We do car camping, not backpacking. I would Not suggest this for backpacking! ;)
Before we left home we emptied my husband's tool box and made it our kitchen cupboard.
We set this on the bench at the end of the picnic table. The camp stove always sits at the end of the picnic table so having this sit right there while we cooked was Handy. All four people in our family agreed that this was a big step up from the bins we usually use. At night, we stored it in the truck along with the food.
