It’s our 6th anniversary and we would like to thank you all for helping to make
Thinking back to when and why we started this business, I am reminded of when we first moved into our motor home planning to live full time and spend the rest of our lives traveling this beautiful country. Getting ready to sell our home and its contents we loaded into the motor home all the things we thought we needed and some things we thought we wanted to take with us…WHAT A MISTAKE! Within 90 days I was going crazy being unable to find things we wanted and knew we had. Having to empty drawers, cabinets, closets and basement bays to find what we were looking for is the very thing most of us who live or travel in an RV struggle with. I told Mike either we find some solutions or I wouldn’t be able to continue our dream. And after several years of research, organizing the motor home (a never ending project as I discover new ways to save space and make our lives easier)and filling my need to help others, we started the business to share the tips, ideas and products with others. And neither of us have regretted it for a minute. As time has gone on, I started giving seminars and then this newsletter was born. I hope you enjoy it and I get many, many great comments on the seminars I give.
As I stated last week, January is typically Organizing Month and I am always looking for new ways to make life easier and simple without taking up space.
Great Tip: A tip similar to this was submitted by an attendee of one of my seminars several years ago with her tip being: When you leave your RV for a day or several hours, write on a white board where you are going and when you plan to return. In case of an emergency others would be able to have a starting point. Another seminar attendee suggested something very much like this photo and is an excellent idea as if you had an emergency while in you RV and needed emergency help, you may not know the address of where you are staying. Just make sure you change the information as you travel.
Tip to TRY: Kill Those Ants…I haven’t tried this and don’t know if it works but many have reported that it does and since it is so simple and you probably already have the ingredients, it’s certainly worth a try! http://www.hometalk.com/17429659/kill-ants-instantly-natural-diy-spray-?se=fol_new-20170107-1&date=20170107&slg=d6ac1c5aa0b3da94aa1acd2fd20265b9-15287402.
Great Reader Tip: TWILIGHT SAFETY
Walking at sunrise or sunset can be peaceful and invigorating for both the body and the soul.
However, low light conditions can be dangerous. Here are a couple of tips to stay safe while enjoying your walk.
- Wear light or white clothing so you are easily visible to drivers.
Fluorescent colors actually appear dark in low light.
- Choose shoes, jackets, and safety vests with retro-reflective patches
that shine in headlights.
3..Carry a flashlight and keep it on so drivers will see it. If possible carry it
on the “street side” for better visibility to the driver.
- Remove your sunglasses at dusk so you can see anything that might
This tip was sent in by reader Danise…thanks so much.
Another note from Danise: For Walking your Dog: There are many leashes, collars, etc. that are reflective as well.
We have recently saw a collar that had flashing red LED lights all the way around. We recently bought one at Mud Bay for our dog, that looks like a tube.. It comes in one size fits all, and you just cut off the excess, then slip on and off the dogs head as needed. It also came in blue and neon green. We chose the green one as being more visible.
