Camper Hack #1: Command Strips

After our first trip in the camper I knew we needed to make some organizational updates. I am an efficiency expert and I want to make sure every square inch of space is utilized while still keeping a comfortable and homey feel. We made a few adjustments each trip and now we are planning our first big voyage for spring and I want to make sure everything is ready!

The camper hack we are focusing on today: COMMAND STRIPS. They are your very best friend. And would you believe almost everything can be used with a command strip?


  • Towel bars
  • Toilet paper holders
  • Storage containers
  • Paper Towel holders
  • Broom and cleaning supply holders

The list goes on, and on, and on!

Here are just a few of my favorite Command Strip items we have working now:




The command strip key holder is a MUST for every camper. And this one with the container attached is awesome. We ended up using it so much that we also purchased a cell phone container to go next to it. This will be new for spring and I can't wait to use it!










We put command strips to serious work inside our cabinets. These are actually command strip storage baskets. We use them for silverware, soap, sponges and hand sanitizer.












On the other side we use these command strip hooks to hang storage bags, aluminum foil and saran wrap. Super handy!

We also use them to hang potholders, which were a surprising necessity.





One thing we always have at home is a hand towel to dry off your hands after washing them in the kitchen sink and it was driving me crazy that we didn't have one in the camper. Then I found this beauty! This 9" towel rack is perfect for the front of the refrigerator and it's just wide enough to help the towel dry quickly. We try not to use hooks for towels because they never dry properly.

















This rack with the attached bins is from Ikea and we used command strips to attach it to the wall. If you've ever tried to hang anything in a travel trailer, you know it's hard because you have to attach it to a stud.



New for spring as well is this toilet paper holder! We have always kept the TP out of reach because of the kids, but I'm a little too excited about this addition!






What are your favorite command strip ideas? I would love to hear them.

  1. Girl....you should have talked with me....I was one step ahead of you! I have command ALL OVER my camper!!! I bought the metal key holder....a little more sturdy for the keys. We actually have USB ports in the bunk beds, so I put up command bins next to the ports for the kids phones. And the best hack of all time is to turn a command hook upside down to hold the cover of the kitchen sink! Message me for a picture of that!!!

Camping Meal Planner #1

When we go camping on longer trips we like to make a meal plan. If we don’t, we inevitably forget something or eat out more than we should. I’m all about efficiency, so I try to choose meals that we can have leftovers for lunch or that can be turned into a new meal. I also try to prep and freeze as much as possible. I do them all the weekend before we leave and freeze them in a Ziploc bag to save space in the fridge. The most important thing about this tip is to freeze it flat so it saves space in the freezer and defrosts quickly. Monday Breakfast: Bacon, egg and cheese hash brown scramble Lunch: Italian pasta salad – delicious hard salami mixed with made-ahead penne, mozzarella and Italian dressing Dinner: Cheese-stuffed burgers – beef burgers stuffed with a square of white cheddar are frozen Tuesday: Breakfast: Pancakes and sausage Lunch: Leftover burgers Dinner: Fajitas – chopped bell peppers, onions and slicked chicken are mixed with taco seasoning and frozen flat.

Long-Weekend Meal Planner

We do a lot of long-weekend camping and while it's only a few days, we still like to mix it up with the food. This meal planner was made specifically for a beach trip with great local seafood, but if that isn't available where you are going, you could always bring frozen shrimp and make a different type of taco!  Thursday: Breakfast: bacon/pancake sticks Lunch: Ham and pimento cheese sammies Dinner:   Shrimp foil packets (corn red potatoes) Friday: Breakfast:   Egg and sausage rollups Lunch:   Shrimp salad sandwiches (from leftover shrimp) Dinner: Fish tacos Saturday:   Breakfast: Sausage and egg sammies Lunch: Hatch chile wrap s from Trader Joes Dinner: Pork BBQ (make ahead and freeze) and potato salad (from leftover shrimp boil) Sunday: Breakfast: French toast casserole (make ahead)
