RV Storage Tips Before You Begin…

1. Take Stock

Write down everything you own. I know, this is a monstrous task, but there really is no better way to organize your RV or little space than by knowing exactly what you have.

2. Purge the Useless Items

Do you really need 12 drinking cups and 20 plates? Unless you own a huge family, I doubt it. I’m a culprit, too.

I own 3 pairs of sunglasses. I don’t need them, but… y’know. Everyone has those things they just don’t desire to get rid of.

As fulltimers, we plan to get rid of everything we don’t use at least once per year. If you’re not living in an RV, I recommend doing this after every RV trip.

3. Designate a Put for Everything

And I do mean everything. Keys, your fly swatter, loose change, bike helmets, the RV trash can — you name it. It’s the only way you’ll ever get your RV to stay organized.

4.

Use the “One In, One Out” Rule

This is a grand way to stay on top of your organization goals. Anytime you bring something new into the RV, the ancient one should go out. For example…

If you bring a new sweater into the RV, an ancient sweater should be removed.

This law will assist you upgrade ancient stuff without keeping tons of unnecessary clutter. (Kayla hates this law, she’s gotta own her clothes! She’s getting better though!!)

Use the ‘one in, one out’ rule.[/tweet_box]

5. Stick to a Cleaning Schedule

With a home that moves, you own to put everything away before you start your drive. However, when you stay in one spot for any length of time (we sometimes stay at one site for over a month), daily cleaning can be overlooked and clutter builds up. No quantity of RV storage ideas will assist you if you don’t develop a routine.

We own a daily morning routine of cleaning up after breakfast.

Once we’re finished eating in the morning, Kayla and I love to take 20 minutes to wash the dishes and pick up anything lying around.

By doing a little pickup session daily, the cleaning is more manageable and never becomes a huge hassle.

Now — on to the RV storage ideas!


RV Kitchen Space Saving Ideas

Here are a few RV space saving ideas:

10. Purchase Tons of Suction Cup Hooks

The suction cup hook pictured above is from our shower, and this thing works wonders! I love anything you can use to hang stuff without putting holes anywhere because we’re planning on selling our RV when we’re done and desire to hold it’s value.

21.

Magnetic Spice Holder (Use Caution!)


These are super favorite, so I wanted to mention them. Just be wary of these magnetized spice racks, because Nikki Wynn from Gone With the Wynns said they didn’t work well for her. Maybe she didn’t set it up correct, but I’d rather not deal with spice every over my floor to discover out.

7. Install a Hanging Basket for Fruit

If you can discover a spot to put a hanging basket, they’re grand.

Kayla and I don’t really own anywhere we could put one, so unfortunately, we don’t own one.

28. Under-Shelf Baskets

You can use under-shelf baskets to add more storage space to your cupboards – and under the shelves in your fridge!

1. Put a Free-Standing Drawer Unit in a Cupboard (Secure w/ Bungee)

These cabinet-sized drawer units are pricey, but if you own the money they can be one of the best ways to use RV cabinet space that may otherwise be wasted.

Kayla and I don’t use them because of the price, but we’d love to own them if we had the additional money! Secure them with bungee cords to hold them from opening on the move.

31. Bungee Your RV Trash Can to the Wall

Sometimes an over-the-door trash can is just too little, and you need something bigger. Just take a bigger trash can and use some bungee cords and eye hooks to tie it to the wall; viola, a mobile-ready RV trash can that’s out of the way!

19. Airtight Square Canisters

Tupperware is one of the greatest things for storing food, but they can be hard to organize, to tell the least.

These square canisters (which are also airtight) are grand for maximizing your storage space!

If you can discover a way to stabilize it, an over-the-sink rack will add some much-needed kitchen space.

5. Replace Mixing Bowls with Stackable Nesting Bowls

Nesting bowls are a go-to RV space saving thought. We basically stopped using bowls in the RV until we found these because they just take up so much room. One of those “bowls” is actually a colander, which is great.

29.

Organize Bakeware with a Pan Organizer

Who says pan organizers are only for pans? Put your baking trays in them, too!

36. Or – Store Them in an Ancient Juice Bottle

If you can’t discover space for a paper towel rod, an ancient juice bottle will work to store bags. It may not store the whole roll, but it’s an simple way to get your bags out.

24. Floating Wine Rack

A floating wine rack probably isn’t your first thought to store wine glasses in your RV, but hey, you gotta own dreams of wine, right?

35.

Store Trash Bags on a Paper Towel Holder

Paper towel holders can be used to hold tons of diverse things. Use them to store your trash bags for simple access!

25. Lazy Susans

If you don’t know what a Lazy Susan is (I didn’t before I did some research on organization), it’s basically a plate that spins (just love the glass plate in your microwave). They are awesome! You can use them in the fridge or in cupboards to easily get to stuff in the back.

17. Use Curtain Tension Rods Vertically

You’ve probably heard of using curtain tension rods in cupboards to hold things from falling out.

But, own you thought of using them vertically to organize things? Attempt it out!

11. Fruit Hammocks

If you’re love us and can’t discover room for the hanging baskets, these fruit hammocks might work for you instead. I love them because the fruit ripens evenly so you don’t get spots over-ripened.

