Are you an RVer, looking for good company and tons of information about living life on the road? Four times a year, Airstreamers (and other mobile folks) from around the country gather at the January AlumaFiesta in AZ, February AlumaFlamingo in FL, early-summer AlumaPalooza in OH, and fall AlumaFandango in OR — attending dozens of informative seminars, partaking in roving happy hours, winning door prizes, listening to live music, doing yoga, cooking out, and making new friends. And you had better believe that whenever she can Ramona will be there! Ramona has been a full-time RVer for more than six years — she (along with her two cats) travels the country year-round in her 29-foot Airstream Excella named “Stella,” and has even been featured in the Saturday Evening Post in an article about alternative ideas about what “home” means. As a Professional Organizer, Ramona loves the challenge of showing her clients (both RVers and stationary folks) how well organized she can be in less than 200 square feet — she spreads the gospel of simple, clutter-free living wherever she goes. She also coaches potential full-timers on letting go of all the stuff and making the lifestyle changes that will allow them to hit the road permanently. She has a weekly blog on full-timing, and is working on a book entitled Real-Life RVing — about living and working on the road before hitting retirement age. If that weren’t enough, Ramona has a massive portfolio of travel photography and is also working on her first travel book, entitled Tin Can Travels: From Key West To Nova Scotia In An Airstream — based on her most recent trek up the East Coast. She also offers a series of Airstream-themed travel posters from her many destinations — each featuring a shiny little silver tin can, somewhere in the landscape! Ramona brings all her creative endeavors with her to each event — and there are 3 ways you can hook up with her along the way…
The great thing about RV travel is that your home base is completely portable. The big challenge is where the heck to put all your stuff in such a small space! Whether you are a full-timer or a weekend warrior, whether you have a Bambi or a big honking tri-axle — Professional Organizer Ramona Creel will teach you how to make the most of your RV storage space, and create a clutter-free living/vacationing/working environment.
During these sessions, Ramona’s usually giving away some neat RV organizing products — but you must be present to win!
Feel like you might need a bit more hands-on help decluttering your Airstream and maximizing your oh-so-limited space? Why not consider scheduling an onsite or virtual assessment of your current storage spaces! Ramona can either come to your rig during the rally or get you to send her photos of your space. You show her your stacks and piles, air your grievances, and talk about your situation (what’s working, what isn’t, and what frustrates you most about your set-up) — then she will provide you with a customized written plan for getting organized, complete with diagrams and product recommendations. You’ll have everything you need to organize the DIY-but-with-a-bit-of-expert-advice way! This sort of assessment normally runs $249 — but for those attending an AlumaEvent, the price is just $149!
When Ramona’s at an AlumaEvent, she can generally be found selling her wares and answering questions in the vendor tent. See Ramona’s travel photography and hear some of the stories that will be included in her Tin Can Travels book (and sign up to be notified when it is released — due out later this year). Pick up your favorite travel posters, postcards, magnets or stone coasters. Show your RVing pride with Airstream and full-timer themed bumper stickers. And get a copy of The A-To-Z Of Getting Organized: A Grown-Up Picture Book For The Chaotic And Cluttered. And if you can’t make it by, these items are all available at www.RamonaCreel.com/store.asp.
