Home Organisation Tips For Busy Parents

When we started having kids, I realised it was much more difficult to keep our home organised with young children running around than it was when there were only two adults in the house. Our normal routines just didn't work well anymore, and the clutter and chaos seemed to be increasing by the day. We had to change how we organised our home by streamlining our belongings, altering our daily routine and developing new habits. In time we learned some quick and efficient ways to keep the key areas in our home clutter-free. I started this blog to share our experiences of transforming our home and pass on our tips for organising your home when you have young children to look after.

Quick Tips for Making a Caravan Stay More Comfortable

Staying in a caravan is typically more comfortable than spending your camping holiday in a tent, but even if a caravan is roomier and drier than a tent floor, you might still find it a bit cramped and unwelcoming. To ensure that your camping holiday will be enjoyable, you might need to add some features and accessories to the caravan that will allow you to relax and enjoy your campground, in or out of the camper. Note a few quick tips and added items you might consider for using in and around your own caravan.

Dehumidifier 

Caravans are notorious for trapping summertime humidity inside their walls, as they don't have much ventilation to allow that humidity to escape. Keeping the caravan windows open may not always be a solution, as this means letting in heat, dirt, sand, and so on. A small dehumidifier can make the caravan's interior space more comfortable, and also keep it protected from mould and mildew.

Herbs and plants

Even bringing small plants into the caravan can help to keep the air clean. A row of herbs or just one nice houseplant in front of a window of the caravan can be all you need to freshen up the space, and you might also consider something very aromatic, such as mint or basil, to make the caravan smell fresh and clean as well!

Window film

Caravan windows are often single-glazed and very thin, and do little to keep out heat and cold; you can have those windows double-glazed, but adding window film is a much more affordable alternative. Have a car window tint company do this work for you, so you choose the right film for caravan windows and have it applied properly. This can make the inside of the caravan more comfortable, and can even provide privacy when you're inside the camper but don't want to close the window treatments and block your own view to the outside.

Awning walls

A caravan might come with an awning to provide shade and protection from the elements, but this overhead cover may not be sufficient for keeping you comfortable when you're relaxing outside your caravan, and especially in inclement weather. Invest in awning walls that you can roll up when not needed, and unroll when you need protection from rain, high winds, and the like. This can make it easier for you to enjoy your time outside the caravan when on your next camping holiday.
