Keep Your Car Organized

In Newsletters on March 22, 2013 at 2:14 pm

Always on the road? Loading and unloading your car daily? When someone gets in your car as a passenger do you have to first do a spring cleaning before they sit down? Here are a few pointers to help keep the clutter down!


Build In Time

  • The top rule for everything in the organizing world; daily, weekly as often as needed to meet your desired level of organization. Put it on your calendar. “Clean out car”. Is there a time during the week that you drive by a car wash? Create the routine of running through the car wash and then stopping by the vacuums to dump trash.



Trash Can

  • Do you have a place for trash? I prefer a small white plastic can from the dollar store. Keep it close and accessibly so you can quickly toss trash in when your in a hurry. You can also make it a habit to clean out trash and tidy up when your pumping gas.



Incoming and outgoing containers

  • Any type of container with handles, designed to easily collect specific items coming and going. They will contain everything neatly so that items don’t roll under your seats to get lost. At the end of the day you can simply carry 1 container instead of doing a balancing act.



Electronics and cords

  • Try ziplock bags clearly labelled for your many cords, adapters and chargers. Keeps them from getting tangled. Place them inside your center console and/or in the back pouch of the passenger seat.
