Minimalist – Kitchen

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 TVBigfootCO2
  • 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

  1. I feel your pain. The downsizing is the hardest part, but it really is worth it. I’m surprised at how much I can cook in the RV without all the conveniences I had in sticks and bricks. A convection burner and an Instant Pot are my biggest appliances (besides the coffee machine). I’m looking forward to following your journey! Dawn

  2. Lol! Your hot water problem is much worse than you think 😳

    Unless you have an instant water heater your capacity is only 6-10 gallons 😎

    Don’t worry. You’ll get used to it and realize that a 5 gallon hot shower is a luxury
