Time for a Good Old Fashioned Spring Clean!

20200507_192852

Today, I have decided to embark on a new challenge!

In other words, I’ve decided it’s time for a good old-fashioned ‘clear out’ or ‘spring cleaning!’

When mom and I first started this new chapter, we decided we would live by the ‘sevens rule.’

When it came to clothing, we would only allow ourselves 7 shirts, 7 shorts, 7 pairs of jeans, 7 underthings, and so on… with only 2 good pairs of walking shoes, one for every day, and a back up (just in case), and a pair of ‘muck boots’ for rainy weather…

I know that both mom and I have gone way over the limit! It’s time to see what we actually wear vs what things perhaps could be donated!

As for pots and pans, we pretty much brought everything we had! However, a number of our pieces are cast iron, which adds to the overall weight limit for traveling… Oops!

In fact, we only use 1 or 2 pieces on a daily basis! And we only bring out our big ‘Dutch Oven’ when mom wants to make a big pot of corn on the cob! Personally, I prefer it roasted over the fire! At best, we use up some aluminum foil!

Starting from one end of our small 22 foot camper to the other, we are going to go through each item on hand, and see what needs to go! Some things will most likely either go to storage, be sold or donated to a worthy cause! Other things are so well-worn that they will be put in the dumpster!

It amazes me just how much ‘stuff’ we have been able to shove into our little homestead on wheels!

Our RV may be small, but the task ahead of us is bigger than you would expect!

Until next time,

Peace, love and safe travels,
