Plastic Plates For Camping

To save money and the environment, I purchased "picnic" plates from the Dollar Tree. They are made of thin plastic, making them easy/light to pack. This is much cheaper than using foam or paper. I also purchased two plastic dish pans to be used to wash them at the campsite. Just heat a little of water, use one for washing and the other to rinse. When packing, these fit nicely in the bottom of a tote and the dishes can then be stacked inside.

Frisbees make great heavy duty plates/serving plates also, and sometimes you can get them free at festivals and other events.
