30 Days 30 Shirts

You would think living in an RV your wardrobe would be pretty minimalist and it is, relatively! If you had seen my closet pre-RV it was just stupid, I could probably do a 365 Days 365 Shirts challenge. I’ve purged and purged and re-purged so many times over the past 2 years preparing for our downsize in to the RV and also the past year along our journey. But the reality is I still have more than I need.

The challenge is I have at least 30 T-shirts and tank tops. I don’t have to “dress” for work so T’s and tanks are my daily uniform, at least in the warmer months. We are headed West to visit some national parks soon and I know I will be tempted to buy their cool shirts. So in preparation for these eminent new purchases I need to make some room.

I’m encouraging you all to play along with me. It’s easy, just wear a shirt, wash it and don’t put it away, instead make 2 piles. One pile is for the ones you love and the other pile is for the not so much love Shirts. At the end of the 30 days re-visit the shirts and re-evaluate if you can put some in the go pile or if you maybe really missed one in the other.

My goal is to cut my collection in half, but a third would be satisfying as well. Up until now I have not regretted purging one item from my life over the past 2 years. But now that my very favorites are left this may cut a little deeper. Honestly it’s harder for me to purge my kids clothes than my own. Their 30 Days 30 Shirts challenge may be next.

Hope this inspires a few of you to shed some weight from your life that doesn’t bring you joy. Please post pics and leave feedback as much as possible. I will be posting daily pics on our Instagram page which also uploads directly to our TRAILin Facebook page, please subscribe to these to keep up with daily entries.

Even if your wardrobe isn’t in need of an overhaul at the moment you may know someone who could use a little help and encouragement, please share this with them!

Implosion of a Shelf

While we travel we encounter a lot of bumpy roads which sometimes lead to things not holding up well inside our home on wheels. One of these such instances was one of our built in storage shelf cabinets. One day when I went to retrieve some thing out of it I had discovered that the base of it had imploded. These cabinets are not very user friendly because they are very deep. They are made this way I suppose because they are the depth of the couch they are next to and double as a side table. Since we removed the couch these became kinda more of a nuisance then a usable addition to our home.

At the same time I discovered this implosion we were also removing book shelf that was also at the point of implosion and needed to come up with a plan for its replacement. Realizing even if we were going to simply fix the imploded base the only way to do so was to take off the side pho-wood panel. Since it’s stapled on like everything else in an RV it was easy to remove. Once off we realized we could build up a secondary shelf and reuse the panel for extra base and trim work.

We love the finished result. Love being able to access everything in this shelf easily. There is also another one of these shelf/cabinets on the other side of the wall which may be another project in our future. 
We also purchased a new table and chairs. We have never liked the pedestal table that came with our RV. It was heavy and the top came wobbly more than not when we traveled.

We love this new Ingatorp http://m.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/art/20221425/ IKEA table we got that has folding sides.We also got 2 IKEA http://m.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/art/10115067/ folding chairs and it’s so much easier on travel days to secure them. Simply fold and put under the table. We love IKEA, check out our IKEA post about all the RV friendly items we love, IKEA: Why RVers love it!

If you have never been to IKEA than you don’t know of all the awesomeness that it entails. Its one thing to just buy something online but the store itself is an adventure. We’ve been to several across the US and its pretty uncanny how they are all set up exactly the same. I know I know lots of stores do this, but they do it consistently. It really irks me to go into a superstore thinking I can find the product I’m seeking and not only have they relocated it but it is not carried at that said location. We love IKEA for this and so much more and here is why.

Here is a quick video of finished shelf https://youtu.be/Am30gfvzI04
