Tips and Ideas from RV Space Savers

Happy Thanksgiving and Greetings from Palm Springs Thousand Trails.  The park is furnishing the turkeys and we are all bringing traditional dishes to share in the fellowship of Thanksgiving. Even living in an RV,  I also do a turkey dinner for just Mike and I, with all our favorites, as we love the leftovers as much as the dinner itself.  Our little RV oven does a fine job on a turkey breast! We hope you have a wonderful day filled with many things to be thankful for.The park is quite empty but I imagine right after the holidays it will fill up fast and surely will be full for the FMCA Rally in Indio starting January 9th and several golf tournaments starting right after the first of the year. I held a seminar on Tuesday afternoon at the Rec Room which was very well attended and have plans to give several more on different space saving ideas while we’re here for the winter.  Seems most of us have issues with space and ways to save it on our rigs.

We dodged a bullet over the weekend as they predicted high winds starting an hour before the Street Fair closed but thankfully they missed us.  Our prayers go out to all those around the country who have been having such nasty weather already and those who got caught traveling in it.

Tip of the Week:

Spend some time going through your paperwork. Think of this?  500 sheets of Bond paper (17 x 22 inches) weigh 20 lbs, then a ream of paper cut to Letter size will be labeled as 20 lb. And if 500 sheets of Cover paper (20 x 26 inches) weigh 65 lbs, then a ream of this paper trimmed to tabloid size would be marked as 65lb.  How many sheets of paper are you carrying in your rig?

How much of it do you really need?  How much of it can you find somewhere else if you needed to refer to it?  Do you really need to save all those magazines?  Can you tear out the articles you really want to read.or can you read the article online?

Scanner

Can you scan your receipts and keep them on

Thumb drives

thumb drives or on the Cloud.

Cloud

I remember hearing when computers first came out that we would do away with paper!  What a joke that turned out to be.  Small portable scanners are fairly inexpensive and take up very little space.  Think about getting one and quit carrying around all that paper.

Also books are heavy.Can you read them online, your Smartphone, Kindle, laptop or notebook?

And think of all the space you would save besides the weight!  Be honest with yourself and do this with your traveling partner.  Things that may be important to one, may not be to the other.  But I guarantee you if you are honest with yourselves you will be able to create some new space.  Here’a a post to help you get started thinking about how to start your project.  http://www.lifetimemoms.com/how-to/8-ways-to-get-a-handle-on-paper-clutter  And here is a great article on what to keep and what to toss. http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/2010/03/conquer-the-paper-piles/index.htm.

Tip from a Customer:  Once you de-seed pomegranates you can freeze them.  She freezes them on a cookie sheet so they don’t stick together and when frozen puts them in Ziplock bags to use when they aren’t in season.  I have some in the freezer so will let you know how they turn out when I use them.  I can taste these great little bursts of fruit in a salad, dip or salsa.

New Products of the Week: These two new products are great for those holiday parties, RV get togethers, parties and make great gifts.

A special thank you to all our military personnel fighting for our freedom and especially those families who can not be with their loved ones during the holiday season.

NOTE:  All orders need to reach us by December 10th to insure you will receive them in time for Christmas

As I begin the newsletter this week, I am asking everyone to continue to pray for the families and town of Roseburg, Oregon to help them start the healing process of the horrific tragedy that struck their community this week.

Sometimes the tips I give are not just about saving space in your RV but for RVer’s  in general which is the case this week.

IMPORTANT TIP:  October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month so please be sure to call and schedule your mammogram this month.  Hense the title for the newsletter!  While breast cancer is much more prominent in women, it also affects men (they are 100 times less likely to be diagnosed than women).  And guys reading this, please advise your spouse, girlfriend, sister, mother, aunts and nieces to schedule theirs as well.  Caught early, it is very curable in most cases.  So please don’t put it off.

 

Reader Tips:  As one of our faithful readers, Danise sent in some great tips to share.

Have been doing some down-sizing/ fall cleaning in my RV and came across a couple of things that made me think I should share.

