I know there is plenty of space. But how does One store goodies/clothes/jars etc. without a lot of mess at the end of One's journey?

Hubby makes chutney etc as mentioned; handy to add to the odd cheese sarnie on a rainy day when we don't want to walk to the shops ........

I like the storage ideas at Lakeland Plastics and saw some see-through shoe boxes in another catalogue recently which I think might be useful whe motorhoming: in the fridge/under the bed etc........ but I don't want my food stuffs tasting of plastic tubs by the end of the hols

Apart from the fridge, you could use one or two cool boxes or bags to store your food Lizzy. This would solve the problem of where to keep the food secure while in transit, and retain the relative freshness as well. The key to living in motorhomes is that you just have to be really well orginised at all times. We normally carry enough food for one day and then restock while on the road, though we do keep bread, butter, cheese and a tin of bikkys for those midnight snacks. You mention there is plenty of space, and some would disagree, but it always amazes me how i,m forever losing things in such a small van. Howard.

Oh no! I lose plenty of things in the house! Had hoped that being in a van would help ........

We have not brought loads of 'special' containers for use in van, some people do, but for us its all in the packing. For us, clothes are never a problem they stay where there put, shoes and boots also. If we have cupboards with tins/jars we don't leave gaps, i.e. stuff in a box of cornflakes etc to fill

Have you come across those blue rectangular baskets which are used by supermarkets for packing various fruit and veg. Our local chinese packs their take-aways in them. They stack and interconnect and just fit into our storage units. They are great for everything inside the motorhome and I also use them in my rear garage for water hoses, electrical bits etc.
And they are Free.

We also use the chinese food boxes which by the way are what they transport mushrooms around in very useful. We have bought from focus stores these collapsable crates v cheap and v useful. Wife and I have one each allocation for clothes.

Plastic mesh type boxes, in various sizes, on sale at "Pound Shops" are very useful. As are those plastic boxes that fruit & veg are packed in at supermarkets. I use zip lock plastic bags for some clothes, like pants, socks, nankies, rolled flat before closing, like a vacuum pack, take up less room and easy to find.
