Dollar Tree Camping Hack - Gear Ties.

Dollar Tree Camping Hack - Gear Ties.

Butterbean and I just returned from an amazing weekend campout! While gathering our gear for the trip, I came upon an interesting item in our Dollar Tree that I thought might have MacGyver-like qualities out at the campsite.

A pack of hair rollers. Seriously. They make excellent and cheap gear ties. They are essentially strong wire looped onto protective plastic end caps all sandwiched in a foam tube. I tried taking one apart to make DIY earplugs with the foam. That effort was a bust. But the gear tie use is stellar.

Any other creative ideas for using these bendy things while car camping or out on the trail? Leave some comments below!