 1.  We all need more storage, particularly in small bathrooms, eh?  Both of us are short so we can get away with this…. we got a 2nd small medicine chest (from Ikea) and put up on the blank wall above the potty.    Gives us a bit of extra space and also a 2nd mirror.  I store my tall hair spray, medicated talc powder, a couple of other tall items there, and with the small space above that, I store the chemicals I need for the potty. I can use the original cabinet above the sink  with 3 shorter spaces for smaller items. 

This might also work for some of you.  http://www.amazon.com/products-3772w-cabinet-toilet-shelving/dp/b000h8u51o?tag=indifash06-20.  (Gail)

   2.  I use mini bungie cords and very small eye screws in this extra space to hold the tall containers in place, and a narrow plastic basket on the upper shelf to hold the chemicals. 

 Danise

Thanks so much for sharing Danise.  These are all great ideas and ones I’m sure a lot of us can use.  Do you have tips to share?  Please email me at rvspacesavers@gmail.com

SAFETY TIP:  Be sure to keep track of the age and wear of your tires.   And keep them covered when you are sitting in a park or they are parked in your yard.   Here is a great article on tire safety.     http://www.edmunds.com/car-care/how-old-and-dangerous-are-your-tires.html.   When buying tires for any vehicle know how to check the date codes as there have been several places selling “new” 8-12 year old tires!

We are on the road heading for the Best RV Show http://www.thebestrvshow.com/.  It is being held in Pomona, CA at the Fairplex October 9-18th.  I will be giving seminars every day on Space Saving Tips and one on Living in Your RV.  Hope if you plan to attend you will stop by our booth and attend one of the seminars.  The weather down I-5 is gorgeous with the trees donning their autumn colors.  When we travel from point A to  point B, we sometimes stay overnight at Wal-Mart but always call ahead to make sure it is OK.  This trip every Wal-Mart in Oregon we have called has told us that new City ordinances forbid overnight parking.  Wal-Mart is still fine with it but told us to expect a knock on the door from the police.  This is exactly what has ruined it for those of us who don’t abuse the privilege. This was parked at a rest stop 20 miles north of the California border.  Bikes and junk sitting out all around the camper.  No state workers in sight so have no idea how long they have been there.  I totally understand that with this economy, people are hurting and they do need a place to stay but this can’t be safe for anyone.

New Product:  We have been having so much fun with this new product. Laser Lights can be used in tons of different ways.

Laser Lights from RV Space Savers

We first bought them to use in our booth as a way to be recognized in a long row of vendors and we continue to use them for that.  However, we had so many requests to sell them that we now carry them and have done some other fun things with them.  While they are not to be used in inclement weather, we use them in RV Parks to shine up in the trees at night or on the side of the motor home (people comment that they look like fire flies).  We have had reports of people using them inside on their Christmas trees, for  light shows in an auditorium, in an exercise class, at parties and outdoor functions and for something for their cats to play with.  https://rvspacesavers.com/shop/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=151

Great Places To Visit:  Our friend Danise reports a new “Great Place to Visit” and one I am anxious to see.  It is called the 9/11 Spirit of America Memorial in Cashmere, WA.  She has had the pleasure of visiting the new site and says it is well worth going out of your way to see.  Here are a couple of links about the Memorial. http://www.911spiritofamericamemorial.com/  and http://www.king5.com/story/news/local/2015/05/11/town-gets-911-memorial-the-state-didnt-want/27155383/.

Tips and Ideas from RV Space Savers

One of the things we love most about traveling and living in our RV is the wonderful people we meet and how helpful most people are.  Loving to share, whether it’s a tip or idea, an appetizer or pot luck dish, these are the things that make up our wonderful RV community.  I love to see guys all clustered around someone who seems to be having trouble with their RV or toad to offer any help they can or neighbor helping neighbor in an RV Park if the need arises.  It so reminds me of how we grew up as children, in smaller communities where everyone helped everyone else.  What is your favorite tip for small spaces?  Do you have a unique idea or tip to share with others on how you make the space in your RV work best for you?  Please let us hear from you.

