Good Morning…can you believe it is only 16 days until Christmas. What do you do as an RVer for the holiday? Are you living full time in your RV? Do you stay home until after Christmas and then become a Snowbird? Do you and your family spend the weekend at an RV Park not too far away from home? Do you have family that comes to visit wherever you are? While we live full time in our RV, some years we stay at our home base which is near our family, some years they come to us which is what is happening this year in the San Diego area and other years we fly home for a week or so. We always are in southern California the first of January as we are exhibitors at the WHMA FMCA Rally in Indio. Hope to see many of you there. We so love to see friends as we travel.
TIP: Purge, purge, purge and donate things you no longer use, things you put in your RV that you never use and clothes you don’t wear or that don’t fit, shoes you don’t wear (or don’t need). Sadly we all purchase things we’re sorry about later or things that we think are a good idea at the time we buy them and turn out not to be so. Don’t let your RV become cluttered with these things. Its a win-win-win. 1) You get rid of clutter. 2) Someone else can use them. 3) You get a tax write-off. Being organized is not a one time thing but an ongoing process for us all. Here is a great article to read on the subject. http://organizingmadefun.blogspot.com/2015/11/3-simple-steps-to-staying-organized.html.
Great Idea I Read: Go through your pantry, kitchen food cabinet,s fridge and freezer and make a list of what you have. Post it on the wall close to your shopping list. When you are making your shopping list, you know the items you already have. We have started doing this and boy has it helped. No longer do we have 6 cans of tomatoes and 3 of black beans and none of the refried beanswe needed for a meal this week!
Effectively shield much of your stove and it’s surrounding environment by using this screen. Works great for frying or browning things on the stove. Also works great for mixing batters to keep from splattering. You get 3 hinged panels each measuring 10-inch by 9-inch /25-1/2cm by 23cm. Folds flat for easy storage. Durable nonstick finish for easy cleaning. Hand wash. We have 2 of these and boy do they work to keep spatters off the walls when cooking. They also work great when mixing flour into a recipe to keep the dust contained. https://rvspacesavers.com/shop/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=163
******Don’t forget to have any orders to us by the 10th if any of your order is Christmas Gifts. The mail is already slow. We had a 2 day Priority package that was to have been delivered on Monday and still hasn’t arrived. We don’t want you to be disappointed that your order didn’t arrive on time so please get them in within the next couple of days. http://www.rvspacesavers.com/shop/
