Road trips have never been as popular as they are right now. And for good reason. They help you conveniently explore your own state or region, staying footloose and fancy-free. Even if you will stay in hotels, however, packing and organizing your own travel “kitchen” will allow you to easily cook on the road, thus eliminating eating out or fetching take-out.
With packing cubes as your travel organization tool, bags won’t end up topsy-turvy in a trunk or on a back seat, they won’t tip and spill, they won’t tear with use, and you can even color code your supplies, snacks, and gear, then just pop it all into a wheeled duffel to get in and out of hotel rooms easily, or a convertible backpack duffel if you’re heading to a campsite.
How Many Travelers Need Food?
To get started with your own travel kitchen—one that works for road trips, camping, and more— consider what food you need based on how many travelers will need to be supplied. Also consider if this is a family road trip or camping vacation. This will help you pick out the cubes, sacs, and duffel that will best accommodate your travel kitchen needs for cooking, meal preparation, and eating.
How to Pack Your Travel Kitchen for Cooking Ease
With enough cubes and sacs, you can separate personal utensils, from cooking and serving utensils, from non-perishables, from perishable food items—color-coded naturally—so when tummies announce the arrival of mealtime, you can easily find what you need in your well-organized travel kitchen.