I apologize for no newsletter last week and being so late this week.  I have been having some computer issues for the past couple of weeks.  There was a chance that I had a virus on my computer and I certainly didn’t want to be spreading it around.  Luckily it wasn’t a virus, just my anti-virus software cranking up their site with so many viruses out there and trying to protect my computer.

TIPS:

ORGANIZATION   One of my favorites and one I get asked a lot about.  How do I organize this, how can I save space in the bathroom, the bedroom and the kitchen.  I try to give lots of these kinds of tips in my seminars.  Purging and baskets are my 2 favorite solutions.

Both are “freeing” by ridding yourself and your RV of things you don’t use and your mind of clutter.  Here’s a

great link to a short article on 5 Reasons Why Organizing is FUN (well maybe that’s going a little to far)!  http://organizingmadefun.blogspot.com/2015/09/5-reasons-why-organizing-is-fun.html#more

Here is another great article on Organizing.  Some of which will work great in an RV.  http://www.goodhousekeeping.com/home/tips/g2610/best-organizing-tips/?slide=4

One of our readers and customers sent me this article.http://food52.com/blog/13912-the-best-way-to-store-lettuces-other-greens-a-controversial-method.  Thanks Marijke.  I find it very interesting and would love to try it.  However having an RV fridge, I am only able to use my salad spinner to spin the greens and then put it away.  After reading the article I thought I should address the Produce Keepers and all the things you can do with them.

For those of you who have them, they work great to keep lettuce and greens for long periods of time.  Baby spinach for up to 5 weeks, romaine lettuce up to 4 weeks.  Do not wash before storing and follow the directions for each type of produce you are using it for as to how much air and moisture each needs.  I have 3 small ones in my fridge at all times and use them for everything.  Right now I have one filled with mini cucumbers (3 week old ), one with radishes (2 weeks old) and one with spinach (going on 4 weeks).  While they work wonderfully for berries, you can use them for tons of different kinds of produce.  One of our customers uses the 4 qt. keeper to keep bananas from browning and just sets it on the counter (don’t refrigerate bananas). We’re not great banana eaters but I have tried it and Mike ate the last banana on the 8th day and it hadn’t turned brown.  There are 2 sizes of keepers: A 4 quart and a 2 quart.  For those who have an RV fridge like we do, the small ones work best as the 4 qt. will only fit on the top shelf.  For those who have residential fridges, the 4 quart works great.  https://rvspacesavers.com/shop/index.php?route=product/product&path=35&product_id=77.

New Product:  Small Fiskie    We started carrying these this winter but I don’t think I’ve ever told you about them.

Made of silicone and heat resistant up to 400 degrees, this is a fork and whisk combined.  Great space saver. Quickly whisk, stir, blend and mix.  Incorporate air into eggs or cream. Use it to fold whipped cream into recipes. Perfect to mix protein drinks. Transfer food to a plate. Scoop and drain.  Safe for nonstick and glass.  They sold like hotcakes at the FMCA Rally in Pomona and I have had lots of great comments about them.  Being able to get rid of those wire whisks that take up so much space is a real plus with this tool. https://rvspacesavers.com/shop/index.php?route=product/product&path=35&product_id=150

Tip from customer:  Mouse wasn’t responding properly.   Took it apart… wiped ball with rag/alcohol.  Cleaned inside of mouse w/q tip, dipped in alcohol.  …. wiped mouse pad w/same rag/alcohol.   All working well now.  Great tip…thanks Danise.

 

Great Places To Visit:  There are so many gorgeous places to visit in the fall when the colors are changing.

Here is a link to 21 of the Most Spectacular (according to BozzFeed).  http://www.buzzfeed.com/anniedaly/21-insanely-beautiful-spots-to-see-fall-colors-across-americutm

