Plastic Bag Storage
Several years ago one of our members suggested rolling up the plastic bags that come from the grocery and stuffing them into an empty tissue box. This has worked well for us, but we needed that valuable shelf space that the box was occupying. An alternative was to use the empty space underneath the shelves by attaching a tube to the underside of the shelf to store these bags. We used a flexible downspout connector obtained from a home improvement store. It can be extended if more length is needed, and the corrugations in the tube help keep the bags in place. It can be attached to the shelf with two tie-wraps. If there is a small gap between the shelf and the wall, a dowel rod can be placed on the shelf above and two long tie-wraps can be used to avoid screwing the tube into the shelf. This solution works great.

Solar lights are handy accessories to have at any campsite. But it isn’t always easy to find places to put them.
My solution was to buy two inexpensive plastic pots, cut Xs in the bottoms, and put the light stands through the holes. Now they can be placed in a sunny location during the day and moved to wherever light is needed after dark.

One of the challenges when showering in the motorhome or at a campground facility is how to keep the towel from getting wet as it brushes against the walls or floor of the shower while you are drying off. A wet towel leaves you chilled when you step outside the shower. A great solution is to use a swimmer’s chamois to dry off while still in the shower stall. The chamois is absorbent and removes most of the water, requiring only limited drying outside the shower. I’ve found this to be a much faster and warmer method of drying off. These types of chamois are available at swimming sports stores. They also work well at home.
