This inspired me to share with you some picnic packing tips and a quick & easy recipe for refreshing fruit-infused water. The best way to take advantage of the beautiful summer days, is to spend more time outside – whether that’s a hike, a beach trip or just a family cookout. And of course, don’t forget about the food.

Today, I thought I’d share a few picnic ideas along with tips for packing a lovely and functional picnic basket. This post is loaded with suggestions for packing the essentials, choosing picnic foods, and adding a few special touches so you’ll be ready for a picnic at a moment’s notice. Remember food safety: Make sure food has completely cooled before packing it up in containers. And don’t eat anything that has been left out in warm weather for longer than two hours, no matter how good it looks.

2. Pack foods in sealable containers to avoid spills and basket messes. This picnic items list is just what I normally do, but it can of course be tailored depending on your location and style. A good picnic packing list takes a little bit of preparation to throw together, but it’s so worth it! If you know what to bring to a picnic, you can transform your time from a half hour stop to a really fun multi-hour long. Use cool bags or an icebox -picnic hampers look lovely but often are heavy to carry whereas a coolbox/bags will keep food at the correct temperature to help avoid any risk of food poisoning.

Put small bottles of water, juice in the freezer for a few hours before the picnic if you have time. Set your tops aside. Add condiments to the rolls if you want any. Put on the fillings of your choosing.

Put the top layer onto the bottom half and cut the sandwiches apart on their natural edges. Then slide the sheet of sandwiches back into the package the rolls came in. Once you get to your picnic, just pull out what you need. Packing can seem like it’s pretty easy to do and something that only requires a box and things to put in it.

But to save time, energy and even money, we’ve come up with a packing tip list that will help you get things done with most being quick packing tips that are easy to do. Clever and easy ideas for how to pack a zero-waste picnic. Make your summer picnics more eco-friendly with these waste-free tips from Recyclebank.com.

  • This is not just for picnics. It can be used for long trips, pot lucks, take for Thanksgiving! I would even take it to work instead od sticking it in the company’s fridge. Thanks for sharing! �� ☕

  • These are very good thank you. I lost my jewelery for reasons of my packing and I didn’t have anywhere to put them. Now I’m at ease

  • I’m watching this because I’m going to Canandaigua day after tomorrow and I don’t have a suitcase and I have to use my school backpack and I literally take so many things LOL ��

  • I was just Googling this past week how to pack a picnic basket and was coming up empty! None would actually SHOW ME how to pack since I’d never been on one before. Now I know I need a special blanket AND I’m looking for that basket, too on Craigslist, even though the retail price is not that bad. I appreciate seeing the natural bug sprays too because I hate spraying myself with OFF I feel like I’m poisoning myself! Thank you so much for these tips, and you are just too cute!!

  • I’m sorry but why would you put our freaking shoes or dirty stanky shoes in the shower cap that goes on your head what in the world is wrong with y’all please y’all don’t do that just don’t that’s just stupid

  • There is no way that i am going to have time to fold all my clothes into a beautiful pattern/design like that. there is actually something called packing cubes or a duffle bag that i can use instead. but i like all your other videos. you have a great channel!

  • Oh but then you have to take stuff out what happens when you get there and you have to get something in the middle and you have to unravel everything

  • Cute little tutorial. The weed part kinda threw me off and made me a little uncomfortable, but still who am I to judge. Still nice vid, keep it up guys.:-)

  • Maybe if they just had actual outdoor gear they wouldn’t find themselves is such predicaments and having to resort to such ridiculous hacks concocted from random items.
    I mean, no cold weather gear, fire starter, or insulated water canisters but they have condoms, pencil sharpeners, and cling wrap……..������

  • you are a genius, my dear! you make sure you have everything and its so nice and neat. your family will be well fed. you are definitely on my “how to be a good wife, mom, and friend” list. thanks for being such a great inspiration Ms. Monique!

  • See now that doesn’t work because 3/4 of my tops are cropped and I barely wear pants on vacation I mostly wear shorts so rolling it into a burrito is near impossible

  • 5 minute crafts: easy hacks under 5 minutes
    Me: Oh yeah that’s cool
    5 minute crafts: now wait seven hours
    Me: yeah cause that makes sense
    Covid 19: it’s not like your ganna be any where

  • Okay, so you don’t bring extra blankets, but you bring hot glue and rolls of cling rap to go camping. And you bring a tampon instead of bandages.

  • See now that doesn’t work because 3/4 of my tops are cropped and I barely wear pants on vacation I mostly wear shorts so rolling it into a burrito is near impossible

  • Who needs to take off their underwear stop the girls like imagine if you just pee on your pants if you just as soon as you just took off your underwear Ewwwwwwww

  • You are adoreable! I just found you on YouTube, and so glad I did! I’ve already printed 3 of your recipes, and can’t stop watching your videos. I’ve also subscribed to your blog. Great, easy, quick, fun recipes and ideas. I love simple and easy recipes.Thanks for sharing and please keep up the great work!:)

  • These are very good thank you. I lost my jewelery for reasons of my packing and I didn’t have anywhere to put them. Now I’m at ease

  • You r such an inspiration…I work full time and a lot of my “cooking” involves picking up the phone and ordering something or stopping thru a drive thru but you are inspiring me to really start preparing dinners again!

  • So I’m going camping and find out there is mud in my water. Then out of no where the expect us to have a random water filter. Why don’t you just put your water in a bottle

  • Your videos r banging!! I love watching them and you really make me laugh and I so needed that today!! Keep up the wonderfully banging job!!

  • There is no way that i am going to have time to fold all my clothes into a beautiful pattern/design like that. there is actually something called packing cubes or a duffle bag that i can use instead. but i like all your other videos. you have a great channel!

  • I could totally relate, because I love rings also, but it seems like they just get in the way. People wonder why I rarely wear mine, at least you wear your bands…I usually don’t even wear those either…Maybeee once a month, I’ll throw my rings on.

  • Ok so most of these have nothing to really do with camping and they don’t keep you Warm or Safe at all and the pencil sharpener trick isn’t even a trick it’s just them using a pencil sharpener 12:10
