No matter if you live in a 3,000 sq ft house or a 400 sq ft RV, I guarantee these tiny living hacks can come into handy! My husband and I have been full-time RVers now for over 2 years and we have learned just how important every inch of space is. These products that I will share with you below are products that we actually use. None of these products are sponsored and we have purchased every one. I did use amazon affiliate links on most of the products below and by purchasing using those links it support us. Thank you!
1. Foldable Clothes Rack
I have to start this list off with our fold out clothes rack in our bathroom. This is a super sleek foldable rack that can be easily stored after use. The picture on the left below shows it in the stowed position and on the right shows it in use. I love this clothes rack because it has several different uses. It keeps us from setting clothes on the floor when we shower, I am able to use it when I need to steam a dress/shirt and we use it to just hang clothes up that need to dry. It is very handy! https://amzn.to/3klAHaL
2. Shampoo, Conditioner, and Body Wash Dispenser
Next on the list is our dispenser for shampoo and conditioner...this is a must have. I have read so many reviews on these prior to our purchase. Not matter what dispenser I looked at they all had similar negative reviews- they break easily, the dispenser does not working properly, refilling them can be difficult. BUT let me tell you. I am so glad we took the risk and bought one. We have had it for over a year and 1/2 now and the only thing that has gone wrong with it is one of our dispensers has broke (the conditioner one). So I am very happy with it still. It saves a ton of space, keeps you from bending down to pick up shampoo bottles and really makes a difference in a small shower! https://amzn.to/3DhWcCf
3. Extendable Table
Next up, is our dining space. I searched so many places for a small table that was not only modern, but functional for our small space. When I finally stumbled across this table walking through IKEA it was a no brainer. I had been looking on wayfair previously and all of the tables were hundreds of dollars, this was only cost $130. Also, the drop leaf makes a huge difference when having people over or if we just want a little extra space for ourselves. Obviously there is no amazon link for it because it is from IKEA. If you google white NORDVIKEN IKEA table it will pop up.
4. Foldable Dish Drying Rack
If you live in an RV you are all too familiar with hand washing dishes every single day. Finding a cute, foldable drying rack has been a game changer for us. We used to have a big white plastic one from Walmart and it took up way too much place. It was difficult to store and honestly just a total eye sore. Also, it got kind of nasty from water collecting in the bottom of it from the drying dishes. This bamboo rack doesn't collect water obviously, so it doesn't get nearly as nasty. It also collapses really easy. This drying rack is a bit more pricey at a price point of $28, but I believe it is worth every penny. https://amzn.to/2WoiEsv
5. Pillow Covers to Store Stuff in
I definitely saved the best for last. This is one of my absolute favorite tiny living hacks. Instead of buying designer pillows, buy designer pillow covers and fill them! In the picture below, I have an arrow pointing to a pillow. That pillow is not filled with stuffing, but 2 throw blankets. I did snag this pillow cover for only $2 at Dirt Cheap, but since they don't have any links I tried to find an off-white affordable version on Amazon. Here is a 2 pack of pillow covers for only $12. You can stuff them with more than just throws, but additional bedding or even towels. Get to stuffing! https://amzn.to/38dRZRv
