How many times have you been camping and have been at a loss for storage options? Where on earth are you supposed to put those pots and pans when they’re not being used? Yes, you couple pop them back in the car, but if they’re wet from being washed, they’re going to leave puddles of soapy water all over the place.
This is where the belt comes in handy. Simply fasten the belt around a nearby tree, hang a few S-hooks onto the sides and there you have it, the perfect place to hang your pots and pans when they’re not being used.
This is the perfect way to prove just how resourceful you can really be on a camping trip, too. But it’s not just the pots and pans that you can hang from this makeshift-shelf, you can also hang your mugs, cloths or anything else that you can hang up and get out of the way. Just remember to place your pots facing down so no insects or other critters make their way inside.
