen and toiletry items, but no camping trip is complete without them, so why spend a fortune?
