You have made the big decision to become a Fulltime Family, but now what? You have a home full of belongings and you need to decide what to store, what to bring with you, and what to sell or donate.  Here are some items to help get your started on your journey to Fulltime RV Life.

These Avery Removable Labels will help to keep you organized during your downsizing process. These labels will stay where placed and come off cleanly.

It is likely you will find plenty to throw out. Contractor bags are larger and thicker than regular kitchen bags.

If you are like most people, you will have pictures to store. The Iris Photo Keeper will keep your pictures sorted and safe.

It’s a good idea to scan all your important papers so you have digitized copies with you. The Brother DS-620 Mobile Color Page Scanner is small enough to keep with you on the road.


Once your papers are scanned you will want to store them in a water and fireproof safe, along with other irreplaceable items you will leave in storage. The Honeywell Fire and Waterproof Safe is large enough to fit full size sheets of paper along with other small items like old pictures and jewelry.


For the important papers you will bring with you a lighter envelop-style fireproof bag is essential. The Large Home Safe Security Money Bag is fire proof to 1100 degrees, water resistant, and large enough for several passports, cash, and other must have documents.

When it comes to storage, vacuum bags are ideal. They take up less than half the space as boxes and when sealed are waterproof. This set from Ziploc has a variety of sizes to allow for bulky, lighter items and smaller, heavier ones.

Once everything is in storage you will want to protect it from pest and moisture. Old Fashioned Moth Balls don’t smell great, but they work well to repel bugs and rodents.

The DampRid products are excellent for keeping humidity down.

When it comes time for the garage sale you will need signs for the neighborhood. This kit also includes price tags, a change apron and more.

You will need bags for your garage sale. If you don’t already have a drawer full, you can get some from Amazon.
