- Consider which items you regularly store in your fridge that you could keep in your freezer.
- Repackage pre-packaged foods. Resealable bags are great for repackaging foodstuffs to eliminate extra packaging, oddly-shaped molded plastics. They are also great for storing left overs.
- When purchasing plastic containers for your kitchen, strongly consider getting square and rectangular containers. These utilize space much more efficiently than the more common round containers.
- Carrots and onions for cooking can be presliced so that all you have to do is open the bag and dump them in, which saves your limited water while boondocking.
