Going on a picnic? Here are some must-do's.

Summer is picnic time. However, a good picnic must be planned and not left to chance. Here are a few tips that could make the trip a little easier.

Decide on a picnic destination and stick to it. It would be difficult if not infuriating to keep on changing destination. The enthusiasm for a particular place might also be placed in doubt. As such, announce the destination beforehand and gather input from friends and family members. That way, no one would feel left out or let down.

Determine the budget for transportation and other non-food expenses. The rule is to always have extra. As such, determine what it would cost to go to a particular place and add on as much as 50 percent of the whole amount to the money you'd like to spend. Peace of mind after all, is part of a picnic adventure.

Preparing food or not? It's best to determine whether you'd like to bring along food to a picnic or just stop at one place where you could pick up supplies. Although the latter is easier and should be the case for impromptu picnics; the former is nonetheless what a picnic is all about - good food, prepared on site.

Speaking of cooking be sure to schedule cooking ahead of time. Plan the menu beforehand as well so that much needed supplies could be stocked and other preparations made.

Think plastic. Sure, you've heard stories of Englishmen in the jungle having dinner with all the accouterments. Chuck that. Instead, opt for plastic spoons, paper plates and cups. That way, washing dishes could be eliminated and the load will definitely be lighter when going home.

Bring a styrofoam box. This would come in handy for storing beverages and other coolers. Plus! The box might also come in handy for storing things - especially foodstuffs - you'd most probably buy along the way home for pasalubong.

What about junk food? Keep them to a minimum. Although, chips, candy and softdrinks are handy to carry along and easy to eat on the road; there's nonetheless no substitute for more substantial fare. What to serve? Try sandwiches. Better yet bring bread (and crackers) and a selection of spreads.

Bring utensils and condiments. There's simply no excuse for forgetting to bring a can opener, a knife or two, bottle openers and a plastic trash bag. Also, try not to forget bringing the condiments that would make dining at a picnic even more pleasurable.
