Tips to Plan the Perfect Memorial Day Picnic

Posted by: Storganization Staff Tags: Summer, Home Organization, Kitchen, Pantry

Memorial Day weekend is the perfect time to host a picnic since the weather is warmer, the grass is greener and everyone can’t wait to get outside. However, while having a picnic is fun, sometimes the preparation can be a lot of work. Here are some planning tips to keep your Memorial Day organized and hassle-free!

 

Picnic Prep

A successful picnic starts with extra organization. Prepare by storing all materials and ingredients in one place a few days before your picnic destination. Nothing’s worse than arriving to realize you forgot key ingredients or even worse, silverware!

Create an easy-to-access place in the pantry, so when it’s time for your picnic, you’ll have everything you need.

A Cup O’ Salad

For a fresh treat, make salads in a cup! Not only is this idea healthy and fun, but it also eliminates the need for a salad bowl and tongs. Just place a fork in the top and you are ready to go!

Your Easiest Snack Bag

No need to transport bowls when you can transform your bag into one! Simply roll down the top of the bag to create a rim. With this trick, your sleeves will be crumb free and you can eliminate extra items from your packing list.
