Before our trip out West in 2015, we outfitted our camper with several modifications and new storage solutions to streamline our three weeks on the road. One of the updates was creating a better system for storing the kids’ clothing. Previously we had simply packed their clothes in bins that we stored on the unused bunk, but things quickly became a disorganized mess in those bins.
When we decided earlier this year not to take the boat out of storage, the kiddos were disappointed about missing out on our family’s fun fishing trips. They were quickly appeased by the news that they would instead be able to do some fishing on our camping trips this summer. The only problem was that I didn’t have a really secure place to store the poles during our
Last week I shared about some of the new organizational and space-saving storage ideas we used in our camper on our summer West adventure. But I somehow overlooked one of the things that was key to keeping the kiddos’ clothes organized in the camper: our bunkhouse storage solution. Although we have a wardrobe in the bunkhouse area, we are using that space to organize linens/towels and to hide away

During the camper’s “Weight Loss Plan” I needed a solution for storing some of the awkward and greasy items that we keep in the pass-through storage compartment of our camper. Hot-dog sticks, pie irons, and weight distribution bars don’t store well and will often get grease and soot on anything they touch. After scrolling Pinterest I thought the best solution would be to “hang” these items either
As I was packing things up for our camping trip this past weekend, I came across a stash of fast food condiments–which reminded me of some other sample-sized products I had been saving for our travels. We love using samples because they reduce what we have to take in the camper, both in weight and space. This used to be particularly important when we had a
As we prepared for our Disney trip and continue to look ahead to our West trip later this year, we are trying to find ways to save space both in the camper and our van. The most obvious way is to reduce what we take with us and to be very intentional about what we do bring. But for the rest of the “stuff,” creative
