I love Ikea....also, the Container Store.

Places I need to stay out of, for the most part.

Some recently-acquired small-space consumer goods that I decided to consolidate into a blog post for brevity: Downsized tea kettle, downsized wine glasses, USB-chargeable small personal fan, GSI backpacking wine carafe, tablet holder, collapsible under-counter basket, plus links to some previously-cited items.

The Container Store is awesome. Their prices are not.

The Container Store is pricey, and I seldom go in there.

I do love TJMaxx and Tuesday morning, where you can often find nifty little items at bargain prices......which, as we know, are the very best kinds of prices.

Sometimes when I see or hear of something I want, I will google it to see if there is a better price somewhere else.....like on Amazon.

I try to never pay full price for anything other than groceries.....then use those clipped coupons whenever possible.

Spend less, do more.

xposted from the WDYGFYTT thread (poster BoldAdventure was my inspiration) - magnetic organizer board before-and-after shot, with fabrication instructions in the blog post (note the caveats if you aim to make yourself something similar).

Ok,,, these are cool.
Silipint - Unbreakable Drinking Glasses

I have a couple... They bounce... But still spill your beer.... They are easy to wash... No special packing required!!! And they keep your drink hot or cold longer than glass or plastic!!!

I can see these for Rally Mementos!!!

Interblog your project looks fantastic. (As did the inspiration piece that we also admired) Nice write up on your blog.

Great idea IB!

That area behind the drivers seat begs to be used productively.

Doug put hooks up on ours.

It' s been awhile since I've posted here but when I saw this, I thought about Maggie and this Airstream thread. Perhaps this will help someone.
It's a hook that works without knocking a hole in the siding. It is from Vipp.com
Here's a couple of photos. The hook bends down and that relaxes the suction cup. Then move the black hook up, the suction engages and this is like cement. They are expensive. One package that contains two hooks = $45.00 + $10.00 for S/H
But for me, they work.
And Hello Maggie I hope all is going well with you and Lilly!

Nothing earth-shattering in these simple ideas, but I reached the limit of my patience with shoe clutter (especially with a teenage girl on board earlier this week) and so here are the first two small-space solutions that I came up with for shoe management.

These shoe solutions are outstanding! We just got back from a 17 day, 2800 mile road trip through Iowa and Wisconsin. Took our AI instead of our trailer so that we could move fast and furious. Since that kind of trip requires the purchase of many souvenirs for family and friends I hunted - and found - all sorts of nooks and crannies to load up goodies. I'm still amazed at how much you cram into these vehicles. I love seeing how you guys all modify the space to your needs.

The GSI Outdoors Glacier Stainless Toaster... ten bucks Amazon Prime. You have to RTFM (which is quite short obviously), and it's labor-intensive, but it does make perfectly acceptable toast on top of your SMEV. Folds flat (about as thick as an iPhone) and has its own velcro storage case. For those times when you just can't fire up the generator and run a real toaster. Definitely a good purchase for me because I do not like cold squishy bread.
