Clutter Issues in Your RV?

Storage space can be difficult to maneuver whether you are a weekend RVer or a full-timer.  With everything we bring along with us to knickknacks we pick up along the way, there always seems to be a little less room than we need.  While we do our best to keep things tidy and in order, it can become very difficult to achieve this goal.  So when we find us in this situation, it becomes important to come up with some efficient ways to make the best of your space.  I compiled a couple tips to help you out with the clutter in your RV.

1.  Think vertical. Find ways to use space vertically in your RV. Try reorganizing your cabinets and closets that utilize the space vertically.

2.  Removable adhesive hooks might be our most favorite invention in the last couple of years. They do wonders organizing utensils, hanging small boxes to organize papers and the best part, they don’t do any damage when you’re done with them.

3.  Multi-use containers – try to find items that can be used for more than just one thing.

4.  Collapsible Storage Containers – these are great to use when you’re doing laundry, but when you’re done they collapse and don’t take up much room.

5.  One In, One Out Rule – this is a pretty good rule that has helped keep our RV with minimal clutter. When you bring something new into the RV, something must go!

6.  Use non-slip liners to keep your stuff in place and from sliding all over the place and getting messy.

7.  Clean out the RV four times a year if you’re a full time RVer. I know this sounds like a lot, but with your best efforts, stuff will still add up.

8.  Get some Space Bags to store items that are seasonal – these are the giant bags that you vacuum air out of and will save tons of closet space.

9.  If you haven’t used an item in a year, toss it. Or rather, donate it. Chances are if you haven’t used something in a year you won’t be missing it.

10.  Put all of your cleaning supplies in a basket. This will keep them secure as well as travel very handy when you need to clean different parts of the RV.

As useful as these tips are, you will need to keep an eye on the weight of your RV.  It is important that you do not exceed the maximum weight guidelines for the safety of you and others on the road.  Do you have any other organizing tips for the rest of the readers?  Leave a comment below and let us know!
