From children’s toys to gym shoes and food, we carry our lives in our vehicles. But it’s only a matter of time until a spotless car can turn into a cluttered mess — only adding to the stress of everyday life. You shouldn’t have to dread the chaos every time you get behind the wheel. It’s time to get organized. Here are five tips that will help you de-clutter and organize your car:
- Cereal dispenser for garbage
It’s time to upgrade from the lone trash bag in the front seat. Using a cereal dispenser will protect your car from potential leaks and spills, as well as keep trash structured and contained. The dispenser’s lid will ensure trash will not fall out while driving.
- Shower-caddy for car fluids
How frustrating is it when you’re looking for the oil or air conditioning coolant and not being able to find it? Instead of letting fluids roll around the backseat or trunk, likely to be spilled or squished, simply store them in a shower-caddy. This way you can have all your essential fluids in one spot for your convenience.
- Couch remote holder for extra storage
No more colored pencils and books scattered over the back seat of the car. This trick is perfect for organizing kids toys and crafts within arms reach. It can also double as a seat protector from potential spills and damage.
- Quarters in a pill box
Somehow quarters seem to seemingly disappear into a black hole right when we’re about to park. Slipping under the seat and between cracks, it’s easy to lose track of pocket change. Instead, simply keep your quarters in a small pill bottle, which will be easier to spot and keep quarters in one place.
- Shelf in the trunk
Where do things go when they don’t have a place? The trunk. Installing an easy DIY removable shelf will not only give you more room, it will help you keep your stuff organized. You can easily hide valuables and organize objects into their own compartment. Another option along the same lines is to get an inexpensive, 4-compartment storage divider.
