Organize your RV and safely travel with these must-know ideas for using dollar store items.

dish dry bag and fruit & vegetable bag storage
HACK 1: MESS BAGS So, you did the environmentally-responsible thing and brought your own plates and cookware. Great! But, what happens when you need to wash and dry these items? Toss them in a mesh bag hung from a tree branch, and, voila, dry dishes. OR you can use the bag to hang your fruit & veggies to keep them off your countertop.
pool noodles for knife blade covers and slide covers
HACK 2: POOL NOODLES Cover up hazardous knife blades with a foam pool noodle. OR cut a long slit into one and install it on your slide bottoms so you don’t require stitches on the top of your head from hitting it.
glow bracelets for awning stake for night time safety
HACK 3: GLOW BRACELETS Add glow bracelets to your tent or awning stake for night time safety. Tripping over them isn’t. Pick up some cheap glow-in-the-dark bracelets and string them along the stakes to prevent faceplants when the sun sets.
dry erase board for messages
HACK 4: DRY ERASE BOARD What are we doing today? What’s our campsite number? Who is going fishing? Grocery list? Answer all of these questions and more by using a small dry-erase board as a campsite message board. This comes in handy, particularly with large groups.
