SMALL SPACE LIVING – ORGANIZATION IS A MUST

Posted on Updated on

When you live full-time in an RV, or even just enjoy the occasional getaway, you understand the importance of organization.  When living in such a small space, organization is not only a desire it’s a must!  Below is a list of how you can best organize your RV:FullSizeRender

  • Bins, bins and more bins!

Big bins, small bins, tall bin, short bins, clear bin… you get the idea.  Bins are a great way to create extra storage space while still maintaining a visually appealing space.

  • Mini-Sized Appliances

FullSizeRender (1)Rather than taking up valuable real estate (aka, COUNTER SPACE) with big, bulky appliance, opt for the small, more compact version of the same thing.  For instance, instead of using a full-size coffee pot get a mini coffee pot instead.

  • Downsize

This one seems like a no-brainer but it’s harder then you may think.  You don’t need to have a 20 piece dishware set, at least most of us don’t. The more stuff you tote around, the more stuff you have to find a spot for.  When it comes to RV living, less is more!

  • FullSizeRender (3)Closet Space

This one may be hard for most women. You cannot fit your walk-in closet wardrobe into your RV.  Although space is limited, there is one way to expand your closet space… and no, it isn’t to take over your spouse’s side (as tempting as that may be).  Rather, there are “drop-down hangers” that create 6x more close space!

  • Utilize all those Little Nooks and Crannies

Organization is not just applying your label maker masterpieces all over your RV but instead making the most out of the space you have.  Find those unused spaces behind your captain’s chair or up in a loft area. If it is not an area that is being utilized for everyday use, use it for storage.

  • Making the Most of your Storage Compartments

This is where your label maker could come in handy.  Keeping your storage compartments organized will not only save you space but it will also save your sanity.  Keep similar things together so that they’re easier to find.

  • FullSizeRender (2)The Walls are your Friend

RV Living is a great excuse to utilize all of those neat little Pinterest hacks you’ve found.  Such as the wall mount planter used as a fruit basket.  You’d be amazed at how many neat organization solution you can find online. Don’t be shy, give them a try!

  • Collapsible is the Way to Go

Who needs full-sized when you can have collapsible? They’ve come up with everything from trash cans to colanders. Not only do collapsible items save space but let’s face it, they’re awesome!

This list is just the tip of the iceberg. What tips do you have for RV organization?  Please share below!