2. Get an Over-The-Door or Door-Mounted RV Trash Can

An RV trash can on the floor takes up a lot of space… but you need a trash can. Believe me – Kayla and I went weeks without a trash can in the RV and it’s a huge pain.

Diy truck bed storage ideas

This over-the-door trash can saves space and is totally out of the way!

32. Use Ancient Wipe Containers to Store Plastic Bags

Plastic bags tend to accumulate and take up way too much space. Instead of stuffing them in a dark corner of your RV, use an ancient wipe container to organize them!

16. Magnetize Your Cutting Board to the Underside of a Cabinet

Get some magnets to install on the back of your cutting board, and a sheet of metal to install under your cupboard: Boom, your cutting board is organized and out of the way.

30.

Magazine Rack Can Organizer

You can use magazine racks to organize the cans in your cupboard; plus, it will stop them from rolling around and making a mess.

15. Wall-Mounted Magnetic Strips

A wall-mounted magnetic strip is high on our wishlist as a way to store our knives. Put them away while driving, though – you don’t desire them to come flying off the wall if you crash!!

3. Use Storage Bins in Your RV Shelves

Storage bins are probably the number one most significant piece of the RV organization puzzle.

We own a dozen, and could probably use two dozen more. You can use them in cupboards, drawers, and in the exterior storage compartments. Label them for bonus points!

22. Knife Safe by Camping World

A excellent alternative to the magnetic strip for storing knives is the knife safe by Camping World. I’m still not certain I would leave them in this while driving, though.

23. Food Dispensers

Wall-mounted dry food dispensers are a grand way to free up some cupboard and counter space. Just put the contents in and throw the packaging!

It makes it easier to get to your food, too.

37. Collapsible RV Trash Can

If you haven’t already figured it out, I love collapsible stuff. This collapsible trash can takes up virtually no space, and it has plenty of room as an everyday trash can.

9. Install a Peg Board

We don’t own a spot for one of these ourselves, but I wish we did. A peg board on the wall looks love a really cool, simple way to organize the unorganizable: pots and pans.

13. Fold Out Spice Rack

This spice rack can be installed correct under a cabinet and will save tons of RV cabinet and counter space.

It beats our system – we own every the spices in a storage container, which is a pain when you own to dig out the one you want.

20. Spice Gripper Clips

Like I said, spices can be a pain to organize. These are another item high on our wishlist – spice gripper clips!

8.

Get a Roll-Up Sink Rack

Having an above the sink rack, rather than a countertop one, frees up that precious counter space. This model even rolls up for simple storage.

27. Use Towel Rods to Hold Pot Lids

Pot lids are the worst things to discover space for. They are awkward and never sit correct. Just use a curtain rod to hold them on the back of a cupboard!

12. Paper Plate Dispenser

Another item high on our wish list is this awesome paper plate dispenser.

[tweet_box design=”box_05″ float=”none”]GENIUS! Use a paper plate dispenser to save counter space![/tweet_box]

33.

Repurpose Coffee Creamer Containers

If you’re a coffee lover love we are, you’ve probably thrown out a lot of coffee creamer bottles. Next time you discover yourself running out of creamer, hold the bottle, clean it, and reuse it to store food! It takes up less space than most packaging.

26. Divided Organizers

These divided organizers are another grand way to save space. You can store drinkware, clothes, accessories, and more! You can create your own with a box and some cardboard dividers left over from packages if you desire to be thrifty.

6. Use Dish Cradles to Maximize RV Cabinet Space

These are way up on our wish list.

Stacking dishes vertically in a dish cradle makes them take up less space and, more importantly, makes it easier to get them out without needing to take anything off the top of them.

14. Dangling Mason Jars

This one’s cool, and affordable. Just get some mason jars and screw them into the ceiling to store little stuff!

4. Replace Your Tea Kettle with This Foldable One

Cookware can be the biggest space sucker of every the items on your RV. If you love to heat your water with a kettle, getting a collapsible tea kettle will save you a lot of room and headaches.

You can also get collapsible colanders and even collapsible pots!

38. Thumbtack Sandwich Baggies Inside Cabinet Doors

Thumbtacks can act out miracles. Just pin your sandwich baggie boxes correct to the back of a cupboard!

Keeping excellent records is really significant, especially for those of us self-employed. It can be hard to discover room to hold track of this stuff, which is why you should get one of these.

59.

Make a Storage Headboard

If you’re excellent at stitching, this is an exciting project to undertake. It could double as a shade for the window behind your bed if you own one.

57. Remodel Your Bunkbed Into a Closet or Office

This is a travel trailer space saving idea since most motorhomes don’t own bunk beds. It can be annoying having space used for something you simply don’t need or desire there. If you own a bunk bed, but don’t use it, you probably feel the same way.

If you’re feeling crafty, attempt converting that space into an office to get the most out of every square inch of your rig.

60.

Caddy Night Stand

Bedroom space is lacking in most RVs (besides under the bed, but who wants to pick up their bed every day?) A caddy night stand could solve that problem for you!
