3 Ways to Keep Your Mobile Home Clutter-Free
Mobile homes don’t necessarily offer as much space as you might be used to having. If you’ve recently moved into a mobile home, you may be dealing with a clutter problem. Clutter can accumulate easily in a mobile home because of its space limitations. Fortunately, there are ways to combat disorganization and clutter in a smaller living space. Here are three things you can do to prevent all your things from taking over your mobile home:
1. Go through everything you own every two months or so.
Only so much stuff can fit into your mobile home. So, it’s essential that you frequently assess what you can clear out. If you know you aren’t going to use something in the next year, it’s time to get rid of it. Donate it or sell it. There’s no need for it to take up precious space.
2. Put up some shelves.
If your mobile home didn’t come with any shelves on the walls or in the closets, consider putting some up. This will give you some extra spots to store things like books, decorative items, blankets, pictures, etc. Racks and shelves can also work wonders in the kitchen if you’re dealing with

Maybe you could consider getting rid of your TV or buying a smaller bed. Consider what you truly need, and consider the benefits of simplifying your life. Remember that the stuff you own won’t necessarily make you happy. However, having enough room for your friends and family to stay over in your mobile home will.
Living in a mobile home does require you to put forth some extra effort to keep things clutter-free. There aren’t as many nooks, crannies, and closets to shove excess items in. Fortunately, after you’ve lived in a mobile home for a while, you’ll probably fully embrace a totally clutter-free, simpler life, and you’ll likely feel lighter as a result.

Interesting reading, as we currently are in need of replacing living room ceiling. The bead board I like …we have a coastal theme in our home. Something I will look into after replacing the roof.
When I lived in my former 14' X 70' mh, I took the paneling off one of the hall walls and made it an opened shelf pantry. Dh put some 2'X4's across the opening and I painted them white and it looked very pretty with the colorful home canned jars of fruits and vegetable, etc. I couldn't believe how much that floor to ceiling area held!! I wish I could do the same thing here but this home's kitchen is very large and well appointed so not really necessary.
Thanks for commenting Susan!
Living in mobile home can be bit tough but we can make it easy by some inovative storage ideas. We can make a maximum use of walls to store the things, door-windows shelves. By putting some closets on the corners wherever it is possible. Living can be easy in mobile home by sorting the things creatively. http://www.article-submit.net
