If you live full-time in a RV, boat or even tiny home, you already know clutter issues can pile up if you don’t keep up with it. Living in small spaces makes you rethink how you look at possessions and their importance. The last thing you want is to be buried in mounds of stuff you don’t really need. In this article, not only are we’ll show just how to declutter and keep your RV and small spaces organized and tidy, but how to free yourself of unnecessary clutter.
Living in a van down by the river is a figurative expression meaning being a complete failure at life, a drain on society. However, nothing could be further than the truth for many, including us, who choose to live minimally while enjoying freedom and travel. So, fasten your seatbelts!

There’s seems to be a strange twist in recent trends within the RV community; especially with the full-timers.

We’ve been asked numerous times to share our story of how our dream began over lunches, dinners, campfires, happy hours and small talk. Though our story resonates with other full-time RVers our age, it still piques interest of those who may think we’re crazy.
