How to Organize Your Car
Don’t you hate it when you get in your car and it is a complete mess? Yeah we all feel that way. You can’t drive comfortably with clutter and whether you want to admit it or not, it’s embarrassing when you have passengers and your car looks like a trash can. But don’t worry here are a few tips on how to organize your car.
Once you’ve cleaned out your car it’s time to begin the organization. Take a nice binder that fits perfectly into your glovebox. Take a couple folders and organize all of your important papers or any other important documents you carry in your car into the binder so everything is easy to get to.
Take a shower caddy or two and use it as extra storage just hang them on the back of your seats, they tend to be deep and can hold a lot. If you have kids it’s a great way to keep their toys, books, snacks etc. organized and from ending up all over your car.
Cars are a black hole when it comes to extra change, dimes, quarters, pennies, all of them end up scattered everywhere. Stop that from happening by keeping a small empty cup (preferably one with a lid) in a cup holder and use it as a change holder. Problem solved and from there on you’ll know where some extra change is when you need 10 more cents for your morning coffee.
Stop throwing your trash on the floor of your car or stuffing it into the sides of your doors, I know it seems convenient but it makes the inside of your car so much less appealing. Take a cereal dispenser or just a small box you have laying around such as an empty tissue box (a small basket would even work) throw a small trash bag inside it and put it on the floor of your car, either in the front or back, whichever is most convenient for you. Dump your impromptu trashcan every time you get gas!
Cup Holder Cover
Cup holders are the worst to clean and they always somehow end up sticky from spills, along with crumbs caught up in them especially if you have little ones. An easy way to keep this from happening and keeping them clean is by using silicone cupcake liners, push one down into each cup holder in the car, when they start getting dirty just pull them out, wash them off and put right back. So simple.
Learning how to organize your car can change your life. Well, I guess you could go that far. If you work from your car a lot, or even if you only drive twice a week, keeping it clean is important… especially if you plan to sell it at some point down the road!
