The $5 Kmart hack caravanners swear by

The $5 Kmart hack caravanners swear by

There is nothing quite like hitting the open road with your caravan, with endless towns to visit and sights to take in.

But no matter where you travel, chances are that you are going to encounter some bumpy roads.

After stocking your caravan kitchen cupboards with various tumblers and wine glasses, the last thing you want is to have them break while rolling around in your cupboards.

To keep your crockery safe, caravanners recommend purchasing a $5 Kmart product before you start your trip.

Caravanners can purchase non-slip matting from Kmart, which can be cut to size depending on the purpose.

Another option is to buy small slabs of foam and cut out mug and bowl-sized holes.

And if you have any kitchen appliances, pack them in a drawer with towels to avoid any damage.

When you are travelling on rocky roads, it is also guaranteed that anything that is not sealed or stored properly will make a mess.

To avoid this surprise, put a rubber band around any item that can unravel or pop open, even toilet paper rolls. 

It is also important to make sure all cupboards and drawers are latched. To save space inside your caravan, also consider buying collapsible homewares that fold into themselves, such as collapsible washing up tubs.
