Get a very detailed list, way ahead of time. Have everyone in your party check it and add their 2 cents. As you plan your trip, especially your meals, think about every detail for each task and add to the list. When packing the camper, actually check off the list. In the past, i have always forgot a few things. When I can only have about 7 days at the fort, every minute is just priceless, so i hate to have to go to town for anything. On one trip, I took my tent but forgot that my tent stakes were in a seperate bag. I went to walmart and the trafic was unbelievable. Walmart was so crowded. It took me 2 hours to get a few things. Thats 2 precious hours lost! I am determined to not forget anything this time.

Laundry hamper - on that folds up really small. There are 5 of us so when clothes are dirty they go right into this hamper and once it is full I just carry it to the laundry room. It keeps our camp site tidy and I have an easy way to carry dirty clothes to be clean. Plus when not using it is the size of a frizbee.

Toys for the kids - outside and inside. Nothing worse then bored children

Table cloth and clips

shoe bucket - my kids take sneakers, flip flops, crocs, so I have a container for the shoes right outside the door so they can take them off before they enter or right when they are leaving.

cooler just for drinks and one just for food.- the kids actually have their own cooler with drinks and snacks. They are always hungry so instead of them going into the camper to get snacks they can just get them out of their cooler.

My list is changing as we are going from Tent Camping to camping in our brand new pop up camper.

This is going to sound chincy but I have been getting some small packets like mayo, catsup and mustard from restaurants and keeping it in a bag I can put in the house. Things like those small containers of Smucker's jelly and honey seem to make sense for those of us who have a small camping family. I just hate to see a whole bottle of these things go to waste and have to buy more. I keep the Splenda, Equal and sugar in a bag as well that I put in the house.

Coffee stirrers in the plastic wrapper are good from Mickey D's and I always get a few moist wipettes from Sonny's which are a great thing to have anywhere if you don't have a place to wash up before eating.

I got blasted on my thread about parking in the overflow lot the night before we checked in so I hope nobody filet's me on this. I don't like take handfuls from 1 place. I usually get 1 or 2 at a time so it's not taking too much. I just don't ever see these things in Costco or whatever to buy like this. I think we're all familiar with how things like this don't keep well in a closed up camper that sits in the sun. Any other ideas???????
There is a website called "minimus.biz" that sells individual packets of all kinds of stuff like that. You can order as few or as many of each little item that you like.

Its a special bandaging to put over blisters, or areas that feel like they are about to blister.

Freezer bags

When we go to parks we always take big freezer bags. Space bags would work better. The big ones are large enough for us to put cameras and shoes in before a water ride. Wet shoes cause blisters and blisters ruin the whole day. I wonder how to carry around a pair of flip flops around disney for quick changes on the rides? I dont see how people wear them as their primary shoe on an all day march like DW.
