Van Life Prep: The bed is for two things…

The bed is for two things… 

OK so day 7 of the Minimalists Month of Minimalism is ‘Get that damn TV out of your bedroom!’ But we don’t have a TV in ours. 

We agree that the bedroom is for two things, neither of them involve box sets, we also only have our phones in there for our alarms. 

So we’re doing something a little different – no TV after 9pm.  A whole hour (because we’re old people and love a 10pm bed time) of no screen stuff, we talk, we play cards, we read… although reading at 9pm is a good way to get yourself to sleep quickly! Told you we’re old… may even make it 8pm soon… 

The plan is to have a projector in the truck for movies, we don’t intend on having an actual TV at all, but we do love a good movie from time to time so may as well make it a cinematic experience. 

Craig is the TV watcher in our house – Kerry can go days without putting it on at all, but she does spend a lot of time working on her laptop or Mac so she gets her screen time in that way. 

Who’s the TV fiend in your household? Do you have a TV in your room? Do you have a ‘no tech before bed’ rule? We’d love to hear about it!
