What is essential to living with beauty and love? An open and inquisitive spirit. A commitment to integrity. A desire to always do better.

We talk about cultivating these intangibles in my film. On this page, we’re going to cover the tangibles: the things I’ve discovered, after much research, that make the daily difference.

1.The best tools

The one tool I’ve used thousands of times in the Champion to install and fix things is small enough to fit in the palm of my hand. This agile screwdriver, with a dozen interchangeable fittings, a ratcheting option, and the ability to bend it 90 degrees, gives you all the flexibility and torque you need. Invented by a friend-of-a-friend, you can get yours here:

The second most amazing tool is a tiny mirror with an LED light. Living small means having to reach out-of-the-way places, both inside and outside your rig. This delightful invention has saved me from much profanity! Find yours here.

2. The best food storage system

In a word? Yeti. In two words? Yeti hard or Yeti soft. This is the only cooler that keeps my chocolate unmelted during the hottest summer days. Get yours here.

3. The best cleaning products

Living inside, especially in a small space, means we need to be extra-careful about not polluting our indoor environment. The best nontoxic cleaning solutions are made from vinegar and baking soda. If you don’t want to DIY, the next best options are Simple Green, Meyers, and —–.
