Happy New Year! Another year has gone…can you believe that? Seems like the older we get, the faster time goes by. That is why taking the time to celebrate with loved ones is so important. What better way to celebrate the New Year than to get together with friends and family in your RV! There are plenty of destinations that will provide you and your family with amazing memories and excitements. But before we jump right into the adventure, preparation and organization are just as important. By organizing ahead of time, you will allow more relaxation time while on the road. In this article, we’ll share a few simple RV storage ideas to help you efficiently pack and organize yourselves.
Let’s begin with understanding your pantry space. Before you get started organizing your items, plan your shopping trip based on your meal planning. You should definitely stockpile your pantry with foods such as cereal, canned goods, and fun camping snacks. As you stockpile these goods, you should also invest in a wired basket to help secure and hold the goods in the pantry. The reason for this is to prevent items from shifting and moving all over the place when the RV is in motion or when it goes over bumps on the road.
Depending on your pantry and the number of levels it has, you should definitely organize your goods from top to bottom based on the weight of each item. For example, the top of the pantry should contain small packaged snacks while the middle of the pantry should contain cereal and some canned food. Lastly, on the very bottom of the pantry, we recommend putting heavier items such as water bottles, bigger canned goods and any sort of items with some weight behind it.
Next up are baskets. That’s right – baskets! Baskets come in an array of sizes, colors, and materials that can be incorporated anywhere in your RV. Organize your supplies labeling each basket to store certain items such as plates and bowls in one basket while another basket holds all the utensils. The versatility of baskets goes beyond just storing your goodies. Depending on the kind of basket you have, you can hang your baskets from hooks for extra storage space as well as provide a nice décor touch to the RV. Take your organization one step further and label your baskets with tags to identify what each basket contains. Identifying your clothing items helps if you do not have a dresser or perhaps you simply want to take advantage of the extra space in the closet.
Here are some final touches you could easily implement to take your organization to the next level. One of the first tasks we recommend when you’re setting up your RV, is shelf liners. Shelf liners are simple applications that keep your items in place while protecting the surface underneath, and are especially useful in an RV. We highly recommend lining the drawers and shelves in your RV to help prevent spills and ease the cleanup process if an item should happen to fall or break. The liners provide an anti-slip layer so your items won’t be slipping and sliding all over the place while the RV is in motion. As an added bonus, shelf liners come in many different colors and patterns!
Organizing the space in your RV is going to take a bit of practice. Until you have gone on a few adventures and gotten the hang of the RV life, it can be overwhelming to decide what items are needed and not needed. Once you’ve organized everything, you’ll be all set!
