First off, 6 more sleeps till the start of camping season! Yay!
Now that my excitement and countdown is out there, I can continue on with my storage solutions.
I would like to share with you how I organized my kitchen cupboards in my trailer.
I am very fortunate to have very deep cupboards. The wall is more than an arm’s length away from the cupboard, which allows me to store our toaster and coffee maker on the counter permanently.
A month or two ago I wrote about our shed design – here, here and here.
I was very lucky to have a friend of mine, who is a shop Teacher, build it for us with his class.
I wanted a shed that would be relatively lightweight and portable. It has made it’s journey home, but we have not assembled it yet. When we do, it will be at the campsite and I will document the assembly process – for those of you who are curious about the design.
In the meantime, I wanted to share with you how we spruced up the shed with outdoor chalkboard paint.
You realize how important organization is when you are spending several months of the year in a living space of 300 square feet.
But wait, it’s not only one person in the confined quarters – it’s 2 adults, 2 kids, 1 dog and 1 cat.
So, how do we
survive do it?
Well, I am a little OCD when in comes to organization and finding optimal storage solutions.
A perfect example is how I organize our drawers in the trailer.
Trailer storage solutions and organization is a hot topic for a lot of recreational vehicle enthusiasts.
We have owned 3 trailers in the past 10 years and with each trailer I have made it my goal to get the best use of space out of each nook and cranny. So much so that my camping friends have – let’s say – noticed!

Well, the weather has finally warmed up and we were able to spend some time outside today. We took advantage of the beautiful day and got a few things ready for the campsite.
One item on of our growing to-do list was toy organization and storage. We happily crossed that item off of our list today.
We have a door and a roof now!
I hate shopping and I have a minor case of undiagnosed OCD. Yep, that’s me in a nutshell!
It makes for a lovely situation when camping in a confined space with 3 other people and all of the
crap stuff that the four us have deemed as a necessity.
I cannot handle clutter in our trailer, so I get creative with storage solutions.
On a recent trip to IKEA, I picked up a few items to help contain the clutter.
I like to take this opportunity to introduce you to the newest member of our family – Mr. Shed.
I found this cute little DIY project a few months ago and I cannot wait to give it a try. I thought I would share the plans with you and hopefully it will brighten your day as it did mine.
