Mum freaks out after sharing her amazing Kmart camping setup – but eagle-eyed Australians can’t get over one ‘unsafe’ detail
- The mum of thousands wowed after sharing her adorable camping setup at Kmart
- But some were unimpressed by the idea that she might be cooking or heating in the tent
The mum of thousands wowed after sharing her adorable camping outfit with Kmart items ahead of the Easter long weekend, but eagle-eyed Australians just can’t get over the fact that she keeps the kettle and stove inside her tent because it’s not safe.
The woman, named Katie, posted to Facebook, where she shared photos of her “Camping Dining Room.”
Katie writes: “When you land somewhere between camping and glamping, and it’s likely made by Kmart… this is our ‘camping’ dining room.”
The mum wowed thousands after sharing her amazing camping setup using Kmart items before the long Easter break, but some didn’t like one small detail.
The tent includes various items from Kmart, such as large modular storage drawers ($19), pantry labels, water dispenser, kids’ barbecues, camping tables, and small logs for seating.
The drawers are divided into sections such as ‘meals’, ‘crockery and cutlery’, ‘snacks’, ‘cooking utensils’ and ‘towels and toiletries’.
Katie said that while she only started camping this year, she’s “obsessed with organization” and so she can’t wait to make sure she and her family are perfectly organized for the week away.
While thousands liked the organization, a few pointed out that it should not cook or use a kettle inside the tent (setup pictured).
While many were impressed with the setup, writing things like “This is awesome” and “You look like pro campers,” there were a few who resented the fact that it stores a small grill and kettle inside the tent.
One woman wrote: “Please do not use the cooking stove and kettle in the area.”
Another posted: “Not sure I’d be grilling indoors.”
But Katie was quick to jump to her defense, writing: ‘I said dining room, not kitchen. We don’t cook here.’
She explains that she keeps all the equipment there so they are easy to access, and then takes them outside when they need to cook or boil the kettle.
The mum admitted that it’s her “eating area” and not her kitchen so she always brings those things outside when she wants to cook (area pictured)
Others were more concerned about the logistics, and how she managed to move her dining room down the road.
Curious how to move drawers full of stuff? As in do they stay closed when moving/driving or do you add things when setting up camp? one person asked.
Katie replies, “Just put duct tape on it and the drawers won’t come out when moving.”
However, the vast majority were amazed at “how easy” this setup was to unpack and fill.
‘You look amazing!’ Kmart should be using these in their catalog. Looks great, one person wrote.
