Top 5 Storage Solutions

The Jeep Wranglers are notoriously known for their lack of storage space. I am known for my organizational skills. I have tried many different solutions for storage in my Jeep. Below are my Top 5 favorite storage solutions.

5. Spiderweb Shade Grab bag

I love it because of all the colors they come in, 11 signature TrailMesh colors. Even purple. It's an easy access pouch that Velcros to your "glovebox" handle. This is where I clip my handheld walkie talkie when I'm off road.   

4. BlueRidge Overland Gear Molle Seat Back Panel  

This is great if you have younger kids, they can store all their stuff in the molle bags. I like to keep my "Grab and Go" items here; like a first aid kit, winter hat and gloves etc.  

3. Molle Bags
They come in all sizes and styles. These are great to store all my Jeep gear.  Both Blue Ridge Overland Gear and Justice Off Road carry these bags.

2. MorRyde Ammo Can Carrier with Molle Panel

This storage solution uses some awkward space really well. I have two. They go right over your inner rear fenders in the cargo area. Now I use craftsmen cloth bags instead of ammo cans. The ammo can handles were noisy as I drove down the road. You can attach a molle bag to the panel. Plus a bonus, the space between the molle 
panel and the inner fender can be used too.

1. Justice Off Road Molle Tailgate Panel 

Perfect for organizing all your off road needs with easy acess. It is a simple easy install as well.

Live Life to the Fullest

"Live Life To The Fullest" is something I tell myself all the time. I post it all the time as well. It's a pretty vague term that is hard to define. I believe it to mean something different to each individual person. Not everyone needs to skydive or climb Mt. Everest or travel the world to live their life to the fullest.   

Are you living your best life?  That's what I am trying to do. It's a work in progress everyday! Some days are easier than others.

When I first got my Jeep Wrangler back in 2013 is when this new adventure began for me. I knew something was missing as I was sleep walking my way through life. So began this adventure I am still on. 

I started with finding my passion, getting healthy, and de-cluttering my life. I found my passion, and am still de-cluttering. Just recently after not being happy with the body I saw in the mirror, I am getting back to healthy as I slipped. But isn't it always two steps forward one step back.

I set goals, created a bucket list, and started new hobbies.
Now I am on the next level of Living My Life to The Fullest. Time to look at myself and my life to figure out how to get to the next level. It is always a constant re-evaluation.

Recently, I came across a minimalist article and started down that path. I thought I had gotten rid of the clutter cluttering my home and life, but realized I still have a ways to go.

Minimalism isn't about having less, but getting rid of the stuff that prevents you from doing what you want and love. 

"The goal of minimalism is not to own as few things as possible… nor is the purpose to be constantly chasing less and less. The goal of minimalism is to be living your life centered on your passions and values."

Another great blog - Becoming a Minimalist

So on to the next level... What that is I'm still working on it but will keep you posted.             

This blog gives you 101 Ways to Life Your Life to the Fullest.

It gets pretty deep if you want to go that route. Here are 5 of the ways I picked out that I have been working on for myself. 

Live every day on a fresh new start. Don’t be held back by what happened yesterday, the day before, the week before, the year before, or even decades ago. Life is short, so live in the present moment.

Be true to who you are.Stop trying to please other people or to be someone else. It’s better to be an original version of yourself rather than be an exact duplicate of someone else.

Quit complaining.Don’t be like the howling dog, always howling and never doing anything. Stop complaining about your problems and work on them instead.

Rather than think “what if,” think “next time”. Don’t think about the things you can’t change (namely what has happened and other people’s thoughts) or unhappy things, because these are disempowering. Instead focus on the things you can action on. That’s the most constructive thing you can do in any situation.

Let go of unhappy past. This means past grievances, heartbreaks, sadness, disappointments, and anger.

My goal each Sunday is to post a Jeep Momma's Garage video on You Tube. However, that didn't happen this Sunday. I was inspired by a post I was tagged in on the Becoming a Minimalist Facebook page.

Ever since I became a Jeep owner I have been on a life journey to Enjoy My Life more. There has been a lot of self discovery and a lot of throwing out the old. It's all about simplifying and de-cluttering all aspects of my life. 

Just when I thought I maxed out the things I could de-clutter I was proved wrong. That post on Facebook had me re-evaluating the things in my home. 

So I spent the weekend getting rid of at least 15 bins worth of stuff. I threw out two large recycling bins of paper and threw out three bags of trash.

I know have found several things to Ebay and if those items sell I will have Jeep Parts money. I will also be having a yard sale to sell the rest. The fun part of this time is getting my family involved. 

I was able to get most of my family to join in on the purge. I still have one son to convince about how unimportant saving things can be.  

My family still has a long ways to go but we are getting there. I don't think there is an end to this. It is a constant work in progress, but during the process we are going to be living our best life. 

Here are some of my de-clutter, simplify my life blog posts with some good tips.