Tips and Ideas for RVer’s and Saving Space

Share Button

We hope you are enjoying your summer and not in any danger of the horrible fires raging in the west.  I read an article some time ago that Rver’s should practice being able to pack up and be ready to move in 10 minutes or less.  In case there is an emergency, we need to be able to move in a hurry.  Could we do it?  Yes we could but things would be in a state of disarray until we could get somewhere to get organized.  Do we practice…sadly no we don’t.  But we have discussed it and would just unhook, pull the slides in and go.  Whatever was outside would just have to stay.  It is something to think about no matter where you are traveling, there can be almost any kind of emergency.  I found these apps several years ago and have chosen to download several of them on my phone.  I then have my phone set up to send me alerts if there is some weather emergency.  And I have had it send warnings several times regarding tornadoes when we were in Gillette, WY in 2012 for the FMCA and Escapade Rallies.  Here is the app:   http://www.redcross.org/prepare/mobile-apps.  Living and traveling in an RV can be a blessing or a curse in a weather emergency and it’s good to carry a NOAA weather radio.  There are apps for both Android and Iphones but read the reviews before you purchase.

New Tip:  Keep No More Than 30 Tops  I posted this tip on our Facebook RV Space Savers page the other day.  http://www.thriftyfun.com/tf15960723.tip.html A good idea whether you live and travel in an RV or not.  The idea saves space, keeps down clutter and if we are honest with ourselves we

probably don’t wear many of those T-shirts we seem to think we want from each attraction we stop at!  And I am as guilty as anyone.  I can’t tell you how much I spent on a “Little House on the Prairie” T-shirt I bought when we visited the area.  I just had to have it as I so love that book series and TV show.  And I have to admit I have worn it very little!  Speaking of cleaning the clutter and organizing your closet and clothes.  Here are 2 great products we sell to help you do that.

Hanging Organizer

https://rvspacesavers.com/shop/index.php?route=product/product&path=35&product_id=136

This hanging organizer not only works great for shoes but I use them for jeans, T-shirts and  bath towels. It has 10 compartments and only takes up 7 inches of space in the closet.

 This scarf and belt hanger takes up almost no room.  It has ten holes but depending on how big the scarves or belts are it can hold more than that.  Because I have very few shirts, I use scarves to combine things I do have so I don’t feel like I’m wearing the same thing all the time.  https://rvspacesavers.com/shop/index.php?route=product/product&path=35&product_id=137

After sitting in one spot near our kids for the summer, I always go through our closet and donate things we no longer wear…remember the hanger trick!  I feel like we are starting out fresh and organized when we head south again.

Trips, Places to See and Things To Do.  Who remembered to watch the meteor shower last night?

Meteor shower

 

 

We totally forgot.  However I heard the best times to watch were between 2-5 a.m. so even if we hadn’t forgotten, we probably wouldn’t have seen it!

 

The things we so enjoy doing in the summer when we’re in the Seattle area are enjoy all the fresh Farmer’s Markets and all the wonderful produce.

Beautiful bunch of beans

Chanterelle Mushrooms

Peaches from eastern Washington

Gorgeous Local Dahlias

King Salmon caught that morning

Huckleberries

 

Beautiful offerings at the Ballard Sunday Farmers Market.  It’s fun to visit with the farmers who are growing or picking and catching these things.  Lots of different choices, many of them organic and free range.  The huckleberries which are in short supply this year due to the drought are like little berries of gold!  $12.00 per cup!  Needless to say I left them there. Lots of beautiful black and blue berries which are plentiful. Homemade cheeses, free range eggs, wild salmon, homemade caramels (yum), beets, chard, cauliflower, several different kinds of mushrooms, heirloom tomatoes (reminded me of my mom’s).  And tons of other beautiful things all grown or raised in Washington.  Be sure and enjoy those markets where ever you are.  So much better than things bought in the supermarket and shipped in from who knows where.

If you have a Trip, Place To See or Thing To Do you would like to share please contact us and we are happy to put it in our newsletter.

Tips from Customers:  

From Danise:  Think outside the box…small space for trash container…. a small dog food container, rectangular with lid..fit nicely between stool and tub or other small  areas… discard the box which contains the  liners, put the extras in the bottom,which saves time and space.  Need thread??…..dental floss will work in many situations.  

From Marilu:  I love my rice cooker (that was in last week’s newsletter) to make rice and steam fresh veggies.

