I have been researching downsizing my kitchen and one phrase that came up very frequently was Minimalist Living. I think I am going to give that a try this week.
Anyone who knows me would be very surprised to hear that I was planning a minimalist or zero-waste lifestyle.
- I work in technology for a company called Gas Station TV
- I hate saving pop cans
- I enjoy modern conveniences
- Greg constantly turns off lights behind me
My carbon footprint looks like it belongs to Bigfoot.
However, I do realize when Greg and I are going to be living in the travel trailer, we will have to start considering many things that we (ok I) take for granted today.
Here are a few that affect the kitchen:
|Current Conveniences||Travel Trailer|
|Unlimited utilities||Limited by propane tank size|
|100 Gallon hot water tank||40 or 50 Gallon hot water tank|
|Dishwasher & disposal||No dishwasher, no disposal|
|50 Gallon trash bin & automatic pickup||No pickup and limited space|
|Full-size fridge & freezer||Medium fridge & freezer combo|
