The Eternal Quest for Stowage

Now sneaking up on a year on the water, we are beginning now to make more and more revisions to make the living space reflect the way we. . . um. . .actually live in it.  I thought I'd pass along a few of the things we did yesterday.

Trying to wrangle the kitchen clutter, we've added a second shelf beneath our glassware shelf to accommodate tea things and toiletry items.

The cloth bins were a dollar store find, and serve to keep things easy to reach while preventing them from leaping to their deaths whenever a wake hits us.
To make a bit more room, we've moved our tea and coffee cups to hooks above the sink area.

We had just enough space to make room for all our cups and mugs above the sink.
The upshot has been that we can now actually FIND things when we need them.  It's an ongoing process, contouring the living space to the way you live, and in a small space like a shantyboat or tiny home, small changes can make big differences in the quality of life.  Over the next few days, we'll be moving around some of the hanging rails we have on board, and hopefully FINALLY getting our bathtub and shower in workable shape. 

Stay Tuned.
