For laundry I like to use the Purex 3 in 1 Sheets. Twenty two sheets in a 8x8x2 inch box and it takes the place of detergent, fabric softner and dryer sheets. Does a good job too. In fact that is what I used on my last two Iraq deployments and it got my uniforms and pt gear clean everytime.

When we started full timing we stored all our loose items and important papers in plastic boxes. That worked OK but it made the motorhome look rather dumpy. On a shopping trip to "Michael's" we found decorative storage boxes made to look like books and antique suitcases. They were a little pricey at normal prices but we happened be there when they were on a 2 for 1 sales. Now our important papers are stored in what looks like an big old antique book and my computer stuff and desk items are stored in a small antique looking suitcase. Paper for the printer in stored in another small treasure chest. All of these are out in the open and the motorhome looks like it was professionally decorated. This may not be good for the part timer but full timers should find this useful for some of their stuff.

I found a way to keep our kitchen trash can upright while traveling. I use an 8-gal can with a 13-gal trash bag with a drawstring (cinch sack). After inserting the bag into the can, I fold the top of the bag over the outside of the can. I positioned the can where I wanted it to be, against a cabinet. I grabbed the bag hanging on the back side of the can, pulled it tight, and slipped it between a cabinet door and the cabinet opening, on the hinged side. Pulling the bag through to the inside of the cabinet, it formed a pocket. I put a tennis ball in the pocket (inside the cabinet) and shut the door. The tennis ball keeps the bag from sliding through, and the bag holds the trash can in position. I don't know how well this will work if the trash can is full and heavy, but we empty the trash often.

Went to Michael's last night and they have lots of baskets on sale right now. 40% off. Couldn't find what we wanted, exactly... (I found two containers with hinged lids that I almost bought.) Went to Pier One and found something that worked perfectly and it was on sale, too. Now's the time to shop for storage containers, I guess.

No one appreciates a serviceman and service families as much as an old Veteran. Thank you so much Anthony21403 for your service.

The logical place for our trash can is in front of the fridge but it's really hard to find a short/wide waste basket with a lid that is only 13-1/2 inches tall (so the fridge door clears it) but still is wide enough to be useful. (We use grocery bags inside.) Bed Bath and beyond has one online right now but not all the stores carry it.

I use two eye hooks and a bunge cord to secure it to the wall under the fridge door. I'd love to put it inside the kitchen cabinet but I just can't give up the storage space under the sink for a wastebasket.
