Ahhhhh, The Fun of Van Tetris!
We have begun the endless game of how to fit two humans and two 60 pound dogs and all their accompanying stuff, into 66 square feet. Van Tetris!
We figured out that all of our shoes, clothing, and personal items will fit into those little plastic drawer columns, and that they can be disassembled and stacked on top of each other to lessen the floorspace that they occupy.
Kitchen & Safe
We figured out that the little fire safe can be bolted to the floor of the van and secured from being carried away. We have opted for the low, flat Sterilite storage containers for the kitchen and pantry storage. We have four of the pantry storage containers, and it appears that 3-4 of them can stack on top of each other under the bed! We are enthused!
We also have a small drawer unit for office supplies, unused yet drawer, and electronic/wiring/construction tools.
And the obligatory folding chairs… of course!
Storage & Road Trip
And while we were working on the Van Tetris, my Father offered up some storage space in his garage for our family pictures and such that we will be retaining… so we have a road trip planned with a bare minimum supplies and some storage stuff!
“Yayyyy, road trip!” was shouted through the JUsT Us household!
