When going on a picnic, here is a thrifty way to cover food to keep those pesky bugs from enjoying your lunch too. Instead of buying those expensive plastic food covers, purchase shower caps from your local Dollar Tree. They work perfect and are very cheap. You can get 15 shower caps for $1.00.

While it is true that the caps keep the bowls covered, the plastic coverd bowls can be stacked and it they turn over there are no spills. I think they are worth the money because they last a long time.
Whenever I host a picnic or other outdoor event that involves food I cover the table with the food with a piece of nylon net that is bought at a fabric store for very cheap. You can see all the food right thru it and easily flip if up to serve yourself and flip it back down to cover things up again. It washes up with no effort in the washer afterwards!
