I used to have a small hard cover book that I wrote everything in....food, drinks, manchester, camping items, pot, pans, water containers etc and would tick them off as I went. I would take it away with me and every camp I would sit and look around to see what I could improve.....what I had forgotten etc…..it would all go into the book.
Now improvement did not necessarily mean taking more....sometimes it meant just swapping things about.
I had and still have my camping items totally separate to my 'home' items. Everything was packed into plastic boxes and just had to be packed into the vehicle before I left with the exception of perishables. I had boxes with different coloured lids for different items so that I knew what box it was in at a glance by the colour of the lid & it was all recorded in my book.
For example the small red box was always cutlery and the one with the red lid was crockery, cups, glasses etc. I had another one for pots; pans etc and it went on from there. Manchester was packed in one of those striped cheap plastic bags and when I got home and washed it ready for the next trip it was returned to the bag along with some naphthalene or similar.
The worst day camping still beats the best day working
