Living in an RV full-time can be a rewarding experience, but it also comes with its own set of challenges, especially when it comes to storage and organization. The limited space requires creative solutions to keep everything in order without spending a lot of money. Luckily, there are plenty of cost-free ways to get organized, as demonstrated in the video at the end of the article. Here are ten of our favorite ideas from the video that you can implement today.

1. DIY Paper Bin

One of the easiest ways to create storage bins is by repurposing paper shopping bags. Simply cut off the handles, trim the top portion, and fold the sides down to create a sturdy bin. This is perfect for storing small items and can be customized with tape or paint for added durability and aesthetics.

2. Decanting with Reused Jars

Instead of buying new containers, use empty jars from pasta sauce or other food items to store pantry staples like rice or beans. This method not only saves money but also keeps your food items more stable and organized during travel days.

3. Repurposed Cardboard Boxes

Don't throw away those cardboard boxes from baking mixes or snacks. Cut them into sections and glue the ends shut to create custom-sized dividers for your drawers. These can be used to organize small clothing items like socks or underwear.

4. Shampoo Bottle Sponge Holder

Transform an empty shampoo bottle into a handy sponge holder. Cut off the top, create a notch in the front, and add a slit in the back for hanging. This keeps your sponge off the counter and allows it to dry properly, all without spending a dime.

5. Inside-Out Cardboard Boxes

Turn an old shipping box inside out to create a plain, sturdy storage container. Cut off the flaps and add handles for easy carrying. You can even line it with an old pillowcase or decorative paper for a more polished look.

6. Modified Food Packaging

Cut down the tops of food boxes like granola bars to make them more accessible and visually pleasing. This simple hack makes it easier to see how much you have left and keeps your pantry looking neat and tidy.

7. Labeled Spice Bottles

If you don't have a label maker, use tape and a marker to label the tops of your spice bottles. This quick fix allows you to easily identify your spices without having to pick up each bottle.

8. Reassembled Hot Chocolate Box

Disassemble a hot chocolate box and reassemble it inside out to create a plain, brown storage box. Add a piece of cardboard inside to act as a divider and use it to store items like napkins or sandwich bags.

9. Hoodie Folding Hack

Fold your hoodies in thirds and tuck them into the hood to create a compact, easy-to-stack bundle. This method keeps your hoodies organized and is also great for packing in a suitcase.

10. Tea Box Dispenser

Turn a tea box into a convenient dispenser by cutting a slit at the bottom. This allows you to easily pull out tea bags or other small items without having to open the entire box, keeping your space organized and functional.

These cost-free storage and organization ideas are not only practical but also easy to implement. By repurposing items you already have, you can keep your RV clutter-free without breaking the bank.
