Airstream Refrigerator & Freezer Defrost + Cleaning + Organization

When we did our kitchen tour we had a few questions about our Fridge/Freezer setup. Before we hit the road in 2 weeks we decided to use our ample water supply to give the fridge & freezer a good cleaning, defrosting, and organize. We take you along because why not?

Meanwhile Frog Balls are pickled Brussel Sprouts. We both love pickled food but especially Courtney. The pickled Brussel Sprouts may sound awful (as awful as frog balls perhaps?) but they are better than pickles any day!

Let us know what you think! Would you like to see more home tours? We’d love to hear your thoughts!

Tuesday Talk – The Never-Ending Task of Downsizing

On Tuesday’s we’d like to answer questions sent to us from viewer’s like you and share some of the details of our Airstream life.

This week we’re continuing in our theme of Organization for the New Year. We’re once again talking about downsizing. We’ve done a LOT of downsizing in the last couple of years and we now live in a 200 sq ft Airstream but we’re STILL downsizing. We give our take on it and the tips that work best for us.

Do you have any suggestions on how to deal with clutter? We’d love to hear about them in the comments below.

Tuesday Talk – Organization & Finding Everything a Home

On Tuesday’s we’d like to answer questions sent to us from viewer’s like you and share some of the details of our Airstream life.

This week we’re starting our January New Years series on Organization discussing our top tip for keeping any space, but especially a tiny space clutter-free. Make sure to find everything you own a home. We discuss why this is so important, how sometimes it takes a few tries to find the right home for things, what to do if you are not the organizer, and Courtney’s nightly routine which keeps things neat and tidy in the Airstream. Clutter is a pain anywhere but especially in tiny spaces like our Airstream home. We discuss how we deal with it.

Do you have any suggestions on how to deal with clutter? We’d love to hear about them in the comments below.

How & Why We Chose a Leer Shell for our 2008 Dodge Ram

Storage is KEY when you live full time in any RV but especially an Airstream. We knew we needed some safe, secure and weatherproof storage in Clifford, our truck. Steve walks you through the process we took in picking out and getting our Leer Shell.


If you have any questions about our truck, or anything else about our Airstream life please let us know in the comments!

Airstream Condiment Storage Solution – Why Vinegar is NOT our Favorite Smell

Continuing on our random journey through our Airstream storage solutions we come to condiment storage. Unlike the bar storage in the last post we didn’t hit this storage solution out of the park on the first shot. In fact we had 2 separate moves (remember we’ve only moved a total of 5 times) where we opened the Airstream after unhitching to find a distinct vinegar smell inside. Yum! I guess vinegar isn’t the worst thing to have spill in transit but it’s not the most pleasant either. Today I’ll walk you through what now works and what we tried that didn’t quite work. Learning experiences shared somehow make them more worthwhile and seem less stupid.Continue Reading

Airstream Bar Organization: Why Is the Rum Gone?

This is the first in a series of posts about how we’ve chosen to organize our lives in our new home, a 30 ft Airstream Classic Limited we’ve named Charlie. So I thought I would start with some of the most important items we own… the alcohol! Just kidding! Though trying to figure out where to store tall and oddly shaped GLASS bottles is a concern when you’re house has wheels, not much storage space, and is prone to bump and move quite a bit. So this is what we came up with, and don’t worry we still have the rum!Continue Reading

Finding Room for Hobbies

Steve and I are big believers in living healthy balanced lives. We eat well, exercise on a regular basis, prioritize our sleep, ¬†and try to maintain healthy habits. While all of these things are important there is one area in our lives that we prioritize and that doesn’t get the same hype of mainstream media attention. Our hobbies. Steve is an avid photographer (as witnessed by fulltimeexplorers.com and his Etsy page). Meanwhile I spread my leisure focus on a few areas: knitting, reading, and cooking. Why are these hobbies important?Continue Reading

One Week and Counting to Tiny Living

One week from today our family will move into our Airstream Charlie and begin our lives as Full Time RVers…well kinda. We’ll still own our home(s). The house we live in now will go on the market on April 4th. The other has renter’s until August and then it too will be sold. In the meantime we will be living in the Airstream at a local KOA learning the ins and outs of tiny living while still working our full time jobs.

Am I excited? YOU BET I AM! I am also scared out of my mind. This is going to be a VERY BIG change. Not only do we have to adjust to living in 200 sqft from 1500 sqft, we also have to learn all the ins and outs of our new home. How to tow it. How to empty the tanks. How to fill tanks. Batteries, propane, electricity. The list goes on. I know in a few months time we’ll have this all down but it’s still a little overwhelming to start with.Continue Reading
