Can you help me think of creative ways to make room in small spaces?


We just had to start from scratch an downsize into a 30 foot 5th wheel RV in KOA campgrounds. Am struggling with making the most of the space we have available to work with. Could really use some inexpensive creative ideas for making this possible for us.

    Can you put a small shed on the lot? Otherwise sell or store a lot of stuff you don't absolutely need.

    These are the products I use to save stuff in my home. Some of them will work for your storage system to save room. Use bunk beds even for adults. Have less stuff even it's easy to get into buying more.

    Hope it helps!

    Hi Tina: In the kitchen, downsize the number of dishes, glasses and cups. If you don't have 8 people over for dinner, then don't have service for 8. I have service for 4. If there are more than that, we go out to eat, eat outside like a picnic and use paper plates and cups. For your closet, get a couple of S hooks and a couple lengths of chain. Put one of the ends of the S hook on the hanging rod and one end of the chain on the bottom of the S hook. Then, put your clothes on a hanger and put one hanger in every 2nd or 3rd link of the chain. This way, you're hanging things vertically and have more room. You can use under the bed storage, even make them yourself, like a door on wheels. Good luck

    Hi Tina, you want to get some enclosed rubbermade drawers and place them in areas that seem like wasted space, reduce the amount of dishes and utensils you have, use walls for storage where ever possible, and I have attached a link to help you as well.

    One other thing to do is put shelving in the cupboards, it will double the space for you
