wondering if this is a good idea

My wife and I only get out on weekends but enjoy it. I have noticed that she is always buying mustard and mayo for sandwiches when she shops on the way to the rig...(forgetting we have 3 or 4 of each in the home fridge) ???
My idea is to purchase the individual packets of Mustard, mayo, katchup, parmasean cheese and any other item that can be left in the rig without refrigeration.
What are your thoughts?

For a weekend rig I don't see any problems with it.

I use my rig mostly on the weekends also and just after 6 month decided to buy double of everything so i can leave the items in the coach things i have for example is: shaving cream, shavers, condements in foil packages, paper towles, soap shampoo, electric razor, some over the counter meds ie asprin, toothpast and brushes, and cleaning supplies and towles, etc. so now i dont have to keep buying things when we get to where we are going beacuse we cant forget them now. makes life easier now

Next time you stop at Burger King's, I'd stock up after buying a Whopper....I like LOTS of condiments on my burger.

She likes to take care of you! Maybe you should just put a lot more mustard and mayo on your sandwiches.... Just kidding. Happy weekends on the road!

Thanks JIMBOOTH25 for your responce...I do have multiple items at both home and rig...The condiments I was talking about need to be refridgerated after opening so we can not leave in the rig when we store it at the storage yard (no power to keep fridge cold)I thought these do not need to be refridgerated and will keep supply in cabinet in zip lock bags

I am not sure how big a problem this is, but we have had some condiment packs burst in the motorhome while it was in storage for the winter (covered, in FL). Granted these were those that come with fast food you dump out of the bag and throw in a drawer and then do not use, but we guessed the heat was an issue.

I think it sounds like a good solution, and she will feel better too knowing she doesn't have to remember everything. If you are worried about them bursting, keep them in a shoebox size plastic container. Also check and see if they have a high temp limit - you always could take them back and forth with you and she still would not have to worry about buying each time.

Safe travels!

When I unload the fridge after a trip I put the condiments and salad dressings in our old "second fridge" which is kept in our garage (AKA the Beer Fridge). Gathering the goodies is easy each weekend.

Also, I pay premium prices for certain condiments at touristy convenience stores just for the small sizes they come in; and refill them as needed.

We have some collapsible milk crates. Before shopping for a trip, we shop in the house. Fill the crate w/mustard, mayo, pickles, etc., open the freezer & grab what looks like it'll work for the trip, and start a list for the store.
We also take the partial bread loaf, salad stuff, etc. that's just going to spoil in the home fridge or if left too long anyway.
Then we go to the pantry for pasta, canned goods, etc.
After all, weekend trips are just like any other day as far as eating goes, and most of us stock food in the house.
Shortens the list of stuff needed for the trip, saves on spoilage all around. When we get home, we pop open the collapsible crate again & unload the fridge/freezer back to the house.

Frequently our first night out is a baked chicken from the store, or if the first leg is several hours, D.W. puts some chicken in the crock pot & the inverter/crock cooks while I drive.

How about a checklist of "things to bring to the RV for the weekend". Obviously you remember to bring food, but maybe a list of other things like condiments, butter, etc. would help. Putting all that stuff in a carton or ziplock and keeping in one place is another big help for packing.
