When people make the transition from a house with a yard to a RV, many miss their plants and gardens. What some don’t realize is that it is possible to live fulltime on the road with plants. You simply grow smaller plants in pots or hanging baskets. In our RV, we use pots.
When we are traveling, we stick these small potted plants in the sink. What about growing a graden? We actually have a small garden growing in our bedroom. When traveling, we stick these pots on the toilet room floor or in the shower.
If you RV, do you have plants in your rig? If you live in a house with no yard, do you have a potted garden on a patio, window sill, or counter? Don’t forget to follow my blog to keep up with our journey.
Today I wanted to share with you a special spot in our fifth wheel-an extra closet! When we had our Class A, we had to store the vacuum in the already small hallway, the hoses and extensions underneath in storage, and the cleaning products underneath the sink. This particular 2006 Newmar has an extra closet between the toilet room and the master bedroom.
The top holds bulk toilet paper, hoses and extensions for the vacuum, carpet cleaning attachments, 2 hand-held brushes, and an extra essential oil diffuser*. *We sell essential oil diffusers on our doTERRA website. Check out our products here.
So what did you think of our utility closet? Do you have any extra space in your RV or trailer that you love? Write your comments below. I would love to hear from you. Don’t forget to follow our blog to keep up with our journey.
You might be wondering, “What are the Cedarwood Blocks for?”
“The unique power of cedar wood absorbs moisture and eliminates mildew and fungus. The natural wood also acts as a natural insect repellent, keeping away moths and other insects. Cedar blocks also deodorize the air and refresh the aroma in your cupboards, closets and storage spaces”
Fulltime RV living is usually an organizational Tetris. You have to find room for everything you need and want. The bathroom is no different. I wrote about the medicine cabinet and now want to show where I store the rest of our bathroom supplies.
Even though our bathroom has quite a bit of floor space, it actually doesn’t have a lot of cabinets. It has the medicine cabinet and the cabinet under the sink. I like to keep what we have to a minimal to keep life simple. So here is what is in our cabinet below the sink.
The bottom shelf has 5 towels, we own 6, and the top shelf has all the smaller items. The top shelf has wash rags, shower bags, hair clippers, toilet paper, and a wire basket of smaller items.
A few extra things to mention are:
I store bulk toilet paper in a different closet and just add a few rolls to this cabinet when we get low.
I cut my husband and boys’ hair with the hair clippers. I mention that in this post.
I plan to downsize to four towels when these towels get older. I want to switch over to faster drying towels.
What do you have in your bathroom cabinets, linen closet, or medicine cabinet? I’d love to read your blog if you write about this topic. Leave a link below in the comments. Don’t forget to follow my blog to keep up with our journey.

Awhile back I wrote about my capsule waredrobe here. I feel I need to follow that post up with sharing with you the rest of my clothes. Many people talk about what is in their closet but few talk about what is in their drawers. So here goes:
This shelf consists of 4 pajama pants, 2 tank tops, 2 night gowns (1 which is shorter and silkier), and 1 pajama outfit. I am currently wearing my gray pajama pants. Who says you can’t blog in your pajamas? 😉 Actually, since I wear skirts and dresses during the day, I use my pajama pants to do my exercises in. Ever try to do left lifts and butterfly kicks in a skirt? Not a modest sight!
Underwear and Bra Drawer
Sorry, you don’t get a picture of this for modesty reasons. I will tell you that I own 5 bras from Decent Exposures and 8 Fruit of the Loom underwear. I keep a couple extra underwear just in case we don’t get to the laundromat every 5-6 days. Decent Exposures makes custom-fit clothes and I have been using this company for going on five years now. Their bras are expensive but last me about one to two years and I can throw them in the wash with the rest of my clothes. I do not get anything for sharing their link. I just want other women that are struggling to be able to find bras that fit.
Shared Sock Drawer
We own 14 ankle-high white socks and about 13 various length black socks (most which were given to us). The green socks are my husband’s Army socks. My husband and I have shared a sock drawer since the beginning of our marriage. The first time we bought socks, we just decided to share the same brand and size to reduce the chaos with sock matching on laundry days. It usually is my size white socks but this current batch is his size. I often go barefoot unless we are hiking or it is raining or snowing.I typically wear the white socks with my tennis shoes and during bad weather wear tall black socks with my cowboy boots.
That is it in for my Pajamas and Undergarments. I plan to write about my shoes soon. What do you own? Don’t forget to follow my blog to keep up with my journey!