All great ideas…thanks for sharing

This idea was shared on Facebook this morning and since so many of us have animals, I thought it was worth sharing

RV Space Saving Tips from RV Space Savers

Share Button

As I write this newsletter today, we are traveling down I-5 to Fresno to attend my uncle’s memorial service.  He would have been 95 years old in October, was a WWII Vet and the patriarch of our family, loved and missed by many.  Sadly we are quietly losing the “greatest generation” and no one seems to be paying attention.  It would be nice if the media reported something positive for a change and recognized these heros rather than filling the airwaves with the latest Hollywood or deflategate scandal!  Memories of wonderful times spent with him remind me of all the changes he would have seen in his lifetime!  As I sit here in the truck writing this newsletter while Mike drives, I have a computer plugged into a 110 outlet in the dash all connected by a hotspot on my smart phone while the GPS is giving us directions!   Who had a clue  that just a few years ago there would be all these things to keep us so connected! I cant help but wonder what things will be like when we’re 95!  What will our RV’s look like?  Will more and more people be living in an rv, will there be many more ways to save space.  What will happen to fuel prices and how will our RV’s be powered?  What will happen to the tiny house movement?  Even with that movement, we will still need space savers and have products that we can use in multiple ways.  Lots of things to reflect on in our ever changing world.

Summertime tip:  Carry a collapsible cooler in your car to keep groceries cool on these hot days.  There are many kinds on the market.  Do a Google search and you will be amazed at all the different collapsible and space saving coolers there are to choose from..  We also take along some ice packs to help if we’re not going right home or have quite a distance to go between the market and the RV.

Another great tip:  More and more supermarkets are doing away with plastic bags and asking you to bring your own or pay for paper. These are great little mesh bags that take up very little space, are easy to carry and to wash.  https://rvspacesavers.com/shop/index.php?route=product/product&path=35&product_id=15.  And please keep those reusable shopping bags washed.  Here is an article well worth reading.  http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2014/01/06/reusable-grocery-bag-germs/4341739/.

One more tips I need to share this week:  Since it is sweet corn season in a lot of the country, here is a quick and easy way to cook and husk it.  https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&sqi=2&ved=0CDsQtwIwA2oVChMIgL-w9oiBxwIVCDiICh2dQgsv&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DU10MkdbzS54&ei=zCi5VYCpJYjwoASdha34Ag&usg=AFQjCNH-aYOFsnMnOCtPNiikGRxN0VkvVw&bvm=bv.99028883,d.cGU.  This is the way I always cook it and this really works. Absolutely no silk left on the ear!   Be sure to have a pot holder or glove that can stand the heat as it is VERY HOT when it comes out of the microwave. I use this silicone glove which is heat resistant to 600 degrees. https://rvspacesavers.com/shop/index.php?route=product/product&path=35&product_id=84.  Sadly our supplier has quit making these and I only have 2 left.

Trips, Places To See, Things To Do:  Having grown up in agriculture as kids, one of our favorite things to do as we travel is talk to growers, farmers and ranchers.  We do this in a variety of ways.  1) We love Farmers Markets and enjoy talking to the farmers who sell their produce.  2)  If we’re out driving around the area, we stop and  visit with them in the fields for a few minutes and 3) Our favorite is to call the County Extension Agent in the county we are staying in and find out what crops grow in the area and where we can get up close and personal with the farmers, ranchers and producers. Most people in agriculture are more than happy to educate us on how they grow their products and it is very interesting.  We have learned about so many things in our travels from growing, harvesting and packing avocados to growing and harvesting peanuts, cotton and sugarcane, just a few of the fun visits we have had.  Give it a try and let me know what you have learned.  You can always contact us at rvspacesavers@gmail.com

Your tips:  Helen sent in this tip…Mount a magnetic board or paint the inside of your cabinet door with magnetic paint…put spices in small metal cans and hang on door. And  speaking of tips…as we have continued to discuss the square clear plastic containers Joni.and Chris sent in these photos of how they repurpose those containers.

Great job Joni and Chris!  Love your organization!  Thanks for sharing.

