The Camper’s Grocery Express Lane

These tips will have you in and out of the grocery faster than a runaway cart.

  • Ask as soon as you enter the store where to find peanut butter, dried fruit, energy bars, and jerky. The locations of these foods vary among stores.
  • Look for foods packed in resealable bags so you don’t waste time at the trailhead repackaging items into zipper-lock bags.
  • Make sure that all items have price tags at small stores that don’t have scanning registers.
  • Take your food stuff sacks into the store. Bag your own groceries, putting the resealables directly into the stuff sacks.
