Welcome to my little ol' blog. I'll be upfront about it: I don't blog very often any more. If you found your way here because you read my book "Trailer Life," have a gander! But it's easier to keep up with me on Instagram or on my Facebook page. I have this long, drawn out theory on why I'm a terrible blogger, but that is a story for another day. Enjoy the ramblings of my life from the last 8 years or so.

Before and After Cleaning

I got really tired of this, and the fact that a phone would fall on my head if I were sitting in the chair below this cubby. I like things to be neat and clean. I have a hard time keeping up with my family though. And myself sometimes. And living in a trailer can make it hard because there is just no room for piles of stuff. And we are a piles of stuff kind of family. This cubby is supposed to be for a TV, but when we moved into our trailer we put our giant 35" inch TV in instead. And our leather couch and chair. Comfort over floor space!
Here it is after, and I'm now happy about it. Still not "perfect", but I like the way it is and can easily live with this. Tomorrow will be another before and after of a storage area above the kitchen. That one will be a doosey, and require a ladder.


  1. Hi Karrie, I'm not sure if we have ever met but our husbands know each other. Recently, I got tired of Cliff never putting the DVD's back in their cases or even in the right case. So I put all the DVD's in a CD/DVD album that zips close and stored all the cases. Now I don't have to dedicate space on a shelf for a million DVD cases or try to match the movies up with their cases. Just a tip in case you are looking for a few more inches of space. I also have one that only holds a few DVD's for when Cliff has overtime. Now I am off to start cleaning again myself! :)

  2. Wow, you have inspired me to clean out my hall closets so I can have room for my food storage!

  3. Great job!! I'm frustrated with my cleaning abilities right now. Oscar calls it the pigeon sindrome...I put every up and ledges or counters and not AWAY where it needs to be! :)
