Name: Ilona Polcyn , my partner Daniel, our two sons Tycho, 13, and Fender, 7. Plus, two dogs. Location: Tilburg, The Netherlands Size: 3,229 square feet Years lived in: 7 years, owned I love to use my home as my test lab. If I haven't painted anything for a few weeks, the paint tins literally call out to me from the closet. I like a fresh white canvas decorated with vintage, design or handmade items, mostly in fresh or soft pastel colors. I'd much rather have one item that I really love rather than five things I just like. I don't shop on impulse. I will always take my time before I buy something for my home. READ MORE »

"Our thought was that we would suffer through living in this tiny space in order to travel to incredible places and see the US. However, we realized within a few weeks that we actually love the tiny living aspect that goes along with the RV lifestyle. We have less space and fewer possessions to worry about, and we are free to spend our time exploring other interests.

You can buy all the nice containers you want, and understand the golden rule of meal planning , but how do you actually decide what to make for the week? Meal templates are a great place to start for planning, but if you're more of a visual person, Instagram might have what you're looking for. A quick look through #mealprep on Instagram can be a little overwhelming. A lot of the photos are more fitness-related than actual meal inspiration. If you dig into the hashtag, however, there are some great meal prep photos that might actually be helpful. That's why I've rounded up my five favorite Instagrammers who I think have great ideas for meal prep and planning. There are some weight-loss and fitness things throughout these photos, but they're mostly of food. READ MORE »
