We are (my wife) the same way. Always make the bed when we get up. Keep everything in it's place so it always looks nice. Makes living in a small space enjoyable .

We are, as a couple others, minimalists though we are starting to add a few fridge magnets but the only place to stick them is the range hood. We already have a bunch of odd ball things in the S&B place that date from my world travels for work. Years back we had a '74 Kountry Aire 5er that had windows covered with decals from our US travels with that rig. I still have a 1980 or so vintage Wall Drug bumper sticker, an Opryland, and a Pike's Peak sticker among others on a cabinet door in my garage.

It is fun to collect 'things' from RV travels though.

I buy magnets from places visited and put them on the stove hood. I also decorate with pink flamingos since we are from Florida and we have a sign on a wire stand with a picture of our motorhome, names, hometown, etc. Great conversation starter.

We love our little Mexican bobble head turtles bought on Santispec beach for $0.50 USD each.

Have kept this saguaro on our dash for over two years. It is our mascot. It also has now grown above the sign.

Replaced the "artwork" that came with the coach with a fitting painting of snow capped mountains on the horizon at the end of a road. Other than that we have canvas prints of our favorite photos made and hang them where we can (not many walls)and we're not much on nick knacks, try to keep things simple, so most of our souvenirs are items we use or ornaments for the Christmas Tree at the S&B. We started off buying coffee mugs, but how many of those can you really store..........

Lapel pins. Usually below $7, small, specific, and easy to display (the first 100 or so)! I have well over 250 and have them displayed on homemade fabric banners.

I guess we fall into the 'if we can't eat it or use it" crowd. We are trying to downsize so we do not collect any longer. I have little things that we have bought, only things we need, like a spoon rest to replace one that broke, clothing if we see something we want (not usually destination oriented)...boring, huh?

Since going full time our quest for mementos is geared to collecting items we can use or display when and if we get off the road. It's like a second and third stage of life for us.

1st stage was before full time and we only stored things that would fit into the next life stage. We brought some decorative items to remind us of our past.

2nd stage is now - and on the road. We need very little so we look for things that will remind us of where we have been and the life we have now.

The 3rd stage will be either directly to a retirement community or a transition place toward that end. We want to have things that we can show and share with others as we reminisce about our life on the road.

I suppose souvineers have different meaning and value depending on your stage in life and whether you're on the vacation trail, weekender trail or full timer trail.

Pictures are nice - but we want those little keepsakes as reminders!

Have fun everyone!

You do realize that your "little" saguaro will be too tall to keep in your RV in about 50 years?