Tips for Your RV from RV Space Savers

Share Button

Good Morning

We hope you are enjoying your summer travels or your summer home if you have a home you go back to in the summer.  Living in an RV is a fun experience and no matter what kind of RV we have, we all need to save space and weight.  It is important to most of us that there is a place for everything and everything has a place.  I know as we sit for a month or more, it seems as though we bring in things that we have not found that special place for so when it is time to be on the road again, it is important to find that storage space.

A couple of ideas that Rver’s use is: 1) If you bring something in, something else has to go out!  And 2)  After sitting in one place for a month or more, go through all the cabinets, drawers, doors, etc., (this goes for you guys as well in the basements).  It is amazing the things you find that you really don’t use or just haven’t kept those storage areas as organized as you do when you’re traveling and know you have to keep things straight to find things.  Try them both and see what works best for you.  It may be a combination of both.  Or do you have another idea?  If so, please share it at rvspacesavers@gmail.com and I will add it to an upcoming newsletter.

One of my favorite tips:

Mr. Clean Erasers really are magic!

Mr. Clean Magic Erasers.  They can be used to clean so many things and areas and best of all they are almost weightless and pack a mighty punch of cleaning power in a great space saving product.  One of the many things I use them for is to clean off the smudges left by bottles and cans inside the fridge.  Here is a whole list of things they can do.  https://www.mrclean.com/cleanbook/magic-erasers-101

 

Another great space saving and organizing tips:

Small towel bar

A simple towel rod which can be used to corral many different things  and all depending on what and where you plan to use them, you can possibly use a spring loaded curtain rod to do the same without having to screw in a towel bar. Lots of Rver’s use the spring loaded rods to keep things in the fridge while traveling.

  We also use them in the bedroom closet to keep things on the shelves.  Here’s a bunch more ideas.  http://organizingmadefun.blogspot.com/2015/06/11-ways-to-organize-with-towel-rods.html

A new product we are absolutely love is this Grill Racket.  We use it to make pizzas, kabobs, burgers, fish, shrimp, ham, steak tacos, you name it on the grill.  Keeps the mess outside and from heating up the inside on hot summer days.

 No more things falling through the grill! It is a non stick racket and so easy to use and clean up is fast.  Many of us had those little baskets but this works so much better it is amazing.  Check it out at https://rvspacesavers.com/shop/index.php?route=product/product&path=37&product_id=149

This week on Things to Do and Places To See:  North Cascades National Park is an amazing drive in the summer.  You can’t beat the scenery and there are 3 dams on the river to stop and visit as well

Diablo Dam Can you believe the color of the water!

as a couple of power houses, a boat tour on Diablo Lake or even stay at the Ross Lake Resort. The color of the water is mind blowing and is caused by the grinding of rock against rock producing a fine silt called “rock flour” which reacts to the light and causes the blue-green color.  Here are some great links: http://www.nps.gov/noca/index.htm;  http://www.seattle.gov/light/tours/skagit/;  http://rosslakeresort.com/

Customer tip:  Last week I shared the tip about storing dry dog food in square nut containers from Carol.  I received an email from Marijke who also uses those same containers for staples because they are square and she comments…something I learned from you at your seminar in Gillette!  Thanks Marijke.

Speaking of Marijke and Gillette…It’s a Small World after all!  While we were parked at the Thousand Trails Park in Palm Springs this winter, a couple was backing in beside us and getting set up.  The woman said “I know you…you give seminars on saving space!”  She called her husband and said this is the gal who gives seminars on space saving tips and ideas, he said “yes you taught us to roll all our clothes and I still do that!”  Made me smile. 🙂

New tip from a seminar attendee:  We write where we are camped on a dry eraser board in the car asking someone to rescue our dogs  if we should be in an accident & dogs are in the MH…Sue & Jim

A Better Way to Do Laundry

Carrying detergent, softener and static guard is not only a space issue, it is a weight issue.  Carrying those items weigh more than 8 pounds.  Now you can save space and weight by using WashEZE 3-in-1 sheets.  One sheet does it all.  Also the older we get the harder it is to lift those bottles and carry them to the Laundromat.  TIP:  If you have a washer/dryer combo in your RV, cut the sheets in half and put them in a lingerie bag to keep them from going down the drain.  And 1 sheet does a full load which is too much for the combos.
