Why not take a picture of your favorite recipes?
Take the picture WITH the iPad.

LOL - the recipe thing is cracking me up. My wife has a bunch of recipes on her iPad.

We have a colander that collapses like this one. Tip - wait until it's dry to collapse it.

I've found this to be a good place to find batteries. Free shipping.

I'd like to know what folks are doing with these tiny closets.

We use wire hangers (take up less room than plastic) and those multi-pants hangers, also one of these hangs in the front which Doug & I share for socks and other small, personal items.

Works very well and uses vertical space rather than the limited cabinets. Lots of vertical space along the sides still goes to waste.

That "wasted" space along the sides of my full-height wardrobe closet is where I hang my mop and broom. And a long-handled squeegee for cleaing the windshield.

Floor of the closet holds a wire-frame fold-up mesh laundry basket that does double duty as a laundry hamper. When I reach the end of the trip, or when I'm ready to do laundry during a trip, the dirty clothes are already in the basket ready to go. Naturally, a deodorizer is in the closet down near the laundry basket, too.

Over-the-counter-door towel bar fits nicely on the top edge of the closet door (on the outside of the door), and holds a dish towel, very handy to my sink since the wardrobe closet is right next to the galley sink. To keep the towel from slipping off the bar in transit, I hold it in place with a couple of clothespins. If I wasn't traveling alone, that towel bar would hold a second bath towel instead, since the closet is also right opposite my wet bath.

By the way, I noticed in mine that when I open the wardrobe closet door all the way, it hits the corner of the "ottoman" seat (i.e. the curbside wheelwell box). I purchased a dome-shaped bumper and stuck it to that corner of the wheelwell box, so that the door doesn't get scarred up from hitting the corner. It's a "National Hardware V337 Soft Wall Door Stop." and I got a two-pack from Amazon for $6.37.

Hmmm, good ideas there for a full length closet.

We carry a hand brush only, and our mop on the road is a rag and elbow grease.

Ours is like a half-closet, with some space below hanging clothes as well as along the sides. I have a few screw-in hooks on the sides, that help a small bit.

We tried stacking baskets in there, couldn't keep them stabilized in transit. And, we're not real handy.

We did put leftover cedar paneling on the floor of the closet, which looks and smells great as well as hopefully providing a level of insect deterrent.

I started off that way, too, but my foot surgery a couple years ago resulted in an ankle that doesn't bend the way an ankle is supposed to (still, that's better than amputation!). Getting down on my knees and back up again is an ordeal. So, I had to have the long-handled cleaning tools.

I do carry a small handheld rechargeable vacuum for the upholstery and the velour "imitation mouse fur" on the walls. It's also good for getting dirt out of the pedestal table sockets (I can sit in a seat and clean the table sockets, so my bad flipper doesn't interfere).

We have one of those, as well, which sits in its receptacle on the floor of the closet, the cord looped around a small hook and then snaking up to plug in one of TWO sets of inside outlets in ours. This one the same that the flat screen Tv is plugged into in the back.

We recently picked up a tiny version of this vacuum, which runs off the cigarette lighter, to use when not plugged into electricity for any length of time. With a shedding dog, this helps keep after that, as the loose hair wants to become airborne with a brush.

towels & laundry & piling stuff in the closet, oh my!

I am trying to decide if I belong in this thread or not. Admittedly, I'm not taking trips in an Interstate. There are 5 us though. When we're packing it helps to remember we're in a small(ish) space.

We have the "pop-up" kind of hamper and we also use it as a laundry basket after we've folded it. I'm looking for a nice folding one though. Pray tell, what kind of deodorizer? Our pop-up laundry hamper came with an anti-funk deodorizer on it but it seems to be wearing out. I'm looking for something.

Good idea.
Regular towels seem to be a real estate luxury we can't afford. We use packtowels. Like, the backpacking kind. Conveniently, they each have a little loop on them. We put a couple of metal-looking 3M hooks in the bathroom for hanging towels. We even (gasp!) share towels to help out with space and laundry. Also, everyone has a personal packtowel washcloth & corresponding 3M hook. (Oh dear! I think my OCD is showing.)

We have wooden closets in our house without wheels. So, we use those in the trailer, too. We give them a workout, though. One hanger might have: a short sleeve shirt, a long sleeve shirt over that, and then maybe a hoodie or sweater over that (depending on the season.) All 5 of our rainjackets go on one hanger. Also, I tend to wear things more than once before washing. Meaning (in theory) that I can take fewer clothes.

Does this help with hamper-funk? (Or maybe I'm the only one battling hamper-funk?)

Anyone trying to do more with less space finds it a challenge and a work-in-progress, IMO. Of course you belong here!

I have tried layering clothing on hangers, we also have sticky hooks behind the driver seat which hold lightweight jackets and therefore don't take up precious closet space.

I abhor the look and smell of piles of dirty laundry. We have a popup, mesh hamper, which we store in the bathroom when we are traveling. I have a little hanging-pocket organizer on the wall in there, which holds razors, lotions, extra bars of my favorite soaps, etc., and that keeps odors of all kinds away.

You can pick up real lavender sachets many different places, which would be a good, natural deodorizer near laundry storage anywhere. If they start to lose their aroma, rub the sachet between your fingers and, voila!

However, the best deterrent to fermenting dirty laundry is---wash it! We do laundry at least once a week when we are on the road, more often if we have the grandbabies with us. I don't want to store, smell or look at a lot of dirty clothing.

I agree! I'm most comfortable with going about 4 days before doing laundry.... but that isn't always possible. Lavender is a great idea!

Maybe it's a man thing, but I prefer a packet of activated charcoal to any kind of sissy dried flowers for odor control.

Of course, there's the old standby, the box of baking soda, but what a mess if you tip it over!
